A few rubber motor tests for the 18" Condor twin. I wanted to see how the motor flopped about as it unwound, hoping that it stayed clear of the rigging lines. If the motors grabbed hold of them on the model, it could twist it to shreds, so I felt that this was a worthwhile test & effort. Photos and film by Tom Hallman. Music via MotionArray.com.

If anyone knows of an original copy of this kit, I'd be interested in seeing or acquiring it.
