Control Line Stunt
Designed, Drawn, Described by Wait Pyron
During the past few years changes in the A.M.A. stunt pattern have made an exceptionally good flying airplane an absolute "must." Although this Airacobra model possesses an amazing resemblance to its real counterpart, it was actually designed with good flying characteristics in mind. The general configuration of the real Bell P-39 offers many very desirable features for a high performance stunt model. . The tricycle landing gears make take- offs and landings practically fool proof. By side-mounting the motor, semi- cowled fashion, a cool steady engine run was assured, plus easy accessibility. (Needless to say, a, fully cowled engine can bring about a serious over-heating problem on those hot summer days.) I chose the British version of the Airacobra because of its beautiful multi colour paint scheme.
As for flying, the Airacobra will fly as well as any stunt model out today. It is smooth and stable, and will turn on a dime.
