Gnome by Midway Model Co.

Plane 7

  • Type: Hand launch sailplane
  • Wing Span: 60 in.
  • Wing Area: 375
  • Covering: Monokote – clear, plum
  • Weight: 13.9 oz
  • Wing-loading: 5.34 oz/sq. ft.
  • Owner: Bruce Zabransky
  • Completed: 1/85

This is a hand launch sailplane that can also be launched by electric winch or hi-start. It is covered with about 180 separate pieces of Monokote to achieve this color scheme. The letters in the wing are cut from paper and suspended between the ribs with nylon thread. The antenna is a piece of music wire running inside the right wing panel. To save weight it uses two micro servos, a 225 mah battery pack, and a micro receiver. This plane has well over 1000 hand launch flights. It is a challenge to try to find a thermal and gain altitude from a hand launch. Most flights result in one two circles around the field followed by guiding the plane back to yourself to gently stall into your waiting hands. Costs: kit $25, glue-$10, covering – $20.

This is a great plane!

The compact classic.

The original Top Flite Contender made its debut over 40
years ago. Thousands of pilots have honed their skills
flying this classic aerobat. An ultra-thick airfoil allows an
ultra-wide flight envelope, so it’s just as adept at slow
and steady flight as it is wild, full-throttle aerobatics.
• All-wood construction, factory-covered in MonoKote
• One-piece wing minimizes assembly time.
• Performs well using economical electronics.
