Control line Profile
There's something about the appearance-at a flying circle--of a twin-engine. U -Control plane' that will draw the attention of the most jaded enthusiast. Perhaps the crowd gathers to watch the technique used to get and keep both motors going, or maybe they congregate to absorb the music of two engines snarling in unison What ever the reason attraction and appeal are certainly there.
Sooner or later every fan of this roundabout sport has an urge to try his hand with a dual motored ukie. A profile model satisfies the need for an easily constructed plane that is strong enough to withstand hard landings. Given a careful application of sandpaper, filler and dope finish, details and proper insignia a good looking, scale like appearance will result.
Power available determines size, which brings up the next problem. What power should be used? A pair of oh-forty-nines is a logical choice, since their output would equal that obtained from a single motor in the .074 to .09 range. Yet, the Cox .020 Pee Wee is intriguing and a power-packed gem. There seems to be quite a few in circulations. Who hasn't bought one just for kicks? Best of all, their small backplate simplifies the mounting arrangement. Out of this cogitation came the tiny P-38 Lightning.
First just a word about flight before we wade into construction Flight handling characteristics do not differ from those of an ordinary 1/2 A ukie. Line pull is certainly as great with the twenty eight foot, nylon lines, and breezy days call for more cautious flying as usual.
