Scale 1 1/4” = 1ft
Wingspan 36 3/8”
Engine .23 to .25
by FRANK W. BEATTY
The Fox .25-fowered Ryan has been built to a scale 1 1/4 inches equals 1 foot, having a 36 3/8 inch wingspan and a weight of 31 ounces. The ship balances at about3/4 inch aft of bulkhead No. 2 without the use of ballast and flies smoothly so trimmed.
A typical contest flight goes something like this. From an unassisted standing start, the model is taxied a quarter lap and stopped. With a roar she takes the air in a long, smooth climb and flies five laps. The ship then flies one lap at half speed and then completes the remainder of the ten qualifying laps at normal speed. The ten laps in, she settles in a long glide and touches down gently The model taxis a full lap and stops within inches of the desired goal. With a roar she climbs again, flies a lap touches down climbs again, flies another lap and touches down again. Sound like fun? It's great fun for the flier and spectators alike.
