Double Pro-Plan!

This month we have two pull-out Pro-Plans for you to enjoy. First up is Peccadillo, a small 44-inch span delta glider that Keith Thomas designed for tearing around at the slope. For those that prefer to do their flying on the flat then how about building your own Gyroo, a simple multi-task autogyro designed by Richard Harris and which promises lots of fun for beginners and experienced gyro-nuts alike.

On Review

Our reviews this month start with David Ashby, who asks if the colourful gyro equipped Edge 540 from Arrows flies as well as it looks?

Then it is over to Mike Freeman for his take on the GlaStar by XFly Model, a semi scale bush plane loosely based on a full-size American kit build and fitted with huge air wheels!

Olaf Haack wraps our review slots up by showing us how to turn a pile of Depron sheet and 3D printed parts into a realistic looking Jaguar fighter jet, courtesy of the Jetworks plan and 3D files.
