The basic design of th is SAAB was done by Bjorn Andreasson in 1958. SAAB pursued what they call the MFI series through the M FI·15 when, according to the SAAB Handbook, in the 1968 time period, they built some Tail draggers which differed from the current MFI-17 only in the landing gear configuration. The MF-17, with its tricycle gear, is better known, but the excellent flight characteristics of the Tail dragger remain a matter of record, and it was shown as late as the summer of 1974. The design of this SAAB is both simple and interesting. The absence of multiple struts and wires and the constant chord wing are a blessing in any factory or modeler's workshop. The spacious cockpit/canopy gives excellent visibility, and virtually forces the builder to a molded canopy, while the negative sweep on the wings is seldom seen. From a Peanut builder's view, the SAAB looks attractive, with lots of fuselage and room for a fairly big prop, even on ROG.
