I just thought people might be interested in my sons new Frog Talisman.
He is 13 and built it himself with only guidence from me along the way. Its his first C/L model and has only ever built a cirrus sonic glider previously, with a lot of help from dad.
This model he refused to allow me to have much input on the build and I must say he has done an extremely good job.
I am lookin forwards to teaching him how to fly it.
Model is powered by an os 10Fp

 Wow...he did a fine job...would it take a .19 size engine? He's at the age I got my now 37 year old son flying.. and now he out flys me and does well in contests.
  A job well done and to be proud of.

A .19 would be a bit big for a Talisman. They are only 27" wingspan. I did build one myself a while ago and had an Enya .15 fitted to it. let me tell you it was verrrrry fast and was a lot like a combat model. I fitted a larger elevator on that one, no muffler or undercarriage so it balanced on the wing. If you want something good for your .19 that is a similar model I suggest build a Peacemaker. They will fly plenty fast enough and do any manovour you want.

Otech,

Your boy has done a great job.

I hope you're as proud as you sound.

The 10FP is a perfect match. We have a young bloke at our club, 11yo, who has a Talisman with an ASP 12. Very hot performer. Too fast on 42' lines, I've made him ups some 49' for next week (Hope the wind stops)

What size lines are you going to start him on?

Hi Greg
We will run it on 40 Ft lines and I think it will be ok. I,ve had  several of these models before and they flew well on this length. We will start of with not much elevator and when he gets proficient we will give him some more.
Hope he stays keen.
Fingers crossed
Regards Owen
