Old School Revisited

Last Sunday, I went to the Grassy Knoll (Sepulveda Basin) with several models. The weather was beautiful, clear, mid 70's (F) and no wind.  Everything flew and I didn't break anything.

I dug my Old School, A-frame pusher out of my old models bin the night before and decided to bring it along.  It is a "square A-frame (18"long and 18" span) and is all balsa.  It was originally meant for indoor flying and has a turn pattern built into it by using freewheeling props with one having slightly more pitch than the other.  (Multi-motor rubber ships don't like to turn.) Got a couple of decent flights out of it and a lot of attention.

Video was shot with my Sony Action Cam strapped to the side of my head.
