The clouds made a great background for flying

Is your Bf 109 plan available somewhere?

Museums were allowed to open here, so I went to the Finnish Air Force Museum. The Bf 109G-6 is one of my favourites there.

Of course I can send you a plan, you've got a pm from me with details.

In May just after the first Corona relaxations I made some further test flights with the H version. Adjusting servo movements and adding some expo on elevator did the job. The 109 flies fine and is very manouverable. Contests will be interesting with that plane, although that has to wait until 2021 due to Corona. But the normal 109 with the short wing still flies more stable. The 109 tail is very small which is not perfect for a bigger wing. But I'm satisfied!

The other model even smaller than a 109 is the Yokosuka Ohka. I built it last year with a wing span of just 45 cm and a wight of 200 grams. Very easy to fly!

Picked up my plan and canopies from the post office yesterday. Having two copies of the parts sheet is a nice touch. I think it will be a while before I start building one.

What is that other plane behind the Bf109? It seems to have a DB engine but the undercarriage retracts inwards?

Thanks for that. Very interesting aeroplane, pity it never got as far as production. Resembles one of the late Japanese fighters as well.
