I think that the first CO2 motors appeared in the 1940's and it kind of put the kibosh on compressed air engines. It probably reduced the weight that had to be carried by a larger aircraft.

pb_guy,

     Thanks for the comment. Now perhaps someone out there will get inspiration from the book and build that huge compressed air engine powered plane. The search for this book lead to finding another book about compressed air engines for model aircraft by Bert Pond. He called it EXPANSION ENGINE POWERED MODEL AIRCRAFT. You can read more about him and Joe Ott at the AMA history site.

Thank you Down hill for your dedication to this project to bring it to completion, and for all the work involved in scanning and putting everything together, and keeping it all straight.

FINALLY !!    The final page.   I hope you enjoyed reading the book. Do more research and find other Joe Ott contributions. Many of his designs are found on the internet these days. When I realize how long it took to write this text along with all of the drawings, scanning it onto this site for everyone is the least I could do.

Final page is Chapter 41   338

How far back does the twin pusher go (originate)? I think I once saw a photo from 1927.

I sympathize with your issues scanning a book, been there, done that. You have indeed enriched our libraries with an old and useful book. My intend is to tidy up your scans and size the pages to approximately the original height. Knowing your images are Letter size is sufficient. I don't intend to repost your work. What else do you have in your library? My contribution to the modelling database was a FF Fieseler Storch with building manual on Hip Pocket Aeronautics.

     I have not been close to a computer for several days now. It has been pleasant playing with my grandchildren while at a lake in Northern Wisconsin. Therefore, this late response.

     The physical size of the two page scan is about 8.5 X 11. I will measure it when I start the last series of scans and give you the exact size. I scan, crop and rotate in an effort to make the book readable. Sorry that the sizes are all over the place. With more work I could certainly make an exact copy, but my intention was to just let the S&T family enjoy an old text written by one of the early notables, Joseph S. Ott.

Greatly appreciated, Down hill. I do book scanning myself and I know how tedious it can be. Thanks for sticking with it.
