Sunstreak is Brian Faulkner’s definitive Nostalgia era power model (published in 1956), featuring a thin, undercambered wing with full geodetic construction, rear fin, long tail moment, and moderate stab area. It is perhaps the ultimate Nostalgia design for 1/2A competition. At 36″ flat span and 173 sq in wing area, it is comfortably legal for AMA E-36 and F1S and is light and strong enough to handle the necessary ballistic climbs required. Our prototype uses a red hot E36 power system and weighs only 145g.
Our Sunstreak kit includes all parts and materials for both glow and electric flight, doculam covering, and detailed full sized plans. The geodetic construction requires a little creativity and extra sanding for a good parts fit, however the overall design is very forgiving of mistakes due to the rigid structure. Trimming is pretty simple thanks to the very conservative dihedral and proportions.
Absolutely scorching climbs with bored-venturi Cox Medallion or Mattes-modified OK Cub .049X!
