Yes, I had Verstappen down for a podium finish. Unlikely to happen now though!!!

Need them to finish as they start now....

Changed my prediction with about 2 minutes to go before quali. Verstappen should make it an interesting journey through the pack.

I did much the same, although mine was with a LiPo.

Made a short extension lead to suit the Futaba style plg. I remove and balance charge when required.

No strain on the taranis socket that way.

White spirit.

I have used their chequered covering, both the large and small.

Easy to use, just watch the adhesive seeping from under any joins.

Have used Solarfilm, Oracover and HK film. I like the HK a lot especially the price.

That will go back together no problem.

Mine did the wing clap of death a couple of weeks ago.

Some well placed Gorilla Glue and an additional carbon spar and some reinforced tape.




A short video of the wing clap can be found here.

I built one a few years ago now. Mainly a hanger queen as I have far to many plane's and have my regulars. hmmm we have an "OLD" plane club event coming up soon.

Sad to say I cheated on the wings and had a set of foam ones made for me.

There are a good few picture's here.

And a build thread from another forum here.

Built using the full size plan and not the freebie from the mag.

I have a copy of the build article from February 2002 and the Original "Radio Modeller" article from March 1989. Can scan to PDF if required.

I contacted Trevor during the construction of mine asking for advice. A nicer more helpful person you could not wish for.

Brilliant little wing.

I have a PDF copy of the original build instructions if you need them. Shows the position of the "carbon rod" spar positions.

Ready for the maiden.

Took a long while to get the CofG, so finger crossed.




Looking at the weather forecast it is unlikely to be in the next few days.

Great picture Ken.

Just wish the weather had been a bit better. Still it was/is better than here.

Raining again today so I guess I will be in the workshop till 3pm then the F1 on the telly box.

Already looking for next year!!!

I decided against that motor as it probably would not be man enough.

Have gone for a quad motor. The one on the new "Bonsai."

Motor **LINK**

Again probably OTT, but only time will tell.

See, now I have seen the Micro Blitz...


I think I need to build one of them as well.




Got a bit bored this morning!




Just need to sort out the electrical side of things.


Can someone please suggest a setup that is available from "Hobbyking" that will give me decent performance.

I know next to nothing about electric set up's.

Thoughts on these and what size prop would I need.





Thanks for looking.

Back from me jollys.

Had a great time meeting up with Ken and his wife. Good company, and the beer flowed well.

Ready for next year already.

Any of the bars I have posted picture's from are family friendly. August is the better of those two weeks, but it will be "WARM"

Youwill enjoy it.

Kevin in the med with Ken Anderson dept!

Looks the same as my "Aldi" version.

Does the job fine, and is surprisingly quite.

Did my predictions at the time I joined.

Will be on my holidays in Malta, well flying back that Sunday so will not really have time to change any predictions.

These are purely "banker" selections and should see me at the bottom of the league.


07/03/2018 18:18:32

Are we doing it again this season?

Team selected ready to join a league...
