So call your plane the club-model airplanes and their leader — Vadim B. Rumyantsev from the city of Privolzhsk, Ivanovo region, whose hands at the local station of young technicians (syt) it was created. They say that recreational aviation is an expensive hobby, and it’s hard to disagree. But, after familiarizing with the design of the aircraft, it becomes clear that the materials used in its manufacture, and power plant, which it is equipped, not scarce and not so expensive. It seems that such aircraft can build even those who have financial resources, that is, below average. Of course, one of Finance and a love for aviation for self-built aircraft is not enough. Need special knowledge, skills, and it’s still — enviable tenacity in achieving their goals. That’s why the boys and their mentors give the plane a name is “Persistent”. Today, E. B., Rumyantsev talks about his plane readers.
I am very glad to introduce our aircraft in the “Modeller-designer” — it was from this magazine I have, then another of the boys, and began an enduring love of aviation. In one of the rooms my attention was drawn to material on a homemade airplane “the Kid” that got under my skin. I’d like to build the same on it and fly! But then to realize your passionate impulse in design simply could not: he had no tools, no materials, and most importantly, have sufficient knowledge and experience. However, the dream grew with me, and I am seriously interested in the hobby have gained the necessary experience and knowledge. Educated and specialty of technician-electrician, came to work for the station of young technicians. Worked here creative teachers and engaged in enthusiastic guys. First, we built the “earth” design: tillers, tractors, cars. Then “polavision”: snowmobile, aerolizer. And then began to design aircraft. Some of them (at first) was not able to rise into the air, but most of them fly, and I must say, not bad. About a good want to tell.
