Albert Hatful’s beautiful Mercury rubber model was introduced by Worcraft at a time when customers wanted gas models. A few years later, the smaller Senator took the model airplane world by storm, leaving the Mercury lost to the sands of history. Those who have build the Mercury know that it flies every bit as well as the Senator, if not better!
Mercury has a 36″ flat wingspan, 168 sq in projected wing area, and uses a 11-14″ propeller. With a 14″ carver prop, we recommend 16-20 strands of 1/8″ rubber, 30″ long. The included 11″ plastic prop is best on 12 strands of 1/8″ rubber, 30″ long, which provides a very strong climb.
Our full kit for the Mercury includes all of the laser cut balsa parts – ribs, hardpoints, nose block, wingtips, and even the uprights and cross pieces! The kit also includes stripwood, tissue, clear window material, and a full hardware pack including materials for a fuse DT.
