Two new-to-me models flown today, a nicely built electric power Junior 60 and an E-Flite Hurricane which flies better than it's weight would lead you to expect.

638f7192-07ca-46aa-aa61-143a46892ce4.jpegHere is my just finished Westwings Skylark glider . I built it with a tow hook, so it can be launched with piloting by club mates of my Wot 4XL tow plane181e41b5-4940-4566-b749-16c335deeae6.jpeg. The kit instructions were a bit vague on the wing joiner and I decided to build the wing as a one piece and I’m pleased I did as it saves a lot of fiddling around plus I think it might be stronger 😊

Ok so this is not my model and you're all sick to the back teeth with me going on about La Coupe Des Barons but I saw this model at the competition and I thought you might be interested in seeing it especially as the builders were so young. The lad on the left flew it and it was one of the 15 or 20 models which were still serviceable after the end of the event.

Thanks.

I retained much of the original structure but used a bit of ply and carbon to provide some strength in the aft cabin frame. The model has had a tortured existence with engine issues resulting in deadstick arrivals first three flights then a forgotten servo horn screw in an aileron servo caused a significant crash requiring substantial rebuild. Still flying though.

You are not alone. Once flew a brand new F3A model four times then found the aileron servo arm screw on the workbench. Got away with it. Now check them all before any flying session.

Hi all,

After more than 2.5 years, it's done and the maiden is expected to occur in the next couple of weeks. I'll keep you posted and/or check the Vector thread.

Regards,

Paulo

Hello Dad_flyer,

It's called Vector. A model by Pete Collins published in RCM&E of March 2016. I agree it's a very unusual shape, that's why I chose it to build! Search in this site for threads and albums under 'Vector' and you'll find more information about the model.

Regards,

PP

Thank you! I'll check whether it really helps with orientation in the air.
