Biting ankles since '53
D'ya know I've been plotting my plane buying and have been looking at the Needle 124 and the Precision but have decided the Needle100 Carbon is ideal for me, and if I want a 3m F3F then second hand is the way to go as I won't be racing.

A classic video of why the Needle 100 is hot:

Needle 100 dynamic 3,2Kg (4 min 15 sec)



So Huma, Rotor, Bird60, Luna, Shredder, Needle 100. Looks balanced for what I want to do. still npt sure where the Mustang will fit in and I do see a Velenta Volcano in my future. Plus the ongoing PSS project that dare not speak it's name…. Proper scratchbuilt this one.

Yep, mighty impressive vid that 1. Makes ME want a Needle, and who cares about a balanced fleet anyway? The Mrs doesn't count BTW...

I'm down next Friday evening so I'm focussed on the build, I havent even done a bench fly yet.
Right, off to Tesco and then back to get some carbon glued in a couple places, a few cut outs made for radio gear and some measuring for flap and aileron horns. I cheated and bought some of T9s pre threaded 2mm stainless pushrods.

Just popped into B&Q ( next to my local Tesco) and found the ballast tube material that I gave just finished off on the Luna tube. Cost about a fiver. The last bit I had I found in a skip.

just back from the Eastbourne F3F
a rather excellent day-out
started quite light conditions & ended up quite windswept
9 rounds - amazing for a BMFA league comp

hearing beer calling...

Edit - Wetherspoons beer festival - some interesting brews (hic...)
