Not sure if this has been posted on this forum but if not I definitely wanted to share it with those who may not be aware that Disneyland had an entire space designated for COX! Small Cox Logo  Cool Yeah that's right, apparently Walt Disney himself loved the hobby and insisted on keeping this going until they finally removed it for Tomorrowland.  Here is the great site that discusses it and at the bottom of the webpage is a YouTube video showing it all! Just awesome!!!  RC Plane    Flying   Popcorn  Babe Bee .049    Small Cox Logo

It's been touched on here before, but not to this extent.  My favorite quote from the text;

The sound of the first plane gathered quite a crowd. I know it was early in the show because the Mercedes Benz race cars have their hoods up, ready to be started. This happened after the Lil Stinker, Curtis Pusher and Piper Comanche were flown. The next step was to power up the boats, and then the cars. The Comanche was flown low and slow because it was very large and to dangerous to fly at full speed on such short lines, and we wanted to keep it below the fence for safety. The Curtis was design to go slow (just like the original) and was not flown at such a high angle

And a favorite picture. Thanks for sharing.

Had my set since 1998. Recently saw on an auction site that the pair of wings went for over $135.00. Crazy money.

In the link above is the mention of Bart Kaplinski. I'm not certain but that might be Bart pictured in the circle holding the plane. Bart is friends of Larry Renger ( Former Cox engineer) I believe Bart is still active in the modelling community. Larry set out to design many models for 1/2A stunt and I believe that Bart was flying them for Larry. Larry will be the first to tell you that his passion is in design and flying takes a bit of a backseat. He does fair, but others fly his planes much better than he does. This is a few years back but I recall Bart building a 1/2A I-beam wing plane which was just a work of art. I would like to find a picture of that plane as it was truly beautiful.

I stole this photo from the face page, cover of 1959 mag. I believe the guy that posted it is a member here also, seems like I have seen his name before.
