Heston Racer (Electric)
Description: Also known as Napier-Heston Racer, Heston Type 5 Racer, Heston High Speed Aircraft J.5, Nuffield-Napier-Heston J5 (and probably a few other designations).

21in span. Designed for electric power over the lines. '540-550' motor, 6x3 prop at 18000rpm, 7 to 12 meter lines.

Plan shows a brushed motor, and I suspect most would now use brushless, LiPos, and a cheapo radio for controlling the power. I suppose there's no particular reason you couldn't modify it for IC power, too.

This plan seems to be John Emmett's design originally published in Aeromodeller, August 1989.
