My NEW 60" JW


SLICK! this thing is awesome....

at a slim 45oz still needing 2 or so oz in the nose for ballance.. it came out heavier than i thought it would.. buti used a lot of tape...

the cleanest foamie i have ever built... the ultracoat is as tight as a drum!.... gear is 2 hs-645mg's (133oz!!!!!!!! of torque) a 5cell 2100battery, and electron 6... 4-40 all thread for the linkages... gooped fuse... yippie... i cant wait to rip it up with this beast...

Very nice. Isn't this the second JW in as many months?

I've always wondered whether the Coro fins on the JWs are draggier than balsa. Anyone tried both? I remember my M60 had a 3/32 or so balsa fin instead of Coroplast.

well my last JW was simply too heavy... something like 71oz, after it took out the pole at the weasel fest, it bent the ballast tube full of lead in one of the tips... so it was permenantly tweaked and i couldnt take the ballast out...

then i was in the 140's and dragged half the wing on a SHARP rock at vincent and broke the spars and a servo... it was fixable, but never gonna be a record setter...so i got another...

I'll second that! Hmmmm! What to buy next! Radar Gun I guess! I could always use a new JW 60, my Gulp DS is getting a little worse for wear. A new 1 piece carbon MB would be nice to add to the quiver!

JOe, nice JW by the way! Tear it up mister! I believe a new PB is in your future! "Luke, use the Force" or in your case the boundry layer! Lol!!!

the new jw looks great. If your looking for 163+, you better pinch the tail, could make the difference
