Having read about competitions planned on both sides of the pond to celebrate / commemorate the famous Cranfield 1960 WC FAI FF Power Fly Off  I got to thinking about building one of the 5 winning models. However, not having been an IC power flyer for many years and being much more interested in the electric classes I decided, following discussion with D/T and Pee Tee of this parish, that, allowing for the fact that an electric powered full size model would not be accepted by the contest organiser, I would at least enter into the spirit of the event and commemorate by building an E36 version of the Lucky Lindy. I started building it a couple of weeks ago and it is now just about ready for covering as oer the attached picture. Power will be provided by an EMax 2306 motor.

Well done Ray! Don and I look forward to seeing it fully covered on Tuesday.

Bill, are you looking for an E36 sized Gloworm, or do you want a full sized version? Simon Dixon is arranging a Cranfield Classic comp for the Nats, and small 3 views were in FFN a couple of months ago.

Hi Peter
No, the original. I have an ED Racer!

Bill,
John Sheppard is on Facebook. He might still have a plan. A longshot but you never know. He's still got the Champs winning model!

Bill,
Another, perhaps more sensible, thought. Chris Redrup has a  full  size Gloworm. I don't know whether he obtained a full size plan or whether he drew it up from the 3 view. Maybe worth asking him.

John Sheppard can supply copies of the Gloworm plan-as noted earlier in this thread, he can be found on facebook.

Thanks all for the leads on a plan. I didn't know about this event and the May Nats may be a bit too soon to get something done (yes, I know John Sheppard built his in six weeks!) but I shall follow one of the many suggestions up

Ah Ray, that’s quick building and clearly why you weren’t at Beaulieu yesterday, suffering the afternoon’s cold wind and rain. What’s the favoured power train for E36 these days?

Peter, I don't know Chris Redrup or Simon Dixon and don't do Face book. Who was the chap who ran the original Classic about ten years ago? He had all the plans

Bill, I'll let you have Chris Redcap's email by PM, he's our chairman since John Thompson's "farewell" and you'll recognise him as he came 2nd in last year's Coupe de Brum (in F1G).

Thanks Peter. I know the names and faces; the difficulty is putting them together!

Hi

JimArmott in Scotland ran the first ones.  You're talking about my Padawan teacher AllanBrown who ran the comp at the FF Nats.  If you're looking for plans I can probably help or he certainly can.

Is it the Glowworm your after?  Have you got a decent motor to put in it?

PS I told SimnDixon to put something on HPA but obviously he knows best ... nee luck

You might want to look at the Number18 with its autorudder ... easier to trim ... it's what I'll be flying if I can be bothered to go.  Better not end up in some gubbins DT flyoff rubbish or I'll be well annoyed

Thanks Mick - yes I remember now, Allan Brown
Yes it is (Gloworm) and no I haven't but an ED Racer will be as much as I can handle! My previous forays into power duration involved going up slowly and coming down quickly.

I'll PM you AllanBs mail ... I'm sure he'll be happy to help.  Him and JimA are the de facto authorities on the Cranfield Classic models ... except those that were actually there.  And tap him up for how to trim them ... it's a lot more straightforward than you think.  Non floaty glide when heaved, full power launches and a quick DT function and you are on the way.

I'll PM ...
