The air was calm, it was mid afternoon on Monday 10.5.20, so I decided to put up one more flight with the Gollywock, after a long weekend of flying with the Flying Aces Club gang at Barron Field in Wawayanda, NY. Drift was minimal as I launched her from the SW end of the field. What followed was my longest flight ever as a flyer of a rubber-powered free-flight model that landed on the same field as where I launched it. I had longer flights in the past, but these were OOS deals with either the model specking out into the blue, or landing miles away into the next county. This flight was a special one, and will forever be etched into my memories.

The Gollywock includes a 13.5" carved balsa prop, and came in at 59 grams. Rubber is 3 loops of .187" x 44", 32 grams. Here's an article on dethermalizers: http://www.hallmanstudio.com/DT.pdf
