of interest mostly to the Older Age generation in the BoB's group.
At the age of 9 back in 1946 I built my first MA from balsa and paper. It was a glider and it flew well hand tossed from a high water tower. After that I attempted my first fuselage model : built from plans, with full fuselage and of course "rubber banded" .. I include a photo.
WELL : I got my pal in Argentina to track the plans and they're on the way.
I am going to RC using the SMALLEST available actuators motor and ESC
This model used to get 10minute + flights, always launched from a high water tower and my FIRST powered MA triumphs......
INCREDIBLY it's still going strong after MORE than 60 years elapsed.
have patience, I am just a Oldde Phartte !
P.S. this project is just "copying" the successful conversion done last month by a retired Engineeer in Buenos Aires. The project is published in the local MA Mag.... I think to improve this performance since his project uses "servos" and rather heavy items....whereas here we have access to VERY small stuff, actuators i.s.o. servos etc
