JW EPP

This is a new EPP (fast!) foamy designed by Joe Wurts who is better known as the father of dynamic soaring. Joe modified the Eppler E184 profile and tailor-made a new profile which is particularly suitable for outraging dynamic soaring. The designer took a straight leading edge wing with fuselage and a vertical fin for overall design compromise for stability, speed and handling. On light to moderate winds, this foamy offers no exception difference with other foamies - but watch out under strong wind (>15mph) condition! The speed it can attain on DS is amazing, it is as fast as other top-performance composite ships! Of course, with the strong EPP in construction, it means crash-proved!
Wing Span: 48"
