Windsong (8 min 9 sec)

Watch Dave Banks Skyout a Windsong from a hand launch... I have all 3 of the Dodgson Tapes on separate DVDs,for some reason I cannot upload them to you tube. What you see is a video I made off of my Dell screen and uploaded the clip to you tube...

When I first saw this video I decided to order one. The problem I had was you can not get this little beauty as a BNF... The radio is not compatible with my Spectrum DX6i Transmitter. I do not need another transmitter.So I decided to make my own using there motor drive system. No spare parts available,bah humbug!!!!So enlarged the the the entire model 20% to carry my somewhat heavier 3.5gr servos and Rx... I am waiting for the servos ,and micro gear drive stuff to arrive,so building has come to halt...

I built this little beauty back in 1962. Powered with a TD010. Very short of cash I could only fly it free flight..After several great flights it caught a hat sucking thermal never to be seen again. I have down loaded a set of plans ,but no construction tips. I am not sure how to start the boat type fuselage?? Anybody got a build thread or some advise???

On a trip to Austria I visited a hobby shop and found this West Wings balsa glider kit. After enlarging the wing, and several mods later to establish a good CG, I scaled it up and Voila!!!! It is fast groovey,and looks real in the air.. I fly it Hi Start on the beach,No good slopes around...

I used what I had on hand to equip this little bird.The empty airframe weighs 7grams. I am not familiar with the ultra lite Plantcro type radio gear or the brick systems,but I am sure a much lighter version of the model can be built.I fear the my version will be overpowered too heavy,and difficult to fly????

I built an The EPP Eagle just after it hit the market. It flies like a dream,but it is at my summer camp in Maine.I love to fly it on the beach,the Gulls go bonkers when they see it...I decided to try a smaller light weight version of it so that I would have some thing to fly at beach here in Galveston..This is what I have come up with,and at less than a third of the cost..The ony thing I forgot to show,or mention is that the servos are flat ressesed mounted in the under side of the wing butted up againsy the rear side of the wing spar. I cut them in very carefully so that a clear strip of packing tape holds them firmly in place, and provides easy accesss for adjustments or replacements..
