3 new models from Weston Park, the first is another Wot 4, but gone mad and fitted a Saito 80 which I bought new from Teeside Swap meet a few weeks ago for £40. Engine is starting to run in now...

Not my latest model, but it hasn't flown yet.

Vic Smeed's Tumbletot was a free plan, for a Kalper 3.2cc engine. I belive it was Vic's last but one design.

I scaled it UP for my Boddo Mills 0.5 R/C engine.

Maiden is due shortly.

No, the Wot had been on public sale for a while, about 2 hours later I saw it and snapped it up. No-one else did...

Its from the "Flying Scale Models" plan by Paul Tupker

44" Semi-Scale Gloster Meteor IV

2 x 70mm EDF running on a 4S 5000mah Lipo

Seems to be fully aerobatic (though I am nervous of the wing joiners between the inner and out wing panels where the fan ducts are!)

Aileron, throttle and Elevator controls only

I deviated from the plan in a couple of ways...

1) Elevator Servo is a thin wing servo embedded in the horizontal stabiliser 

2) I had two or three goes at the wing - the plan says to build a centre section and two outer panels then join them with the Fan formers as dihedral braces - of course this means you cant set the wing up on a flat surface as the lower portion of the fan former hold it up in the air!

In the end I gave up that idea and just built the wing in two halves (ignoring the fan formers) - set the wing up, then added the formers afterwards and cut away the portion of the wing structure afterwards
