Here's my peanut scale Bristol Scout by John Blankenship published in Flying models a long time ago. Flys very well on two strands of 1/8" rubber but only does about 30 seconds. Weighs about 12 grams so it's not very light.

Better quality (and more) photos will be up soon.

Had a look at the plans and love the simplicity.  Any more pics?

Here's more photos as I promised. It's flying pretty good now on 4 strands of 16" rubber braided. Flys around 30 seconds more or less and it looks great in the air. A bigger version 150% would have a lighter wing loading. He designed a SE5a all sheet that would be good enlarged.

I can't wait to see your version.

Thanks for looking,

Tom

Hi Tom

Looks lovely, and thanks also for the rubber/flight info.

My own Scout (a Lee's Hobbies kit) is ridiculously delicate, so its on the back-burner until I've re-built a few core skills and gained some confidence by building 18" plus indoor models.  This is how far I got before frustration and fear took hold...

PS There's a long blog - but fantastically replete with detail - by two engineers and amateur light-plane pilots who rebuilt the Royal Naval Air Service Scout their grandfather flew in 1915:  all as authentically as possible from original drawings and a couple of intact family heirlooms, and as of this summer the aircraft finally flew!  https://bristolscout.wordpress.com/

Looks good Jack. You need to finish it! Your's will be way lighter than mine so it will fly better. I did enlarge my rudder more than the original plan, and a bit more dihedral. Never hurts on a free flight model.

I have one of those kits somewhere.......

Thanks for the link. Very cool airplane. A home built version would be nice:)
