AERO-NAUT Matador Control Line kit AN1503/00

Details

AeroNaut have re-released four of their vintage control line kits……they all date from the late 50’s….the Golden Age of Control Line...…..typically Continental the plans are a work of art as are the box lids…..there is a surprising degree of pre-fabrication with most major parts die cut or pre-shaped…..construction is a mix of balsa, obechi, ply and hardwoods……some hardware is included but usually in the form of DIY bellcrank, tank and horns etc which have to be made from the basic materials supplied…..there are English instructions and some white type tissue…AeroNaut have tried to keep the kits exactly as the originals……and apart from a few minor differences they have succeeded…..these kits are a real treat for the experienced builder.

The Matador is a well proven design which has performed at numerous competitions throughout Europe in the capable hands of Hermann Rieger the 1956 European champion. The simple construction and the enormous breaking strength make it very suitable for learning aerobatics.


With motors of 2.5 - 3.5 cm3 the model reaches speeds of 90-100 km/h.

The model kit contains detailed construction instructions with a blueprint, 1: 1 scale - wooden parts, steel wires, formed canopy, covering tissue included. Wheels, fuel tank, engine, propeller, control line, control handle, adhesives, finishing material etc. not included.
