Though small looking, this ship has toads of wing area making for ease of flying through the pattern. Few modelers have designed fine bipes .
The "Jolly Roger." This ship is the result of compromises in appearance and performance. Half the fun of a bipe is its appearance. We were after a snappy looking model that would still allow for a working combination of wing areas properly placed so as to give us good stunt performance. This ship is smooth through all the round maneuvers such as loops and eights. On 52' lines it turns just tight enough to perform vertical eights. Why the gull top wing? Appearance! Because the gull section covers only a small part of the overall wing area we did not feel that it would be overly detrimental to flight performance.
The original weighed in at 23 ounces and was powered by a Torp .19 swinging a 9-6 Power prop. This gave us a smooth flying model that is a little faster than you would expect. If your version ends up with approximately the same weight and C.G. location, and is kept fairly well lined up all the way around, you should get the performance described earlier.
