A week or so ago I put some flying shots of my little Great Lakes on its first flight ,

As it flew I had decided to "paint it up " Steve Jones suggested I did'nt so I just added the wheel spats and the Pilot which actually locks the lipo in position, He sits on it like a parachute and his shoulders "jam " under the sides of the cockpit , So it is now ready for the sub 250 grm in November !may-19-2019_6107z.jpg

Well that looks Great and seem to fly well too.

Nowt wrong with that thumbs up

Just how much weight have you added in the finish,

It seem to struggle this time around to get airbourne and that landing was not as good as the last.

And it seems to slide in the air as if it`s on ice.

Just how windy was it this time around from the last flight.

Holy Moly, why should England tremble !!

No wonder the General Masses think we are dangerous.

I'm sorry but I don't think that is funny, frown



My thoughts exactly.


Thread: Fouga magister 1/4.5 moulded from scratch

No Problem,

I am considering doing the same with one of my models.

That is why i am watching this tread with great interest.

Forgive me for asking,

Have you made the wing already, then waxed it buried half the wing then covered the exposed part of the wing in fibreglass to make one half of a wing mould then repeat the process on the other side .

So you end up with a split wing mould .

Thread: Indoor Flying

The last indoor meeting at Rochdale today.

And managed to get my balsa wood Flying flea to fly, i had to remove the suggested radio gear ,

Two 2g servos One 2g receiver and Esc . I fitted a small receiver with on-board servo and Esc that i re purposed from a control line model.

So i only had control over the rudder and Motor.

Next year i will make a much larger one. As the weight to lift ration will be much easier to reach.

My diminutive Sterling Great Lakes fitted with UMX radio going for its Maiden and then siting on top of a telewag pole .

so it flew !!!

now it can be "painted up "

Nice thumbs up,

Be careful with the paint not to add to much weight.

Or just leave it as it is, looks great to me.

Hi Tony,

It should fly great mine looked very similar rolls where axle good speed range.

High speed flights and nice slow high alpha landings The only problem with mine was the ic engine.

Good luck with you`re maiden.

I wish i had some pictures of mine to show you, I think i still have the wings and tail plane but sadly that`s all.

Hi, all

I have not been out flying for a long time, But Yesterday i managed to get back on the field at Prestwich.

And managed to fly a couple of my favorites and try out my new camera.

It was good to twiddle those sticks again.

And the Final Video is a corker.
Hope you guys enjoyed the fine weather we are having.

I wonder why 'Former Member' bailed and deleted all his (her) posts?

I am sure someone will know who former member was.

And Former member probably said something that went against the code of practice.

So took a huff and left. when a Mod informed him/her or the infringement.

Clear packing tape is good or glass reinforced tape even stronger.
