   THIS DESIGN is a state of the art F I A model which combines a proven circle-tow mechanism with a strong, lightweight structure reinforced with carbon-fiber and fiberglass materials. The result is a model which gives high performance and consistency. The Pacer is not intended as a beginner's model, but like all good contest designs, the model is simple to build.

   Construction. The Pacer 15 is not a good "first model" for a beginner, as it utilizes a number of unusual construction techniques. Rather than go through a step-by-step list of how the model is assembled, I will just point out the unusual aspects that you may find useful.

Thank you for looking
