KKW, never end at a round number. I always use odd numbers like $51.61 or $56.77 etc and it's worked quite a few times.

I never bid in even dollars. Learnt that early on.

Rather than bidding like you all do just decide on what you would be happy to pay then in the last 10 or 20 seconds bid that amount. You will only pay one increment above the highest other bid and there isn't much time left for other bidders to try out their odd cented wastes of time.

Just dug out the original. 4" / 105mm from LE

I found the wing loading to be pretty high. Need a day with good lift. I have only flown mine at Manilla.

I have enough to build. And then some.

What do they fly like? Any reports? Why not a Scorpion from Zipper?

Looks like a Wild Wing copy. Scaled up slightly. Wild Wing was a cheap 1pc moulded EPP, 30-something inch span. I've flown one. It was pretty average on the slope. Not as good as a combat wing. I think they are geared towards electric power.
