Can YOU help me?

I'm looking for...
-A FAST slope plane (way faster than a Zagi)
-Preferably EPP
-Kit under or around $100.00
-Something like a JW?? (Seems a bit heavy if I'm into DS)

does one exist, or should I just go with a JW??

You're in San Diego. Check out the Moth and Bluto by Harris Nelson: http://www.northcountyflyingmachines.com

I was at Parker the other week, and the JW's were definitely the fastest foamies flying. If you've got the lift, or you're going to try DS'ing, I thing the JW would be a great choice - and weight really isn't and issue for DS'ers. The Bandit from Composite Specialties is another good fast sloper - very fast, and flies more like a conventional plane than a wing.


...big swell this weekend...

Hi Scott,

I don't thik the blutto is in production yet.
I don't mean to discourage you but I bought 2 yes 2 moth kits and could not get either of them to fly properly, Harris (the creator of the Moth) could not get they to fly either. I know of several people that have bought these kits and love them but I have personaly have terrible luck with them..

You never told me how those wing core worked??

The Bandit is a modified Moth.

I called the Bandit people just now, and they said they won't have any Bandits until next year....So maybe a Moth.
