I can't stand it anymore. I have to tell people how great Diversity Models new Park Flyer, The DragonFly, is.

It uses a direct drive S400 7.2V mounted on a carbon tube which is the fuselage. The tail is light sheet balsa, and the cabane (where everything  goes in) is laser-cut 1/16 ply with lots of lightening holes.

The wing  is wire cut 1 lb. foam totally uncovered with a 48" span with a thick  undercambered section.  It will fly in a light wind, but you can walk beside it. It will also  make an excellent primary trainer.

I built mine in less than two days.  Mine weighs 16 oz RTF.

Flying this thing is the most fun you can have  with other people watching.

If enough people bring them we could have mass Dragonfly pylon racing at  the MWE in Feb.
