First of all a big Hi to all.

One cool plane by all standards. It was too windy for any enjoyable testing today but once it calms down I'll take it back to the lake and fly again.

My setup:
Jet 1 kit from Falcon
P60SE with Kero start
1 Litre main tank and a hopper tank
Skis and for the summer big ass 5 inch wheels (HotRod)
CoG approx 1/3 from the leading edge.
Throws are fairly moderate, with Expo around 35%.
Futaba 12Z and a PowerBox switch for LiPo.

Regards, Patrik

Electrickery is the work of the devil.
Proper aeroplanes are powered by engines.

I made new engine mounts slightly lowering the engine and then I lowered the tank floor, then with a shoe-horn an a little trimming a Dubro 1.5L tank went in.  :)

Here's a few photos of my kit. Also how I protect with a fire blanket my tail if I would get a wet start from my P60.

Ah-ha, I have got a 1.2 Dubro tank in with a trap. How long are your flights?

The Saint. (Owen)

It hasn't flown yet, but since the Wren MW54 consumes 1L of fuel in 4.5 mins, I would estimate around 6 minutes.

Hei Patrik,
any further flights on yours? Nice photos. Lets take some flying photos next time.
Ugly? Well...it certainly does look British in some funny way. Like a Leyland van.

Hi all
Last post was back in 2011 and cannot find much information on the web about this plane. I just bought one new and was looking for any photo of the installation in the fuselage under the wing seat area. Are there any out there still flying

kinverflyer

One of these would be ideal for the P80
