20 gr. of rubber, no more than 200 sq. in. Max flights start at 2min. then go 3,4 and fly offs stay at 4. It is a coupe size model but you get 20gr. of rubber, fun to fly. Idea is to have a model that might stay on the field, unlike unlimited. Don't know the best one,event is starting to get traction.

This is a fun event. Last year's Nats rubber one design was an Andrade, Bud Romak's "Betty's Baby". Essentially, a squared off GollyWock. I've used an Champion "Upshot" and the long motor version of the Blue Ridge "Coup 'd Ville". Most were using 12 strands of 1/8".

Mine is a version of a Upshot,same fuselage up on edge, single rudder, and same mains but tapered tips. 18" prop and like Norm 12 strands of 1\8". Flight times in the morning 4-4 1\2 min.
