Abstract

<P>Maquette d'avion propulsée manuellement par la force centrifuge à l'aide d'un fil attaché à une canne de même longueur que le fil qui permet toutes sortes de manoeuvres acrobatiques ainsi que l'atterrissage. Ce système permet de réaliser des maquettes de vol circulaire sans moteur, donc d'un prix de revient compétitif. </P><P>Toutes les maquettes plastiques actuelles assez grandes peuvent ainsi voler au prix de légères améliorations. Leur production en grande série au prix de jouets courants trouverait aux yeux des jeunes un attrait certain.</P>
Toy aircraft are claimed which fly in response to the pull of a line spun with the assistance of a rod such as a fishing rod. Pref. the aircraft is of lightweight construction, e.g. having a plastic body distended by injection of expanded polystyrene, and reinforced where necessary to provide support for the tie line and for the undercarriage. Pref. the rod is of similar length to the line used, the upper section is stiffer than that of a typical fishing rod, and the line is guided through an eye which is free to rotate at the top of the rod.
