Dave,
     Thanks, I just recieved your email with the Yelloise plans. The server here was down, after viewing all of the zip I noticed that it is a Manhattan class, my first.  Grin

In case someone wants to dye indoor covering film yellow for their Yeloise Manhattan, I posted my method for dyeing "Mylar" indoor film in the Written Articles in the Builders' Plan Gallery. I have used Rit Scarlet 5 and Rit Royal Blue successfully but have never tried a yellow Rit dye for film.

Probably schnellwilli or someone from Micro-X who dyed condenser paper caused me to try dyeing indoor film about 15-20 years ago. Thanks to whomever it was.

Just to settle one tiny point; I have Williams book, dated 1981, it has photographs of the 'Yeloise' but no plan.

Referring back to Schnellwilli's comment in #12, it seems like we should be promoting these as kinetic art form in the museums.  The best of stick and tissue FF are certainly works of art.

Hi all. The pic of Yeloise that was posted is mine! I am normally a scale man but one look at the plan meant that I had to build it. I didn't strive for ultimate lightness as I wanted a model for sport flying that would also survive my inept handling. Came out at bang on 7g. There is footage of a trimming flight on YouTube; look for "Dan Mellor Yeloise" if interested...

Dave,
     Thanks for the video, I love the eyes and she flew very well just for a trim flight. Wow what a first flight!

The eyes were just circles of black tissue cut with a compass cutter. Several attempts at grafting cellophane windows into the condenser paper covering as per the original almost drove me insane. Lovely flier but needs a lot of tail tilt to get the turning circle sorted out. Just bear that in mind and you will have a ball!

Might it be possible to post that plan, and maybe other Manhattans, to the gallery?

I used to fly the event with Ron Williams and a lot of other greats at CIMAS (Columbia (University) Indoor Model Aircraft Society in Lowe Memorial rotunda - a Class III Site), and sponsored The Bill Tyler Cup for the event, back in the late 1980's.

I even had a fairly interesting design that employed a rolled balsa tail boom, and triangular transitions afore and abaft the cabin box at the time.

If more plans appear in the gallery, I'll make a stab at redrawing mine and adding it there, too.

Thanks Chris,

I am very tempted to build the model as it is full of character.

How small a circle can a Manhattan be forced into?   I have never built one but the size and weight is appealing.


Once a month our club has access to a small church hall which is little bigger than a badminton court, but useful if the fan heaters have been turned off.

I have built Sainte class models which fly well in the space.   Aeromodeller ran a feature on the Sainte class some years ago, and we had found three plans by Emmanuel Fillon.   Fillon's "Big Bosom" proved to be a great model in a small space, especially if built to the original (?) rule with no minimum weight.

BMFA adopted a 2gm minimum weight around 1990 and flying at Cardington where a big motor improved time, I built a Fillon inspired model with bigger fuselage cross section at nose and motor peg - good for 6:28 but failing to fully capitalise on the high ceiling.

It is a shame Sainte class failed to catch on in the UK - I don't think the BMFA rules are even currently listed in 2019.

It would give good competition in a restricted space, while still looking more like an aeroplane than EZB or F1D, and with a rigid fuselage they behave more like a indoor scale model.
