Drives on the ground real good
with just rudders.

Wings/Sides fold down and then lock.
See the website INSTRUCTIONS page
on how that all works.

It loves to fly real slow like this.

This took 14 prototypes and was first started late 2005. Its very simple to build and fly and is one of my personal favourites. Everyone loves it when you take it out.

I can't count how many times all over the web I've read:

"My wife loved this and now wants to try RC"

Enough said!
