Baby Bee 40
A beginners gas powered event event using the Cox Baby Bee .049, kind of a big brother to the Pee Wee 30 event, only using the readily available Cox Baby Bee .049. This event is in it's infancy and the rules are evolving mainly here online in this discussion area by those interested, please feel free to contribute your ideas, hopefully we'll end up with a great gas powered beginners event!
The Famous Whammy Series of Science Olympiad Planes
This series of indoor rubber powered airplanes designed by Chuck Markos represent a good choice for a beginner who is is getting started with indoor rubber powered duration models. The series starts with the Double Whammy for beginners, and progresses to the Double Whammy - PennyPlane for the AMA indoor competition class called PennyPlane. Finally, the Triple Whammy is a design adapted from the original Double Whammy by Bucky Servaites specifically for the Science Olympiad "Wright Stuff" event.
Have fun in building and flying each of these fine models!
