The last RTF I got, right before being shown "The Light" by my Uncle Wayne and his battle-hardened PT-19, was a Wen Mac Skyraider.  Like the Airacobra, some six years before, I just KNEW it was gonna be a great flyer simply by all the armament it packed !

As usual, the dream didn't match the reality, and the plane disassembled it's self after a few flying attempts.  Mine was a  throttled version, and I'm pretty sure this squeeze handle is the one that came with it.  Looking now at the line-spacing on this pup, I was pretty-well assured of anything BUT success in flying it, though I did manage to log a lot of taxi time.  

The blue handle is from the Cox ST-3 I got a couple years later.  I was much more successful with that little plane, though I went through it's plastic-peg wheels like potato chips...

My brother just found this is some some of my mom's old papers. The Christmas before Uncle Wayne introduced me to the PT-19. The Skyraider didn't fair well, though I've still got it's three line control handle
