Bit low on power tho, but It flew reasonably well. More than agile enough for an 11 old. Zilch's were well before the coupled flaps innovation. Sadly, younger brother later did a v nice wingover with it...sans the pulling out part.
Always thought about building a Nobler, consequently watching this one with interest. thanx,.
Ah, the Nobler - now there is a true classic for a boy to dream about! With our modern radio gear, it ought to be fairly simple to re-create the original (i.e., CL version). Do it up like George Aldrich's original in Navy colors - because the Navy sponsored the Nats.
