Right Tim - now I remember - didn't Dave do the Sorceress? Good luck with life, flying and your indoor efforts Tim.

Sorry ZK - I think it was built basically over a 3-view. I would have drawn up the formers...  but long lost I think.

On the 40 minute drive home from Barkston Heath, there is one 100 yard section where the sky is obscured by trees. At the precise moment we entered it, there was an almighty roar directly overhead and we caught the briefest glimpse of the Lancaster and Hurricane passing overhead. I was vexed.

What a pity, but the sound allone must have been gorgeous.

Today thunderstorms have been forecasted for the evening. Somehow it didn't happen... Therefore I packed some planes and went to the field for some flying.
Dead calm air and some nice light was waiting for me.

Its the smaller Se5 (18" Spanwith) from Mike Midkiff (Aerographics Kit). It is very reliable... just take it from the shelf and let it fly...

FLYACE1964, yes, its a peanut size Pitts special. I had quite some problems with trimming this beast. But I have new hope now. Just got a new idea what I could try to improve the flights of it. It's not the problem of the plane, its more my poor trimming ability Roll Eyes
Its from this plan https://outerzone.co.uk/plan_details.asp?ID=9864

Don, thanks but at the moment I am flying my old models most of the time. My building slowed down due to the increased work load at the office....  Sad I hope to build more in the future again, in the meantime you have to live with my old planes Wink

Jon, build it, you won't be disappointed!

 Grin the grandkids just left after a fun day's lunch and flying
we flew buzzard jr a high wing stick model and it did tight circles. one flight put it on my lower roof and my son was able to rescue it.
then we flew sparky and it's either under powered or not generating enough lift because it did a powered glide to the ground
j bell p40  got a couple of flights in before the motor peg holder broke.
orange crush flew well, once into the trees and onto my upper roof. we had to go fisjhing for that one.

all in all a fun day
