And what is or defines a sport flyer from say anyother types
My interpretation: Park Flyers are usually small, light wt.;foamies, that can be flown safely in a more restricted location / such as a park. Being small etc. they do not safely fly at long range therefore, the park flyer restricted range RX's. Sport flyers generally refers to aircraft built up of lite ply/balsa and may be powered by electric or glow fuel. Far larger, faster and heavier than a park flyer therefore require much more space for safe operation. They are similar in construction to the more advanced pattern type and giant scale but without the more advanced necessitys of those type. Can be used as trainers, in some cases or overall fun fly aircraft. Many have reasonable aerobatic capabilities.
