|Thread: Cambrian / Cambria Funfighter-----which to choose!|
Dark green Solartex and a couple of coats of satin fuel proofer
Took about 3 weeks to build,not flown yet and it will have to be hand launched.
it will not be me doing the test flight,need someone with fast reactions I think.
The Cambria Spit shows optional u/c but these fun fighters don't look right with u/c dangling.
Just chucked this one together last week,Cambrian Hurricane,got given two kits,the Hurricane from Cambrian and a Spit. from Cambria so the Spit. is next.
Easy build kits,spares are readily available for the Cambrian models, eg. pair of foam wings £25 Decals £10 and canopies at £6.

As you say KC, Parky was a very skilled pilot,you had to be to fly the HG,his prototype went home in a bin bag more times than I can remember.
he eventually got it right and as its name implies it was a hairy little model,if I remember correctly he had a Taipan 15 rear exhaust up front.
apologies to John for straying off topic.
Definitely the 48",got it in the car fully assembled,the Enya 60 fs was never a powerhouse,the model was flown by the late Brian Park ( designer of the Hairy Gnome ) and it flew very well,got snapped up by a club member shortly after the first flight.
so that's why the engine wont start,it's a slope soarer
I built this one in 2004,48" span with Enya 61fs up front, great flier.

Seconds but still good value.
