Control line Combat
BY GEORGE BROWNFIELD
I started developmental work on "Fox Feathers," we listed certain criteria that a good Combat airplane must meet. The airplane must be fast, light, strong and maneuverable, quick and inexpensive to build. "Fox Feathers" is a compromise design incorporating the above criteria to the highest degree possible, and it is based on successes and failures of six long seasons of Combat competition.
In order to meet the requirement of quick and easy construction, a diamond airfoil is employed. This feature allows the airplane to be built while pinned flat to the table without the use of jigs and it results in a straight, warp-free wing. Also, the diamond airfoil allows maximum utilization of a sheet of balsa which is important unless you happen to be independently wealthy.
