Estrellita
« on: January 30, 2015, 12:18:10 PM »
A new EF-1 has made its debute (scratch built). Its called the "Estrellita" and it is beautiful!! The orange one set fast time for the day, and the white one, won the event! (Arizona races year round)
Rumour has it, that the Estrellita could become an ARF.
 
I know i want one!!
 
Cheers Fellas!!

Apparently the elliptical wing shape is the most efficient wing. 


Love it - sign me up for an ARF, though!  ;D

Spitfire----case and point.
I thought this design wasn't allowed for ease of building as this event was intended to get new racers building and Racing. but seeing that most designs are going the ARF route, then maybe the eleiptical wing is allowed now... If this is the case, Mr. Fluney and I have some work to do on another old beautiful F1 design..... the Stinger!!... you never know, eh Ken?

Estrellita's are pretty much my favourite thing at taco bell...


And those planes look nice. I want one...
