Alan Wood's venerable Waveguide, a throwback to a typical single-channel model. It’s a funny thing, but people will often spend hundreds of pounds on a model, yet begrudge £2. 50 at a Swapmeet for a sheaf of excellent balsa. Us modellers have funny values; we’ll happily blow a fortune on a fancy new engine, whilst keeping the same old tired NiCad flight pack for years.
