That's really nice!

Welcome to RCGroups and the Scale forum! I believe you will find a wonderful bunch of folk here who enjoy scale electric planes, and who will be more than happy to share knowledge with like-minded modelers! The collection of experience is vast and varied, and we all enjoy learning new things from others as well as seeing the builds come together.

By any chance, have you any photos of the Sipa under construction, or any in-flight shots?

James

Hi Deuce ,

Thank you ,

Yes i have many Pictures and a video .

This model flies very well and has under gone some improvements along the way .
I found Some 3 view pictures on the webb along with many photos and decided to give it a go , also found a jetex plan of the model which proved to be inaccurate for my liking .
After studying many photos and rebuilding i believe i now have a very good likeness to the real Sipa 200 , So here we go.

Ok now the body has been completed its time to glass it .
It adds a little extra strength and gives a good surface to paint
