i wouldnt know much abt the winder because i havent physically used one of them before but i did see a team use on at regs and it was very clicky tiny and didnt seem like a durable long lasting winder (not that it rly matters it gets the job done sooo)fifty_missions wrote:Interesting. That "Crappy" Airplane just flew a 1:38 in our local gym. The AMA Alpha is out-of-stock for a good reason, it flies and flies well for an airplane assembled in 5 minutes. In fact, it will be the focus of Science Olympiad's new trial event AERIAL SCRAMBLE.just a warning its not a gr8 winder, but itll work if youre on a budget

As for the Crappy winder... are you kidding? It is a 20:1 winder that is extremely robust with smooth action! Not only is it the only one on the market, it would cost $30 if it were available on its own. At $7.95 the kit is a steal with airplane and winder.

yes thats the point im making it includes a plane and a winder w rubber for a v low price
thing is by crappy i mean it isnt the most ideal plane for this event
its quite tiny might be heavy but i have no idea because i believe its made out of foam and some plastic
and other kits would do you more good then this
get what im saying?
but yeah if you have limited budget and dont plan to invest in a better winder, that would be fine
and you get a bonus plane to mess around w
