Another classic from designer Joe Bridi, the Dirty Birdy became almost legendary in competition circles. The 64" 60 size Dirty Birdy was designed to fly all of the AMA and FAI patterns in it's day.
It's clean design produced a fast aircraft which moves well in the air, but landings can still be a slow as you want them to be. The Dirty Birdy is a very predictable and reliable aircraft that you can enjoy in competition or on Sunday mornings at the club.
