Also how are you launching it? I found the best way is the way showed in this video.

Sorry to hear about your motor. My motor is normally barely warm to touch after flying so I'm thinking you had a dud. I don't fly WOT for long periods though so that helps.

To launch I throw it like a frisbee, increasing the throttle as it leaves my hands. Couldn't be easier. I don't get how people have trouble launching this wing.

Hi guys,

I just received my Jug kit and I'm really excited about the build. I just got finished unboxing and sizing everything up for joining the wings and I a little stumped. From most if not all the videos I've watched of this wing build, I noticed the center section of the wing matched up perfectly with the other two halves and extended quite far toward the trailing edge. Check this picture out. Is this right or do I have the wrong center section for a Jug.





Any thoughts?

Looks like you might have gotten the center section for a Flinch. I'm sure Rub will take care of you. Also, you didn't get balsa elevons? I know with my kit I got balsa, and the winglets were black. Where did you get this kit from?

It was won at the NEFPV Feat Meet a few weeks ago. Ruben contacted me and informed me it was packed incorrectly. Quick response? Thanks Ruben!

I'm really pumped to get this build started. I want to have it ready for NAFPV in Aug.

I was looking at the Bohemouth also anyone have a good build thread on this bird?

Behemoth build log is not done yet. I want to but been far too hot in the shop, 90*+ all week it seems like and going into the weekend. Just sitting in there is bad.
I can do a walk through for the behemoth that is already done? It's like the jugg build but extra spars for motor mount.
