Twin Boom - Air Trails Dec 1943


Gas powered 96" span FF. The article specifies the Goldberg Zipper and Grant X-8 airfoils. I have included these airfoils taken from other plans. They are not drawn to scale.

Freeflight rubber duration plans


I was delighted to find several of the above on this Radio Control website. Maybe many of you flew rubber years ago?

There is one plan that I would very much like to have. It is the Thermal Bug, a 30 inch span lightweight from around 1950. Does anyone have one tucked away somewhere?

Best wishes to all from over the pond!

Gnat by Claude McCullough MAN Oct 1947


Nice FF by Claude McCullough 39 1/2 inch span. Note that the airfoil cross section in the middle of the plan was kept at "full size" though the rest of the plan was scaled up.

All American ukies?


Hi, folks -
Just wondering if anyone might have plans for the Dmeco All American series - specifically the 36" and 51" Senior? I've searched the thread to no avail.
Thanks!

Ursa and Twizzler


Well after a long week in Northern Ireland (work and the North West 200) I now present this weeks offerings. Both the Ursa and Twizzler are from the October 1951 Aeromodeller.

The Ursa is a glider with swept back wings and T-tail mounting. In its day it had some contest success so it should be an interesting build. You don't see many of them floating around today, it's a shame. She looks quite pretty but a bit broad of beam, maybe there is an Ursa Minor lurking in there somewhere. It was designed by D.C. Smith.

The Twizzler, on the other hand, is an out-an-out contest model. Designed by Dick Twomey it is a 28" competition model designed for the Jetex 200. It is claimed to have a vertical climb - I bet it went up like an express lift (elevator for those in the Americas). It's a shame we don't still have these motors around, maybe the Rapier's will return!

As always the original colour prints are available (private mail me if you would like them) and if you choose to build from the plans proceed with caution, alway measure well before cutting.

Enjoy them

Al
