My Ace All Star biplane was built while I was
stationed at Robins Air Force Base, in Warner Robins, Georgia (just
south of Macon). Being mostly foam, it built quickly. I put an OS .15 engine up front, and three channels worth of radio
into it. The memory of the All Star is not very clear, although I do remember flying it in a field somewhere out on the
back 40 (more like back 400 acres). It lost its life during some dumb low-level maneuver, and went down really far away.
That involved walking through a lot of tall grass, in Georgia, where snakes and even alligators were not uncommon. I seriously
considered just leaving it there, but the cheapness overpowered the chicken-ness in me and I cautiously waded over to it.
I snatched it up and made like an F-15 back to where I was standing, figuring that if there was anything in the path, it
would have devoured or bitten me on the way in.

1974 edition of American Aircraft Modeler magazine. Below is a picture I found on one of the RC forums.
