Remember this butte? Well... We wont see her again. I folded fuselage. Long story... Sins I gained some flying experience and I'm dealing well with regular handling (straight flight + coordinated, tight and flat circling left and right direction + loop), I decided to tray more aggressive maneuvers (inverted handling like above + full straight roll + inverted loop). During recovery from inverted flying due to pilot error she was crashed. Wing in good condition! Probably I'll put 4 sale in FS/W section. Too bad

It is realy hard to get "dead air" on Key West!
This pic r from maiden flayight. Plane on previus pictures can hang +/- 2 min. Condytions r usualy hevy (+ 15-20 mph wind) so I tend to build hevier. This one tips scale at 240g witch gives ladig ~6zo/^2' . Even so it flays nicely. (sorry for speling im guesing a loot ).
I think it's one of "Lunch Monster " type!
More Pic!!!

Maybe your hands are stronger , looks very high.
I used Blaster 2 plans, but reduced 2/3. I don't think that here airfoil has very much sense, I made flat bottom of wing something like Clark Y. Much more sense has thickness (It's my opinion or phylosophy ) Only ailerons is little down. Some photos here but it was not finished yet:

I wood highly recommend Mark Drela airfoils! Yours hanging time will double easy!
Q: No carbon in wing???
Q: Watt boom made of???
Lunch height (i think) is greatly affected by model weight and rigidly. My is heavy and rigid - ergo better retains and transfer kinetic energy.
Any big head can contradict that??

My wing is fully woden, but balsa is not soft, so my wing is also rigid. Boom i have got from my friend, and he got it from F1B model kit maden in Ukraine. It weight is 10 g, and made from fiberglass (no carbon used), but technology is something unknown for me, but realy something interesting. So anyway i like it on my 1 m DLG.
