If you think the economy is in poor shape today (Spring 2009) imagine what it must have been like in the 1930's! It was 1934,the Great Depression was showing signs of improvement and Cessna Aircraft Company had been forced out of business, a few years previously. It was into this environment, that Dwayne Wallace, a new aeronautical engineer and Clyde Cessna's nephew, introduced the first Airmaster, the C-34 ( the number came from the year-1934)
Wallace persuaded Clyde Cessna to resurrect the remains of the Cessna Aircraft Company and he also arranged financing to put the Airmaster into production.
Sales were reasonable, considering the state of the economy and one of the selling features was "The World's Most Efficient Airplane"
The Airmaster model evolved from the C-34 into the C-37 and C-38.The C-37 had a wing mounted flaps and the C-38 had a belly mounted drag flap.
This RC Airmaster came about, after discussions with Jerry Bates and myself. Jerry offered to provide the basic wing drawing with all the ribs and I proceeded with the rest of the design.
The construction is pretty standard stuff, with the fuselage sides being built over the plans, as well as the wings. The tail features the balsa core method.
The wing is made in 2-pieces and plugs into the fuselage, using aluminum tubes.
