D-60 Maiden Flight

1.7 kg for 1.52m wingspan. This is unusual, but this is the flying weight of my D60. Yesterday, I maidened the D60 with 20 to 30 km/h of wind at my home slope. After the launch, I have been first surprised by the lift of the plane despite its high wingload. Then the cruise speed is already quite important. This is a good frontside sailplane for heavy conditions. But its home is back side :)

After few laps backside (or darkside ;) ), I had just one word to summarize the D60: woowwww !


Here is a short video of the first flights:
