I've had various issues recently that have meant I have missed a lot of potential flying sessions.
As a result I have been building and building.
I started to look at what I'd made and decided to challenge myself to add a bit of interest.
My challenge is to record a time for all TWELVE categories at the 2019 UK Nationals in September.
This means I need to build all 12 planes.

LPP
F1L
35cm
G.C
F1R
LRS
Osprey/4g LE
No-Cal
F1N
Catapult
F1D
F1M

So far I have 10.5.
Ten finished and ready and one not quite covered yet.
The only thing missing is one of the monstrous F1M's....

I shall post pics Smiley

Good luck with your plan and no chatting when you should be flying. You will need a holiday after.

The UK Nats are reasonably informal when it comes to class slots.
Only the gliders have a special time for flying and that is only so the rest of us can take shelter.
The hall is split in half for the light weights and the heavy weights to have their own areas.

I have been plotting my three day flying schedule.
It focuses on chucking my worst planes up first to score a time and then relaxing and working on those that I have an interest in increasing the performance.

Finished the Eindecker E.III No-Cal apart from some crosses and colouring in the pilot.
All paint work for this week.

Despite a massive lump of blutak on the nose it glides nicely across the lounge.
I have to make the wheels rotate as the undercarriage kept snapping off on carpet landings.
Comes in at over 6g!

I will finish the Gyminnie Cricket tonight and then I have to ponder the F1M.
I'm vacillating on this plane, it seems a little large and hefty..

F1M is about the same size as LPP, but fuz can be longer. Actually you can fly your LPP also as F1M, just limit the rubber to 1,5g.

I like it - that sounds like a plan!!
I have two LPPs, so I can fiddle with a longer motorstick and boom on one.
Or just swap the flying surfaces and make a new prop.
Yes.

Thanks!
