This is a fantastic design! Simple and cheap to build, looking great and a very good flyer.

Having just gotten back from NEAT and having met Terry, I'm mulling purpose built planes for various events for next year. Lobster combat (chasing a fast streamer towing plane), night time slow fly balloon pop contest, night bowling and mass warbird launch are primary targets.

Twin tractor, 3s max, 24 ounce max, optimal would have removable landing gear since some events you can take back off if you land upright from the scrum.

Can laminate for assassin class durability if needed, distantly possible to fpv it.

I don't know you by your RCG handle. What's your outside handle (i.e. name)?

I think the FnL would be great for lobster combat and maybe balloon pop. Maybe a single pusher config for bowling. I assume that tractor planes break a lot of props when bowling. Do you think Tom would let an FnL into the Warbird gig?

Jason. Team RA Cores. Squid hat at the demo gaggle.

He probably would allow it if painted as a lightning, especially if it was twin tractor. Easy to check.

Youre right about bowling, props would die. And NEAT bowling is much slower and safer than SEFF bowling

I asked Tom, once I explained it was a fun scale P38 he said keep it to 32oz and 3s and I'm good.

Got the plans for this and looking forward to building. A while back there was discussion regarding kits. Did that ever come to be? If so I'd like to get some.
