A new approach to a classic design

Despite its occasional frustrations, I love pattern flying–but there are times I’ve wished for something simple and yet impressive in its presentation and performance. Larger models have an impressive smoothness and grace, but I wanted something completely aerobatic and yet very simple to construct and maintain.

Local hobby shop owner James Cummings and I decided that by enlarging a good basic pattern design and taking advantage of the improved Reynolds Numbers, we could have spectacular performance without the complexities of retracts, pipes, etc. Since 1970 Joe Bridi’s Kaos design has maintained a reputation as the most docile and simple airplane available with competitive aerobatic capability. I can wholeheartedly agree with Dave Brown’s recent endorsement of it as an ideal first low-winger.
