Micro Scale Models Super Ringmaster

Saw this plane advertised in the black and white pages of the latest Model Aviation.

http://www.msmplanes.com/super-ringmaster-rc/

Brought back fond memories of Baby, Junior and Super from my early days in the 70s. Anyone know anything? Search only returns for sale or c/l versions. That short tail moment and small control surfaces concern me, but that classic look and the dream of untethering such a classic beauty have my mouse hovering over the "buy" button...

Yep, brought back fond memories for me too. The Baby Ringmaster was the first plane I flew successfully. My 4th plane in that endeavor. My brothers and I went through pints of Cox fuel on that one.

I actually have an old kits of the Baby Ringmaster and Junior Ringmaster on my shelf. And a brand new old Fox .15 with the slanted glow plug for the Junior.

The thing that I noticed about the R/C version is that the ailerons look awfully small. I have been looking at electric control line too, it looks like a lot of fun.

I look forward to it, even though my right arm is still marginally larger than the left from holding back the Fox .35 powered Sterling SR nearly 40 years ago. Will be interesting to see their thoughts on the MSM kit. May not wait though, I keep looking at the pics...

I saw that too. Flew the Baby Ringmaster until repairs made it too heavy!!! Question.....on this RC version using a 480, what size of battery would you use? I'm thinking nothing smaller than a 1800. Any comments?

That is exactly what I am planning. I have several 1800s and 2200s, but I think the 1800 will be perfect. I think I am buying this week unless someone talks me out of it...
