THE EXECUTIVE
Wing span: 18 Inches
Designed By: Lloyd Hunt
Description: This twin Jetex 50 motor freeflight airplane offers good performance and rugged construction. It's simple, light, stable in flight, and realistic looking, with a slow floating glide. It is capable of a minimum of 100 ft [30 m] altitude under power, and a long duration in its glide. The model is built up on a backbone, insuring perfect alignment and giving shape in final assembly. The fuselage bottom is cut from 1/32" [0.8 mm] sheet with lengthwise grain; wheels are of balsa, hardwood, or rubber; leading edge of wing is 1/8" [3 mm] square pine; finish recommended is two coats of clear dope mixed with a little castor oil to prevent warping. Balance should not require added weight, but if needed, balance at wing tips and add bits of modelling clay to nose or tail as required.

Under power, this plane will perform at high speeds--use only 1/2 fuel pellet in each Jetex unit for first flights. Test the model thoroughly, adjusting for a slight right or left turn. Use SLIGHT adjustments, as the model flies fast under power, and any slight maladjustment is greatly amplified. Have a friend help with ignition. Wait until you can feel equalized thrust from both units. DO NOT attempt to fly with only one motor operating. Note: Downthrust should permit adequate power trimming if needed.
