From the Magazine:- Have you ever stood spellbound at an airshow and watched as one of the great acrobatic pilots flash past working his routine II Perfection? Very few sights can offer the same thrill. I think of the pattern as similar to an artist and his painting – very beautiful to look at, but only the artist himself can feel the fleeting, electrifying thrill of the masterpiece he created. I experience this thrill each time I complete a good pattern, land and taxi back the big difference being that, unlike the full-scale acrobatic pilot, my feet never leave the ground. So for all acrobatic champs, II Perfection is my contribution to help you attain the same thrill that I experience each time I fly. At this time I would like to acknowledge the contributions made by my wife and my family and my many friends, without whose cooperation and encouragement this development would have been impossible. Having been eaten alive by my first two Class III aeroplanes, I naturally turned to Class II to try to bridge the gap from rudder only. Having built and flown about everything that would fly Class II, I was still unhappy with many of the characteristics of the available Class II aeroplanes. II Perfection is the culmination of a long and diligent search for a Class II aeroplane that handles very well in strong wind as well as in calm air. To many this means nothing, but to we who live in Oklahoma, it means hangers flying through most of the spring and early summer because of extremely windy weather. Every good RC Aeroplane needs a heart of gold, and for this, I use my most prized possession (other than my wife and children) and that is my Logictrol 11-5. In two full years of flying, I have not experienced a single failure. Match the components with a Veco 61 and you have a winning combination! I would like to say that this plane won the 1966 Nationals as well as the 1967 Nat’s, but due to an unfortunate experience while I was completing my pattern (like a transmitter turned on on my frequency), I lost II Perfection and had to fall back on one of my older aeroplanes to finish the contest season and fly at Glenview…”
