Glad to help.

That's another good looking model you have there - was it passed for publication anywhere? It looks like it should.

Free-flight circa 1960

Chasing after these models kept me fit, especially the Cox-powered ones with opaque tanks.

I solved that one by getting a totally clapped-out BabeBee at a swapmeet(for 50p) - exchanged tanks and drilled out the poor one to accept fuel tubing to a clear tank alongside.


ps -Love the Lightning! I want one!

Me too. I have 5 Baby Bees stored away; they all have a fuel tube emerging from a hole in the tank. It also aids starting, you can flush out the needle valve. They were used on 2-channel RC models in the 80's.

Well here is a picture of my LS 150 with a modified Cox reedie .049. Flies very very well and was very easy to build!

The one on the top in this pic. is a Mini Concord, also powered by an OS 10 (which is what made me think of it!). Was given to me in the mid 70s, complete with rubber escapements on rudder and 'kick up' elevator. I think the model dates back to the late 60s, I stripped and re-covered the wings and tail to lose some weight (replacing heavily doped and painted nylon with film) ... flies really nicely with 3ch radio. It's a bit underpowered with the 10 but ROGs OK and is quite sleek ... so it's just the initial climbout that a little marginal. Rolls very axially on rudder only, and will fly inverted (but not for long - tinplate tank with fixed pickup!).

Baby Brother LS

....not 1/2A glow power, but it did fly with a Cox TD .010 when I first built it.
This is the original size Littlest Stick. This one now flys with the flight gear from a Sky Vector parkflyer. It flys very well with Rudder and Motor control! The motor control really helps with the landings.

Wingspan 20 in, area 85 sq in.
Weight: 7 oz.
Motor: ??parkflyer
Battery: 600mha NiMH, (10 min. flights)

Not more than .15 cu in ? Yes.

Six Cox 02s ? No.

It has an OS 10 in the tail.

Peter, you've got a real knack of getting the essence of a complicated aeroplane into a simple design - We all think about it, but you've done it.

More photos please?
