I also rarely fly my original from the same time period, though it does still fly. Definitely going to order one of these, thanks for posting it less gravity.Gee - I still got my original that I built back in 1974! Might want to build another so I don't have to fly my vintage bird!
A3-4T is my preferred motor, A10-3T ejects with the model still going up at a pretty good clip. 1/2A3-2T is really a waste unless your in a very very small parking lot type field.
Agreed - a fair amount of nose weight is needed on this model to make it stable, IIRC, it used 2 NCW-1 lead weights at the base of the NC.A3-4T is my preferred motor, A10-3T ejects with the model still going up at a pretty good clip. 1/2A3-2T is really a waste unless your in a very very small parking lot type field.
Gotta have it! Too much bother/expense/risk to lug out my Madcow Bomarc or even to fly my vintage Estes Bomarc 1.3".
My two Mini-Bomarc models arrived from BMS, today.
They look very nice.
Have you started building yet? I have a question about the 1st step.
On the NOTE sheet of instructions, you are asked to glue the 3/16 half round
to a strip of bass wood. Why? The half round fits the cut out on the tail
without the extra strip. JIMZ instructions don't show the strip at all.
I'm so confused.
Mine showed up yesterday and I can't wait to get started. I'll have to go to the Air Force Museum and get an up close view for inspiration...
