Ingenuity Corner

Aeromodelers have long been known for their ingenuity and problem solving skills. From designing a flying dog house to machining a unique retractable landing gear system, a modeler can usually find a solution.

In this portion of the museum we highlight unique items from the collection exemplifying this creativity.

The Fly Seat was designed by Ed Henry and allowed a modeler to fly a radio controlled model airplane with the same type of controls used to fly a full-scale aircraft.

The aircraft on the left is a vertical takeoff aircraft while the orange airplane is a control line model that could perform rolls.

The Flying Dog House and the Flying Flag are popular radio control designs flown by model airplane airshow teams.
