that looks sweet in the air Jordan! You sure do some amazing work! And it sure does have some vertical for it's weight!

btw, that poor lake seems to be getting drier and drier every time I see it!

Are you going to kit these in any way?.....not that I have the time at the moment to build one, more so thinking out aloud.....

Nice one Jordan. Looks good in the air. I haven't started mine. I had thought about rushing it in time for Camperdown but a few other things got in the way so I decided I'll leave it til after (and weather cools down) and wait til I gets my mojo back. I seem to be feeling a bit over building right now. And I guess I prolly will do a better job if I don't rush it.

Nice maiden Jordan! That thing looks as beautiful in the air as it does standing still. I'm amazed at the carry of that size wing at 38.4 oz airframe. It should be great for 10 mph day out at the beach bluff or load it up a bit and rip it up at Cajon or Fermin. I'm sure you'll get to see them ripping up a coastal cliff here in the states soon.

Thanks for another beaut!

Cheers,
Jim

Plans..


Hi Jordan

A kit, or plans in Adobe format, is a good choice to keep it in my archives...

I don't have any real plans drawn up. But if people are keen to build their own then one day I might draw some. It would be a very simple lost foam or EPP build.

Always happy to help out those who know PNF does not mean Plug 'N' Fly

Congratz on the maiden Jordan. Very nicely done especially for being away for a year. Perfect landing too. How hard was it blowing?

Thanks Jonathan. Wind would have been about 20mph. And it definitely wasn't scratching for lift So it should be lots of fun in the 10-15mph we usually get at that slope.
