Tony.

The GWS 190 certainly is a great flying aeroplane. On my second flight I kept thinking "This is almost as good as a Formosa II.

I preformed an Avalanche this morning and despite the aeroplane being in a weird unstable attitude recovery took only about 25 feet.

I have started my paint job. When I flew this morning. The grey on grey on grey made visibility difficult when flying at a distance but this is not a major problem. The aeroplane is so controllable that you will not use up a lot of sky while flying.

190

ken great looking plane. I was going to go with the white paint scheme with green splotches but I allready have to many white planes so I think I will go down the camo route and hope I can see the bigger plane.

Nice, Mr Lin, but it seems to be dated 2004 so it's not a real genuine GWS 190 sloper like mine - or have I got it wrong?
