Carl Goldgerg shoestring help

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I have recently aquired a carl goldgerg shoestring racer that was modified to rc from a control line kit and am looking for anyone who may have built one as it is an old kit and as far as I can tell no longer in production.

Hi i flew the Shoestring as a u/control and it flew great ,this was in the fiftys . The plane was a floater and it should fly great as a r/c model , go easy on the ailerons at first and balance nose heavy for first flights. What size engine do you have on it?

I was planning to either put an asp .40 or a thunder tiger .46 I was hoping you may know what the balance point was even though it was quite a long time ago also am worried about the wing mount as it does not seem very strong with only the one 4-40 size bolt to hold it down any suggestions would be very helpful
