Default RE: Top Flite Contender Kit Build

I have around 100 flights on my Contender I built earlier this year and love the plane. It has an old OS .61 4-stroke. Required no additional weight for balance.

I modified the rudder slightly and added the upswept wing tips. I do not have the adverse yaw that many guys report with this plane. It i a real joy to fly. This has been my go to plane since the maiden flight. I am interested to see what you might change after having another Contender.
Later!!
