Thanks for the link.
I'll see if my brother can either repair or fancies cutting some cores for me. The UK seller of the SP only lists fuses as spares

Got my Speedo wing mended. Removed the film underneath and my brother reckoned it looked like a scarf joint on the le top sheeting had separated, certainly a diagonal split. I flooded the joint with thin CA and stuffed the le cavity with EPP foam. All recovered but will need to balance the wings as one is heavier now

Took the SP for a spin today in gusts over 25 mph. No problems.
Speedo Pro 2 RC glider (3 min 53 sec)

Hope you enjoy the music
More impressive was the way that my 199g 26"/660mm w/span MPX Mini Solius coped with the conditions

Stab needed

Would anyone happen to have a spare Speedo 1.2 stab? I recently bought an estate nib speedo but just noticed no stab. Of course because I bought a new one I finally threw out all my wrecks, including 2 or 3 stabs

Anyway if someone has a new or used stab they'd be willing to give, sell or trade for a canopy, please contact me.

Never mind, I just located one

Well, I don't expect much activity here from now on as the main source of the model, R2 Hobbies, have closed "This is a demo store. Any orders placed through this store will not be honored or fulfilled."
Took mine out for session on Monday in variable conditions which it handled well

Oh Nooooo!!!

Lucky I have a spare one in the shed.
That is not a good thing.

Oh well.. well done on your flight.

I wonder if the Hobby King Speedo ripoff is as good as the original.

Going by personal past experience, it's possibly from the same factory but with less QC.
If you read the comments on the HK site (follow the link above) you'll see what I mean.

Yes... so I have read.
Bit of a worry.

On a positive note..there is a guy on these forums who does foam core wings for the Speedo.

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2358265

All you need is someone who has a mold of the fuselage and away you go.

Mmmmm foam core goodness!!!

Lots of the R2 Hobbies gliders, including the Raptor and Speedo Pro are manufactured by Oshmens Hobbies. This is a UK source for some of their models

Thanks.. but they won't post to Australia.

Oh well... I might have to get my finger out and learn how to make a mold off the new one in the shed.
