Uram, I'll try but I'm usually alone when I fly and the little on the go camera I have has such a wide angle lens on it that it makes everything look so tiny. If I have to film and fly at the same time something is gonna get broken. Maybe my 6 year old grandson can take a few shots.

Dnt'worry Remitt,
it was just a suggestion .
I like to see the models of the other guys on Rc news forum . The posts or plans are not so atractive for me.
I like much an old timer in the sky at sun set!
that is a beauty ;

regards

Hi Bruce !

I am starting a quick& Dirty Q-Tee build. Is it Vintage enough to join the SFV ?

Best regards,

'Douglas' to his friends.
Good morning, Bruce...

I'd like to declare 'Finished, yet to fly' for my Kirby Motor Tutor Build (found here...). Still a couple of details left, but she's 'flyable', and the sun was out for photos, so ...



Thanks for managing this Challenge. For the next one, please make '3-piece Chuck Gliders' an option. Pretty please..?

Outerzone tells me it's from 1976. So it misses the magic 50 year or older age requirement by 5 years I'm afraid. But hey, nothing says you MUST build a model that fits in the contest rules.

If you're looking for a very easy to build model of that size and that would fit how about this DON DEWEY WOLFMEISTER ? I built one as a teen for my Galloping Ghost radio at the time and the model was crazy easy to build and tried to fly well for me. But I had range issues with my receiver that would not be corrected until the NEXT model. But the Wolfmeister did it's best for the short time I had it. And with a published date of 1966 fits neatly within the 50 year age rule.

The wing looks like it has a lot of bits. But it builds up over all the parts and comes up off the build board needing only leading and trailing edge shaping. I was amazed at how fast it went together.

So marked.

And hey, kkiyer did that all sheet flying wing last time. Nothing holding you back!

And I did try a couple of mini builds for small simple stuff to see if the idea would "fly". But from the low participation and relatively small amount of responses I felt like it failed to really take off.
