Will do, I saw the video of the XL and it is about perfect, THX!

Yeah, Lee should be willing to cut it for you. He's done a bunch of them for local guys that have seen mine fly and want it. Just tell him Todd sent you over to get one. I call it the Deep Reaper, because it's basically a Grim Reaper, but much deeper from nose to tail. He has two airfoil versions, a high lift version that's slower, and a semi-symmetrical that's a bit faster, which is what I'm flying.

Thanks Todd. Your flights with it sure look good. I'm really not in a rush to get a different platform yet and would like to see/read more info, pictures, user feedbacks, etc. before I take any plunge. Now to go back and watch your video again and add another 'hit' to your view count.

Van. That's cool. That wing is still sort of at the end of it's development, so the user build threads are in the process of being made now. There are a bunch of other beta guys out there with this plane now who are supposed to start posting build blogs and stuff. I was the Alpha pilot, got the first one. He built this at my request actually. I guess request is a light word for it, more like begging on my hands and knees, harassing continually, threatening to kill myself if he didn't do it for me... and such.

And please, hit away on my video! It won't hurt my feelings at all!

Did you order the DOSD+ V2 from a Dragon Labs distributor..?

http://www.dragonlabs.net/site/DragonOSDplus/Purchase

John (JMTECH) builds them in Canada and sells them through distributors. Mike (JettPilot) builds the Dragon Link UHF systems in the U.S. and distributes them himself. You can't order both from the same place, unfortunately.

....and, you can still play very effectively with the Dragon Link UHF by itself....you may want to evaluate it's performance without the DOSD+ V2 in the beginning as, it is fairly involved to set it up.
