Description

This model was selected for the 2023 Flying Aces Club One-Design to honor Pres Bruning.  In 1977, Pres published a Peanut plan of the HiPerBipe and we chose to enlarge this to 18″ span for the FAC event.  You also get a copy of Pres’ Peanut Plan!

This is not a difficult kit but comes with six laser-cut sheets (over 130 parts) of 1/16″ balsa, plus a vacu-formed windscreen and spinner.  The plan has been modified to strengthen structure on the larger model and it has proven to be robust enough for flying.  The wide-body builds bigger than imagined and seems to help the model float in the glide.

Here is a trim flight taken in Muncie in September 2022:
