The construction method scales well. It also adapts to design changes with relative ease. The 1 meter is quite fast but really smooth.

Hi there from Toledo

I love FFF planes, I have some green FFF and white fff, it will look great. However, does it really need the bungee launch? Some of our club members grumble about "overgrown sling shots" and the room they take up.

Ray,
Launch by hand with ease. Two fingers on right and left of fin and thumb under trailing edge, nose up about 30 degrees, full power and moderate toss. The bungee was for first trim flights. The blended wings are quite sensitive to CG and the speed the bungee gives can a margin of safety on initial flights.

This fff was the old double skin type. Have used single skin blue and pink single skin fff without noticeable differences. Also used coroplast 2 mm for a slope ship of same size, but it is 2+ lbs. heavier.
