Although never a fan of lumpy bumpy plumpy planes, the designer of the GeeBee also known as the GB Sportster really had speed in mind. Granville Brothers Aircraft designed the GeeBee back in 1932 here in the USA. With a plumpy fuselage and short wings, this aircraft was build for speed and won the Thompson Trophy race in 1932 piloted by Jimmy Doolittle. He also set a new world landplane speed record of 296 mph. Nothing aerodynamic about this plane, but its short wings and thin airfoil gives it speed like a flying brick so having said that, its not an easy plane to fly. The GeeBee is considered a plane only to be flown by experts that have an understanding of aeronautics as the GeeBee has very small wings with very low polar moment of inertia and tiny control surfaces made for an aircraft that could rapidly get away from all but the most skilled pilots.
So if you are a skilled RC pilot and looking to impress the onlookers and yourself with a beautiful design and speed, look no further.
