Hi Geoff, guess what I've just acquired? It's three quarters finished so a bit to do but you mentioned your keeping yours electric after all. I was wondering what your setup is? Any details would be helpful

That's nice Simon, I did think about making it spin but I just want to finish it sooner than later (Spring's coming soon).

I've built a couple of the Microace's kits and their engines spin on a copper tube on the drive shaft, this means the engine isn't directly attached so spins a little slower but you'd never notice! Quite clever really.

always better not to have to maiden a plane in a force 9 gale disgust

Better but not impossible, you've set a challenge (come hell or high water), I'm looking forward to the maiden (from the comfort of my office wink).

Good luck Martin, sounds like a fun challenge, especially as you won't have any interruptions! On the other hand you may have to take it in turns to make a brew, I'm sure I won't be the only one watching every evening, I just hope the seventh day is not to bad as you have to fly it come what may lol!

If you fancy building one SW I would recommend checking out the Microace's web site, they all fly very well. I have their latest model, the Nieuport 17, documented on the Video Channel posts here https://www.modelflying.co.uk/forums/postings.asp?th=148393

Guess where I went today, 100 yards visibility but that just served to give the scene a very eerie feel, quite moving actually, just to stand and remember. I think the posts were to stop enemy gliders (?) from landing on top of the Downs?

Here's a picture of me with one:
