Further Description/Back Story

When I saw Josh’s ‘FT Bloody Wonder’ YouTube video, I knew I had to build it! A whole simple, easy to build design, using only artboard: paper-sided over a styrene-foam core…fitted with cheap radio and power gear, yet with astonishingly high performance! I deviated from the planes in the video only in doing an elaborate multicolored finish, with assorted low-temp films. All-up weight is only 1 1/2 pounds for LOW wing loading and BRISK performance! When my thumbs catch up to that performance, maybe I’ll take it into Combat!
