I'm lovin' these incredible flying machines. When I started flying RC last summer, I had zero interest in them. Then I saw some of Lee's wing combat videos. An aerial demolition derby! But the funny thing is, after the planes collide, they seldom suffer significant damage and often recover from the hit and launch an immediate retaliatory strike against the plane that hit them! Just too cool!
I bought one of Lee's Assassin kits which are made of tough EPP foam and covered with iron-on laminate. I've yet to hurt it in spite of several hard doinks into hillsides flying slope lift in high winds.
I scratchbuilt one of Apache Pilot's 42" Divinity wings. At around 8.8 oz. AUW it's a delightful slow flyer.
I'm currently building one of Lee's Scythe 26" EPP wings which come two to a kit. I'll build this one light as a park flyer. The other I plan to build with an Assassin motor as a tough speed wing that can handle higher winds and wing combat.
