Default RE: Tower Hobbies Uproar 40 build

I just couldn't spell Expendable. When I moved here three years ago I gave away that yellow UR, Never mentioned how old or how many miles it had on it. I had picked up an old Midwest Hots 60 size kit at an auction just before I moved. I built it for wind flying, we get some really heavy winds here in the desert and it looked like the perfect plane. I have a YS 1.10 in it so it is really stupid!! Same wing as the UR but quite a bit more weight, still fly's about the same though. Turned out it isn't all that great for wind flying, I like my Kaos a lot better but the Hots will fly backwards and I can hit a switch and have flaperons slaved to the elevator for some true fun flying. It's a surprise to me why I don't see more of these fun fly planes in the air anymore?
