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…
Just back from the Old Warden meeting on the 26th and 27th of September! We had perfect weather, a very good number of entrants, some superb flying and some wonderful models. Here’s three pix to whet your appetite – rest assured your webmaster will be producing a draft report by the 5th October, accompanied by a lot more photos, Many thanks to Andy Housden as always for organising the event so well, and all his helpers over the weekend. It’s hard to believe that all three models below were competing in the same Basic Carrier Deck Class – but they were, and all three obtained high scores. It’s also true that their pilots are all very experienced and highly competitive – with this level of commitment and skill, Carrier Deck is once again becoming a very interesting class for spectators and flyers alike!
