Looks very good. XC in Switzerland sure would be interesting, is there even a flat straight road in the entire country?. You may want to consider painting the wing/stab bottoms flat black and use the brightest orange you can find for the fin/rudder.

Hi there, yeah there is one road an pass in front of my flying filed :P

even though I have an XC plane, as you correctly pointed I dont have the "place" to do actual XC. So I would just dream about it and walk around if I can lets say 0 carbon XC

Not a good idea aerotowing without ailerons. May be itīs better ( and safer for the plane) to add a motor.

btw: wonderful plane!

Well Bern, I had a blast last weekend aerotowing. I think it depends how good your plane is. Greg design is just great and I had control from the first second. I did 3 tows and it went totally relax, I almost could not believe it. Many people told me that was a bad idea, so to make sure I tried and it was actually a great Idea

A colleague was towing his oldy woody also RE and had not issues.

and who needs ailerons anyway??

So not to hijack this thread, but ....

I was able to talk Greg out of this incredible ship and have begun a conversion to a eXC#8-F model. Details here.
