Interesting RB, which program are you using, I use Fusion 360 which I find is incredibly powerful plus has lots of YouTube vids explaining how to do things but am always interested in other software.

Thanks, Ron doesn't it sound and fly beautifully those climbs were phenomenal.

Yep it sure does and the low fast passes are brilliant, I can never get enough of the various YouTube vids of the TC flying, I tend to put my headphones on and crank the volume up a bit. I just wish mine sounded as nice, although twin Laser 160v's aren't too bad!

A great vid of a FS one performing, just to whet your appetite!

Nice work Martian, it’s coming along nicely.

John if you’re selling this then may I suggest putting an ad in the BMFA Classifieds? You’ll probably get a better response from that ‘arena’.

Now that does look rather nice Jeff, well done!

Hi David. My plan was to reduce the dihedral from the 4” down to 1” for the aileron wing, but as I’m going to be cutting my own foam wings I also plan to make a standard one too, best of both worlds?

Having been made redundant many times over the years I know exactly how you feel Cliff, and I’m really pleased that it’s turned out good in the end. Onwards and upwards!

@ David, I’m sure that some versions had ailerons?

@ Robert & Alan, if not veneer then I will use laminating film, I use it on a lot of models and it is brilliant and adds quite a bit of strength.

20/11/2020 16:59:07

I agree with you Alan, I have found supplies of pine veneer but I don't know what that is like or if it will be suitable. As it's reasonably cheap I may just get some to see.

Well thanks to Robert for uploading the plans and for an encouraging chat with WR Richard, I'm going to build a new one complete with a new (and new for me) foam wing. Parts for the hot wire cutter have been sourced as has the foam and I'm just about to make the Clark-Y airfoil templates. Can't decide whether to skin the wings with a veneer or to just use laminating film but the wing will have ailerons (not that the original needed them, IIFC it rolled and spun like a good un on the rudder and elevator alone). I've also managed to source an OS 0.15 as the means of propulsion.

Thanks for uploading the plan Robert, I'm sure I had a 0.15 kicking around somewhere!

Here is a direct link to the plan (click on the photo to get to the plan) for those who also want it Aerofred

I have the 1700 FMS ‘stang and tried the zip tie mod which did give it more grunt but still somewhat marginal. The biggest improvement was changing to a 2 bladed prop!

Such a great shame that ESM went pop, their Hurri was superb and I should not have broken mine crying

Thread: vinyl cutting

This was cut from vinyl using the Silhouette Cameo, no dragging or lifting

Here is the video that my wife filmed back in 1982. If you do find the plans I would be interested in a copy of them please!

Funnily enough during Lockdown1 I came across a vid of me flying my Spatman circa 1981, will dig it out and post it on here - great plane, great hair!!!!
