Hello. I was looking for information on a mid to late 60's electric airplane that you charged with a battery pack with 2 d cells in it. The plane was controlled with a cam that inserted in the plane and hooked to the rudder and the plane would a pattern, you could change the cams and fly different patterns. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks

Wow you found that fast !

How about this one..I bought some Japanese free flight models in the late 70's ( all the instructions were I believe Japanese)They had a blow molded plastic fuselage with foam wings and tails.. REALLY nice WW2 birds. They even came with a gearbox on the prop setup so that the rubber bands would turn a BIG prop. I would say the Mustang I had was at least a 24 to 30 inch wing? I have not been able to find any info on those kits. They had some fighters and even multi engine bombers If I recall.. I would love to find out exactly who made them and other info..

Oh I am just trying to see if anyone else ever had the kit I found back in the mid to late 70's. It was such a unique kit at the time I keep thinking someone else will remember them. I had a lot of fun with that plane.
