Welcome to Jim Walker's Workshop
Jim Walker, born in 1904, died in 1958 and left 31 patents, which bring him to the forefront of model aircraft industry inventors. Jim's inventions include the two wire U-Control flying system, the sonic-controlled glider, the American Junior Folding Wing Interceptor, the U-Reely hand control and more.
We will look at Jim Walker the Inventor and examine some of his experiments and patents. Jim had a
diversity of interests so some of these subjects are not
model aviation oriented, but very interesting nonetheless. Here is Jim Walker the dreamer...
Our first entry in the Workshop will take a look at the history behind the Control Line system called U-Control.
Our second entry looks at the unique Jim Walker system called Sonic Control.
