Re: Johan's Whisper Express

Its now 5 years later and all I can say about my Whisper Express is: In my 1380 hours of flying I have not find a better dual purpose plane, cheep to run, and very safe to fly, with or without engine.

Re: Possible new Whisper model

Maybe not a bad idea, The sun is sometimes hot.
