Material: GFEC 3.2 (or 2.5 ?) mm

Distance: 100-120m

[1998] This design (July 98) is a combination of the MegaQuirl and the Straight Shooter. I built it in 3.2 mm GFEC with rather conventional LD-airfoiling (for details download the plan). The boom needs negative angle of attack and positive dihedral on the dingle wing, otherwise it will just fly way out on a large circle and won't rise. The distance is not extraordinary, but you can experiment with the new generation airfoil of the Buzz Whip. I filled a 14 mm hole on the leading arm with lead, so the boom has a weight of 75 to 80 g. It must be thrown with 60 ° layover and upward because it tends to "dive" on its way out. Use full rotation for maximum stability and full power to prevent crashing on the way back.

We suggest trying 2.5 mm GFEC as well (which we didn't try yet). Performance might be improved due to a reduction of drag. A problem might be the insufficient stiffness and tendency to getting warped if you use thin GFEC, especially if the quality is inferior.
