What makes it different? Let's take a close look at its design, First, we must remember that to win a contest or master RC it is a combination of 65% pilot and 35% air- plane. A good pilot can take just about any design of ship ‘and win contests with it, But what about the average flier? He needs a ship with some built-in advantages. “The big difference in the Taurus is the thick wing section. 1 shows the long tail mement llerons more efective then wsvel oulbeard type lr the rokah We use @ modified NACA 2419. Let's consider the ad- vantages of the thick wing section. A thick section has lots of lift and plenty of drag. We need both. Why do we want drag? If we had a ship that always flew at the same speed, the control response would always be the same. In @ full scale airplane the pilot feels the pressure on the stick and’ by this feel he knows how much control to apply. In a model, we have to judge the speed and beep accordingly If we double the speed of a model, the drag goes up four times; therefore the thick (Continued on page 52)
