This is Charlie Strange's Sky Rider. Charlie built it from Flying Models plans. This is an unusual design that turned out to be a very groovy flying model. I felt comfortable enough flying it to start in with aerobatics immediately. The Sky Rider performed all maneuvers with ease, proving itself to be a quite capable aerobat.

The Saito 50 provided more than ample power for this lightly loaded airplane. Take offs and landings were equally easy without the slightest hint of tip stall at any time during landing. I even managed one tail wheel first landing. Art was the lucky fellow to be first in line for this beauty, and is now the proud owner.
