Flew the Wedgee a few weeks ago at Byron in 20-25 knots and it behaved itself really well, and fast.
Clocked it out of a dive at 115 MPH without any ballast.

Really Happy !!!

Also had a fly at Beechmont a few days later in less than 5 knots and was worried it wouldn't stay up because there was not enough lift to keep other things up. So just on dark I gave it a chuck and it had no problem staying up.

Since then I've been waiting for a big day to DS it but no luck.

I've now moulded a full carbon one that will come out at about 700grams and about 920 ballasted. Popped it out of the mould last night. There is about 24 hrs put into it so far but when it pops straight out of the mould looking like this, it's worth it!!

The carbon one is soooo stiff and looks good too.
Have to build like mad to finish this to take to Manilla next week, maiden this weekend would be nice.

I've just added some comments and photos from the maiden flight here https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=1111538
