I can confirm Denis' post above. The nylon bolts shear and the struts (which only need to worki in compression) do not hinder the lower wings departure from the situation.

The upper wing is bolted on with M4 sized machine screws and will likely need the ply lugs gluing back in, if the ground attempts to forcibly detach the wing.

I learned all of this, immediately after learning its dislike of low speed manhandling, during a landing approach.

The 40 sized one will be as docile as any model you'll find, I think. It has gobs of wing area and turns out lightly loaded even up to around 8lbs. Denis I believe has one of the larger ones.

The 25 is simply a heavy model for its size, with all the attendant characteristics thereof. If I scratch built on I think it would come out a pound lighter. But with kit wood... Anyway, keep it moving and its golden. Start jabbing in rudder corrections with the nose held high and no power and it'll drop a wing, which should have been no surprise to me. The trick to landing the small one is not to slow it up like a slick low winger, but to fly it in on 25/30% right up to threshold and then cut.

In truth it is a nice design and fun to fly, is a good aerobat, and looks great in the air. I would love a 40 sized one (which I think, is really a 60 sized air frame) - hence why I have a 40 size bipe project next in my build queue.

Not a new model, not even mine - rescued from a skip at Don Valley, with a load of good servos and other bits. So repaired and converted the Agritug to IC , the engine was £3 from a Swap Meet, so it costed £3, plus £14 for the Hitec 2.4 rx.

Bored, due to weather, so getting some old wrecks back in the air again, just done a Wonder 60 size.

Just finished MY Super 60. As it is sunny I shot out in the road and took some pictures

Felt like doing a nice colour scheme.Well, I like it!!

the "Phantom Puddy Tat" on the fin used to be the 41 squadron ground crew unofficial badge. most cars had it on the windscreen in dayglo

.OS .40 Surpass provides the urge. Customised with 5" tundra wheels. I might fly it in front of the house when the field is stubble.

I did consider flaps but decided not to bother.

Love the big fat danglies Peter but you just know you should have fitted barn door flaps!

Very patriotic Peter, I like it. That reminds me, I must build the Ben Buckle Super Sixty kit that is currently languishing in my loft- as soon as my long awaited house move comes to fruition...

I was going to build it RET as per the original but everyone seems to fit ailerons (with reduced dihedral) so perhaps I should do the same. A 40 Surpass eh? Would an OS52 be too much for a SS?

I fly mine on an ASP 30 four stroke, need to be careful on take off but plenty of power once in the air. Original had a 40 two stroke in it and felt it was over powered. cool  It's RET with the dihedral.

I flew one many years ago on a Saito 30 that I had brought in from teh USA before they were available here. It was very aerobatic. The club that I was in at the time used to fit .60 two strokes in them.Saw at least one shed its wing.

They could never grasp that mine was on a mere .30FS

I think the .40 FS should be ideal but the .52 FS would be fgine.

I believe that the AM25 2.5cc diesel was the normally chosen power source for these when they first appeared. Some went for the 35.

You obviously live on a very quiet lane, Peter (actually in Norfolk they actually have signs 'Quiet Lane' ). Our lane is a dead end and unsurfaced mostly but attracts a lot of horses and the 4WD vehicles belong to the (mostly) young women who ride them so I would have to be careful using it as photographic venue.

Certainly a very bold scheme and with those giant wheels it should cope easily with a bit of stubble come August. I'm not sure about the cat's rear end, though although definitely not being a cat lover I should appreciate it and respond in kind. It was a wayward cat that indirectly got me aeromodelling when it fetched me off my bike and changed my life dramatically.
