(based on original design by Josh Bixler)

The FT Bloody Wonder was the first plane I really learned to fly RC on. It was not my first plane, but it was the first plane I had success with. For that reason it will always be special to me. I can't think of a better way to honor that than by trying to make an already great design even better. This is my first build thread/design, but it will not be my last.

I set out to improve upon the FT Bloody Wonder V1/V2 designed by Josh Bixler. The goals I set for this were as follows:
  • Maintain the look and flight characteristics of the original FT Bloody Wonder
  • New single piece curved fuselage similar to the Bloody Micks FunBat
  • Tabbed construction for easier alignment and positioning of wing and tail at assembly
  • Multiple tail configurations to have variations of the look of the airplane
