  1. This is the first time in 50 years since I have built and flown a model plane. I have forgotten a part of my childhood. I enjoyed it more now then I did 50 years . Thank you sincerest Douglas Dickinson

  2. Anyone ever hear of a simple airplane called – Double Whammy – ? Is it considered
    a good beginner model? Is it a good flier? Where can it be purchased?

    Thank you,

    1. Double Whammy is a lightweight indoor duration model. It is recommended by the NFFS as a good beginner indoor competition model. Plans and instructions for both a simple and more sophisticated version may be found here:

      I don’t know of a kit. Double Whammy is a Pennyplane class model. There are many kits available for Pennyplane models. Pennyplanes are more delicate than most beginner models. They require more care and patience to build and fly. They require a large, high ceiling room with still air to fly.

      If you would like to try indoor flying with a prebuilt model, try an IKARA plane.
