Profile Goodyear Racer
Scale 1 ½”= 1ft
BY JOHN F. KILSDONK
This article is intended to present a good beginner's or novice's model, in an attempt to recruit more new blood into the second most-popular C l L event (Combat being first). The model presented here is somewhat of a newcomer to the Goodyear and Scale Race events.
A potential novice is faced immediately with a shortage of available models. There are only a few kits obtainable for this event, and they, in general, leave a lot to be desired. Additionally, there are only a few other models which can be made from plans; thus the beginner must choose from the above limited supply, or research his own model and scale up some three-views. This can easily be disastrous for anyone not totally familiar with the requirements of the event.
The Rickey Rat was selected as a good "first" model because of its relatively high aspect-ratio wing and long fuselage. Both of these add much to the stability and handling characteristics so important to the beginner; he will have his hands full with other problems and most certainly does not need any trouble with the flying characteristics of the model.
