I thought I'd post a few pics of my Lightning built for PSS from Tony's plans.

Not finished yet but almost there.

That was one of my many 'I must do that one someday' projects! Looking forward to hearing how your one works out Al. Good luck and following with interest. yes

All done bar gluing the CA hinges & balance. Hopefully maiden in the next couple of weeks.

It came out a bit rough but should be good for the local slope where landings are made by picking a soft tree/bush & dropping it in.

I haven't flown one PSS but have flown one with electric pusher power . VERY fast and loads of fun. Good luck and enjoy.

I too flew the original pusher powered version, I flew and looked good but was too small and fast for me. I always thought that a 'Times Two' version from the same plan would be very nice

Well the little Lightning has been to the slope twice now & both times the lift was not as predicted & too light.
Hopefully it'll grt it's maiden soon.
