I was at the field today between 14:00 & 15:00 all on my own , good flying too. There is a dead sheep along the fence line towards the gate from the pits, I saw the farmer so reported this to her. I hope no one had plans for a BBQ Smile .

Aeronca Matchstick Monster

A couple of pictures of my latest build, just ready for covering. Model is 1/4 scale Aeronca Champ from a no longer available Precedent kit. Wingspan is 2.6 metres, it truly is a matchstick monster! The photos do not do justice to its sheer matchstickiness

Nice Allan, I agree with Richies comment and would add I wish I had the skill.

At the moment by a cheapo 23cc Chinese petrol I had in the spare engines box but I'll probably find something better for it

Hm.... Half a dozen lengths of catapult elastic? It would probably work!
