A model design is generally considered to be successful when it proves itself on the contest circuit as this one has. More than that, this design recently received the distinguished honour of being named the NFFS small gas model of the year for 1988
The size of the model was selected based on the fact that most of my flying is at Taft under Cat. 1 conditions with 5-min. maxes. Smaller models can get pretty tough to see when they get specked out in a booming thermal. However, the model has been successfully flown in all categories and will typically weigh in at 6.5 to 7.0 oz. with no fuel. I feel that this size of model works well for all categories. It will handle the full power of a hot TeeDee with no wasted gyrations.
Thank you for looking
