Starting with our Free Flight version BMJR modified the structure for rudder, elevator and ailerons. A 4th channel was added for aero-tow release.
Our WACO CG-4 was inspired by an article in the October 1959 issue of Model Airplane News. The BMJR kit is scaled to .44” = 1ft. Model has a 36” span with 157 sq. in area. Flying weight with a 2/350 mAh LiPo is just under 6 oz .
The Waco CG-4A was the most widely used American troop/cargo glider of World War II. Designed by WACO the Weaver Aircraft Company, flight testing began in May 1942, and eventually more than 13,900 CG-4As were delivered. The CG-4A was constructed of fabric-covered wood and metal and was crewed by a pilot and copilot. It had two fixed mainwheels and a tailwheel for service and training. For battle a drop off dolly and wooden skids were used for rough field landing. C-47s were usually used as tow aircraft. The tow line was 11⁄16-inch-diameter nylon, 350 feet long.
