I'll list my favorite airframes in order of my preference.
Primo - I like the more locked in feel and predictability over shorter coupled airframes like the Mojo.
*I think this is the one to judge all others by
Ian's Madcap and MadEdge 50 size but un-obtanium
Doug G's UL series. they all fly great.

The best thing you can do is get to a ProBro and try a bunch of birds out and decide for yourself which ones you like..
Bro's are very willing to let other Bro's try their birds. You can get info on why this or that birds flys the way it does / setups ect. Sometimes you can talk to the designers themselves and get a wealth of information.

There, I simplified it for ya!
You can learn more at a ProBro in two days than you can in 10 years of doing it yourself.

Guess you are unfamiliar with Montana. Here's my truck outside temp reading Friday afternoon. It's very accurate.

A bit cooler today, thankfully.

Sparkplug, you will have a blast at Nash (Now being held in Evansville IN this year). I'm sure you are following the "NashBro 2020" thread. I've only been to NashBro 3 times, but every time was incredible. There's so much to see, so much amazing flying going on and so many Bro's to meet, sometimes it is difficult to take it all in, but so well worth it.
** WARNING ** WARNING ** If you go there you will probably see c/f and his grandson flying their Twisted Hobbies Revolto, at which point you will have to order one instantly which could be hard on the wallet.. :cash: :cash: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Now that I think about it, I've been to Evansville - back in 1993 or 94. Flew in. Got a 24 foot Ryder truck and picked up about 200k worth of furniture out of Karges - before they were bought out and moved. Made it back to Montana in less than 2 days - over 1600 miles - one stop for some shut-eye not counting fuel-ups and roadfood.

The best plane is a previously wrecked plane,. Immediately helium Injected with a force field .

If it's a cheap or free plane it makes you look like Dussia.

Unless your wild Fred then you look like your flying some wallboard
Hi my name is DorkitDan, may I fly your plane please ;)

Yes, it's usually somewhat dry. Unless we have a heat induced thunderstorm the late evening before. Then it's pretty hot and muggy.

Oh, we get those wonderful artic breezes - usually at 20 to 30 miles an hour in the middle of the winter where they drop the chill factor, oh wait ... drop the Real Feel (it's now called) to 30 or 40 below on the F scale. :lol:. Pretty rare the cool breeze in Summer. It does blow, but think convection oven.

Montana is pretty big, however. And the climate and weather can vary quite a bit depending where one is located. My statements above are for where I'm at. High mountain areas are reasonably pleasant this time of year and the night time cools off nicely.

I don't remember anyone ever hand cutting a 65. Fun build though. I've build 5 over the years, still flying my original from the first kit run.
