The UK's Control-line Carrier-Deck Site!
Control-Line model flying has been around for over 70 years. It’s a half-way house between free flight (“chuck it and chance it”) and radio control. Control-line models are physically flown by the pilot, who uses a handle and a set of thin steel wires attached to the aeroplane to give control over the height at which the plane flies, and to limit its flight path to a circle (usually 60 feet in diameter).
Carrier-Deck is one of many different types of control-line flying. It’s one of the simplest to describe (flying a simulated mission from an aircraft carrier) but one of the most difficult to perfect…
Nigel Cheffers-Heard’s excellent Carrier-Deck Video: The Original has re-appeared on Youtube with a new sound-track and The Compscrew Remix is also there for insurance in case the original disappears again – it’s slightly shorter with a soundtrack specially-composed by the Webmaster, so there can be no question about its copyright ownership!
