Control Line Combat
by MELVIN MATHEWS
After experimenting for a number of years with tail moments and tail area on this design, I finally reached a good combination. The result is a plane which is much more stable than others of its type. Center of gravity location and elevator movement are not critical.The Killer flies equally well at all speeds and has been flown with every type of engine from stock stunt engines to the hottest combat specials. Since speed does depend a great deal on the engine, use a good powerplant and the plane's streamlined design will enable it to turn in a performance as good as, and usually better than, the same engine in any other given design. Using a good combat special, the best speed reached by the Killer to date was 110 mph without a streamer and 105 mph pulling a streamer.
The Killer is versatile, too. All the above mentioned features are musts for beginners, yet an extremely stable plane never hurt the pros either. It is a winner. No offset on the engine or wing tip weight are used
