The Arrow by Laddie Mikulasko is a simplified version of the North Star.
Capable of flying off water and land, it has a great speed range. The Arrow can burn up the sky while performing high speed passes, but it can also be slowed down to almost a crawl during landing.
Any glow engine from .35 to .60 can be used to power this model. Or how cool would a conversion to EDF look!
