Manufacturer of Czech "Champion" park flyer


At the recent Hayes fly-in I saw a superb 30" span low wing aerobatic park flyer. It was a Czech ARF park flyer, with a very light glass fuse and a nice built up wing. It came with a 280 and gearbox, though the modeller and fitted a 280BB.

The model performed *really* excellently, with vertical rolls straight from takeoff, rolling circles, and lots of impressive precision aerobatics.

The owner had apparently forgotten the manufacturer! Can anyone identify this model?

TIA,

Neil.

Thanks for the suggestion Ed. Actually I had already looked there as the fuse did look a bit like the light glasswork on my JR Mossie kit.

If it is JR it isn't listed on their web site. This model looked a bit like the full size Volksplane homebuilt - but performed more like a Pitts Special!

Hobby Lobby will have this plane in shortly. I built the one that we have in the new catalog and it is a gem. It will be $99 including the gearbox and a mig 280 motor.
Hope this helps.

Mike, it would help if you gave me the manufacturer! Can you give me any more info about the model Hobby Lobby will be getting?

TIA,
