JW60 - with Peter Wick designed airfoil


I was lucky to be asked to build a JW with an experimental Peter Wick airfoil (don't know which one).
Turned out pretty nice. It took a bit more dialing in of the CG but I managed to get a 206 over Thanksgiving week up at Weldon.

How did the PW airfoil fly in comparison to the JW airfoil?

Fast. Takes a bit more reflex than I expected from PW. Wasn't good enough to beat the original foil.

Update: I flew her this weekend at Weldon and got it consistantly in the 190's but sadly it was lost at over 150mph. On to bigger and better.
