I used to attend a large control line event as a spectator and always thought the sleek look of the true CL stunt planes were beautiful. My CL skills ever got much past the basic 1/2a beginner pattern .

It looks spectacular just reading the OZ plan and article. I'll look further into what you have going with the conversion to RC foam board.

I too love the shapes of the classic C/L stunters, just see my Peacemaker made from Depron, using "Bob's Foam Factory Concept" it flies superbly, and can loop in about 1 second! It makes me laugh every time I fly it. Weighs 400 gms, uses about 60Watts

The Peacemaker flies great! It hand-launches very easily, flies on rails when doing smooth manoeuvres, yet is extremely nimble in tight loops. The roll-rate originally was poor so I increased the chord of the ailerons outboard, now it's great. Make one and see, it's an absolute BLAST ! ! ! !
