  Home / Model Kits / Pro Design Series / PD-09 Russell Chambers 1938 R-1 Chambermaid(Laser Cut)
 
Kit PD-09 Russell Chambers 1938 R-1 Chambermaid is a laser cut balsa wood kit for the serious flying competitor. This kit is a modified Bill Henn competition design Greve Racer.

With retractable landing gear, a wingspan of 13'10" and a fuselage length of 17'4" the Chambermaid was one of the smallest racers ever built. Russell Chambers built this "tiny screamer" in his garage. When Art Chester saw the plane he commented, "Ya forgot the wings, Russ." Sadly on September 12, 1938 at the National Air Races in Cleveland, Chambers died when he crashed his plane into a vegetable patch.

This kit includes a full-size rolled CAD drawn plan, building and flying instructions, hand-picked competition weight laser cut balsa parts and balsa strip wood, vacuum-molded canopy, exhaust, cylinders, spinner, and wheels in up position, FAI rubber, Peck propeller, EBM thrust bearing, LaserCal™ markings (markings precut for you using our laser), and Easy Built Lite tissue in white. You will need a hobby knife, fine sandpaper, building board, and glue.

"This is Chambermaid #2. The first one has logged over 130 flights, most of which were successful. I would estimate that 45% of it has been rebuilt, patched,and recovered. It now weighs 14 grams more. It still flies as good as ever despite 4 death spirals, 3 accidental wound rubber releases, 6 tree recoveries and one full power tree strike that severed a wing." - Bob Bard
