F1L (EZB or Easy B)


The EZB is a simple design to build and fly with broad appeal to both beginner and expert. The weight limit is 1.2 gram; the average EZB probably weighs about 2 grams.
To keep things relatively simple the propellor must be made from balsa, bracing of wing and tail boom are not allowed and the model must be covered with paper or plastic.
