Control line Ringmaster

#1
I built a Baby Ringmaster with Dollar Store foam board. Just waiting on the motor and better weather to fly it. I went with the philosophy of available stuff and made the bell crank out of used gift cards

Long long ago i had a control line plane with glow engine.
Engine started once when testing it inside and was silent forever after :cry:
Luckily I found out that Control line plane doesnt necessarily need propulsion, you can spin the plane with the wires:cool:

I am a little concerned of using a Gift card for your bell crank. I do not believe it will be stiff enough to stand up to the demands that control line will put on it. I believe I would use plywood at the minimum or at least some much thicker plastic..
