Hercules CA Model Airplane Class
the class, the kids built their own Control-Line model called the Osborne Plater.
Bill Osborne who is founder of the Bill Osborne Flying Field in Alamada designed
this model as a trainer. It is a model airplane that is made out of foam
board that can be purchased at any art-supply store. Install an engine mount,
bellcrank, elevator and rudder, and you have a low cost airplane that can be built
for a few dollars. This model is a great trainer because it is almost indestructible
when crashing on grass. It can even do basic aerobatics such as loops and wing-overs.
The materials and COX .049 engines are supplied to the class by Bill and Estes
Industries (formerly Cox).
