By WALT MOONEY
The original aircraft was built before 1912, so it is truly a pioneer aircraft. The vertical fin was very small, but the rest of the surfaces were of ideal dimensions for a Peanut Scale model.
The real airfoil section is quite suitable for sheet balsa simulation, so a simple sheet balsa model was inspired. The original model has flown as long as 30 seconds indoors, but most flights have been about 27 seconds. One change from the plans will be apparent in the photos. This is the fact that the vertical tail, as drawn, proved to be too small, and forced a replacement with a larger one. The nice thing about an all-sheet model is that such modifications are easy and quick.
