I still have my copy of this booklet bought in about 1967 and I shudder to think how much time I spent trying to get a galloping ghost system working from it (I would have been 14 or 15 at the time). I got the Ives control box working but not much else. I guess it was character-building. Still, it's good that this is preserved so people can have an appreciation of just how easy 'proportional' RC has become.
