Default RE: Tower Hobbies Uproar 40 build

All the fun fly planes were designed to be built fast. When the fun fly events were a big thing in this country and there were contests every weekend you expected to loose at least one plane during one of the events so we always had a couple of planes with us. There designs are for quick and easy builds, the thinking was you should be able to start a build at 8AM and be flying it the next morning. The born to die thinking. I still love the Up-Roars but I built one of the Mid West Hots some years back and it's still with me. If you don't compete with these planes then they too can last forever. Fun fly planes are a pretty good first build for people wanting to fly something besides an ARF.
