Cool
video: CR Contender at Bluff Cove

My very good flying buddy Ian (Bluffman) flies my CR Contender for me so I can shoot some video.

Winds were light, but the lift was good and Ian did a great job of showing off how sweet my Contender is in the air.

Hey Brian thanks for the Contender video. Very sweet plane, one of my all time favorites. Charlie sure did a great job of that design didnt he.

Brian good vid. caught the dialog but as a point of fact the shredder pre-dates the contender by at least 3-4 yrs. mark grand had one at hughes hill for a csr race in the late '80s and charlie tested early contenders at torrey around '91. if anything the shredder was mark's answer to bridgeman's snipe. i remember when charlie first unveiled the contender at a gulls meeting and paul (naton) had the second or third one flying the 'no fear' plane - still bitchin' planes, among the very best TWs imo.

Ahhhh. Thanks for clearing that up. I am pretty familiar with a lot of classic slope history, but I didn't realize the Shredder predated the Contender. Now I'm sorry that I made that comment in the video.
