I liked David's 55 special so much I had to build a foamie of it........sorta.... Started on her Monday morning....little or no dihedral, thinner airfoil (DF-101), no landing gear. Maidened her today in gusty winds......she's a handful......no video, my cinematographer said it was too hot....soon though !

Some blue fan fold, some aluminum duct tape, a bit of lite ply, some foam board, a couple of servos (well three 'cause my transmitter won't mix), and a big motor (.10 1250 kV) and prop (10x7P)...24 oz AUW... Flew one a couple of weeks ago and they're a hoot....

It does have three pieces of balsa.......the spars.....instead of a pizza box wing, it's a shallow symmetrical airfoil...
