My interest in the Ambush 15 came in talk with my friend Jim Pacourek. He, like many other beginners in CL stunt, was having a learning curve problem. Building a fully ribbed stunt trainer was time consuming, and a lack of good weather prompted few flying sessions. Crashes were more the norm than the exception. Pacourek's master guru, Iirn Renkar, suggested putting together a small 1/2A design called the Ambush, a fully-sheeted stunter developed by Bill Netzeband for the Testor 8000 engine. In Mr. Netzeband's words: "My first sketch and data sheet is dated 5/10/77. The concept was to create a 1/2A machine that was fully aerobatic, using the reed valve 1/2A engine power level. The structure was laid out to be bulletproof, and it was designed to bounce when accidentally landed in the grass. Since it was to be a rank beginner's project, I elected to hold material costs to a minimum. Thus, the parts all came out of two sheets of 1/8 x 3 x 36 balsa. The assembly was designed to be pinned flat on a work surface to align the critical surfaces. The controls were all commercially available, at the time.
