I'd definitely put the rudder on to the same stick as the elevator especially at this time of year then you can set the throttle to where you need it and then put your hand in the your pocket where its nice and warm ha.

Been again today at 9.30am. It was a little Foggy when I first arrived but it soon cleared up with broken clouds and a light breeze. I flew my Pushycat first just to get my eye in and then maidened my ME-163.

Maidened today at Blyth Valley Radio Model Club in broken clouds and light winds at 9.30am

Flew 3 batteries getting 5 minute flights each. And my first impression is I love it, Especially as I got it on Black Friday through HobbyKing for £35 incl delivery smile p The model comes with all servos including one for dropping U/C, Motor and ESC.

Thread: Build of a Nigel Hawes Fizza

Hi Percy, jobs done. The motor I'm using comes with a mount so I used that to mark my ply. I drilled one hole and attached motor mount and then drilled the remaining three.

Hi brfc7,

I think one of the options for the Fizza was to build on an undercarriage and some small wheels - are you adding wheels or keeping as is.

Many Thanks

Wow someone out their is read this yes

No undercarriage been fitted Redex, Don't see the point on such a small plane when flying off a grass runway. I would possibly consider it if I had the use of a tarmac one, just for touch and goes.

Been busy again today smiley Cut the hole in rear of fuz for elevator servo and glued in a couple of pieces of ply on the inside to screw in to. Also cut two holes right through the wing for the aileron servos. I've used some thin card on the top of wing to cover hole so won't see it once covered. I'll glue the servos in once covered.


Next pic shows servos installed and wires are well accessible for plugging in to rx. This was after I'd glued the wing and tail on yes


And finished off with some covering. Only the wings top and bottom to do and the 3 control surfaces



05/12/2015 20:53:06

Tail all squared up and then had a dry fit.



03/12/2015 21:47:21

Tailplane near enough finished except a little finish sanding


Battery hatch which I made a little shorter than plan as I don't need access behind F1 as their isn't any servos in their. Ply plate holding the front and magnets holding the rear.


Motor mount glued on and since i've now received the canopy i made a start at shaping the whole fuz

Arrived this morning yes Not a lot to do to get her airborne.

Definatly a total steal at that price as the pre installed gear would cost more than that.


27/11/2015 08:27:48

Bought one this morning yes £35 delivered and it includes motor, esc, 3 servos, 2 props and is nearenough ready to fly.

Profiled wings and planed ailerons and elevator to allow movement last night yes

Waiting on the canopy arriving really now then can use that to get the correct shape of front cowl.

Also servos , motor and esc arrived so I will start installing them. I've went for the same motor as I use in my Pushycat a Turnigy 2836 1100kv spinning a Apc E 8x6 on 3s 2200mAh. This setup gives 180w @ 18 Amps and 8 minute flight times.


23/11/2015 18:03:08

As above I take the time to make sure the first hole is in exactly the right place using the supplied motors cross mount and then bolt the cross mount on to the ply motor mount and drill through the other 3 holes = spot on everytime yes


Thread: CNC cut ply motor mount needed
23/11/2015 16:27:49

Well I took the plunge and made my own motor mount today. I'm more than happy with it yes

Went to Wilkinsons and bought a compass for £1 and used that against the plan to get the correct size then marked that on to the 3mm ply. I used my saw to get as close to the line as I could and then used sandpaper on it while slightly turning it.

Baz - pm me your address and I'll make you one (not CNC)

Cheers for the offer Masher, Think I will try and do one myself. I'll get in the cupboards later and see if any of our glasses are the right size yes and if not I'll nip to shop and get a compass.

Thanks for the replys.

As title, can anyone make me a circular motor mount approx 47mm across? In 3mm ply with just a centre hole of about 6mm then I could drill holes for actual motor. This is needed for my current winter project of a Nigel Hawes Fizza.

Cheers Baz......and thank you...btw what did you pay?


No bother, £8 incl p&p

Glued all the bits together that make the front cowl, ready for shaping when I can sort out a decent motor mount yes
