Use whatcha got!

I was lucky enough to inherit the Vickers Wellesley above, quite some time back.

It's been hangar'd up on my loft in the shed for some time now. I can finally climb a ladder again, and brought it down this evening. Put a 20T Lens RC motor up front and hope to have some scale maneuvers in the morning (if the weather holds out!)

Definitely not like dart. I actually had to fly it on the wing instead of on the prop!

Whats that nonsense all about?

Seriously though... Awesome profile, design, and really just fun to glide around the field.

OW, it’s all part of the addiction … hahaha

Here’s a nice plan we found , tail surfaces already size compensated for our scale Air … i can’t read it , but it looks like an old control line plan drawn by who looks like Walt Musciano … ( A True Master Modeler ) …. Seems there were several variations so nothing is “sacred”… and it’s gliderlike proportions make it a sweet slow flier … My profile version was very simple to make and very strong …

OW, Plenty of time to build one …. we’re starting "the building season” … This one might too lightly loaded for windy winter weather … But it would be great for indoor flying ...

I sadly have no places to fly indoors. But in front of my house we have about 10-20 acres where I fly the foamies in the winter. We get lots of wind in the summer and none in the winter.
