A Fond Memory
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".
