Hi ,

Thread: Sloping on Dartmoor

That looked like a nice relaxing bit of floating on minimal lift .

Their is something nice about flying a glider on up lift that i have come to appreciate .

Despite the brush you still managed to get some nice lift.

I replace the 3D printing thrust tube by Xray film. I won 20gr in the queue.
(With the heat wave the PLA melted into the car!)
I will make a variant of the mig and cut out the elements to make Mystere IVA.

Thread: The Bolt chuck Glider

I am Glad to hear that you managed to get out with the Bolt and that it Flew ok for You.

I Know it is twice the price of the Lidl Glider, But in my opinion The Bolt is twice the model and yes it does fly fast.

and will fly in stronger winds.

I add weight for the stronger winds and it can keep up with the best of them i do not understand why it is not more popular.

Defiantly scare mongering.

The picture above what a joke all the components tightly compact for grater impact damage on a structure already weakened by a bird .

I fly a lot of models without landing gear as i consider them as dead weight and a cause of drag, I like to fly fast.

Having flown ic for many years the yellow Kavan props where a must and can still be bought.

However now i also fly electric and putting the break on does help. But i have thought about designing some sort of break system that would not only stop the propellor from turning but would also stop it in a horizontal position so as to avoid ground strike.

I found it to be very windy on Saturday 20mph gusting to 35mph.

So i flew my converted Bolt glider .

Then it quickly got busy.

Here is a video to explain how it goes together.

And the Tail plane just slots onto the back as normal.


09/06/2019 21:16:49


Just thought i would share with you how put this one together.


I decided to use Pitcheron for this one as it reduce the connections to control surfaces, So i made a Carbon spar with a threaded bolt at each end with the head cut off.

And a threaded tube which would be glued into each outer wing.

This allows me to bolt the wings into position and still allow for rotation around the axes of the spar.

A Lidl Extra wingspan.


The best bit is that it will pack away into a Lidl bag.


And just so you can see the size difference .


The Lidl Duo has a wing span of 45 inch.

I have some more pictures to share with you all.

I decided to cover the wing in Duct tape for extra ding proof and add extra colour not worried about the little extra weight as i will be Slopeing it rather than gliding.

Radio and servos as my previous builds. To keep it nice and simple.
