MUSKETEER is an excellent first radio-controlled model glider, being
both easy to build and straightforward to fly. Although it is primarily
a slope soarer, it has also been used successfully as a thermal soarer.
Musketeer is economical on building materials and is therefore cheap
to construct. It’s ideal for car or boat enthusiasts wishing to
give R/C gliding a go, since the servos and radio gear used are standard
size and can be transferred easily from an existing car / boat operating
on 27MHz. Musketeer employs rudder / elevator control.
the Musketeer plan MAG93 from MyHobbyStore (always consult the myhobbystore
home-page first as there are sometimes special offer-codes available).
Even after 15 years, the prototype is still being flown for relaxation,
though originally it was designed (and indeed has been used) for training
The Musketeer has rather docile flying characteristics, while its relatively
simple design allows rapid construction (the first prototype was built
in just over ten hours - not including covering or radio installation).
The prototypes have stood up to some hard knocks and have also proved
to be easy to repair! So if it's a trainer you need or if you just want
a relaxing sports model now's the time to get whittling that wood.
Like all gliders in the Armada range, simplicity is the key note for
the Musketeer and conventional balsa wood construction is employed throughout.
