I did a Scamp conversion in 1989. You can read about it here:

A whole lot lighter.

It was a good flying three channel plane, easy to build and a decent trainer.

Just flew mine last week. Still a slimer with an FP .15. 1989 was still NiCd, Same motor with LiPo would be good.

They were all good planes. I'd love to do a Scamp again. The Colt and Klipper were nice as well. I have a Super Sport waiting in the back round with a new wing.

They used to have pylon races with them back in the day when you could still buy them. One design club racing, I picked it up from one of the club members that didn't use it any more. Since then they went to a coroplast delta design, and that fizzled out too. Oh, I got one of them as well. It may be a bit more durable than the newer foamies, and flies well. Can't do outside loops on mine.
