The old Comet Phantom Flash rubber model inspired the Flash-E design by Harry Stewart. It incorporates classic plan form features such as the tapered wing and semi-elliptical tail surfaces. As designed it was intended to be a small motor park flyer but it has proven to be a pretty good soarer and an excellent float plane as well. The Electric Flash has been flight tested with a wide range of motor/battery combinations addressed in the building notes. Originally the EPU-3 brushed motor was recommended (no longer available). Today the perfect replacement is the HiMax 2208 brushles(M-112) and with a 9amp Thunderbird Speed Control (C-M-112). 2 micro servos are also required (HS-55) . Wingspan is 44" and a the flying weight is in the 5 ½ oz. per square foot range allowing some slow relaxed flying. The BMJR kit has laser cut parts, full size plans, a complete hardware package including a pull-pull control system, and detailed building notes by the designer. This model was also the insperation for the "Flash Floats" (kit # B-309) for flying off water.
