The Vanguard P-18 comes to balsabuilder Magazine by way of John McGrath (Lasercutplanes.com). The P-18 event class was featured as an official STEM event at the 2015 AMA Indoor Nationals and used a design from the late Don Mace. For the Fall 2015 issue of balsabuilder magazine, John joined forces with us to bring you this fabulous quick build indoor project. The Vanguard P-18 is an ideal candidate for classroom STEM and classroom science projects and is also AMA Legal for the P-18 class event. We have built and flown the Vanguard ourselves and it doesn’t disappoint. So grab some scrap balsa, tissue, a rubber motor, and your kids – this winter challenge yourself, be a hero to your kids, and enjoy the satisfaction of building a successful indoor free flight model with a brilliant pedigree. Build It!
