Mako 48??????


Trying to gauge interest in the Mako, Jason and I are considering doing a run or two of them.

Vic did a nice job on his design, seems a shame to let it die.

Thanks

Tough call.
I would definitely be interested in a 48" design with a high aspect ratio wing.
But the Mako not an easy plane to build and fly. Both Aaron and I struggled with it until we were happy. I think the design still needs a little tweaking.
OTOH, JW's can be built like crap with inexpensive gear and still fly great.
Now what about the Sonic?
or a 48" JW?

JW 48....
same fuse...and the tip of the standed wing , with the smaller chord would give a slightly longer tail. Be easy to build strong.
You guys wouldn't have to change much.

The old Sonic would be cool to bring back, cool flying wing, and simple to build and great for newbies! I would get a couple.

I'm gonna re cover my old Sonic or this "Schwing" wing that Doug Turner cut from 10 yrs ago that has the old JW foil on it
