Brilliant news Chris
think mines pretty much flat tip to tip but can be adjusted by lengthening the basebar to fine tune
been looking at mine hanging in the garage and am gonna get round to finishing it very soon

gonna have a good year flying these around

regards,mark

few small modifications ive done to mine to allow shorter flying wires,
being shorter they will be much easier to replace as i wont have to replace a whole length if one side breaks or frays and the one left in place will eliminate the need to setup the parts position again (a-frame position for example) because the other side will be still holding it
makes field repairs a hell of a lot easier

G'day Mark
Now this is what they call "Hot Pink"........I think it should be visible from a good distance.
You will also notice an extra spar.............This wing is for the MK-2 trike......should be flying soon .

HOT PINK RC Microlight (5 min 11 sec)


I took Pinky out for a test today....and was pleasantly surprised.
It took of on the first attempt...and after a few circuits. I landed and strapped on the camera
.The wind was a little on the strong side....but did not cause any great probs.
The bad landing was down to me not giving a blip of power just before touching down. I have several minor changes to make, and I'm sure it will then handle a lot better.
The pink does not come out very good on the video, but it is pretty clear in the sky.
Well Mark .I think that I should be able to put some pic's and info into the build thread soon.
Happy Landings
Chris...............

Hi Paul!
good to see you on here and great news about your grandson!

the mods are going well on the microlight thanks, itll definately be ready for a fly this weekend! just finishing off a few details like side skirts etc.

yeah these aircraft get abit addictive because theyre so different,
ive learnt so much but still got a fair bit to learn about the model version so that tends to keep the interest going.
looking forward to you coming over mate so i can show you around it properly and maybe even get a flight out of it if the weather plays ball! lol
whenevers good for you paul just give me a ring

Chris, you could of warned me to put my sunglasses on before watching the video!
that wing is so bright! lol
looking good though and if you could put some info in the build thread thatd be brilliant, thanks

keep the pics and videos coming mate

heres a few pics of mine so far,
ive just started the double surface on the wing too so will add abit more realism,
cant wait to fly it again!

Gave Pinky a flight today.....the line between the "A" frame and the wing snapped some how the prop grabbed it and wrapped around the shaft pulling the wing back and to one side. Was a bit hairy for a time....but managed to land the beast in one piece.....don't know how...
