Just looked it up and Ray Randall won with the tigercat in 60 and his wife won in 59 with it.

If you are interested in getting more control with added handle deflection, search for the threads on exponential handles.  Here is a drawing of my latest version.

I've bought several Enya 15 III and IV venturiis from Bobby Brooks off his Ebay store.

As you can see in the listing, he has 3 diameter venturiis. I'm using the 6MM and it works very well for stunt flying.

Bfrog , thanks for the encouragement . Have a couple of planes (for fun and maybe stunt ) that need completing then on to carrier. Will most likely drive people nuts with questions on guardian.  ken.

This is the only piece of sand paper and block that I used on the ARGO II.

I made the sanding block with soft balsa. The paper is 320.

Jamie, I built a Jr Flite streak with an os 10 and it flies very well on 48' .012 lines using 7x4 and 7x5 apc props.
  If you get the chance come over here and I'll let you fly it..
Sounds good!

I am sorry but respectfully, I am curious as to how you came to this conclusion?
the biggest problem I see is that many people fly them to small and the airplane looses energy more than them being to large?
I didn't come by the conclusion.  I just read Wild Bill's  101 Stunt Planes.  Some planes pull better in level flight and lose more line tension in the overhead eights.  Yes WB simplifies some calculations, but they are quicker and more reliable than cut and try.

A lot of flyers, especially in Advanced, seem to like how the Pathfinder flys.  It's a relatively easy build, doesn't pull hard in level flight(<10lb) and keeps 1/3 of it's line tension in an OH eight-3.2/9.45.  It's easier to fly because the pilot doesn't have to contend with widely varying line tension. Compare that to the Chizler- pretty light level flight line tension, 6.6 lb and it drops to 20% in the OH eights.  Both planes can fly very well, but the Chizler requires a much defter touch especially if it's a bit breezy.

First rule: A modeler can never have too many tools...Clamps of all kinds are essential, even those made from clothes pins.  Coffee

      Hello #liner
                             I agree with Ty you can never have too many tools if you want things to be just right. a Dremel jig saw, moto tool grinder and a disc/belt sander are invaluable for building baslawood models. Also making all kinds of sanding form as the need arises makes for a better looking and flying model. One that I found  that has made my airplanes fly better is a leading edge sanding form,it makes for a leading edge that has the same shape top and bottom. If you try to sand a leading edge by hand you better have a keen eye to do it with the same curvature on both sides.  Scratchbuilding is a lot of fun. Good luck with your tools.
