Control Line Stunter
By Wellington L. Way, Jr. .
At first, of course, it gave birth to several unflyable ugly ducklings, which in turn gave birth to a ruptured ego. So, with a few pencils, several sheets of paper, a pot of coffee, and a carton of cigs, we sat down at the drawing board and used four solid hours for the sole purpose of thinking. It is rather inaccurate to say that Spook was designed; actu ally, it evolved from this series of abortive designs and skull sessions.
Spook isn't really new; it embodies the old, tried and true principles of low wing loading, low power loading, and a close coupled tail moment arm. Its only new facet is that it locks and to a certain extent, flies like something you'd hang a Fox .35 on. Spook, in fact, has quite a few big plane features the dropable take off gear, for example, seldom found on 1/2 A models. The builder, however, is at liberty to use fixed gear or none at all. The whole design is flexible enough to allow many variations without sacrificing anything in the way of performance,
The fuselage is made compact enough to allow a total wing area of 88 sq. in. or a 20" span. Overall length, prop nut to elevator is 13". All in all, Spook is an attempt at combining sound stunt design and sharp, realistic appearance.
