yes, and at full throttle, its not quite so stealthy

Azhar, do you have more spare 42% Raven canopies?
or perhaps if you are still at the factory, have them put a couple fresh ones on the next shipment manifest?

thanks

Lots of guys are running the Falcon 27x11 and are really liking it. I would like to try one in the near future.
For what it's worth, the Falcon CF props are wood props with some carbon over them. They're not built like a Mejzlik. Not saying that they're sub-par, but that's how they're built.
The Mej 27x10TH is an excellent prop as well.

I have a 27x12TH which I really like but that wont make sound. If anyone wants to try that prop just let me know.

Do you think the Falcon's are lighter or heavier than the same size Mejzlik?

The Falcon props are roughly 20% lighter weight than the equivalent Mejzlik. This is primarily due to the fact that they're really a wood prop covered in CF.

The goal is the approx AUW of the lite 175 grams with the durability of the std.

Custom hollow rectangular carbon spar comes out of the autoclave this weekend. Slightly less weight than the wood spar but hopefully more torsionally ridged, thus less wing warping at higher aileron defection. May improve performance.

Heck just using welders instead of CA is suppose to save roughly 6 grams. Next I am stripping the insulation off just one wire in a set. lol

Personally I have just as much fun attempting to improve planes as flying them. I know I am total R&D geek & I love it.
