CONTROL LINE COMBAT
ENGINE .09 to .15
By PAUL DEL GATTO
Combat flying is growing steadily throughout the country because of the many thrills it affords for both spectator and contestant. It is an event which appeals especially to modellers who like to fly just for fun or want the excitement of precision aerobatics without stunt's finish requirements.
Because of the sometimes short life of combat designs, the models have' leaned towards simplicity and functionality. With such emphasis, combat designs can be turned out rapidly and inexpensively, permitting more time for flying fun. The scale 'profile design follows this line of reasoning, and also offers excellent performance, as well as added realism to combat flying. We have had several designs in the air now with engines from .09 to .15 displacements both glo- plug and diesel, and the results were most satisfactory.
This Hawker Typhoon is one of our favourites because' of the surprising amount of realism we could achieve, despite the fact that it was a profile model. Don't be fooled by the moderately low wing position, because the' model is capable of doing everything in the book, even with an .09. We have had equal success with mid-wing; shoulder wing and even low wing designs
