Professor Francisco Souza (of Uberlândia – MG – Brasil) had the Squirrel as a final exam for first-year Aeronautical Engineering students.
About 30 students used a gym and the winner “Jefferson” made the flight record of 22 seconds with an all balsa Squirrel.
The bamboo Squirrel below did very well too.
“I was impressed by the finesse and performance of his model”. — Francisco Souza, Faculdade de Engenharia Mecânica
