The model in the photos is a nice stable flyer, but it weighs 3/4 of an ounce and is therefore quite a bit heavier than some of the Cougars and Laceys that are around. This one has done 25 seconds indoors. By using lighter wood, thinner sheet, and super- fine tissue, it could be built to less than 1/2 ounce with a potential for much
higher flight times. At the last Flightmasters indoor scale meet, it got whipped by a couple of Cougars and a lacey, but otherwise held its own. It is quite strong, and is an interesting new shape to model.
