The Pike comes from the Czech
Republic and is proving to be an extremely effective tool for winning F3F competitions. It
has many National and International victories to boast.
In 1999 Samba, the manufacturers of the Pike, were good enough to build a new set of tip
panels to my design. On its first competitive outing it manage to break the then World F3F
Record with a time of 32.70 seconds. Following that the modified version went into
production and became known as the Pike WR.
These pages have lots of historical data about Pikes and reflect my love of the plane and
the continual improvement ethic of Samba.
The latest development is a prototype version of the WR with new wing and tail airfoils.
As of 23/12/01 I am part way through installing the radio. More will follow soon...
