How do you see this as an improvement to Perfect, as you can already get a Perfect in this weight range?
Will you fly it in Cyprus?????
Good luck with the new toy.

Well travelling I would like 3 piece wing. Actually before EC I wanted initially 2 piece but smaller model so it fitted my box... So now I need to build box but that is ok. It stills goes well in airline companies I use.
The reason i prefer it in other ways is that I think it will shift the weight even further into the midpart of the model. As expained before there is no need for joiners, pins, endgrains, etc. The Perfection wing is built in most ways like the Precision and we know how that helps in torsion rigidity.
It also means less work putting things together and ballast comes in the right spot.
But not only that. You also know that Prestige fuse weights came down by more than 100g using this kind of fuse and also the elevator is genious. Philip and Benjamin and whoever contributed to the Prestige did a nice development there.

First flights today and the comments so far is "Good reaction on rudder and ailerons as hoped for. Feeling of lightness and no drag".

Jojo,
the length of flaps compared to ailerons looks shorter than in other models.
I am guessing it still slows down on lading because of the lighter weight. Is that the case?

Flaps is actually 1cm longer than the Perfect

One thing... I am not in Czech Republic but get picture/feedback on it all the time and chime in as much as I can. Latest was that they nailed the elevator setting and it is perfectly in center with normal flight without any adjustments. So calculations were obviously good (CG at what we expect will be the most used 109-110mm)

I understand another well known manufacturer in Bulgaria will also have a new fuselage along the same general lines. Who would have thought so many F3J designs would sprout from the little " Miles" LJ

Does that imply that the Perfection wings will come with RDS and or sealed servo locations, JoJo?
