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 .

Trying to drum up some enthusiasm recently, Mark and i began building a depron jet each. with the aim of some winter dogfights. mark has a hawk on the board and im going for an su47. both to be powerd by brushless motors and lipos.

Hopefully we will get a few more on the go so get down to B&Q get some depron and get buildin!!!! Bell motors r fine on these so no excuses over expensive gear either.

Top that off with a pile of free plans at www.parkjets.com

The more the merrier

Me too.... but you will have to build it for me Leigh as it will take me a year at my rate and I am already behind with about 4 un-started /part done models now!
Should take you about an hour by all accounts Shocked

"Can you tell what it is yet?"

Looks good though... I'm going to build the Venom this weekend. The weather looks like poo!

hers some more. they really are easy to build mark was doin good with his (so they must be easy) he had some tight bends to get round tho, a bit of sanding and scoring and all was well. while mine has a few more parts thers very little bending so far.

Nice one. 50" is a bit on the large side I reckon! I'll download the plans today, and get a set printed at work. I'm sat here looking at a little GWS EDF40 ducted fan unit, and wondering Smile Smile

Just wondering, are you going to paint these foam creations? What paint do you use?

yes im planning on painting mine up and im sure young Leigh will be doing the same, any foam safe paint will sufice, leigh uses acrilyc paint in his airbrush to good results and we also discovered that the rattle cans for spraying lexan r/c car body shells works really well on depron so thats what i`ll be using

I think Mark's hawk will be known from hereon as: LadyHawk...

Now, where is the "rolling around the floor laughing" smiley when you need it Smile

My Venom is going to have a tasty Winter Camo colour scheme I think!
