Properly this time!

Just completed the maiden flight of my Viva-ish.

47" span, 5lb 4Oz, 4S on a 16x6 today giving me 700W or thereabouts. And it really did fly without a single click of trim! A first for me.

Ted the pilot was bought for a model over 20 years ago. He's been patient...

I wasn't sure whether to post this or not, but just for Fly Boy 3, here's a video of the maiden flight of my latest build.

I happened to have a couple of OS FP10s doing nothing so built a twin plane to accommodate them. It doesn't end well, but it's now fully repaired and I will try again!

Tweeling - the twin

Cheers GDB

Hi all !!

Because it has to stay on the shelf for at least 8 months (PSSA mass build weekend in May 2021),i can't wait to show it !!

It's a N/A F86 sabre used by the Italian aerobatic team in the fifties ''Cavalino Rampante ''.

The 1/10 scale model is build from a balsa/ply short kit for the PSSA 2020 mass build. The model has working speed brakes ,built-in gun ports , working nav-lights ,a releasable canope with working eject seat + shute.

She's glassed and painted with automotive spray cans.Decals are vinyl.

Made the maiden flight of my new TopmodelCZ Fascination on the slope in very light winds. Wingspan 3.6m, weight 3.2Kg, MVVS 4.6 motor.
Around half throttle used to get away then achieved a 40 minute flight using only 25% battery . Very happy with it.

Picked this up today, for £150, has a new SC 90 FS in it, all servos, Life battery, electric retracts, oleos. etc. Said he has flown it 50 times, but looks brand new, even the engine is clean. Ran the engine in, and nothing to do on it, just set it up...

It's a VQ 60 size Hurricane. not the best scheme, but for a sport model ok, and they do fly ok, as I have the .46 winter camo one.

One of the guys at the field remarked he like the look of someone's else's delta. The owner offered to make a couple so I said why not. He then contacted me and asked while he was assembling the other did I want mine built, hey if its no trouble, thanks.

Real ARTF..just added RX, set throws up and 50mm of Velcro, some permanent marker and pilot, job done for less than it costs to fill a very small car up!

My Extra 260 flies very well with NGH GT25 and 17X8 APC.

Miss Camomile could be calming.

dscf4644.jpg

First flights today.

Takes off like a rocket. Flies beautifully

camomile flt 134.jpg

However the rates may be a little higher than the novice would use because it does rudder/elevator rolls which are pretty axial and can be improved.

It will also fly inverted very nicely and all those on a 6X4 APC prop. It tears the sky up on a 2321 2050 motor turning a 7X4 APC prop and a 3s 1300 battery.
