Post your 1/2A pics


Not a very original title, but someone had to start it.

I understood 1/2A to be 049 power, but I'm pleased to see it expanded to include the 2.5cc size.

This model is my all-time favourite F/F sport flying model. The photo is a scan from a colour transparency.

It's called Saracen, and was an 'Aeromodeller' free plan in the 1960s. Powered by a Cox Golden Bee, I wore the first engine out after losing the model and getting it returned. Very stable, and easy to trim.

The 1/2A Planes should be a total hit!

This is Little Mo - an RCM&E free plan from yonks ago.

25" span Cox .049, 25% nitro fuel, battery clip, finger stall, transmitter and five minutes of sheer abject terror that feels more like five hours. Then silence and a beautifully smooth glide to land at your feet (or into the side of the oildrum rubbish bin one time- Little Mo is tough).

Please excuse the photo quality. New camera and it is quite a bit smarter than me

ACE extra230. Norvel .074. 4ch FMA micro servos. Batman head for a pilot(incorrect scale). AUW 19oz. Plane is built real well, but I'm a real crappy flier. Gonna save this one for when I get good at flying. And at which point I want to transfer the "guts" over to something like a tantrum or similar(yeah, theres a response to electric to nitro conversion but give me a few years!).

I thought it looked rather nice, too.

'Aeromodeller' had a published f/f plan for a clipped wing Spitfire which was around that size. I think I'll look it up again and try conversion to electric.

1/12 spitfire plans


Hi there is no plans as such, it was taken from a 3 view drawing and cut out of foam, its an old design and has a pretty boxy fuz in comparison to the latest spits we are knocking out. J

Might have some blocks already cut somwhere have to have a look around J
