In 1954 I built the Vic Smeed Paageboy FF model. After an article in Aeromodeller July 1953

67 Years later I have been encouraged at my indoor club to build a 60% version of it with full RC.

It has been a great exercise and I am currently writing the article explaining how I built up the model again and how it flew. photos etc.

With great help from club mates include one who laser cut the parts for me etc.

Are you interested in the article?

There's a history of the PAA Load class competitions here: PAA Load history and rules

PAA stands for Pan American Airways, the competition sponsor. The objective of the competition was to carry a payload representing one or two passengers, depending on the class, A or B. The 'passengers' had to be visible from the front and sides, so the models tended to have glazxed cockpits.

KeilKraft even kitted a PAA Load model, the Halo. KeilKraft Halo, PAA Load class model for 1cc engines
