Default Recent Cox R/C EZ Bee stories

I recently acquired a brand new Cox R/C EZ BEE Sport-- the single-channel, rudder-only trainer that Cox made years ago. I took the model to the field yesterday and got the expected grumpy and puzzled looks from the other modelers. I had a rough early morning with 2 fly-away flights-- we were lucky to find the EZ Bee in the high grass. I also had a few lawn dart launches and crashes before I got the elevator adjusted and my launch technique down.

Then, the fun started. I fired up the Babe Bee and launched the model into a nice, steady climb out. I'm amazed at how easy it was to control the ship with the little rudder pulses. There was even a perfect runway landing that brought cheers out of the some of the .40-size warbird guys. I felt like I was in a time capsule-- I imagine this is what RC was like in the 60's, eh?
