Design by Walt Musciano
This model of the "Flying Red Horse" is the second designed by the author. The first was constructed several years ago and attained speeds just over 100 miles per hour when powered by a Dooling .29 engine. This craft was quite heavy and it was fitted with a two line control system.
The second model described here is a considerable refinement over the first craft. Construction is light, yet strong, and the airfoil has been modified. A Stanzel Mono‑line Speedmaster control system is installed which eliminates considerable resistance. When powered by a well broken‑in McCoy Redhead .29 this craft will consistently surpass the one hundred mile per hour mark. Larger engines can be installed for even higher speeds. A .35 or .49 engine can be installed to satisfy those builders that are interested in even higher speeds.
The scale sport enthusiasts will find that any engine from a .19 to .23 will produce some very happy flying for the "Flying Red Horse." Those who desire to construct the World War Two Bell P‑63 'Kingcobra" can install any engine from 23 to .35 cu. in. displacement.
It will be noticed that the plans include additional information which will enable the reader to complete the World War Two P‑63 "Kingcobra," designed by the Bell Aircraft Corp., as part of our 3/4 " to the foot scale World War Two series. The Bell P‑63 was a development of the Bell P‑39 "Airacobra" and attained speeds up to 437 miles per hour. During the years between 1941 and 1945 over 4,000 Bell "Kingcobra" aircraft were constructed, many of which were used by Russia.
The P‑63A was powered with an Allison 12 cylinder "V" type engine of 1325 h.p. This was located within the fuselage directly behind the pilot with the propeller shaft running under the pilot's seat and between his legs.
