Twin Engine .09 to .19
by CLAIR SIEVERLlNG
Are you interested in a realistic twin engine control line plane which will require a minimum of construction time and cost and will give excellent performance? The A-26 Profile Invader mav be just what you have been looking for. I have always appreciated the clean lines of the A-26 but since I specialize in stunt flying, I didn't feel that I wanted to take the time to build a regular scale model of the plane. The pro- file was the answer. Expense and construction time are kept to a minimum, and performance is better than the usual scale model due to lightness. Two Enya .19 engines, with a top speed of 85 mph, were used in the original plane and found adequate. If weight is held to a minimum, there is no reason why this model cannot be successfully flown on two good .09's. The plane flies well on either of the two engines as can be seen in the
photograph showing only the outboard engine in operation. Landings are fast, however unlike the usual scale model, the plane glides well and is completely responsive to the controls during landings. The addition of a simple throttle control unit will increase the versatility and realism of the model.
