Looking Excellent, Don. You are an "artiste". Wish I had the time to carry on building my old Dragon Airliner (and repairing existing aircraft) but everything is at a standstill till I get my house on the market and move (Decorating, clearing junk etc)! :(

I've heard it said that moving house is the second most stressful thing one can do. I think that divorce was the first.

 

I wonder where building from Mick Reeves drawings comes in the scheme of things?

 

Good luck Terry! :wink: See you at the Hop Farm.

Well - It's happened!

 

The Bleriot has been chucked into the air and survived. Here's some pictures. But not necessarily in the right order :? A video of the event is in preparation and a link will be posted here when uploaded onto YouTube.

 

Stats. 1.3 scale - Laser 360V - SPEKTRUM DX7 radio - CG is 3" behind the recommended position but better with 32ozs. of fuel up front. :wink:

 

Place: Hastings strip. Wind 8mph straight down 21. Photos by Brian Bristow. Solo slot by kind permission of the Committee. Valuable support from Tony Nijhuis, senior Inspector and Examiner LMA.

A big Thank You to those who gave a helping hand at the two recent meetings at Old Warden and at Bickley. (You know who you are!) :)

 

The Bleriot was successful at both events and here is a pic of the Bickley meeting. I forgot my camera for O.W. :roll:

Here's something for the winter evenings - a video of the Bleriot flying it's way to Best Scale Award.

It was windy - very!
