I lost the Kadet in a 'hey-watch-this' moment, got her up to 340-400' and put it into a vertical dive, it was amazing how quickly it accelerated, but as soon as i moved the stick the wing separated...wham!
I was lucky it slammed into the cornfield saving the Enya.

By coincidence, my first R/C engine was also an Enya .29 mounted in a very similar Sterling Fledgling.

I was never a good R/C pilot only doing lazy circles in the sky. Therefore I still have the same Enya 29 in the same Fledgling. My son put more air time on it than I did.

I think Ron was going to put one together, or maybe it was a Falcon 56.
