Great looking warbirds . Alve has made a great Acrowot. Far better than my effort.

Almost finished my LX A10 thunderbolt. Bought as a kit from jepe jets. Twin wemo mini fan v2 with dr madthrust 2200kv inrunners. Stock retracts (we'll see if the hold up) fully glassed and CF tow reinforced wing. Fuse bottom has been glassed and the rest id cloth and water based polyC. Lipo will be a 6s 5000mah 65c graphine. Lets hope it flies.

Had this kit for 4 years it was about time I built it.

Hi John, that is my first Heli I bought back in 1983, A Kalt Baron 20, I bought it 2nd hand from a model shop, it had been modified on the collective pitch mechanism (basically using the same as the larger Baron 50) I still have this one now in flying condition.

One of the few models in my collection that has not been converted to scale...Purely for the reason it was the first heli that I bought so it has a special status for me. I do have another one that is being converted to scale as a Bell 222UT. The Flybarless head is home made and is pretty much scale as per the real thing

Always wanted an Irvine Tutor when I was learning to fly but never seemed to be able to get one. Thanks to Marc for building this and then selling it on unflown! I've put my trusty Irvine 40 in it and the pictures show the Tutor after its maiden flight. I did use rubber bands to hold the wings on for the flight! Having cleaned it down I realised I hadn't taken a photo of it so just dropped the wing on without the bands!

I lowered the engine mount to get the spray bar level with mid tank and checked all controls centralised before the maiden. I was amazed to find that she needed no adjustments to fly hands off! First time ever including several F3A models. Only issue is the elevator movement needs to be increased to get the aircraft to stall and spin. Will do that before the next session.

Peter Jenkins - I chuckled when as I read your comment about the centering the spray bar on the fuel tank! For a moment it was as tho I was reading "setting up" a control line model. That is a beautiful model! Good Job!

I once had an ARTF aerobat with the tank so much higher than the inverted engine that it was always a fiddle to get the mixture so that it wasn't right for upright or inverted running but it did keep running when you rolled the aircraft! I think the Tutor also looks better with the lower cylinder head.

Having cut my teeth on C/L it was, as you point out, essential to get the spray bar on the tank centre line. Mind you, with a sidewinder on a flying wing that was easy!

For some relaxation I decided to build my third or possibly fourth "Little Ship"

For those who don't know about this fabulous little model I will tell you. Designed by airline pilot Dick Schumacher and featured in his article but with only a small version of the plan in January 1950 Model Airplane News

The radio was the tiny Otarion Rx driving a Ruddervator,which was a rotating vane which could be stopped in 4 positions to give left, up,right and down.

I built on in about 1980 and loved it. The whole club built them and everyone loved it. I even did a few kits which were popular.

The model will cope with quite stiff breezes without problems. Using Rudder and Elevator it flies like a dream and will even do pretty axial rolls.

It is dead easy to build and very cheap too. Only needs an engine UP TO .10. My original even taught someone to fly..

One member had an electric version powered by a Speed 400. THat flew until worn out. I am told that there afre one or two hanging around in members sheds even now

I also did the Big Ship which was another nice version.

I thought I would have a go at E2K racing. This is my o/d model - Roadrunner. Not flown yet although it is now ready to go. And - yes - it does look like an ugly Liquorish Allsort  cheeky

Cheap and cheerful racing for the masses.

Can't help you with the Jan 50 MAN plan/article unfortunately Peter but have you considered reducing your Jan 2009 RCM&E plan (Big Ship, 58in span)? What span is the little ship?
