    Guppy Maiden

    After-work flight, (unplanned) unexpectedly calm weather ... just a little gusty ...
    But enough for 15 Oz ... It needs a 4s battery for a bit more weight.

    This was my first flight since Nov. last year. And first of this year ...
    Bad omen, I crashed into the ****** ::::
    YeSsss, it's free to guess into what ... Just one per person plz..

    Video Later prob. to day.

    Oh no CeeKay, just a scratch ... there was no time for repair so I flew on for about 7 minutes without any major problems. ;)

    Do I need the KF4'S on this? I've never fitted them to anything before and most of the photos I see don't have them fitted. It can be windy at my field so I thought that the top kf's at least?

    I have only KF2, so far. Good lift, but a little sensitive in the wind. Will probably add on KF4 later.

    I have kf4 on mine for the same reason - lots of wind at my field. It does help with stability!

    My guess is the power line. Your planes seem to gravitate that way.:D

    Fyi, ALLLL, there's a thread here in the forum, that, Dave Powers himself, I believe, posted for us all, regarding just that....all different kinds of KF foils and there pros and cons and purposes etc. I thought, personally, that it was a very helpful posting. Thanks Dave:):) and I'm sure you all can find tons of YouTube vids. On these things too. Just adding my two cents. Hope it helps u all as much as possible. Cheers, JB.;)

    I have been wondering the same thing CeeKay.
    I'm gonna fly with the KFM2's for a bit then maybe tape on the KF4s to check the difference, that way if I don't like how it flys I will just slip the KF4s off,.. Maybe
