In fact, VQ have just done that with their new B24 yes

I have a VQ SBD that I fly off the slope. A nice model, their covering is weird in that it seems to be pre-printed self adhesive vinyl, which is the first time I've come across such stuff.

Hardware in the kit was fair to middling, wood seemed to be cut well and everything went together with the minimum of fuss. Would buy another VQ kit for sure.

Flying wise, she's a real treat.  Stable and solid in (non scale) aeros, no nasty vices.

PSS - Mad Max style surprise

Wow, a great set of pics there chief!

Thanks for the kind words Martin, she just seemed to fly so well straight off the board really, but thanks for the test launches Chris Barlow - gave me confidence that the tail was somewhere near when it came to incidence!

Thanks again to Phil and Steve for the organisation and putting up with lots of moaning fliers. See you all at Weston then the fabulous Lleyn!

Special thanks again to Phil for the photos - from losing flying time to be on the camera, to editing them at night so quickly yes

Hi Gareth - do you still do any soaring competitions or winch / bungee flying? Reasonably local here just north of Evesham.

Hi Philip,

Glad all is OK and that you're still getting the building hours in. Looks like a great PSS fleet coming together there too, that's really great to see!

I too used 4 servos across the back of the Vulcan, and she needed about 4ozs of lead in the nose. Well, not quite the nose actually - if I'd been able to, the battery could have gone right up behind f1, as could the lead, but things were all a bit too sealed up by then. Anyway, mine came out at 8lbs for 8 sq ft of wing area, which was a bit portly due to the great big Blue Steel underneath.

Anyway, keep up the building, it's looking great on all fronts.

How's the progress Phil?

I do love a Heron, too. I have my old one in the loft that I built maybe 30 years ago now, waiting for a restoration.

Cheers Bob, you'll be missed of course! Be sure to drop me a line if there's a good NE and you fancy a Cloud visit of a weekend yes

4 days to go men! Give those airframes a last check over and batteries topped off - it's nearly time yes

Thread: Forum members' new models: Let's see them.

Martin, yes PSS is Power Scale Soaring - A scaled down representation of full size aircraft that used either prop, jet or rocket for propulsion, flown mostly from the slope. Some PSS aircraft have been flown from aerotow too, however.

Yes, chucked off a cliff just like all slope soarers yes

Just to be clear, they are un-powered radio controlled aircraft - no noise makers, just an aerofoil and gravity with a bit of wind up a slope to keep us there.
