Unfortunately not. The patch and wind conditions have never been quite right. I was hoping to get a maiden from some tarmac but this did not happen either.

The other thing is that I did not cut a cheat hole in the underside of the fus, not realising its importance. The thrust without it is very poor and I doubt if it would even run on grass.

Plenty of time to catch up on these things now that the field is closed.

Not had a failure (yet) on any of my HK ones.

Hi Geoff,

Unfortunately, not, it became a failed project. I really enjoyed the build to where I got, but I had a couple of 'flying incidents' with the EDFs that I was using as practice for once this was ready.

I got a bit disenchanted and decided, as I'm more a 'builder than a flier' that I would concentrate on things that I enjoy.

Good luck with your build, it would be good to see a blog. If you need a set of retracts, or decals, give me a shout. I have also got a couple of fans looking for a new home as well. It would be a shame to throw them out.
