Aeromodeller free flight plans

Hi,
To AEROMODELLER AUGUST 1996 with the cover featuring two great models.

The first is a one to one “Ali” from Richmond America proudly designed by her Mum an Dad.

Oh, yes, and the second is a YAK 15 ducted fan scale free flight model

The first free flight plan was for the YAK-15/17 by RON BADDORF.

This is a rather an impressive 37” wingspan model powered by the Hi-Line Blue Flame Blaster unit.

The construction article gives all the detail with Ron advising once again that the lighter you build the better it will fly.

He said it is most gratifying and realistic to watch as it flies by.

Next the first of two full size free flight plans the ELECTRIC CARDINAL by COLIN SMITH son of the original VERON CARDINAL designer PHIL SMITH..

The VERON model had a wingspan of 35 inches while this version comes in at 25 inches making it also suitable for a CO2 motor.

Colin said he scaled it down almost exactly and it created a lot of interest at his local flying field when ever flown

The second full size plan takes us indoors with TERRAPLANE a contest chuck glider by KEVIN BROWN.

Much use is made of Depron in the construction with Kevin advising it is user friendly . Full trimming details are given.

Cheers

Algy
