The model presented here is half size (actually 53%., of the original Nobler, and it is powered by an .049 Cox Tee Dee. The outlines were reduced photographically; the simplified construction utilizes a profile style fuselage and a flat sheet wing. Though not aerodynamically sophisticated, the large wing area permits a good flying model. It will do almost all of the pattern maneuvers--not as well as a more elaborate model. but its inherent strength permits many harmless crashes. It makes a good stunt trainer for this reason
The Nobler is one or the best known model airplanes ever designed l believe it is the only model. regardless of category. to remain fully competitive in the event for which it was designed for more than twenty five years! Top Flite has produced the Nobler kit for twenty-five years now, and while other model kits may have been in production even longer. none can match the Nobler's competitive record.
