Danny, we will be making this years 'special issue' (like last years special) a factual edition full of tutorials rather than columns etc.

Good question Shaun, what did I really mean ;-) ?

Right - the model has some hard points to screw down the retract blocks but you need to make some 'pretty extensive' modifications alongside to get the servo in place and wheel wells cut or air tubes installed as you wish.

I phoned plane nutz and the words 'pretty extensive' are their's although they stressed that the mod isn't difficult.

Although I'll get shot directing you to another site - there is a thread on rcuniverse (nitro models thread) about installing retracts in this model.

The model is retract ready and there's plenty of room in the fus'
Some flyers are putting small turbines in the model!
Retracts could be mechanical or air, there's room in the fus' for a cylendar.
Pitfalls - depends on your airstrip as to whether retracts will be ok. If it's too rough then you'll need to be careful. I'd be tempted to use fixed u/c first then install reatacts later when I've got the feeel of the model.

Alice, the BMFA Nationals at RAF Barkston Heath near Grantham over the Aug bank holiday weekend is huge and has the national RC competitions alongside a 'show' flight line.

As Steve says, the Cosford show is big and run by the Large Model Association. The Cosford museaum is on the site too.

All depends where you are in the UK and travelling considerations etc.

When you think that most li-po's will take an hour to recharge at 1c then many flyers seem to taske several packs to last a session. Sometimes Ni-cd's can be charged quicker at 2-3c so you'll see a leisure battery on call.

I'm trying to contact Fleet Rc for a reader. The website is open but they're not answering the phone or replying to emails.
Has anyone had any recent contact ?

PTS is a Hangar 9 phrase. Progressive trainer system. Grab the March issue where we reviewed the PTS Mustang. It has cip-on leading edge droops and u/c fairings and fixed flaps which all make the Mustang slow and stable on which to learn. It got a good review.
The aid's can be progressively removed as you progress.
They've just released an F-22 Raptor along the same lines.

Ditto the's a super model, The Sprinter (from Puffin) is another or the new 2.6m X-treme (Puffin) which is a bigger Filip with rudder and flap.

ARTF ? what's that? ;-)

OK, well the choice is endless.
Here's two suggestions - there's the Black Horse Twister which is a copy of the Precedent FunFly which was a classic intermediate model.
The Seagul PC9 is a great follow-on model with nice scale looks.

Good luck John. Tell us how you get on.
