Designed by R. GORDON
DEVELOPED from a 1.5 c.c. stunt model which was very manoeuvrable, fast and intended for 1.5 c.c. combat, the first Super Chopper was entered in a club contest which it won. Last year it won three out of five club and local contests and a Super Chopper, built and flown by one of our clubmen, took the " Brian Trophy" from the Five Towns M.A.C. in February of this year. About eight Super Choppers have been built for the present season and more are on the stocks to allow for the inevitable" wastage."
The kind of model I had in mind when the plans were drawn up was one that would be smooth to handle. have the speed of a Team Racer turn as tightly as a big stunter and have the strength of a good Combat Wing. I think that Super Chopper fills this specification as closely as possible. The rather thin airfoil and small wing area give good level flight speed and the use of wingflaps enable the model to make sharp smooth turns. The only drawback to the design is, of course, the comparatively complex construction, but if you want a model which will leave the" Wings" standing, this is it.
