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…
Chris Howell suffered a nightmare theft from his van on the Sunday night of the Mayfly meeting at Old Warden. Five models, including his control line carrier fleet and all his flying equipment stolen from his van. The thieves probably thought it was R/C gear. Chris is one of the nicest guys on the carrier circuit, and doesn’t deserve this. If you are offered any of his very distinctive models, PLEASE get in touch with the Police and Chris, who can be contacted by email – CLICK HERE! The items taken were: Grumman Guardian, Jen 37 (Pic1); Sea Balliol, Leo 47 (Pic2); Sopwith Pup, Thunder Tiger 15 (Pic3); Short Seamew. SC32 (Pic4) ; R/C C/L handle (Pic5); Pete Miller Cavalier Biplane, Enya 29; Blue flight box; Imax 6 charger; and lots and lots of spares.
