And would the SL work for FPV?

Would love another Sonic Liner - mine is getting a little flappy at high speeds. Has been rekitted (several more pieces than it actually came in) twice and repaired. Thinking about fiberglassing and WBPU to refurbish it.

Even had the motors mixed to the rudder channel at one time - pull vertical and tumble into a flat spin.

Gotta be the Twinjet. Had two of them back in the day. One now, possibly upscaled by about 50%, given how cheap brushless motors and esc's are now would be awesome.

Used to love putting Multiplex kits together, was like lego for grown ups

Here's that chap.
From Hungary, hungry for that SL
Must thank FlyingKiwi22 for spotting the unassembled kit on ebay, letting me know immediately, and also picking it up from the seller when I won the bidding.
When it arrives and I start building it, will post about how things are going.
Actually I have already SketchedUp a paint scheme and will definitely use that.

i dont understand why multiplex hasnt started reproducing the sonic-liner!! ive actually sent them a request, asking them to reproduce it. we all should send them requests for the sonic-liner. such a beautifull model. does anyone here want to sell one to me? ive been wanting one ever since i first saw it. ive had 3 funjets, 1 x-830, and its my absolute favorite plane!

Thank you - I finally got to maiden her today:


The maiden went very well, but it began getting dark, so I took it easy.

Unfortunately, my camera man was hung over, so video isn't the best:
