Beginners will appreciate this affordable design, simple single surface wing, low parts count, and self jigging fuselage that builds straight every time. The gentle handling DiddleBug™ will not spin and stalls are always clean, predictable, and straight ahead. Slow speed, wide flight envelope, and forgiving handling keeps the new pilot from trouble and the low mass, durable, all balsa construction makes encounters with the ground a non-event. Should you find your DiddleBug requires repair; damage is easily fixed at the field in seconds with thin CA glue.
Advanced pilots will enjoy relaxing low and close in flying encounters with their DiddleBug™. The DiddleBug's retro old-timer design echoes fond memories of childhood free flight models. The clean lines, small size, and flight characteristics will garner all sorts of attention wherever you and your Bug go!
