There are many testimonials in the blog section but here are a few excerpts:

“As a engineer working in Cessna, I was smitten by Squirrel and I read the extremely good reviews and I got a clear picture of why Squirrel is the world’s most loved model plane. I decided to build Squirrel for the competition and I am very much proud to say that Squirrel was the superstar of the competition. There were 17 teams with more than 40 different airplanes and Squirrel was the numero uno at the competition. It won in 4 categories out of 5 categories.” – Arun Prasad, Cessna
“Thank you so much for the program. The children all loved it so much so that one of the planes is now stuck on the roof of our building!” – Jean McCarthy, Children’s Librarian, Ottawa Public Library

“I love this design, and because it is so quick to build, I used it in my 8th grade report on rubber powered model aircraft where I built one in front of the audience. Thanks for such a great design!” — Jordan Loreto, San Clemente, California
“Thank you! You do not know how happy I was when I made it fly. All the neighbors out to see the Squirrel.” — Eduardo Bitencort, Brazil
Eduardo made Squirrels from local materials including fruit tree branches. He eventually made one from balsa from another model airplane kit.
