Ah yes! I still have my Ace Pulse Commander with Baby Twin actuator. Used in Mini Mambo, School Girl, Roaring 20 (3X), and Skylane Jr. Was able to ROG the Skylane.

Hlsat,

That is a nice looking model but it does not really fit with the other models this thread is trying to preserve. It is a bit newer than the 1960 cutoff requested by Scott. Perhaps it would be better suited in a thread focusing on newer plans.

JavaHawk

Hi Folks.
Here is my rendition of the P E Norman Javahawk. It is modified for edf/ r/c with elevons and elevator, so a choice of pitch control options. Weight is 1 oz more than the free flight version, and 6oz less than the RC version of the day and is built as per the plan with silk and dope covering and coloured tissue trim. The maiden is coming soon.

Hi Adrian,
I just love that Javahawk.
EDF is almost enough to tempt me away from my small diesel obsession.
Quite a few of the old ducted fan designs would make excellent EDF's.
Eleavator plus elevons, endless possibilities, maybe even reverse flap movement like CL stunter for squares.

Thanks for the inspirational thread guys!

It's kept me in that nostalgic frame of mind. I have at least 2 more planes coming from this thread, that will be released at Toledo.

Love it Adrian. What kind of motor/battery set up are you using?

I've been looking for plans for a "Folly", found it listed in both indexes at pg. 237, message #3551. But the page and message numbers do not correspond and the plan is nowhere to be found. Am I doing something wrong or are the indexes out of sync ?

She's built to fly at the RCM&E Vintage fly in at Greenacres MAC in the UK later this year. Its been a plan I've held for a couple of decades and finally bit the bullet now edf has come of age.

Page numbers can be awry, depending upon how many posts/page you have your preferences set to - but post numbers are constant...
