Default Diamond Dust and FIRE 50Lx

Which Diamond Dust is best suited for the FIRE.50Lx ; The original (575 sq in) or the Clipped wing version (480 sq in) ? Most Jett's HOF pictures show original version but I think there is also some CW as well.

Thanks

JPL

Thanks for writing......

Only one I have personally flown is the original configuration. I know that flys great. Clip wing looks interesting, but I am not sure it will be a whole bunch quicker.

If I had a choice, I would go with the full-wing version. No need to trade away stability and wing loading for something flying 150 mph

I built my first D.D. a few months ago. It is the C.W. version. Flies great lands like a baby.
