My dad and grandpa had a couple of "pattern" planes. All of them have very small rudders and were setup for very little throw.

Most of my grandp's planes were free flight converted to 2 channels, and some of my dads earlier planes were single and 3 channel. Some with rudder, some without.

My dad is really proud of all his .049 with exhaust throttles. Said back in the day, they had no throttles on most motors andjust ran them till gas ran out.

My granpa built basically freeflight models but wanted to be able to trim them in on the fly. He lost feeling in his hands from cancer treatments, and hated to fly infront of other people.
