Neil Kaufman’s Designs
I received a nice note from Neil
Kaufman, who hails from the Sudbury,
Massachusetts, area. Neil is a fan of
small-field models and also likes to
do his own design work. Based on the
assortment of photos he sent along, I
would say he is a darn good designer.
I have included the photo he sent of
his Lockheed Vega. The Vega has a 36-
inch wingspan and a flying weight of 20
ounces. On the front is a Super Tiger
motor that uses
910 mAh LiPo
Neil has also
and a Fairey Swordfish.
Nice work, Neil. Please let us know
if you make your
plans available for
sent me some nice
photos of several
small-field RC models that he developed
as electric-powered conversions from
Hacker FF kits. The Hacker line of FF
models is not as well known as some of
the other manufacturers.
I have included a photo of Ben’s
converted Hacker FF Super Decathlon.
The model has a 251/2-inch wingspan.
The flying weight is 4 ounces and it
uses the motor and radio gear from
a ParkZone Carbon Cub. All of the
controls are functional and the model
sports working flaps.
