Anyone built or flown a sterling Mambo Special.

I think this had trike landing gear and had 52" span.

Yes, I built the Mambo Special in 1970. It did have trike landing gear and 52" span. Used a OS Max 19 and Heathkit radio.

Check out the other vintage site.
There was discussion of this model there last year.

Mambo Special

I had one around 1969. Had OS35, Logictrol 4 channel radio with three servos. It was my first "real" RC airplane. My very first one was a single channel, galloping ghost, Testor's Skyhawk Ready To Fly (really!). This all took place in Puerto Rico. I actually have some pics of the MamboSpecial dated 1969!
