Some pictures of my past aircraft


Hi All, these pictures are from 1995. The Diabolo is from an original pilot wood kit. The cowl and spats I molded from glass fibre because the original parts were made from ABS. The wing spars and vertical Web were reinforced with UD carbon. I also strengthened the plywood engine mounting. Engine was a 3W60 and was fitted with a smoke system. I flew this aircraft for about 10 years till a radio/ failsafe condition destroyed it. The Diabolo was a great flying aircraft.
The other picture is of my old Safir Plus pattern aircraft. The Plus was because I lengthened the fuselage. The Safir was powered by a Hanno special with an OS pipe. Propellors used were APC 12 X 12 and 12 X 11.

That is Table Mountain in the background.
