My first tow on day one at the Omarama Model Glider Tow in April

Three days of flying I did two , because on my last flight the model spun a bit after landing from hitting a bit of taller grass and stripped the Rudder servo.

All up a good weekend

A hand built 2 meter fiberglass model ,and being towed behind a twin cylinder I think 100 cc .

More power than needed ,as mine was the smallest plane there.

Left my 4 meter Slingby T31 at home

REC 0005 (3 min 33 sec)

All ways loved the older models and had a couple of Frog control line kits as a kid. Decided it was time to build another, now much later in life. Found the frog model site, then outer zone had the 20in plan of the Junior Glider...Thats me I want one.

I enlarged mine 200% Giving a w/s of 40in close to a meter.

About 3 weeks of building and ready to cover now.

Be cause it was larger I doubled the number of ribs, Added extra fuse frames and laminated the tail feathers instead of sheet

Bare frame 55gms. Servos 2.5 each. 1s 350mah battery
