Control line Stunter or Sport Flyer
Wingspan 49 “
Engine .29 - .35
There are two basic reasons as to why I built this model. First of all, I like early jet aircraft, especially those used during the Korean Conflict. The second reason is the tricycle, landing gear that all of these aircraft had. I find it very easy to land a model that has been constructed with this type of landing gear.
The plan shows the basic model. You have the option to build flying flaps or not. The model can be an admirable stunter or just a great sport plane. I built mine throttled using the Robert's three‑line system. The flaps are none flying. Something that I did try though and it worked well was a brake in the nose wheel. After I land and taxi a bit, I start giving the model down. As I do so, a small control horn on the top of the elevator starts pulling on a flexible wire running the length of the fuselage and down the nose wheel. As it tightens, the brake starts binding and presto the model stops. I can now gun the engine and hold the plane.
