Aeromodeller free flight plans

Hi,
To AEROMODELLER November 1979 where we move indoors for a tasty scale peanut model from the Maestro himself WALT MOONEY.

This is the Harry Butler WW1 Bristol M 1C. It was used mainly in the Middle East as an advanced trainer but also operationally in Mesopotamia with 72 Squadron and 150 Squadron in Salonika

Designed and first flown in 1917 it had a then excellent speed of 130 mph but did not fight on the Western Front. Some at the time thought it’s landing speed was to high making it unsuitable for France.

The model, which features a laminated propeller while not having a great duration would look a delight in the air. Full colour information is on the plan.

Next to AIRCRAFT DESCRIBED and A.A.P Lloyd has a very close look at the acrobatic single seat AKROSTAR designed by Arnold Wagner and Herman Nagal.

Believe it or not the wing flaps used on some control line models were the inspiration for this much discussed design.


Cheers

Algy
