Reflex got its first taste of Weldon today. After a brief trim flight last week in very light wind, it went 167 today. That's at 12 oz AUW! Wind peaked at 32 but was mostly 20-25 all day. Very, very well mannered plane.

This is excellent news Dominic. 167 mph is a good speed for its low AUW.

Thank you for the prompt flight report.

BTW Bruce flew it yesterday as well and had praise for it. There is video of his flight to 156 or so, which I'll post one I get back on wifi. The wind was on and off yesterday and he didn't get the gusts I did.

EDIT - here's the video

The little thing goes so fast that visibility is really key! I thought the single stripe would work well but I don't have a ton of Tweety experience, so we'll see if this works any better. I sure like the looks of it.

Bruce came up with the idea that all white with no stripes is the best for tweety visibility. It seems to work well having seen it first hand. Stripes break up the visibility too much on the tiny wings.
