The blurb went along the lines of .35 for a hot combat ship and .15 for a trainer didn't it Tony? Caveat -capacities relative to engines of the era.

Self launch mono wheel Midi-Slows, Peacemakers, Skyray 35s regularly off grass in teh past. Always worked fine for me. Two wheels is just undesirable extra weight and drag.

Hi GallopingGhostler

I've used the O.S. 10 FP-S in a Mini-Peacemaker on 42' lines. That is roughly about the same size but of slightly less wing area as a Flite Streak Jnr. where it'd probably...
