The "Football" full-fuse 3D indoor bipe!

The Football is a fusion of classic Pitts Special or Knight Twister fuselage lines with advanced elliptical wings.  Despite being pleasantly un-symmetrical, careful design involving four revisions produces excellent 3D performance.  It does the best upright and inverted harriers of any airplane that I have flown.  The roll-rate is fast and axial, and knife-edge coupling is minimal.  The unique full fuselage is simple to construct (download manual here) and makes for a very rigid and strong structure.  The Football is a head-turner wherever it goes!

"Football" Hints

Do it all in a basketball court!
The Football is designed to do it all inside a regular sized basketball court.

Keep it Light!
I have specify recommended gear for this airplane.  Make sure that your gear is the same weight or less.  If you do have heavier stuff, scale up the plans to keep the same wing loading!

Bill Barber
Do you remember Bill Barber and his black and white Super Stearman?  He kept the airplane at Willow Run Airfield in Ypsilanti, MI.
