Default 'rocket model'

If you are referring to the models shown on page one of this thread, then the 'rocket like ' model is an APS 'Windbag' (actually a 'Model Aircraft' plan-but Aeromodeller absorbed 'Model Aircraft' from Jan 1966-so the plans service contains plan originating in both magazines)-it is MA 386-and still apparently available: Free Flight Unorthodox Various people have produced scaled up versions over the years but AFAIK only the original sized one is available as a full sized plan. Presumably Traplet in the UK would be your best source for the plan

Default APS Windbag

Whilst my earlier reply was correct in detail-a bit of internet digging indicates that the Colin Read 'Windbag' design is not original and is closely based on earlier designs by Roy L.Clough in the US who called his a 'Martian Spaceship'-it is possible that there are plans for this-or enlarged versions as well out there-though they may be a bit harder to locate....a google search under that title turns up some interesting images.....

I can state with certainty though that the APS 'Windbag' flies remarkably well, as I've witnessed one flying at first hand (at the NZ Nats way back in '86)

PS I can't help thinking though that enquiries along these lines might be better addressed in the vintage forums...

I ran my PAW 35 BR R/C yesterday. Wow! the new fully metered carb is amazing. The engine will idle down to 1,900 on an 11X4. A long way from the older version carb.

Thanks for posting that, it was very cool to watch! I'm a big PAW fan, and it was nice to see where they come from. I found it on Google Maps some time ago, but it won't show the inside of the building, of course.
