Default Anyone remember this plane?

Hi All,

I remember watching VHS videos of my dads from model shows in the 1990's when I was a kid and there was always a plane I wanted but never got and I can't remember the name of it. I think it did a display at TOP GUN 1991. It was .30-.40 size in all black in Zap glue scheme I think and it was mental and spun sooooooo fast. I think he launched it by swinging it from the wingtip. It was kind of similar to a President FunFly model I think.

Anyone know the model I mean?

Cheers,
Alan

It sounds like something from the St. Cloud or Kissimmee, FL "Cloud Dancers". Perhaps, Don Muddiman's Flying Machine?

Actually that's the one I was seeing in my head, a great flying little beastie if I recall.

Condor is coming out with a Don Muddiman designed ARF Flying Machine. It should be out in the market very shortly.
