As its name implies, the Wizrod is a combination of the best of two other models designed by the author several years ago, the Wizard and the Ramrod, Of the two models, the Ramrod was the
easiest to trim out and the most for- giving when mistakes were made, although both were exceptionally easy to fly compared to other designs available. So in making the combination, we started with the Ramrod configuration as a basis. The Wizard had such a long fuselage that it reminded one of a gangly teenage boy Because of this long fuselage, the Wizards tended to flex when in flight, the tail sometimes appearing to wobble from side to side as the fuselage twisted. Actually, this characteristic did not harm the flight pattern but probably did spook away a few potential Wizard builders. Another unwanted characteristic of the Wizard was its occasional tendency to tail slide. If you ever saw one come half way down from shut-off-tail first-before completing the stall, you'd remember it. But don't let us sell the Wizard short. Its great contest potential is perhaps best attested to by Lee Polansky's phenomenal Class A Open record of 94: 19! And this was done with the ½ A version with an 051 engine, breaking his own previous Class A record of some 70 minutes set with the same model.
