The three Twister 2's in the field ended at places 1,2 and 3.
The weather conditions were very good (good thermals whole the day, almost no wind during the first 6 rounds and some wind the last 2 rounds). 95% of the flights it was very easy to fly the target time. The chalange was to survive the other 5%.

Hi,

does there exist a new build manual for Twister 2 or do all got the old one from Twister 1?
Especially i can not believe that there will fit a 10mm thick servo 200mm away from the root of the wing in front of the spar.

The maual says an 8mm servo but you are right that might not fit.

For Twister 2 servo's should be placed behind the spar. Preferable as close to the root as possible. A 9mm servo (hyperion) wil fit 20mm from the root inside the carbonfibre triangle.
I am working on a new manual but am so busy that i can hardly find time for it.

Alex,

How would one go about procuring a Twister2 from outside the US? I'm moving to switzerland in the fall, and I've been drooling over Paul's Twister 1's since he got them... I'll be selling most of my RC gear when I go, so I might be able to actually afford one!

Do you have a website in europe, or do you just do it person to person? And with switzerland in the schengen zone, how's that affect shipping and taxes?

Thanks,

Jon

For Switzerland you can order them directly with me.
You can buy them whitout taxes but customs will charge you 6% if i am right. Shipping will be 45 euro.

6% taxes is better than 15%+ VAT I still win!

I'm moving in august, so I'll place the order when I get there

Thanks!

VAT is 7.6% in Switzerland. Still not that bad.

In switzerland, yes. But you pay the VAT from the selling country when in the EU. And I believe it is much higher in the NL...

Kai, I can tell you for having lived there that you probably don't want to do that... Shipping from Switzerland is very expensive! Whatever you saved by shipping to switzerland from taxes and then bouncing it back to california would probably come out more expensive for you... Unless you intend to visit in Switzerland for the euro-tour?

19% and it would have been 20% without the economical crises.
