Very nice; thank you Jason

Thanks Jason for showing me how it all turned out. I like it a lot.

The fuselage wing mount is solid. Like it a lot. The wing surface is very pro. Great molding. Love the fuselage streamlining aft of the wings max point of aero thickness. (duh)

Yourself and Bill have anguished on this for some time. I hope success here will bring future projects to life in shorter cycles.

Nice color scheme as well.

Thank you Bruce

We both flew the JW yesterday. And thank you Bruce for the Priveledge. There are so many things that i like about this JW, and rather than this sounding like some sort of commercial, i will be brief, and not rant on about how perfect the fit, finish, and general appearance is. It launched easily, and flew out and up into 25-30 mph winds. Bruce had trimmed it out with previous flights, but in the end, its the airfoil, and general planform of the craft that give it its function.
I watched and clocked Bruce for about 15 minutes, with a 234mph. Nervous when he offered to let me fly it, i was more than compelled to do so. Finally i could compare it to all the other JWs, and Planks in general, that i have flown.

Clearly it is the most stable, most controlable plank for me yet. Comparable to some or a lot of glass planes. It is a slope pilots dream for sure. Transport it easily, Put those standard size, fast, bullet-proof servos on each elevon, and in no time its ready to fly. Two thousand amp battery in place, so you can fly for hours on a charge. No stress, easy to put a lot of laps in. I just wish it came with flaps for landing. ( Thats a joke with a plank by the way)
I would take this plane with me flying, every where and every time. Not sure if i would combat it for the first 500 flights though. It is the kind of plane that you could anticipate flying for years. Only a vertical, or rocks could damage this plane.
Can't wait to have one of my own. Even if i only went to 223 with it.
Thank you again Bruce.
