The Panic is an extraordinarily aerobatic biplane. It is powered by a Supertigre 60, and is capable of just about every aerobatic maneuver in the book. However, if you fly it slowly, it can be as docile as a trainer.

This plane has made literally hundreds of flights over a ten-year period. It has suffered a bit from a few "arrivals" and has gained weight as a result of the various repairs. I am currently building a new one, more or less the same, except it will be powered by an Irvine 75, which should give it unlimited vertical performance, and it has the larger control surfaces so we can experiment with 3 D flying. Watch this space!
