Which 60" EPP Racer?


I know this must have been asked many times before, but what are some good 60" EPP Racers? I like wings, but is there a good (strong) conventional plane out there?

I've seen LEG's 60" One D, but was wondering if there are others out there.

Thanks!

Here at CaliforniaSailplanes (.com) we carry both the Redback from Australia and the Banshee from here in the US.

The Redback is a good all-round plane and has had some good success in 60" and the Banshee is more a high performace only plane.

We have videos of both on our site.

I fly both, but my Banshee is extra heavy so I only use it for high wind or DS days. Several local fliers have thought my Redback was a moldie in the air.

The Australian S-15 looks good www.wowings.com and the new PMP Rampage has been doing OK here in the UK. www.phoenixmp.com .

Here's a link to a recent thread with tons of info and not a little biased opinion and mutual slagging off. All in good humour of course!
