RE: Your first CL Plane? just for fun
WOW!What memories you've brought out!!!
First C/Lplane was (of course) the Cox PT-19 - more than 55 years ago, and the plane not only still exists, it still flies with the original engine (and wing #3, elevator #2, glo-head #40-something). Then I had a Spitfire that I can't remember who made and a Cox Stuka. I built a Guillows Fokker DR-I and made it into a C/L plane (didn't fly too awful well though) and I had a Lil Satan (combat ship) that I truly learned to fly C/L with. Yeah, it was learn to fly well or lose the plane in about 1/2 second. Then I went to the larger planes, Midwest P-51 was the first, then a P-82 made from 2 Midwest P-51's (awesome sound on those two UNMUFFLED Fox .35's which both power today's SIGBanshee &a Sterling Skylark - with mufflers, of course). There were others too, P-63, Cosmic Wind, ME-109, an Aerocoupe that was converted to CL from FF. Presently flying a Sig Akromaster, a Shark-45. Banshee, Skylark and a Magician - - - plus a stable full of R/C planes.
Never lost the love of turning those circles.
BTW, all but one of my old Fox &Enya engines from the 1960's, 70's &80's are still operational - and the one that isn't is a Fox .45R/C-type that broke the flywheel-pin.
Geez, thanks for the memories.
