Taurus

Con­sid­ered the model to beat in the early ’60s, Ed Kazmirski’s Taurus was the fea­tured con­struc­tion ar­ti­cle in the Jan­uary 1963 is­sue of Model Air­plane News. The Taurus fea­tured an ex­tremely thick, 19 per­cent wing that helped it main­tain a con­stant speed, and its ex­tra-long fuse­lage smoothed the beeped reed­con­trol in­puts. Pow­ered by a .45 en­gine, the 70-inch­wingspan model was one of the first to in­cor­po­rate strip ailerons, and it later be­came a Top Flite kit.
