Default What do you consider a fun fly plane

Hi there guys, I've got kind of a beginner question for you here. My club is having a Fun Fly contest the first weekend of April and their little newsletter says to "break out your Fun Fly plane for a day of fun". My question here is, what is considered a fun fly plane? I have a H9 Ultra Stick, a GP Ultimate Bipe .40, and a Skylark Sport by Stangel. Now, I pretty much fly them all just for fun, so I would consider them all my fun fly planes. What do you guys consider to be fun fly planes?

Hmmm, there are two definitions of "Fun-Fly"

When a club has a Fun Fly, it usually means any plane you want to bring out. Sometimes there are events like flying under a "Limbo" ribbon, or "Spot Landing" etc.

Then there are the airplanes known as "Fun-Fliers" usually a profile body, highly over powered and over controlled plane that will hover and do other 3-D type maneuvers.

The way you have it worded in your post, I'd check with the club as to which they are referring to

For a club fun fly you generally want something extremely light and aerobatic with an excess of HP. You also need something with a wide landing gear for those slalom type events on the ground. If you have one of the newer 3D planes then it will be great in the air, but if it has a long spindley landing gear, then you're doomed on the ground.

I don't generally participate in club fun flies because in the competitive spirit I'm too likely to trash a good airplane. It's more fun to watch everyone else trash theirs.

Sounds to me like they would like to see some of the average type planes like the trainers,Avistar and others under that catagoty.
No 1/4 or 1/2 scale planes.
Thats the way I see it anyway.
