Top Gun! Champion Dave Wigley & his Wyvern

Top Gun! Champion Dave Wigley & his Wyvern

For the third year in a row, Dave Wigley and his own-design Wyvern garnered the top spot and the coveted “Mr. Top Gun” title. Entered in Masters class, Dave received a high static score (97.232) and flew consistent 96/97 flights all weekend. He was in close competition with Expert class winner Jack Diaz and his F-86 for the top spot. Dave told us that he didn’t look at the flight scores because he just wanted to concentrate on delivering great flight performances, and his strategy paid off! Unfortunately, this is the last year for the Wyvern in Masters’ class, but Dave is hard at work on a Bristol Beaufighter that we look forward to seeing next year!

  1. Congrats Dave!!!

  2. Outstanding modeling was on display at this year’s Top Gun. The models were all so close, chosing a winner must have been very difficult. Congratulations, and thanks for the show guys.

  5. Dave, great job. Can’t wait to see your new offering in the future Top Guns, caught a close up look at the last scale seminar you and Roy gave. Don’t forget… How to loft formers at the next seminar. 🙂

    Best Regards,

    Truly a very gifted modeler. Very lucky to be part of the L.I. Skyhawks gang.
