nicely done. My last DW had probably had a equal amount of new weight added by all the glue repairs. It was a Frankenstein, but still flew well.

I still think i liked the 40" the most out of all the DWs, and I've had a lot of them now up to 48"

I have been meaning to try a 55" again, it's been a while since I have.

Does DW make anything anymore that would fly on UMX Beast-sized electronics? I thought they used to make 22" planes, but I didn't see them on the site last time I checked.

Thinking of making some SFG's for my 38" Yak. How do you guys go about sizing them?

Not much on the net about the actual design theory.

I' say look at several kits that have them and then make something that is similar based on your size plane. It's going to be a trail and error project most likely.

I sort of figured that was the case. In all the posts I've ever seen about SFG's that people made, I've never actually deciphered how they came to actually decide on the size of them.
