JAVELIN
Description: This model, originally a Wilmot Mansour (Jetex) ARTF kit designed by Mike Ingram for the Jetex 50, has been expertly redrawn by Rob Smith.
The model has a reputation as good flier. Richard Woods reminisces:

“The profile Javelin was exceptionally effective. With scratch-built and sectioned wings (very light balsa thinly cambered) it could be induced with elevator to do a full loop off a soft hand launch into a light breeze and recover with about 20 feet of air still under it. These were mostly 100s and 150s. Sticking two either side of a larger but still profile Javelin did not work. If we got them started evenly enough it merely flew like a rocket and then stalled horribly. Adding weight to beat the stall killed the whole idea!”

Note that Richard modified the wing section from a flat plate.

These days, a TSP/Rapier L-2 is recommended.
