Default RE: Back when model airplanes were cool...

The reason I ran across this video is that I just bought a COX PeeWee 020, a TeeDee 010, and some COX parts for a Japanese friend. There's no doubt that there was a whole different mindset towards science and engineering (in particular) back in the 50s and 60s. Today, engineering is about as exciting to most US students as Lawrence Welk (the very name, dates me).

A one and a two...
