With the exception of a few last minute details I'm going to call these two my latest creations. A Frog Wren built from the plan hosted at the houseoffrog.co.uk and a Guillow Lancer which I originally bought for 020 power as detailed in the instructions but I now think an 020 would rip it to bits so went with the rubber version. The Lancer is made from rock hard wood but is not too badly overweight at 30 grams if I include the wheels that are not yet fitted and it appears to balance right off the board (at least without the rubber). The wren was made from scrap balsa but is also surprisingly light considering I didn't monitor the balsa I used at all. It weighs in at 28.3 grams but will need a bit of nose weight to balance. I'm quite pleased. All markings are cut from Esaki tissue.

Nice Wren and Lancer!  Put a 7" Peck prop with two loops of 1/8th (1.5x) and leave off the LG.  On 600 turns it'll go up nicely - on 90% turns, it'll go like a rocket!

All right, one more knocked out from my 'Get 'em done' bunch. A Scientific Skymaster. I've wanted to build one of these since I saw the magazine ads for it back in the sixties. Weight without rubber is 48.5 grams.
I plan to power it with a double loop of 3/16" for a start and see how that goes.

I'll be watching this because I saw the same ads way back then.

Very soon I plan to have the Wanderer finished and photo's taken for this exciting group.

Stay in the hunt for the Get 'e  done bunch".

Well, well, well, look who finally has something to post, many thanks to Ratz for keeping me in line! I've kind of given up building for myself and instead I'm having a blast building for my Fetcher-mites. I've had a pretty productive weekend, though some of these I've actually had done for a little while. I got the Sky Bird and the little Sky Ace from the Retro RC guys at the Weak Signals show in Toledo. Nice guys by the way who also have links to this site on their web page! I don't have any flights with the Sky Bird yet as it's been crunched 3 times already by overly excited pilots before ever getting into the air. The little Sky Ace is still being test flown before we commit to the cat launch but it looks pretty good so far. The others are still in the painting & finishing stage. The F-100 shows a pretty good glide already but the F-4 needs a bunch of ironing out. And the little Russian jet is one of the soda straw jets - kind of a novelty thing, pretty hard to get the little thing dialed in so my little guys can launch it without dorking in. My 5yr old just likes zooming through the house with the jets, making jet noises - he could care less about cat launching them actually! The "Owen" is a G-15 hand launch glider by Chuck Wenlock reduced to 12" and modified slightly for Roughneck handling. That and a full size G-15 are actually great fliers and the boys LOVE them!

Josh,

Great job on the catajets....I understand about the young-uns, my fetchermites love flying the catajets at the park...
You might want to check out the Catajets section here on the Catapult Launched Gliders section: http://www.hippocketaeronautics.com/hpa_forum/index.php/topic,3985.390.html  Check out the previous posts and also the plans in the Builder's Plan Gallery....

Happy Landings,

Tom

Here are some pics of the Guillows 600 series Cessna.
Since my front yard is my 'flying field', I need a few planes on the shelf that I can grab and fly.
They usually only last one season, and the next season I build another. They get pretty beat up.
As many as I have built, I still have fun doing them.
This one is trimmed and ready. 25 grams AUW.
I can't wait. Those calm summer evenings are almost here Cheesy.

Tross,
I agree with Tom. Very nice job on the covering/color choice. I wouldn't have thought it was a GUILLOWS kit!
Is the coloring scheme something you thought up or is it Modeled after a full size aircraft? Either way, it looks great!

Thanks guys,

Dave, the color pattern I got from a pic. It's just a waterslide decal printed on inkjet.
Don, I need to re-think the front yard flyer comment Grin
My yard won't hold this one....yet.
These are the flights with a 9 inch loop of 3/16"
The first is 650 winds....too much. For a bit, I thought I was flying outdoor sport.
I jumped up out of my hands in a upward spiral. You'll hear me say "OH Crap"

The second was 525 winds with a little more down thrust. A little better.
I'll add some right thrust later, but for now...This plane is nuts.
Both of these flights are in the 25 second range.

This is a peanut Piper 140.
Weight is 9 grams with out rubber.
This is the second design,.... using keel and former type construction.
The first was a 'scratch builder' type design with flat sides, formers top and bottom.
