Default RE: Nimbus 4D

Hi

I have a Nimbus 4D, the 4 meter version fully molded.

It is a exelent flying airplane thermals realy well but is a handhull to fly. Not for the iexperienced pilot. He loves speed and with a little efort he can also fly really slow.

The down side is the very small wingcord which makes the airplane hard to c on the sky. If I would buy another one I would go for the 7 or 8 meter version.

Never than less this aiplane is a beauty.
