About 200 of them started off the eighteenth annual Model Airplane meet. Their plane.s are too fragile for outdoor flying. Tlie rubber-band propelled craft weigh an average of only 35-1,0001115 of an ounce. The planes—they require about 45 hours to build—floated around the auditorium at about head level at a speed a little faster than a man can walk. Elgin waved a hand alongside his wavering model to show how a little air motion affected the flight. 1948 Champ Entered Competition centered In two events, the hand-launched stick models and the cabin models. | Last year's cabin class ; plon, Walter Erbach of Lincoln,, Neb., saw little chance of his repeating. He explained he had three crackups In test flights last week. with an endurance flight, of 16 minutes and 15 seconds. His entry has n 26-inch m'ngspread and weighs 53-l,OOOth.s of an ounce.
