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.
