The Legendary JW60 is coming! and now it's all moulded!

We are humbled to announce that Bill and Jason of L2 Airframes are working with us here at SlopeRacer to bring their awesome new full moulded JW60 to Europe. It promises to be everything that everyone has learnt to expect from a JW - great aerobatic handling, comfortable in a huge range of conditions, rock-solid in DS and as quick as you would expect from the world record holding DS foamie! But if you thought that a foam J-Dub was good, then check out the extra fire-power that you get with the moulded version:

  • Radically slimmed down fuselage
  • Joe Wurts has taken away all the compromises in the airfoil and wing planform that were introduced due to the limitations of foamie construction and manufacturing methods - this is the full flavour JW!
  • The wing is fully filleted into the fuse to further reduce drag
  • Top driven bottom hinged wing surfaces to keep almost all of the linkage internal, again for minimum drag.
  • Super-simple construction - you're looking at 3-4 hours of build time with this model.
It will be available in two versions - a frontside and light DS version at around 1450g (50oz), and a ballistic frontside and heavy DS version at 2100g (75oz).

Watch this space for more information about availability - please get in touch to register your interest as the list is already growing!
