New Addition: DeHavilland Beaver CO2 FF model

John Morrill’s “Zephyr” compressed air motor and the Free Flight DeHavilland Beaver model it powered are considered to be state of the art in modern compressed air design.  Designed in 2007 it won the 2009 SAM Championship mass launch, as well as three ROG events for compressed air models.  The motor can be disassembled for easy maintenance and repair and is self-lubricating.

John Morrill’s Beaver model with three versions of the compressed air tank. The Zephyr motor is installed on the long version.

Thanks to the estate of John Morrill for the donation!
