I didn't see this before as I don't usually look at the R/C stuff. That is superb!

Cheers,

Dan.

Ditto what they said! Another lovely model, and it's amazing what you do with Mylar.

... giving a loading of .55g/sq inch.


Impressive statistic Ralph.  And there's no evidence of 'drudgery' in the finished model, which looks fab!

Post a video for us, in due course, of some air action...  Grin

Thanks all for nice comments.  I don't understand why more scale builders don't use mylar covering.  It isn't all that difficult - although you can't print onto it so have to use decals.

Thanks again Lurk, Russ, Scott, John, for nice comments.  Keep building and flying.

Great effort - flying video please. Impressive finish for that weight.

Winter has set in now.  I had intended first flights outdoors but may be some time in March if the Manchester velodrome becomes available again. Video as soon as it can get in the air.
 
As regards weight - the mylar helps. Wink also I have gone for very lightweight brushed motor/radio/servo set up that with 1S battery weighs about 14g. Airframe weight is about 29g that seems reasonable for a Veron design. There are some similar sized models on this site that have brushless motor/full range Rx and independent servos with 2S batteries that weigh twice as much as this model and fly all right.  I was trying to keep the speed down.
