Thanks Daniel, that superlight is relaxing to fly, even when you are 2 inches off the ground you're two mistakes high lol.

I have one coming up to Seattle soon.

ha ha nice, I love those knife edge hovers. Even the lightest DWs handle the wind no problem.

Amazing how light that thing looks for being what is (to me) a large plane.

And it was a stiff breeze, but I had been anxious to have Eran fly it . And he didn't disappoint me

I'm going to have to take some video of the Juka at night flying. The thing is absolutely awesome! I am having so much fun with this plane right now. I fly at a softball field and get there right after the last game and when they turn the lights off. They think I'm nuts until I light the thing up and then hear a bunch of old drunk guys yelling that it looks like a UFO or "hey, fly it over here so I can hit it with my beer can." Nevertheless, it's a ton of fun and thoroughly enjoy punching holes in the sky.
