My favorite is definitely the enlarged version of the z-surfer flying wing. Absolutely amazing flight performance.

Yep - I am interested too on a plan - it a real beauty you have there. AUW is shurely very low (14 gr?).

EDIT: found it: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...41#post5241241

My favorite from selfmades is the cutlass jet (see jet thread), from the originals i like most the classic rod bipe and the new eagle (mono). Relates to x-twins.

Bye

MIT Kid - thanks for inspiration. Just made a Z-Surfer with 28'' span (a really large bird) - 20gr AUW. My god the frame with some lead I just tossed slightly, it soared through the garden about 30m. With the gear it is faster as I believed, as MIT-Kid said, its in full authrority. Its the first xt-derivate which does not stay in anyway way in turns. If you stop the turn on the Tx, it goes horizontal and flies straight along. Just with left/right (diode mode, no throttle) it spirals up like an real eagle in a thermal. With min throttle it climbs. Made my day . But - only for totally calm conditions, with this wing area it will be drifted over large distances without any control and will be damaged. The holes in the tips are for pinning it to the wall as it fits to no shelf or so

Bye

I saw the prototype of this fly at MIFF in Kansas City last month. I will get one as soon as they are out later this month. Flew very well.
