This is Matthew Lloyd's WT off a secret slope in Shropshire.
 
 

These are from the club flickr account and a few more can be found here
 
I flew Matthew's and I loved it. I wasn't much good but how much fun is that? 
 
My WT? Well it flew (but not by me) but due to a slight misreading of the instructions, it had a slight handling issue. It wanted to inside loop . Fixed it now and desperate to get out again. Great little model, fun day.
 
More of the same please!

No a lot more stupid. I aligned the Elevons with the profile of the top wing section, not the bottom. Meaning it needed almost full up elevator to fly level. Ho Hum, lesson learned. Fixed now, and I'm good to go next week!

I shall mostly be sacrificing burned balsa offerings to the God Of Westerlies

Hey guys i've just had a wildthing for my birthday, and as soon as the kids will leave me alone i'll be ripping up the skies with it.
Any vices? or will it fly just like any other foamie?
Cheers.
