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 .

Nah, there's no steam involved. What you are looking at there is:

I think the figure that's the killer is No14 on the spec sheet namely the gross weight of 1.8 Kilos it's just too much weight penalty for the size of model it's going to haul around

I think I would take the engine out of the box before I flew Brian. The weight of the engines work out at about 900/1000g at this size where a 2/4 stroke would be 500/650g so not as much diff. as you can carry less fuel.

I do wonder why the spark ignition box of electronics is so big and chunky I'm pretty sure I could knock up a microprocessor driven Capacitor discharge spark generator that takes up not a lot of room....

Fantastic bits of kit not for me though

As for the weight lets remeber the non airobatics filers amoust our great hobby that put half a church roof in the cowel of the spitty, etc etc looks to be perfect for that
