The Smyth-Sidewinder was winner of the best design award at Oshkosh in 1969. Designed to be built from plans, the results were awesome. The lycoming O-290-g engine gave cruise speeds in the 160+ mph range. With seating side by side and the full canopy it is a ride you would expect from a fighter. Controls are extremely quick making the Sidewinder a very agile aircraft. Controls may be a little too quick for low time or student pilots. BUT IT IS A LOT OF FUN,  LIKE A HIGH POWERED SPORTS CAR!
