A Fond Memory

When I recently learned that Carl Goldberg Products was releasing an ARF version of the "Skylark" I just couldn't wait to get mine as I have very fond memories of this model. Having been a die hard free-

flighter since the last of the thirties in the early sixties I decided to attempt entry into the RC community. After many attempts trying (crashing) without success I found myself spectating at the Rockland RC Club field in Orangeburg, NY where I came across a young fellow who had a beautifully built "Skylark" from the kit and was flying it with utmost precision taking it off and landing it perfectly every time. I was so impressed I contacted Carl Goldberg who I knew from free-flight competitions since his days at Comet Model Airplane Co. Carl in his very supportive way as always found me soon with the "Skylark" kit. I soon built it installed a Max 35 and with shimmering fingers headed to the flying field to fly it. I was in Cloud 9 as I succeeded in my first take off and landing without destruction, proud as can be it was my entry in the RC world with confidence, enabling me to fly many successful sessions from then on.

Now about the "Skylark" ARF, always a builder I must admit up front I was skeptical about the ARF. Upon receipt of the cartoned unit I was impressed with everything about it, the components assembled perfectly as they are machined and cut with precision, the hardware and supplied accessories are of high quality. The covering is applied perfectly finished. I was able to assemble the model in 2 days and installed an OS 46 engine with an Airtronics Radio control system. I was off and flying you might say "Back Happily Where I started".
