Not a fairman, it had a circular wing, with a hole in the middle, like a toroidal magnet, and a fuselage laid between the outer circumference. I still have the magazine, but it's with an ex pupil. Must get it back.

Don,

were you thinking of the Lee Richards annular wing?

Image result for Lee Richards Annular Biplane

This is the model in the Science Museum, but there's also the biplane version featured in the 'Those Magnificent Men' film.

That's the one. Thank you, it's been bugging me. Mine did a lot of flying, and I just thought of it as doughnut.

That Lee Richards design looks like the 'toilet seat' guitar that Ronnie Woods played on one of The Faces TOTP appearances....maybe Ronnie was an Aeromodeller?...….or....maybe Lee Richards was really Keith Richards and he loaned Ronnie his model?......it's late..I'll get my coat...

Here is a rectangular one. A flying carpet. built on in the 50 s F/F. Didn't so much glide power off more of a wobbly mushing descent. Like stable flat stall.

Fats,

there was a 'seat of comfort' flown control line at the (Hullavington) NATS unorthodox event around 1966. There was also a pair of ladies' underwear, inflated to an appropriate shape by the use of glass fibre resin, also flown under line control.

As a shy young reclusive aeromodelling 15 year old teenager, I had no idea why it was called 'Ducted Fanny' until some several years later.......

Nigel,

My kind of modelling, just shows you can have as much fun with the simplest of designs (probably more).

One of my friends from Germany built something that has the same kind feel to it thumbs up Like yours they are fun to fly, though a bit fishy...quite a site to see three Stingrays in the air as wrong as it may be

Some neat work as always there dave. I like the pushrod guides. Definitely a more involved build but almost anything would be longer than mine!

Servo position in mine was set by the pushrods I had to hand - 12" welding filler rods. I guess I could join two together somehow.

I left the nose section deliberately long so I could get balance easily enough. It has worked ok but I would imagine your method removes jusr a little more structure.

Where do you source the carbon rod?
