Cougar 2000 V2 - Repair in progress So my Cougar is finally complete.I'm running Hitec HS322HD servos for ailerons, rudder and elevator. Due to the small space in funfly aircraft, I'm using a HItec HS81 micro for the throttle. An X6R receiver fits in nicely. I'm using an ASP 36 from Just Engines, complete with a 11x3 prop. All in all it should be just the right plane to do what I want to do. Also, I'm told by MrWestonUK that if my "Rubbishy little engine" can handle it, I should be able to prop hang with ease. I don't know who he thinks he's fooling, The weston eurotech 36TIR is a codeword for Rip - Off and dodgeyness. Two thing that I have as problems are that the throttle is VERY twitchy so expo is needed badly (Rod and Emay). The other thing is the kit didn't come with enough bolts to fit all of the horns down with four each.

This Sunday should be the maiden flight, with the wind at 5mph. The only niggle is my mum has the car, but we will work something out, I should think.

Roll up funfly, I am ready for ya!!!

See you at the field,

Wot 4 foam - e mk2+ 

Presenting the newest edition to my (small) hangar:

The new Wot 4 Foam - E mk2+e


Everything on the old model has been upgraded, including the dodgy hinges, but I still had to put some glass tape on the hinges, as the elevator was starting to go thin - never mind though, it has foam hinges AND regular hinges too!

The new improved foamie, however still has peeling decals, so glue is needed. The screw on the rudder was too small and ineffective, so i swapped it for a bigger one, and uhu por'd it as well for extra strength. I also put some glue on the rear assembly, as I wasn't sure with the one - screw design. It took UNDER the half - hour building time, BUT the decals took 45mins to do, and they aren't the best standard (as someone shall see at the field!).

See you all at the field,

Spacewalker ready to fly! last...


Spacewalker from VQ with OS46 and Hitec digital servos. Easy build.

I fitted some LED navigation lights as well to give it more scale look plus other bits..

Looks amazing in real!, in the end I didn't put the wheel pants as I think they wouldn't agree with the grass runway...shame.

Next sunday weather permitting, maiden flight.

Old Topflite Mustang, P51-B just got hold of this Mustang P51_b


It is a semi scale top flite built model, With a wingspan of 60", It may be the rc-16 red box model, But i cant be sure till i get the plans,


Air up, Spring down robart retracts,,,, Wire type legs though, :(


It has the old type Cockpit style, Not the bubble,


Glassed and spray painted in the old traditional way,


It is at least 9 years old as far as i know,


Saito FA-72, fitted


I have done a few bits and pieces on it to get it flying nicely,

Still need to give the engine a good test, It has good compression and the bearings seem to be smooth running


I have been promised the plans for it with cg, Throws, Exact model etc, I am still awaiting them


Nice and well weathered model,,


Cant wait to give it a go up the field when the weather allows,,

Miles Mohawk Flies with our illustrious chairman on Friday evening as he was eating fish and chips with the family up at Fickleshole.


He sucessfully maidened his Miles Mohawk which he finished some time ago, and here are the pics to prove it :)


The model flew very well, despite both Rogers' and my worry about the models nose heaviness - the tail had to be held on the ground all the time the engine was running to stop it nosing over, and we had to restrain the tail and then release it at full throttle to achieve a takeoff with no digging in.

Unfortunately, the model came in a little fast on landing, and met with the long grass at the opposite end of the runway which resulted in a broken prop, but otherwise a great first flight. Perhaps the undercarriage could be moved forward in the future to help with the nosing problem.


Anyhow, enjoy the pictures.

J3 Piper Cub Clipped Wing my latest creation. It is the J3 Piper Cub clipped wing from the Sig Kit.

traditional Balsa and ply construction with Solaartex covering and finished with Klass Kote epoxy paint in the scheme suggested on the plan . It is a little smaller than the one dave Stephens flew with great skill at the SMAS wing span is 65" and the power is from an ENYA 46 fourstroke . Looking forward to the frirst flight. Thanks to Darren who gave me the kit in the first place as it was surplus to his requirements.

Bristol Fighter. F2B.'s a few pics of a model that began its progress towards completion from a Flair kit in 2001 :shock: I.m hoping to bring her to Club night Thursday, but I don't think she will be completely finished.


On the end of the propellor is a Laser 80. The build was initiated by Dominic, no longer in the Hobby, but shows up now and then to see us,(discovered a longing for motorbikes).
