Plan file details

Nova - Radio control pylone racer. Quote: - "The Nova design which Bill Deans and I flew to first and second place (respectively) in AMA pylon at the last Nationals is based on the aircraft I entered in the '57 Nats. The original has since gone thru several changes; the final configuration is presented here. Nova placed first in every major AMA pylon event entered in the West Coast as of the time this was written and holds the AMA record for pylon. The record was first set by Bill Deans at the '59 Nationals, later by my-self at the F.A.S.T. club pylon record trials held last November. The record was 44.28 mph. Nova also racked up a West Coast record for open pylon with a speed of 44.5 mph. Nova is a very functional design without any frills or complex construction features. The fuselage height and width were determined by the size of the Orbit 8 receiver and the Bonner Duramite servos. Since Nova will do about 70 mph on the straight-away, stream-lining becomes very important... "
