The homage was originally somewhat unintentional, though it was advantageous to switch from delta to trapezoidal-shaped wings for reasons of drag and versatility on these little drones; as was the case with the "Teen Series" as it followed the "Century Series".
As far as uses for this airplane go, the possibilities are enormous. It can be used as a high speed, long range interceptor; research testbed; or stunt plane among other roles.
Some usages for educators could include studies of:
- Glide ratio
- Hangtime versus other aircraft
- Weight and balance
