Sport Flyers Wasp ARF Park Flyer
Sport Flyers Wasp ARF Park Flyer 43" Span
The Wasp is designed for the Park Flyer Pilot. This durable little plane is affordable,
easy to assemble, lightweight, and fun to fly. Best of all, you can set it up to match
your flying skills and interests. The wing can built with dihedral or flat, and can have
ailerons for banking, or just rudder. It's durable, too. The fuselage boom is carbon fiber
and the framework is all light-plywood. The wing and tail are lightweight foam that can
take abuse, and are easily repaired after one of those unexpected meetings with terra-firma.
The Wasp is what fun park flying is all about - affordable, low-effort planes that are
durable and fun. It's unique, it's customizable - it's the Wasp.
Carbon fuselage boom with laser-cut, factory-assembled wood framework

And the build starts
Ok I got my kit on friday and I started it yesterday! WOW this kit goes together quick and its so straight forward. the plane can be built with or without Ailerons. Im going to build the no Aileron version first I might order another kit for spare parts as Hobby people have them for sale for about $25.00 right now. (GWS SLOWSTICK OWNERS MIGHT BY ONE JUST TO SEE IF THE WING COULD BE USED ON THERE PLANE) here are the pictures so far.

Tallflyer ++ got a couple questions..
1 what is the fuse dimensions ?? i.e. SS is 10 mm.
2 can u compare it against the SS ??
seems to me that it much much more work to put together than the SS, and maybe
the only advantage over the SS would be the wings, for easier flying in wind, but
than not as slow as the SS ??

The wasp is not going to be a slow flyer like SLOWSTICK! But since it has a solid wing will be better in the wind! Only time will tell about how easy she is to fly!
Im going to mount my 5 in 1 camera on her for her madian so you can see video from the plane (I love doing this as I can see whats gong on after Im done flying also so stay tunned!

actually, people say it does fly like a slowstick, but less twitchy and handles the wind a little better, and with 378 sq inches of wing on a 16 ounce plane, i would say its definitely in the slowflyer category... here is another thread on it.... http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...t=584140&pp=30

Since you have beat me getting it into the air tell us what power system prop combination you think works best.
If anyone else has experience please tune in.
