Couple new additions - Stout JW60 and Light XR

Here is my neighbor's (KPIG) newest edition: a 47 oz JW60 - will be hard to miss this one:






And here is my latest: an ultralight CombatWings XR... done in Nelson LITEfilm covering... used a 5 cell battery and 311 ($9 ea) servos, along with a Berg RX. 14.95 ounces, maidened today... flies great! Need to add some tail weight, had a quarter taped on the bottom of the rear and the elevons still were trimmed up from flat for flat flight.



Got a little fruity on the bottom side, lol:



Here is my hatch, closed:



Opened:



Here is the instructions for the covering I used:



Sorta transparent:

Who's Nelson and when did he start making monokote light?

Seriously though, I have mixed feelings about the color schemes on those planes. You guys need to get out a little more. (from he who shouldn't be talking)

NICE... talk about COLORS!!!!

belive it or not the JW is a very nice flyer at the high 40oz range... you'll freak out how light it will still fly and what it can penetrate..

I admit.... it was 2AM when I started covered the bottom of the plane, some beer was involved, but no village people. Macho macho plane. lol
