That was fun Jono, it was frustrating all that wind but only 20 meter visibility. I sure wish I could here the banter on the video

Really gonna be fun to fly with you guys again

Hey Asto, I would jump in that spot but that would leave Roger with no where to stay. I and I reckon Roger would be keen as to grab a room each in any house you book. We will be looking at booking a forby or a wagon too so will have one seat free if someone wants to jump on that too.
Cheers

I have a light foam filled scorcher wing layed up. Just need to wait until some splooge/ glue arrives to join it up. Im still not sure if this will be a plank or light scorcher, I was planning to do one of each.

Cool Josh, so same wing a plank or tailed ship, is that the RK foil?

Why not use Lee’s trick of construction epoxy adhesive?

Hey Don, yeah its the RK40 foil. I did one a few years ago almost as a joke, guessed the cg and dialled in some reflex and it was just awesome! Probably the best front side plane Ive flown with no noticeable pitch change at that speed. I took it to NZ and got it up to 125 or so at Cass. After I came home I flew it faster and it started tucking and not feeling good, so I turned it back into a tailed plane. But I always thought maybe it was the crap servos I had in it not holding and causing the tucking, so I thought it'd be worth a try again.
As for the glue I think its similar to what Lee uses, Compset 121 paste. Mine ended up going off in the pots I had it for so long. It will last me a long time now.

I think ditch the plank and make two light scorchers. Scott's one absolutely rocked! And I'm tempted to make that gimp plank into a Lothian

Alex I was never happy with the Lothian, it had big pitch change issues with speed. The fix I found was to use a really forward cg but that came with its own issues.
I know you suggested running it with camber to get rid of the reflex, maybe that would be a good way. Scott has a lighter lothian wing, I don't know if he's done anything with it.
