"The Rainbow I now have trimmed out and am flying with 8 strands of 1/8 tan super sport 27" long. It is proving to be a fantastic flyer. So far we have been flying it just late in the evening (when there is no wind or lift) with about 1050 winds we have gotten flights right around 1 min 10 sec. Again that is in no lift. I also wanted to say thanks for making these kits available my Father and I love old time rubber models and the Easy Built stuff has been a lot of fun to build and fly." - Mike Breen

"Enclosed are some photos of my Easy Built Models. Easy Built is the perfect name for your company for your models are indeed easy to build and fun to fly. I'm not so good on the latter activity but I keep trying. Building is the best part of modeling, anyway. I'm 84 now and have been modeling for 75 years. WWII and a family interrupted my activity for a while but I still get a kick out of putting sticks together and covering them with tissue. Send me a Fokker D VIII and I'll try to match Dave's excellent work as shown in your catalog." Read Johnson

Adding a large scoop of ingenuity, Phil Bromley modified his Rainbow for flying over wetlands. Click here to read his building notes.
"We have had some lovely calm autumn weather the last few days, and the Rainbow has had some superb flights. I've got up to 1,000 turns now, and it climbs straight and high, with a bit of a curve on the glide. I can just keep it in sight without binoculars." - Phil Bromley
