Mega Ringmaster

My local hobby shop now has what appears to be a five foot span Rc ringmaster hanging from the ceiling:

"Mega" makes me think of Sterling's C/L "Super Ringmaster"... which had a built-up fuse... I can't speak from experience; but I'm told it didn't perform quite as well as their original profile model.

 Roddie:

With enough engine up front rest assured that it would.  Very Happy

In a way Dave is correct, the only difference between the S-1 and S-6 is the full fuse. The Super Ringmaster was just heavier. I have seen a couple fly and they do pretty well. With today's modern power plants I feel it would perform just as well as an S-1. Maybe even better?

My thoughts anyway.

I just made a web inquiry.. and both Sterling's S1 Ringmaster and their Super Ringmaster have the same wingspan (42") and squares (384").. I'm not sure if the airfoil profiles were the same, or the moments.

Dave, I was referring to "out of the box stock" recommended set-up with the engines of that period. I should have been more specific.

Ron, yes... with engines developed only a few years later; it would have probably flown better. I wish Sterling was still around... I at least have some of their models... most not yet built/finished.

Roddie,

That's what I was saying, the only difference is the fuse and weight. The do fly well enough as is just not as light as an S-1. Yes the airfoil is identical, kind of a pollywog shape.

Jim, is that Ringmaster for sale?

I don't think it's a Ringmaster. I think it just has the Ringmaster stab/elev. They had a couple built up fuse Ringmasters, the Super, Super Flash, Jr. Flash, Sportster, and Imperial. I think that's all of them. Some of them had different tail feathers. Like the flash didn't have the oval stab/elev.

As an afterthought:

Remember the "Mega-Ringmaster RC rather than CL so it wouldn't need to drag control-lines aroud.  sunny
