It was flown in the Flying Aces Club's Goodyear Peanut mass launch event. The second has a 27" span and was built to fly in FAC Scale and the Modern Civilian event. Photos and flying footage with each model is shown, as they make the rounds on the sod fields of Wawayanda, NY. Film and photos by Tom Hallman, with additional launch photos by Pete Kaiteris.
