Aer-O-Nuts, Bob Frogner take first place in the 2003 AMA Nationals for 15 Carrier
Sportman Class. He flew a model called the Sniper, designed by Bill Bishof (of
Texas). The model is powered by an original Cox Conquest 15 running a 7X4 prop
and 35% nitro.
My first flight was a splash, I touched the ground right after takeoff so that was a big zero. The next flight was a complete flight and the last flight was the best.The max speed for the event is 70mph, above that you don't get any more points, my high speed was 65mph so I was close. My low speed was 1 min 48 seconds for 8 laps (1/2 mile on 52 ft lines). Another way to look at it is my high speed was 3.45 sec/lap and the low was 13.5 sec/lap so almost 4 times slower than the high.
