aboutENGINES: "Baby TOC"
flashed through our minds when we first laid eyes on YW Engines' ultralight and
silky smooth 48cc Boxer. The throaty and exhilarating rasp of the exhaust is the
perfect complement to a 78-84" span aerobat and will raise the hairs on the back
of your neck! Never dropping a cylinder like a glo-twin, the superb reliability
of a gasser is perfect for scale models. Weighing just 51oz bare (67 oz loaded -
a mere 7 ounces more than a G-23), the jugs of this splendid engine poking from
the cowl of a 132" Cub look simply marvelous!
workBENCH: Sporting a fabulous
MonoKote job, Great Planes' Christen Eagle II is a smooth and agile performer in
the hands of an expert pilot. The 29% scale bipe is a solid and honest-flying
example of one of sport aviation's most famous designs.
flightLINE: Held in late August

International. This fun event draws pilots from around the nation and
