Finally, we flew a latest plane - Primus III.

In one of test fly (engine stop in air)  I set new personal glide record: distance 976 meters from 68 meters altitude.

I've been following your build but I wasn't sure if it was the same plane or not. 30kg tow! What are you towing?

Great to see it complete Vlad, are the flight tests going well, does it perform as you hoped?

Yep, flew great. So more, we have problems with landing - need a really BIG glide distance.
