My first Mercury Mallard contest power model was built in 1958 from a kit Santa brought me. It was powered by an E.D. Hornet 1.46cc diesel motor bought second hand for £1.50p. After many enjoyable flights, several of which ended in trees, I lost it out of sight.

Now, a few years later I have an electric powered, R/C version with motor, rudder, and elevator controls. So hopefully it won’t be lost O.O.S. this time.

The motor is a DYS A-2830/8 1300kv., rated at 275 watts driving an APC 10 x 5” propeller, and the Mallard goes up as if powered by an E.D. Racer.
