But my opinion is, if you want the best, build a Primo.
Yes, I have to agree: I have Aeromax Yak 40, MOJO 60, EE 60, LamYak, Aeromax Edge 25, as well as Twist 40, U Can Do 60 full fuse jobs, and the Primo 40 is really the best of all, though they are all fun and I try to give them all air time. I recently built a Goldberg Ultimate Bipe and I have to say that is a pretty great plane too though not really a 3D plane.

They're all fun. Exactly. I do think the Primo is the top design, but I think there's good reason to own, fly and prefer any one of them. for the short time I owned it, I loved my tt40. Not for a moment did I think it was the hottest thing out there. but it was a total blast to fly! And in that frame of mind, I'm really lookin' forward to the new aeroworks

Wayne are you an electronics tech also.
Well I'm wanting to fly tomarrow but I have a couple of people coming up to pick up puppies.
I mowed my own personal flying field but it had so much grass it looks like a hayfield, now all I need to do is rake it an bail it.
DR of course we want a video of you mowing' maybe you can put a keychain cam on your hat an show us your mowers flatspin.

OK now I'm in the market for a cheap but good key chain cam to video my flatspins, so if anyone has any suggestions please post them.

I went flying last sunday an we had a 20 mph wind so most of the guys didn't show up. I told them they all need a twist.
I was taking the twist O 700 ft or so up wind an then vertical till I couldn't see her anymore an then put her in a flat spin. By the time she got down to say30 ft she was 500 ft down wind from me. We counted 31 flatspins an I know that if i move my cg back to 5 1/4 I can get more.
At 1 time I could almost get her to hover in a flatspin but that was back whren the cg was at 5 1/2 an I had the thumbs to handle her

Happy Twisting

Thats good news Kerwin. Keep bangin' those sticks!

Well we had a fun day down at the field, although not without a couple of problems. I believe balsabusted has a short vid but it's not that exciting. I'm sure he'll post it just the same. I did get some great flights in on my pylon racer and found a couple of problems to work on. I think she is going a real contender this year!! Those boys are in deep do-do!

Sorry about the high winds for some of you. We know all about that out here!

Bob, I cut the racer open and changed the tank and plumbing.....twice! I found a better tank, a 2 oz slim design that I like better. It was with the engine that Bill G gave me from his old racer. It fits perfectly and I probably didn't gain any weight. If anything I may have lost a few grams! Is it racing season yet? Let's get it on!!

Looks like you have my kind of luck Plow. That looked like it was going to be a nice landing, but the gear didn't think so.
