Control Line Semi-Scale Stunt
by Jack Sheek
The Focke Wulf "FW 190" was one of the most successful aircraft to emerge from the second World War. It was designed by the Technical Director of the Focke Wulf factory, Kurt Tank. It was first flown on June 1, 1939. After only five flights it was turned over to the Luftwaffe for service trials. The wide track undercarriage eliminated one of the weaknesses most noticable in the ME 109.
Despite the lack of forward visibility which was to prove fatal to inexperienced pilots later on, the Luftwaffe pilots were extremely impressed with the nimble new fighter. The ship displayed superb handling qualities, controls were well balanced, plus a brisk acceleration. The design itself was a masterpiece of ingenuity. Marrying a bulky radial engine with a slim airframe without all the fat roundness of other designs. And it worked out beautifully. This ship not only performed well, but it looked impressive and able.
