CB Model Designs Boomer P30 class

CB Model Designs Boomer Build

By now we are getting a lot of pages on the site because I build a lot of planes and document them. Main reason I take the time to do this is to promote the hobby, create business for my friends in the hobby cottage industry and share with other builders the knowledge I gained from my builds. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve set out to do a build only to be helped in that endeavor by an article or building thread on Hip Pocket Aviators. Or the FAC. 

My latest interest is P-30 class free flight. These are 30 inch span models built in a variety of configurations.

After seeing the planes fly with the Grassy Knoll Club last week it became apparent to be the models flew and survived landing the best. High wings with no undercarriage did the best. These planes are functional in design to get the most out of pure flying both in endurance and altitude.

As much as I love scale, for pure flying fun and excellence you couldn’t beat my Volare Products Wanderer.

I started looking into P-30. Although the Wander is a P-30 type of platform it’s doesn’t meet the criteria for contest flying at a 36 inch span and weight.

I set out on the net for research into the P-30. I found lots of kits and planes long since discontinued. I wanted the boom design not a stick and tissue fuselage. They look great and have less drag and a built in blast shield. Wind and go!

I finally found Clint Brooks of CB Model Designs and he had exactly what I wanted. Not only that the kit is beautiful and turnkey. The tubular balsa fuse is pre-assembled and the pylon for the wing already added and drill out to fit the duel wing and tail dethermalizer.

The kit includes the DT and all hardware and prop. A lot of value for 108 dollars.

Nose block is done for you right out of the box.

I ordered one and started a dialogue with Clint the owner-designer and he’s terrific.

So I’ll start building as soon as the kit gets here. That should be this week and this will be a priority build as this plane will be entered in contest and be flown often! I’m excited.
