I have recently purchased, assembled, and flown the new "Miss Chief" bipe, available from Hobby-Lobby and New Creations.

It's a well-built ARF that was easy to put together, and flies very nicely on a 6V Speed 400, 8x800 AR or 8X1400 AE cells, Graupner 2.3:1 gearbox, and APC 9x4.7 slow-fly prop. It's bigger than most park flyers, but flies as slowly as my friend's Albatros park flyer. Flight times are averaging about 10 -12 minutes depending on the pack used. The plane cruises nicely at half throttle. It will ROG and land on pavement, or perhaps very well manicured turf.

The only improvement that I plan to make to this plane is to beef up the landing gear - it's too flimsy and bouncy as supplied. Otherwise, I think this is a great plane for relaxed flying.
