The Li'l Snip was designed for Western Associated Modelers (W.A.M.) 1/2A Combat. The aircraft was developed with several things in mind; durability, good flying characteristics, ease of building, and limited expense. Combat has always had the reputation of being an expensive event. The Li'l Snip minimizes the expense, maximizing the flying time and pleasure.
We were prompted to design the Li’l Snip because of the fact that there are no serious 112A combat aircraft on the market . . . that is, aircraft designed a‑round the powerful Cox Tee Dee .049 engine. The 1/2A combat aircraft on the market are designed for use with Baby Bee or Golden Bee engines. In WA.M. competition, these do not stand or Kirm ‑Kraft Tee Dee .049's are the hot tip in W.A.M.
The Li'l Snip's stability makes it a suitable aircraft for both the beginner and expert flyer. ‘Half‑A combat is the way for U‑Control flyers to break into combat flying. Snip's are inexpensive to build and fly, as fuel consumption for the .049's is minimal. Cox Tee Dee .049's can be obtained from any hobby shop
