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 .

I remember a friend of mine had one powered by an OS 40 FSR on a pipe Very Happy . Its end came one day when he did a long WOT shallow dive. As the plane past us at head hight a loud rasping noise, which grew in intensity then abruptly stoped, was heard (elevator flutter) Crying or Very sad . It then hit the ground and spread the remains in a line for many 10's of feet. Absolutely nothing, and I mean nothing, was reuseable Sad . But, it was good while it lasted Twisted Evil .

No part of the radio at all. Even the wheels were u/s. As I said nothing any good.

I owned both a Bullet and a Tornado which was a very good F3A ship in its day. Might even buy one again.
