Control line speed
by GEORGE A. MURPHY
The 1/2 A version of "White Lighting" is a scaled down of its Class C counterpart. The idea of a 1/2 A size came about as an aid to members of the local club who wanted to break into speed flying. but on a small scale. Using the two line system and a pen bladder tank, and 10% more ether in the fuel mix, the model will turn an easy 90 miles per hour.
Use of hardwood in the construction makes for an extremely durable model. Original model has survived flying by many junior members. Youngest that has presently flown the model is a ten year old. Only difficulty experienced is in getting the budding speed flyer to turn fast enough. So if you know someone who wants to break into speed flying, the ‑White Lightning" should fill the bill.
