Description* :
I am not selling a kit, only a new, full-size copy of a kit plan & scale documentation for a rare 61" span l-19 bird dog rc berkeley rc kit. It took me nearly 50 years to find a copy of this 61" span semi-scale rc l-19 bird dog design that was put out by berkeley about the time the firm was bought by fox. This full-size plan is not perfect and doesn't have every single parts pattern but it is all that was to be found in my nationwide searches. The model was powered by a fox .15. It is a rudder-only design that can be upgraded to a 3-channel rc easily enough. Since it is light weight and has enough dihedral in the wings to allow the model to roll out of a turn into level flight, it did not need a .20 to .29 engine. Also it came out just about the time berkeley sold itself to fox motors, so naturally a fox engine was drawn in. But my fox .15s all performed well so that was not going to be a problem. I include some scale documentation that i accumulated. I first flew the l-19 in the army from 1960 until they were sent to the davis-monthan afb bone yard at the end of the vietnam war. The 11th picture is a landing sequence i flew in 1962 for an article on ground loops for the army aviation digest. My last picture is me just in from the flight line in 1960.
