Miss Ashley II is designed as a test bed for many of the technologies developed by Windy over recent years. It is the first all-carbon fiber fuselage model of its type to use 100% carbon fiber and a post-cured resin system. This beautiful ship features full take-apart construction, including removable control surfaces, tail, and bottom shell—even the cockpit details are removable! The new forked-end bellcrank, Windy's custom designed and manufactured tuned pipe, and how to set up a Jett .60 are all covered in intimate detail, something not possible on condensed “edited” videos.

The Miss Ashley II set is the most detailed video set we’ve ever produced, with information and tips that can help every skill level of modeller in every event.
