RE: New Snaker
Scott, to be honest, I haven't raced it enough to know. The first one I built midaired on its 2nd flight and had a horribly warped wing. The 2nd one that I finished above I have only flown 2 times and have never used it in a race. I know it flies good and appears to have no bad habits, but I haven't had it under the gun or anything.
what I do know, in 424 and 426. Most of the modern designs, if built properly can be competitive. The advantages of the composite planes is greatly diminished when you get on the short course and start turning alot. If / when I have more data I will let you know.
