Quote: - "THE CASE FOR THE COMPACT RACER - THOSE of you who are regular readers will recall the 'Getting Started in R/C' article in December 1966 RCM. This step by step program introduced you to the Whiz Kid [see oz8493
] and the Cessna 150 [see oz8492
] , both of which utilized the Midwest molded foam wing. By now you should be semi-pros at guiding the tame ones and are, no doubt, itching to move onward and upward in R/C with something that offers more challenge and more fun. If so, hang on for the Hoosier Hotshot.
There is scarcely a modeler alive who has not been moved by the sleek lines and frisky performance of a Goodyear racer. Yet for many of us, the fun of building and flying in a simple competition event has been little more than a dream for a variety of reasons. Certainly lack of time, skill and money are among the foremost. The 'Hoosier Hotshot' is the first of three simple solutions to your problems. Designed around the readily available .049 size engines and using the molded foam Midwest wing, this mover is easy to build and a cinch to fly with a choice of tame and hot configurations. With the growing variety of single channel equipment to choose from - a multitude of mortgage free versions await you..."
