Pibros tribute

I discovered 20 years ago in a french RC mag the Pibros, a fantastic creation due to Marcel Guwang.
I built one but living in a flat region, elecrified thanks to a speed 400, 7cells Sanyo 500 AR etc... My first ever electric plane. Until then, I only build and fly electric planes.

Some month ago, I discovered a video of a German Modeller who builds and fly a lightened version.
Crazy Horst...

(8 min 15 sec)

I built one in order to fly it along the seasides during my hollydays... and learn this way of flying.
It's a new experience, flying , trying to gain potential energy, spending it until it's time to regain potential energy! and again, and again....
