Cox F2G-1 Corsair C/L Airplane

Cox F2G-1 Corsair C/L Airplane - Airplanes and Rockets

This model was bought from an honest seller on eBay.

The Cox F2G-1 Corsair was one of the first control line models I owned as a kid back in Holly Hill Harbor, Maryland. The full-size F2G used the basic F4U airframe and added a much more powerful engine that nearly doubled its climb rate. It has a break-away wing that is held on with rubber bands, but that was not enough to save it from my inexperience. As I recall, my mistaken method for attempting to fly the airplane was to hold up elevator to keep it from hitting the ground, except I would keep holding up elevator until the model eventually did a wingover into terra firma. It was not until I bought a Cox PT-19 trainer and developed a slow-go, staged training method that I finally learned to properly fly a control line airplane.

Sears, Montgomery Ward, Britts, Reads Drug, and other large department stores and drug stores used to stock Cox control line models - especially around Christmastime. I anxiously awaited the arrival of the Sears Christmas Wish Book every year to see which models would be offered that season. Here are some pages from a 1969 Wish Book.

Even during the busiest times of my life I have endeavored to maintain some form of model building activity. This site has been created to help me chronicle my journey through a lifelong involvement in model aviation, which all began in Mayo, MD. There is a lot of good information and there are lot of pictures throughout the website that you will probably find useful, and might even bring back some old memories from your own days of yore. The website began life around 1996 as an EarthLink screen name of ModelAirplanes, and quickly grew to where more server space ...
