Thread: Maidened by 'Bird of Time' with two-axis camera

They seem to be unobtainable at the moment Geoff, although the plans are probably around.

Thanks guys, a relaxing bird with a classic plan form smiley

Flying my newly-acquired 'Bird of Time' glider with 2-axis camera mount fitted, she's decades old but flies beautifully.

Great result Mark, and a very funny remark, she just doesn't understand your achievement 👏

Thread: Bird of Time with Modern Twist

Finally got my hands on a lovely old 'Bird of Time' glider but I wanted to share the view so added a two-axis gimbal on the top, should be interesting.

Thread: British Nats in the 60s

That Maserati plate is currently sitting on an Aston Martin DBS, I wonder if it's the same owner, and I wonder if he/she is still into model planes? Great video for us 'youngsters' to watch. As Outrunner pointed out the lack of health and safety is ... and I'm not sure if this is the right word ... 'refreshing'!

Thread: DB Major Mannock

Honestly, imagine the easiest trainer you've ever flown ... it's easier than that, especially if you add all the dihedral that mine has 🤔

You're right there Dwain, I love flying my little one but this one is something else 🙂

Thread: Guillow's Spitfire Final Part
09/06/2020 18:49:59

That's a neat solution which I hadn't seen Dwain, thanks for posting it. Fibre glassing will add weight the right end though especially as I need it.

09/06/2020 07:39:15

Initially the blocks were for gluing but maybe not now. The cowl is fragile, I may eventually fibreglass the inside, the weight won't hurt that's for sure Dwain.

09/06/2020 07:08:08

Hi Dwain, the auw isn't quoted anywhere that I can see on the plans , Guillow's supply some plasticine for balance but it doesn't weigh 42g so so I'm thinking the tail is heavier than the design weight despite my lightening.

The spinner and prop is one assembly along with the thrust bearing which pulls out of the cowl. Currently the cowl isn't glued on but held by the tension of the motor but I'll have to see if that works in practice.

Well, she's done, just waiting for the weather to start the trimming process.

Thread: Guillow's Spitfire Paint and Decals
02/06/2020 19:18:14

The Spitfire is starting to look really cool with it's camo and decals, not long to go now.

Thread: My Crazy Edit
01/06/2020 08:00:03

Sounds all very 'Men in Black' Dwain smile d

30/05/2020 23:01:40

Hi Dwain, just my phone on a tripod and a Mobius hat cam which I put in the cockpit as well. 'Cosmic', what a great word!

29/05/2020 23:43:25

Just for fun I've pushed my editing skills to the limit, it's an exercise to see how exciting my newly-maidened DB Mannock biplane can be made to look!
