Miss America


Description: Build a piece of American heritage

Developed by Dave Robelen, this Miss America replica was developed for an indoor “climb and glide” event to be held at the NIRAC 2004 Championships. In outdoor tests, it has proven to be a superb park flyer that requires little effort to control and gives long, rewarding flights while using little power. A full-court gym would be an adequate indoor flying area, and outside, a baseball infield would suffice. Its stick and tissue structure makes this model different from many modern models, but it is easily mastered and gives very rewarding results. It could be covered with RA Microlite with no weight penalty.
