Gentlemen,

I am looking for a nostalgia model to be powered by a FOX 35. Any suggestions?

Alex:

Consider the Royono from 1956. It ran in Model Airplane News and I believe plans can be found on line.  It uses geodetic construction for wing and very large stab; fairly high pylon and rudder on bottom. Wing has elliptical tips and undecambered airfoil. My older brother built one in the late 1950s and flew it with a Fox 35 running on 70% nitro. Very good glide as I remember. (He still has the model!)

Hi Louis,

The Royono description is very attractive! I have tried but could not manage to find the plans online. Is there any site you would suggest?

The Royono was published in the Oct. 1956 issue of Model Airplane News. You might try http://www.sam1066.org/speaksplans.html

Plans can be purchased from AMA-

My friend Colo did a very good job and posted this at his website:

Lots of great choices...Nothing (?) out glides a Ram Rod 750...Jays Bird...Enlarged Dixielander, Hoosier Hotshot, Lucky Lindy. I fly a 720 Pendleton Fault.
I have seen all these fly with great success.

Louis, which fox 35 are you considering? If it's the stunt version the Ramrod 600 would be a great fit. If it's the combat special (black head) or the Rocket (red head) the 750 Ramrod would be my choice!

Scott,

It is not I who is considering a Fox 35.  I haven't flown Power in years---spend most of my time winding rubber bands.

The confusion might come from my post about my brother's Fox 35-powered Royona, built in the late 1950s. It used the standard Fox 35 from that era---the secret as mentioned was lots of Nitro.  Seem to remember the retail price back then was about $10.

Louis

PS It had a very, very good glide at 35oz.
