STICTION "PSP" wooden VTPR Fun!
. . . . . . . .
The STICTION 1.7m "PSP" is the second in my line of this size of wooden VTPR model. Im very happy with its performance and durability. Weighing in at 25 ounces she has a 7.3 ounce wing loading on a SB96V/VS airfoil. We are finding the more we fly them they are great fun with no worries of breakage. This is good news for a woody now days and the stigma of crunchy fragility is pretty much gone! Larger than normal flight surfaces and its low mass construction are nice attributes allowing the pilot to fly worry free performing close to the ground aerobatics or fun fly with all kinds of control to the extreme. Like the prototype ZEPPELIN these arent fast flyers but are highly maneuverable and inexpensive to construct. Give a woody PSP a try, you'll like it...
