Power Rubber or Co2
By WALT MOONEY
The three-view for this interesting World War I biplane was published in the 1919 issue of Jane's All the World's Aircraft. Several features make it somewhat different from most of the other biplanes of the period. It has a large low aspect ratio top wing and a small high aspect ratio lower wing. As a consequence, the insignia carried on the wings is carried on the top and bottom of the top wing. It also has no interplane wire bracing because it uses a "Warren" truss "V" strut arrangement between the wings. Finally, the top wing was set very close to the top of the fuselage so that the pilot's eyes were in line with the wing, theoretically giving the pilot a better field of view than the more conventional biplanes.
The basic model structure is very conventional, so it will not be allowed to take up much space in this article. The model was designed to be built as either rubber or CO2-powered and the removable CO2 powerplant installation will be covered as well as an innovative way of decorating and covering the model. Finally, the wing assembly was done a little differently than usual, and that will also be discussed in detail. All the main structure is balsa and, except for the fuselage box itself, can be built directly over the plans.
