2009 -1 - Mostly Bison!
The first 6 months of 2009 were a frantic bid to build, fly, photograph and describe my AVRO 555 'Bison' for the build-off 3. The effort paid off and against stiff competition, won My prize for that effort was my choice of a Balsa USA 1/4 scale model. I selected their SPAD 13 kit - very ambitious for me and a great challenge to electrify. But more of that later.
With the Bison completed, I agreed to do another prototype build for Peter Rake - the little Powell PH-2 racer from 1925. It was a fun build and although 1/5 scale had a span of only 37". With a Park 480 motor, she is a great performer and is now part of my regular flying squadron.
