This was a collect it or it goes in the skip email to me. I went to collect wondering what electric motor it might contain. So opening up was indeed a surprise! "will you restore it"? the lady said. "more like a ressurection " I replied, however a collector friend convinced me to restore her. It was very crude s/s and heavy but very solid construction I reckon the mid 1930s the clockwork motor at first a mystery was revealed in an article by John Parker in his Flotsam and Jetsom series.
Turned out to be a top of the range clockwork motor and she runs for about 7 minutes. I put in RC! This was for the rudder and also a stop on the motor. I found by the time I got low enough to launch her the motor had run down!
