"Zot!" No, it ain't no Shrike! 'Twere inspired by the same Model Aviation article on Russian R/C combat planes that Joe Beshar developed the "White Electrician" from. (Later morphed into the "Shrike")

Shoulder wing for easier construction, radio installation, hand launching and belly landings. Changed wing aspect/taper ratio, airfoils and V/stab area. Pressure fed Tee Dee .051 with bored venturi and Galbreath/Nelson head, 13 oz., 230 sq. in., sliding tray elevons coupled to elev. A real adrenaline pumper!
