Guess the aircraft
by Sal Calvagna
Welcome back. As the memory of the winter of 2015 fades and summer is around the corner, let’s hope that we all have our new models ready to go for the flying season—or at the least have made repairs and maintenance on
the existing fleet.
In my February 2015 column, I featured a “guess the aircraft” contest by posting
a photo of a rudder. I had a number
of responses; however, no one guessed
correctly. So, here is your second chance
to win a prize. I have included a new
photo that shows a little more detail.
Remember, the first correct answer will
win a heavy-duty receiver switch harness
from either Maxx Products International
(MPi Himax) or Electronic Model
Systems (EMS). Good luck!

WRAM Show 2015
The Westchester Radio Aero
Modelers (WRAM) Show was held
February 20-22, 2015, and was a
welcome attraction—or should I say
distraction—from the miserable winter
we had here in the northeast. There
were plenty of vendors and static
displays to interest all. Here are a few
samplings from the show.
