YARDSTICK:  Rubber Power Sport  Model

Designed in the classic style of an Old Time stick model, but sized to use much less rubber motor stock and perform in a smaller flying site.

It’s a ‘stick’ model you can fly in your ‘yard’ (a large park area), hence the name YARDSTICK. 

You will find yourself flying this model more than your SAM legal stick models once you build one! 

This model would be ideally suited for a One Design Competition.
