"...18 pages of CL..."

Finding enough material is a perennial problem of niche interest publications, expecially for those tied to a regular publication date, so I suspect the Editor fell on 18 pages of copy like a starving man being presented with a banquet.  


Stop teasing Bill, what is it?

October and November as well! Similar numbers of pages of CL topics, never mind perhaps December's will be a little different.

It'll be too late for the December issue, but Andrew Boddington has just asked me to write this year's Nijmegen report, so I can guarantee that my piece, when it appears, will not feature any CL at all. What's more, if people are nice to me I shall try to focus on the models and keep the full page photos of Tim and me eating pizza on the boat to an absolute minimum.



(As I say, if people are nice to me!)

This should do it. I would have got it at the plunger! I'm surprised our Antipodean friends haven't twigged but I guess they're all in bed.

Yes it's the PE Norman Gamecock, famously arranged for aerobatics via pendulum control and weighing in at 36oz. I won't be anywhere near that weight, although I've built the wings and you could stick a handle on and play tennis with them. I'm confident a lighter version will fly well in a more staid fashion - I believe Alan Jupp sadly lost the original in a flyaway at Old Warden
The plunger? Used as a crashproof basis for the dummy engine - genius!

This is a Riding Chrislea Super Ace, 95% built by the late Jack Foster and passed on to me by Ray Hall. Wings and tail are done and mylared, ready for modelspan tissue. So far it's 12oz and I'm hoping for 17 and that a Mills 75 will fly it. This will be one nose heavy model.

12oz. sounds so much better than 340gms though, doesn’t it?

Chris, as you know, Mills are very variable and the best I have can lift a 20oz 43"  biplane   (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1uc07G95iKc ). The Chrislea is 54" span and the original had an AMCO 87. I am always interested how these very early models were sized and I wouldn't have chosen a .87, but then again the Blackburn Monoplane has plenty of power at 56". At the other end of the scale, a Mills 75 in a 32" John Lamble Dart Kitten?? Mine did 20 consecutive loops on a Peewee 020 when I was 15.
To repeat, this is Jack's build.

Thanks Bill.

I have a new Redfin 049 which is possibly as good or maybe even slightly better than a good Mills .75 so I think I'll go for a 41" span biplane and a target weight of <20 oz. Original idea was for 1/12 scale and 34" but that'll be way too small for a .8cc engine

I thought I remembered you doing a rough model size to engine guide in one of your articles but I can't seem to find it now, must have dreamt that bit

Rumpler looks superb cruising over Port Meadow

Look forward to seeing Jack's Chrislea in the air
