Try swapping the plug with the one from the other engine,a hot plug can cause the very problem of throwing the prop.

Worth a try and costs nowt.

may have some info on the Eagle,a pal of mine lives in Amble and he knows the chap who owns it,could be based at eshott.

the most odd ball aircraft Iv'e seen is this one,came into newcastle about 3 times early summer and sounds like a demented wasp

Piaggio,greek reg.



latest on the eagle,it belongs to the guy who runs the Newcastle aero club flying school and is based at Fishburn in Co Durham

Can anyone tell me the width of the Attlia u/c track,building from an old Flair plan and the u/c set up is not shown,I'm assuming the kit came with pre bent u/c so there was no need to show it on the plan.

Hi Mark

Unfortunately i don't have what you are after but this is mine from many years ago,scratch built from an old plan,I originally had a ASP90 up front,I later fitted an OS120 fs and sold it to another club member and he is delighted with the performance.

Its sraightforward build so nothing to worry about

Little Toot

Thread: build to remember
27/07/2020 14:20:49


The Gipsy was built three yrs. ago and still has not been flown,the model is scaled up to 58" span.

I have a thing regarding vintage models,just checked the hangar and have hanging up -------------------------

Two Veron Cardinals,a scaled down KK Falcon ( 66" ) a 72" Buzzard Bombshell and a scaled up Redskin from a Peter Holland plan,I scaled it up on a length of old wall paper and have now called it Vymura.

One of these days i may get down to the patch and give them an airing..

Gipsy was a nice easy build if I remember correctly.
