Got a phone call asking if I would be interested to film Supermans maiden flight so on my bike quick to the field I went to tie up with Trev who was ready to see if he could fly...

Thanks for your kind comment - I do try to keep things bubbling along on the club blog with a good number of videos and we get regular hits from all over the world now. I have just made an investment in a new new camera which was a big step - Did a review on it because its not been released yet in the UK (on my site) and the results with this camera are far better as you can see.

Just my rotten upload speed that kills me off as it takes all night to upload to YouTube. The UK is so far behind on internet speeds we are in the stone age... Sorry I have gone on too much.

Brilliant, how is it to fly? That'd cause quite a stir at our club....

It was Trevs model but it flew very well and he threw it around all over the sky. Suspect its more fragile to transport and more unforgiving but as long as you dont catch it on anything when your transporting it you would be fine. The ESC cut out at the end of the flight which was why it went in but ther was NO damage at all to the model and only the battery pack became detached - Trev builds them well...

Regards Peter

Just had an email from Trev saying where the plans are from if any oy you out there want to try to make this as a project here is what Trev sent to me = Thanks! I cant take credit for the design though. Plans were from rcsuperhero .

Going to look fantastic when its painted up...

Here in NZ there is a guy who has built a witch on a broomstick...I haven't seen her flying but I have seen photos of her in flight. Apparently his wife was the model for the witch. Her cape provides a kind of Rogallo wing.

regards

No Plans available at the moment as they are working on other projects which are taking up all there time. Pity.

I'll just have to design my own....

Hi John.

Got one old witch in our club as well - I also posted it on this forum video channel so if you look back a bit you will see her fly - Hard witch to fly and also not easy to land...

Regards Peter

FLYING WITCH -Hi John - looked up the video for this which you may enjoy.
Just in case it wont link it name is "Flying Witch of Sheppey" so you should be able to tie - try on here as well should find it as it was only done in July 2011.
Regards Peter

Shame about the plans but perhaps you could create something new - lots of scope but good luck either way - Peter
