Red Lion from the Bill  Hand assembly line
Chip with 1/4 scale electric J3 Cub
Fiesler Storch with ailerons, slots and flaps.  Looks real sharp. Supposed to be a STOL airplane, but actually flew like a snap rolling brick. Neither Bob nor Andrew could tame it.
Look at all that stuff on the bottom of the wing. No wonder it couldn't fly worth a damn.
By contrast Otto's Tiger Moth flew like dream, and touched down like a feather. Genuine scale-like performance.
George Benson's rubber scale, French design -- British reg.

Jay's rubber powered Cougar -- Maiden Flight.
