Wings Across America 2008: The Journey of the SQuiRT, The SQuiRT Itself
The SQuiRT, (Simple-Quiet-Robust-Trainer) an electric Park Flyer model was selected the best choice of a model to ship around the country as part of the Wings Across America 2008 event due to its sturdiness and simplicity. The WAA-08 SQuiRT was donated to the project by the designer, by Bill Stevens of Stevens AeroModels.
The SQuiRT suffered at least one major crash and some minor flight mishaps and traveling problems and needed a few repairs while on the road. Overall, though, the SQuiRT survived the journey in great shape.
There’s so many great photographs of the SQuiRT that it is impossible to share all of them. Here’s a (very!) small selection of a few photos taken during its journey.
