Default RE: blohm and voss bv 215

Two weeks of bad weather came to an end and I got the first flights in. The wing tips flutter really badly at a moderate speed so it was only flown sedately. Peter Agnus (scale builder of repute)was at the field and gave some good advice on how to stop the flutter. The plane is an ongoing flying test bed. I will make a proper wing section with reflex, using 16th balsa over depron ribs on top of the existing wing.
The bv215 was flown by john smith as I took the vid-i should have done better. i will take a better vid next time.I should have sprayed it after all!!
All in all im really pleased with the result .
