This is the second flight with Bill's Freewing Mirage 2000C V2 Tiger Meet 80mm EDF Jet. John maidened this beautiful jet for Bill and flew this second flight as well. I don't think I have ever seen Bill as excited as I did during both the maiden and this flight.

I flew a sortie with my Freewing Lippisch P-.15 with one of my new 1800's through wildfire smoke lol

Freewing Lippisch P.15 64mm EDF Jet Test Flight With Scorpion 1800mAh 75C 3S Lipo Battery (4 min 52 sec)

Here are the Pros and Cons for this German Concept Jet EDF Flying Wing:

Pros:
- Nice long flight times for an EDF Jet, especially with this Scorpion Competition 1800mAh 75C 3S Lipo Battery
- It looks amazing
- This is a rare RC Model
- Very stable
- Has a wide flight envelope
- It can be used with a lot of different batteries and sizes
- This plane handles crashes well

Cons:
- A pilot figure would have been great
- It can be a challenge to launch without a good launcher or a launch switch setup.

This is my maiden flight with my ZOHD Dart in very smokey air due to wildfires all around me:

ZOHD Dart Sweepforward Wing FPV Racing Wing RC Plane LOS Maiden Flight In Wildfire Smoke (4 min 46 sec)

These are the review notes for this RC Plane:

Pros:
- It is fast
- Long flight times
- The flight envelope is very wide
- The easiest PNP build I have ever built
- This is one of the least expensive RC Planes I've ever reviewed with this quality
- It comes with a gyro that has an easy launch flight controller built-in just like the ZOHD Orbit Wing.
- The RC Airplane looks cool with its forward wing design.
- There is room for an FPV Camera and VTX. The canopy top is perfect for modifying to install your favorite FPV gear.
- It uses common 3S 1300 batteries up to 3s 1800's depending on how you have the battery bay configured. I used a 3S 1300 and still got very long flight times

Cons:
- I am not aware of any at this point.
