I KNOW...the Mini Stunt and variants are SUPER CUTE, and everybody's got their favorites, but for me, this is the ticket.  I just acquired this ST-3...the same version, colors and all, that logged so much time in late afternoon flights on the main street of my home town back in the day.

It's tiny wheels demand a smooth asphalt surface, so I'll finagling some permission to use the north ramp at the local airport.  Hopefully, I won't be perceived as a threat to security!

It will eventually join the armada of plastic planes I've slowly accumulated, AFTER it parks on my computer table where I can stare at it for a while.

That sure is cute! It looks like it could fit on a mouse pad.

What is the wingspan?
Is it throttled?
What length lines will you use?

Thanks Jim!

It's got a wingspan of 16 inches, with a throttled .020 that looks like it hasn't been run.  Haven't checked the book yet, but figure to fly it on 20 feet of spiderwire.  I'll be posting a video of it's bellcrank/throttle in operation.

I'm not a student of these Cox plastic flyables, but I'm familiar enough to know I have never seen that example before. Yes, cute like a new born puppy. So far, I have resisted the notion of collecting them.

I do the same Kim, my new best friend sticks around until the next NBF shows up.

When the thread came up about the throttle control handle I wondered if it would even work on a .020. You told your story about running one in your past and I was amazed.
Would love to see this little jewel in action again. Thanks for sharing your story. Nice find.

Gonna post a video as soon as it happens. At the time, the ability to throttle the engine was such a novelty that I'd almost claim as much taxi time as flying time. I loved pulling in power and letting it gradually rise into the air, as opposed to the rocket-like launches of my other control line planes.

Cox indeed did a nice rendition of the Ryan ST-3 (AKA PT-22 WW2 trainer). According to:
Fighter Sweep: Ryan PT-22 Recruit Killer

The aircraft was redesigned with a more powerful engine, more ruggedized airframe and resulting higher wing loading. It would have made an excellent follow on trainer, but was used as a primary trainer. Due to the changes made it more sensitive to handle. Actor Harrison Ford crashed his on a golf course, which seems to live up to its name (although the crash may not be related to its shortcomings). One thing I noticed is that there was no roll brace extending above the pilot's head, so in the case of a flip over could possibly crush a pilot's skull.

Cox opted for the in-line engine version versus the radial 5 cylinder Kinner engine version. I can see why, much easier to model with no exposed cylinders to break off in handling.

It does seem prettier than the Fairchild PT-19.

Congrats Kim!!! I believe that model comes from the same mold as the army trainer. What's really cool to me is.. they seem to have the only "airplane-version" of a .020 product-engine. (as opposed to a Pee Wee/tanked engine)

Does yours have this engine/back-plate set-up?
