Fellow club member MIck King brought his new The OHmen to the field today. He enlarged the plan by 130%.

The model flew beautifully and was as aerobatic as the original. Mick was worried about possible lack of power. He has a 100 amp motor in it. It has more than enough power because the wing loading is so low.

Picture of my Tony Nijhuis 72 inch MK V Spitfire. I built this last year and it has remained in my garage ever since. Powered by an ASP 120 FS. I lacked the confidence to fly it as our strip is not that long and I thought there would be an issue with the landing speed being a bit high even with flaps. Last week a club member who is a very capable flyer took it for its first flight. It flew beautifully but sure enough landing was a problem. Slowing it down to try and get it on our strip resulted in damage to the retracts. I am repairing them now, but until I get the use of a longer strip it will either stay in my garage or be sold. I will fit the cannons though.

I fancy on of these, it is a shame that VQ have the main UC wheels the wrong way on the legs.

Thanks Cymaz, not taken by me, one our semi official photographer snapped thinking it wouldn't be any good. Your right about the tailwheel plus the aileron linkage are a give away, but it flew and flew well.

J D 8 thought about modifying wheels when I built it, but really bit of a faff plus the build took a lot longer anyway with three flaps plus dive brakes to modify.

Got this cheap. spares/repairs, but brand new in box. 1300 2s lipo is ok, so for the other model. all works, but the internal camera battery is dead - works when on usb and films. so going to fit a new lipo inside the camera.

Also, the tx is Mode 1. I might use it to train myself to fly Mode 1, be the ideal model. Thought it was on DSM2/X but doesn't bind with any Spektrum TX, must be on a different protocol, anyone know which?
