BoxFly 30 inch foamboard for windy weather

This is a 30" foamboard sport airplane that flies very well in the wind. Ihave not flown it in heavy wind but in wind of 15 = 18 mph it flies great sometime when the wind is at 25mph I want to take it to the field and give it a try.

The video was made in a little wind 10 =12 mph and it didn't seem to have any effect on the plane.

I am going to do a build post on it in the scratch-build section. I am using a towerpro motor on it when I do the build I will list all of those thing hopefully with plans. I will be calling it BoxFly I will try to post an update here when I get started.

Bill,

Rolling circle with a high-wing plane is crazy but I like it. That looks like something I would do.
