Matin's BD-5 flew incredibly well, hands off on launch, straight as an arrow and it rolls faster than any plane I've seen, it was literally a blur.

Beautiful job Matin.

I like that BD5. Sorry about your Tucano. Looks like you guys had a great day.

Thanks Ken.
The Tucano had a weakened wing from a hard landing a few months ago.
The left wing had a crack propagating from the root of the aileron and was bound to fail sooner or later.
Nick's arrival Friday was unnecessarily "vertical" (!) ..... but that wing could have torn off even on a soft landing.
I'm glad Stehl and I could fly it at the six Pack and do pumps with that yellow thing of yours!

BTW somebody asked me how much my BD-5s weighed.
I confirmed tonight that they are both 45 oz.
Which is remarkable because I'm not knowm to be a light builder ..... and all the more so since they both have removable wings and tail feathers.
