Tower Hobbies' Air Core

Has anyone used this unit as a basis for designing your own? Seems to me it would be idea for a No-Cal size model, or a lightened Guillow model?

I would pull the guts out of the plastic frame. It should save weight and improve precision. I sold the aircore P51 I had because the cartridge didn't locate in the same place every time.

I like the idea of aircore, but in order to make the module transferrable, sacrifices have to be made. Weight being the big one. The smaller the model, the more critical it is to keep the weight down. At the size aircore is used for I think it's very close to the line (maybe too close). Bigger models can shake off the weight, smaller models suffer from the excess weight.

I would pull the aircore guts out of the module and mount them directly to save weight. Lighter models always fly better, especially the smaller ones.

(IMO)
