Firefly

I designed the Firefly as my wife's first A plane.  It's a good flyer with 2 different wings.  The original is a sheeted foam core, flat bottomed wing with lots of dihedral and washout.  The other wing is an Ace mini foam wing with less dihedral.  The plane is quite docile with the flat bottomed wing and very snappy with the ACE wing.  A faster and more aerobatic  firefly has been built by a friend with a slightly thinner airfoil and a rudder.
