Sterling SE-5 Scout with 'Auto-Magic' Pilot - 20 inch Wingspan For Control Line or Free Flight, M-5

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$36   

Mid 1960s stick-and-tissue flying model with special 'Auto Magic Pilot' feature and 20 inch wingspan. Can be built for scale static display, rubber free-flight or gas powered control line or Auto Magic Pilot, where the aircraft flies by itself on a tether and maintains level flight. Features full size plans, many die-cut balsa wood parts, main spars, stringers, plastic nose radiator and exhaust manifolds, covering tissue, completely formed and painted wooden wheels, die-cut plywood parts, clear material for windscreen and steel pre-shaped landing gear struts. Full size plans are included that also include highly detailed text instructions. The kit has never been started. NOTE: missing decals and two sheets of parts have been very neatly adult punched out. Inventoried with all wood, metal and plastic parts present including plans/instructions. Sterling was a famous manufacturer dating back to the 1930/40s flying model craze. Although they continued to produce kits for decades after the flying model slump following World War II, they eventually fell victim to the general lack of interest in modeling that occurred in the early 1980s. I always considered Sterling kits to be deluxe kits as they had the action features and were much nicer than most other kits of this type.

The only falw is light corner wear. The model features variable sweep wings, retracting landing gear, detailed jet engine and movable control surfaces.

The X-5 was the first aircraft to change the angle of wing sweepback in flight, and paved the way for the legendary F-111 and F-14.

Rare. 1961 issue in the Whip Fly series. This series was quickly discontinued when they realized that needle-nose jets heavily weighted with clay and swung at very high speeds might not be safe.
