On Saturday, May 29 at the Indoor Nats there will be a Pro-Am event for Limited Pennyplane. Each inexperienced ("Amateur") flier entered will be paired with an experienced ("Pro") flier for the event. The Amateur will compete with a model built and donated by his or her Pro partner. The Pro will help the Amateur trim and fly the model in the competition.

On Sunday the Amateurs will have a Sportsman LPP event where they can compete among them selves with their donated LPP.

Anyone who would like to see one of the world's premier Indoor Freeflight events and actually enter and compete please consider making the trip to Johnson City, TN. I'm entered in this event and the lucky (?) amateur who gets paired with me will receive the Limited Pennyplane pictured below.

great stuff Bill.. I have started a Pennyplane myself. Wing and elevator are made, wing is covered, and all the other parts cut. I need to ask your PRO advice.. hehehe. Prop hanagrs, what do you use? wire? and How on earth do you cover the wing tips without getting those saggy pockets in them at the dihedral joint?

regards

I use Harlan PP bearings. A lot of people use wire bearings.

See the F1D build for info on removing slack at the dihedral joints.
