Hey Joe,

think you should bring it to Milang next year. With 3 kg ballast it might be a "task appropriate aeroplane"

I'll fly it ballasted for the three tasks if you fly yours empty for the three tasks... would be a fun challenge!

I got to fly my new Maxa last week (only 2 test flights in light but gusty breeze). OK, it's really Larry's plane, but now it's linked to my Tx and I have permission to put it through it's paces and check out all aspects, even if it destroys the plane. I love being able to do that when it's not my plane But don't worry. The last time I destroyed a plane was due to a mid-aire in 1998 (John Roe, where are you?), so Larry's plane is in good hands.

As far as the Maxa itself, I already wrote about it. It's a very nice flying plane and JW did a great job.

Hey guys, the planes are getting to be great. That's good because now a pilot won't have any excuses. Maxa joins my list of the top 6 planes (it was a list of 5, but I can't drop one

So just out of curiosity, what are the other 5?

If I were to guess, they'd have to be some variation of the following:
Aspire
Xplorer
Supra
Icon2
???? I can't come up with a fifth.
