BAMF 2 from ArmSoar

Details

From the experience flying the BAMF for the past several years and taking a look at the events on the world stage... it seems that higher heights and higher penetration are always required to keep pushing forward. It seems that competition is biasing towards planes that penetrate very strongly with less disturbance from turbulence.

Aerodynamically, the wing shape was modified to be less affected by turbulence while the lift is slightly increased closer to the root. All cross-sections on the fuselage are decreased and the pushrod exits are further refined for a tighter install. In terms of flying philosophy, we feel there are two ways to tackle high winds: fly extremely fast with a lower L/D so you can reach somewhere faster, so even though L/D is lower you will reach the target area quicker and less affected by the outside forces (wind & turbulence), or secondly slightly slower than extreme but retain very high L/D so even though it may take you a few seconds to get back you should get back with a little extra height.

Personally I am not an extremely aggressive pilot with 40 hours of stick time per week, so I have always preferred the second method of tackling wind. As such, the Vibe was designed that way and if you've flown it, you will know it's not the fastest out there but comes back home with height to spare. Think of the BAMF 2 as taking what the Vibe had but further increasing the L/D and with a very strong launch height ability.
