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…
(For those who are still wondering about the odd-looking wing under construction by Jan Odeyn (our previous cover girl!) it’s his partly-completed Vought XF5U-1 Flying Pancake!)
