The Sparrow hawk was a special racing machine designed by the Miles aircraft firm in England. There were several of them built and they were fairly successful. In shape, they are classic for their period in aviation history. I found the model to be particularly pleasing, both for its looks and for its flying ability. It flew "right off the board," and the best flight to date was 53
seconds in a contest at the Santa Ana Blimp Hangars. Before going into the construction of
the model, a more detailed description of the flying configuration is in order . The model was built with care to make it light, and it weighs one half an ounce without the rubber motor. It could be lighter if superfine tissue were used for covering, but because the real "G-AGDL" was red and cream, we used Marlow Engineering tissue, which has a pale yellow as one of its available colors.
