Rubber Powered Free Flight model airplane
Specifications:
wing span 400 mm;
length 500 mm;
motor 200 turns;
4 strands 1/4 inch rubber;

Paquette Biplane.

Once touted as the World's Smallest RC Biplane this 14.24 inch Paquette Bipe is powered with a Modela 270 cubic cm Motor. The tiny biplane is constructed entirely of 1/16 th sheet balsa and is 2 channel radio controlled, with rudder and elevator. The  very short 1.5 to 2 minute motor run time means that this iis not a very practical flier but it also allows for the use of the smallest radio batteries that can be found.

I have tried quite a few different types of CO2 motors for powering my tiny flying model airplanes, some cheaper and others considered expensive, but I have found none better than this Russian made CO2 Engine for model airplanes up to 28 inch wingspan. With a displacement of 0.27 cubic centimeters it has a useful speed range of 3000 plus or minus 500 revolutions per minute turning a 178 millimeter propeller.

F4U-1 Corsair

This battered old Flying Styro model airplane which was once flown with a GM 300 CO2 motor has been resurrected and converted to brush-less electric power. Using a 45 watt Indoor type Out-Runner motor teamed up with a 10 amp ESC and 400 ma 7.4 volt Po-Li battery. Radio controlled with Rudder, Elevator, and Motor control, using a GWS micro radio with two 50 gram servos, round out the set-up for this tiny 630 mm 24 in Wingspan RC model.











Guillow's Spirit of St. Louis NYP Model Airplane

This old Guillows stick and tissue model airplane, of the world famous 1927 Spirit of St. Louis aircraft, flown by Charles Lindbergh and credited with accomplishing the first non stop solo flight from New York to Paris. The Spirit was a highly modified Ryan M-2 Mail Plane. The model featured in the video clip, was once flown with a Cox .020 Pee Wee nitro engine and, has been resurrected and converted to brushless electric power. Using a 45 watt Indoor type, outrunner brushless motor. Radio Controlled with Rudder, Ailerons, Elevator, and Motor control, using a GWS micro radio with 50 gram servos, round out the set-up for this tiny 70 mm 34 inch WS model.....can hardly wait for the weather to warm, so that I can try flying it. The design is not that stable because of it's lack of wing dihedral angle and small tail surfaces. The Spirit was not always one of my favorite aircraft because of it's lack of windscreen or cabin windows. In time it's unique classic looks won me over and now I can say, it ranks away up near the top. I have a 7 foot WS model that I would fly from time to
time on special occasions (May 21), and as I recall it was a bear to control, requiring coordinated rudder, aileron and elevator just to get it to turn, without falling out of the sky. As for the Guillow's version, I have seen several videos on YouTube that demonstrate they are perfectly capable of controlled flight, and I have embedded one of them below, for as they say "your viewing pleasure."

Guillow’s Me 109
I have built a number of these fine Guillow’s kit over the years and have had some success flying them freeflight using the Cox Pee Wee engine for power. Most of them survived and have been hanging from my workshop ceiling. I had the thought of converting them to electric power and add miniature radios and see how successful flyers they could be.
