Scary powerful. I guess that explains the puddle of wee wee in the video.

CK has no issues against using bungees. Good thing too.

He ain't got squat for an arm.

After 28 years without a flying wing, I got an old Stryker F-27B together and started flying it. Then I was given a Tuff Wing 24 and started flying that too. They don't seem very loud to me and both fly very well.

I fly a Key Cam on the Stryker B model, if I'm gentle on elevator the video can be very steady.

Both planes can fly well averaging around 55 Watts of power, this is surprising since the TW24 is much smaller and lighter than the B model. The F-27B is still using its original brush motor, the TW24 is using an outrunner.

A big advantage of the flying wing is that it fits much easier into the back seat of a car or in the trunk, than a plane with a fuselage and tail.

Power off glide is excellent on both planes, neither has a folding prop. Spot landings would be easier if these planes had spoilers or speed brakes.

A friend built a FW that is larger than the Stryker, he used foam insulation board and a tractor motor. This FW is very light and can fly in a very small airspace but also handles the wind very well.

Thing about the flying wings I fly is that they allow me to fly in wind conditions that ground most of my other electric planes. To me that is a very valuable attribute.

The prop isn't spinning at 32,000 rpm 1/4" from the trailing edge either.

The big issue is I cant throw a 105'' wing at 21 lbs to 20 mph to take off.
The bungee is a smooth no brainer launch for her.
