Awesome, the season is starting up and the new super light 38s are gonna be the ultimate "fly in the pits" plane.

I had some good Juka footage from last August that I finally got edited.

Had some fun hanging out with Mike from DW today and flying the new ultralight models. We flew the 38" Juka and Edge ultralights.

The "UL" planes have very light wing loading and have a softer depron that is stiff but flexible enough to absorb impacts.

Here's a few photos, I have some video cooking that shows off it's slofly capabilities.

Beach flying is the best, but park flying in Southern California in winter time is pretty good too!

Here's a video of the new Juka 38" Ultralight. You like low wing loading and effortless 3D?

Wow thanks for that Flopgun. I'm going to have to get a really good pilot to fly the Edge before I can beat that video. Should be no problem. lol

i'm really starting to groove with the 48 DW Yak 54. It's just a great airframe. So smooth and predictable. Hovers and rollers right on the deck now without even a sweat. Such as sweet plane, all on 3S 2200s.

If you haven't flown a 48, do yourself a favor and just get one. It's that sweet. Probably my favorite of all the DWs.

I really need to try one of those ultralights now. I can pull all the gear from the 34" raven.
