Thread: Lidl XL Glider

At 222 g then Simon, if the worst happens at the end of November 2019, you won't have to register it .

I like your science Simon, I think it will work.

Here's one like yours Stephen, he catches from 'one gliding orbit' after launch yes. About video time 6.50

Thread: Lidl XL glider conversions - Having fun with a 7.99 Lidl Glider converted to Radio Control

Yes isn't it.

This person - Bavarian RC - had a visit from a 'fairy' and made this from a Lidl glider.

Stating in the video note's,

'The shape of the LIDL glider wasn't too far away, but certainly it would need some modifications... so there I had my challenge, to build an A-10 Warthog from a LIDL chuck glider'.


Video notes:-
Flight video of the Lidl A-10 Warthog, having modified so many things compared to the original Lidl glider made me quite nervous before the maiden flight. Nevertheless the CG was just about right and my A-10 only needed some trimming. Flying the A-10 is not really a relaxing experience, but definitely a lot of fun!
A good conversion I think.

Really slow landing here

If you don't fancy registering ( you know the CAA thing for model flyers ) after the 30th November 2019 you can always enjoy the Li'l Cub like here, demonstrated by Frank Knapp. Love that acceleration!

The flight report in the final paragraph in the magazine that it flew rock solid is good to hear, considering how many you have designed Peter that's a great testomonary to the design.

Thread: Lil Cub
15/05/2019 18:18:18

Yes, that's a good idea.

It's great to see this, and it warms my heart, especially when you consider how our pastime is under possible alteration with extra registration etc etc.

Keep up the good work Andy.

Peter, I do like how the 'slats' are made, from thin 1/32 etc forms a aero dynamic shape to them.

08/05/2019 12:47:02

That time line and process you've given Peter may give others who want to design a model aeroplane the ideas on how to start and go about it, thanks. I hope to find the time to build a Lil Cub, but there's many others to finish off first. Nice plan by the way.

08/05/2019 12:14:33

Hi Peter, how long did it take you to research and design this model?

08/05/2019 11:30:04

Sorry I got in front of you with your typing / posting.

Yes Brian, a kit would attract a lot of builders to this model, it just the right sort of model for RC flying at it best.

Hi Brian, do you mean a lot get built from the free plan in the June magazine or someone organises a spot landing comp with these models?
