Nice video Simon. I really like watching the maiden videos. I feel it completes the shared experience of a mass build to watch the first successful flight. yes

Rosco, "Ballereno". Brilliant. laugh

I'm pleased to say my ballerina is finished. Finally. It's been a bit of a slog, but got there in the end. 😬😬😬

Even the proper carbon fiber head rest looked good in the sun. 💪

Hi all,
I know some of you have seen this but there may be others who haven't. I think it's also appropriate to put in the 'completed' gallery as well as my build thread. It is not the maiden flight/s (that is in my thread). This vid is of the subsequent flights after making some adjustments...............please enjoy smiley

Rosco, where did you get that high powered lamp you obviously had behind you; our flying site could do with one of those!

Hi David,
Ha, ha... I'm sure you have one of those lights out your way too. It's probably just covered at the moment!

Down here in South Australia, its Autumn but we're having a little run of Spring type weather....our kind is sunny but with chilly mornings that warm up during the day a little. Ironically, after the motor went 'poooof' the wind picked up and I flew another model that I could harrier land in the breeze! I wish I'd filmed them, they were almost a vertical 'sink'!

Maidened today and flies like its on rails, required a couple of clicks of up and right. Power is from a brand new SC36 which is being run a tad rich, that said I dont think I opened it right up, plenty of power to hand. Will try and get some flying shots, ground shots are off a phone, but plenty of light.

A little taster for the Greenacres event in July, this weekend at Greenacres I saw a PAW Diesel powered Ballerina! laugh Had a nice chat to it's builder whilst flying and nearly crashed into it midair with my Miss America Mustang! blush I was trying to follow it so I could see it flying!

Look out for it in July. yes

Should be interesting. What size PAW?

Not sure Peter but from the prop size and flying speed I think it may have been a PAW 29 with rc carb. He did tell me but I was a bit distracted having nearly rear ended it and keeping a Mustang flying with 5 other planes in the air! He did say that he had a pair of them sitting on a shelf waiting to be used in something.

Flew and sounded great but a bit messy!

Yes, PAWs were always notorious for slinging out black sludge.

We used to havea control line Fairy Gannet in the old club. You couldalways tell when it was about to run out of fuel because the black stream would reach the tailplane.

Well here is my rendition. OS52 4 stroke and colour scheme inspired by a PT19. Hope to fly her this weekend once final jobs completed.

Flown today, I put c.g a 1/3 of chord, few clicks of aileron and elevator and it flew nicely, shot off the floor like a scalded cat, landing just line it up and reduce throttle, tweaked it a bit for second flight, put more aileron on, rolls nice, stall turns very crisp, loops nice and big, snaps/spins easy, let go comes straight out, never felt floaty to me, feels like a well balanced model, none of controls twitchy but models very agile. Well designed pretty model. Nice work Peter yes Pictures not much cop will get some video at open days hopefully.
