Best Planes for the "Skills Challenge"
« on: June 29, 2012, 07:51:35 AM »
I was thinking what would be the best plane / Planes for the skills challenge?

My top would be a trainer type foam...  Maybe the T-28 from PZ.   

Anyone?

Last year I thought the Formosa and Stryker did well in some challenges, but they have no landing gear.....

I was thinking maybe the mini mag or the fun cub would be a good one....   I keep looking at the fun cub...it looks like it could do the job? :P

The mini ultra stick did great. I think anything that is a sport model with a very slow landing speed would be perfect.
Takeoffs are optional. Landings are mandatory.

Is it required to use one plane for all events?
Yea 400W/lb should about do it.. But wouldn't a nice round 500 be better?

No, just one pilot!  ;D

You can pick multiple planes for the different events.
