Fleet: retired list
Retirees from the fleet:
2x GWS Slowstick learner planes. Use 7 and 8 cell NiMH 1100 cells and stock EPS300 while at RSA, CA USA. Also for SlowStick twin experiment. Lost in trees at RSA and removed without permission
1x GWS Estarter aileron learner plane. Installed RZ400 brushless geared motor for ++ performance, and replaced the stock wing struts with wire struts (and they were needed with the brushless performance!). Scrapped when fleet moved to the UK.
1x Wattage CrazyMax. Crazily weak foam fuselage, used for motor trials (the original Wattage GB broke in a maiden flight). Wing kept for Slow Stick use.
1x Birdworks Bud. Never got it to fly. Kept the wing for future projects...
1x DIY SPAD. Short wingspan + heavy = not a flier. Will probably try again at some point.
1x Stryker C (re-fuselaged once, from a RTF version) - 31Oct09
