Has anyone made provision for removing the motor if so how?

Not sure that your colour scheme can be improved upon

Thanks for your help, now looking for a 350ish watt motor on 3s. I am interested in seeing your vid.

The reason I asked was that fitting a hi kv motor with a small prop tends to generate a high pitched scream which is not so good on a noise sensitive site.

Are there any updates as to motor/battery/prop combinations?

No i'm not from perma grit.

concerning glueing abs to veneer I th ink I used epoxy with the abs roughened. With the tailpipe I seemed to remember tha we made ours from balsa with a removable end piece as the rx battery needed to be right at the back to balance it.

I used to help Phil at skyway models.I built 2 of the original prototypes back in the early 90's (I think that about the date). It with 5 others flew all around the shows during theat tine and even survived a fly away at the woodspring wings show. It was found by a farmer some 3 mile away completly undamage apart from some hinges that got pulled out. Mine was only retired last year and the other is still being flown at our club.

From what I remember the canopy was indeed built in 2 pieces. The molded canopy finishing at the hoop. The front part of the canopy was a piece of thin acetate sheet.

The guy who designed it was well into slope soaring and I believe it made a good slope soarer.

It certainly was a good flyer (with a 40 up front) very smooth, flew on rails and with flaps down would fly very slowly.


Good luck with the build.

Thread: Models Database - any interest in one?

How about one for a smartphone maybe using handbase. Very useful when in shop/model show trying to remember what prop/battery size etc a model needs.
