My first gas-powered toy failed. Leaky plastic fuel tank.

Bummer Rocket. Hope you were able to salvage and rebuild.
It's been said that rats can gain access to your home by climbing up threw your toilet. I prefer to use the front door.

My Dad traded up to this. A slight improvement, but not a model for the beginner.

I assume those are remote controlled?
Bear your soul and take control
If the wolves are howling outside your door
Invite them in and make them beg for more!

Control line--the model is tethered with two thick 20' threads to a handle. "The pilot" stands in the center of a circle and holds out the handle with a helper holding the model with the engine running. The model is released and the threads turn a bell crank which operates the elevator. the model dives or climbs as the handle is lowered or raised. The pilot turns with the model and continues until the model exhausts it's fuel. Then the model is landed for refueling  and another mission.
