What We Learned
A 10-minute max time does not easily allow this to be an event loaded with fly-off potential.
These little models have real charisma and can offer real performance.
Because they are limited to a 36" wing span, you do not want to get them in a killer thermal. The chance for losing such a small model is a real possibility.
Everyone who entered had fun and vowed to come back with a new model next time.
