I've had many requests for pictures and information on the Hairy Canary.
Here are some pictures submitted by a few readers. Thanks to Larry and David for sending in this information!
[David] There was another variant (of the Dareplane)
made by Mattel called Hairy Canary. Instead of electric power,
it had a hand crank to supply prop rotation. I went through two
of these as a kid in the 70's. As I recall, the reason for the
failure of my planes was simply rough landings.
