Carl Goldberg's personal Gentle Lady


For all of you RC sailplane enthusiasts, I thought you would appreciate these images.

This morning, I had the rare privilege to hold and photograph Carl Goldberg's personal Gentle Lady. Yes, this bird was built and flown by Carl Goldberg...one of my model aviation heroes!

The Gentle Lady debuted back in 1980, and is a personal favorite for many of us.

One of my all time favorites! The very first RC model I ever flew and I learned RC all by myself with this plane. My original had a home built Heathkit radio . I have had an over 2 hour thermal flight and over 3 hour slope soaring flight with the Lady. I still remember mixing HobbyPoxy in the kitchen and joining the wings together on the floor- was the only place large and flat enough to do it.

I also won first place in a Soaring contest way back in the 80's and I was up against some guys that were LSF 3 at the time.
