UK Regional / Re: The South East Flyers Thread Part 3
« Last post by swarrans on Today at 16:19:02 »
It's a lovely thing Paul, and as a Reinhard Schueller product a bit of model aircraft aristocracy (IMHO) so yes, it's a keeper.  I'm also hopeful that it will have its own place in my stable as it is quite a bit lighter than my DG800 and has a nice retract so I can use it for aerotowing and lighter wind days on the slope.  It still needs a little tuning I think - I want to check the horizontal dihedral and then perhaps take a bit more weight out of the nose. On the other hand, I don't want it to be super-neutral like most of my others so that it has a bit more self-correcting stability for aerotow.

Shame you couldn't be there but hopefully we'll get another chance soon.  My fence at home is coming on well but it's 50/50 if I will survive it physically!

Nice one chaps! Sorry I couldn't make it for the maiden, but glad
to see all went well.

What's the verdict Simon? It rolls, so does that alone qualify it as a keeper?

A great relaxing day today at Wrotham .
I planned to go for an hour and stayed for 5

Congratulation to Swarrens on his maiden and follow up flights of his 1/3 ASH26 ..
I did the best I could do with my phone footage .it's not quite up to miniphase (paul) standards

I had a good few flights with my Albatross and flight 2 and 3 with my siren ..
The sky was rather busy on my sirens second flight and I felt i wasnt able to see everyone before I got to them .. my third flight was great ..really enjoyed the model and was well worth the long slow build .

Have a good day at thurnham tomorrow chaps ..
Hope u all feel guilty flying whilst I'm sitting in traffic ..

Don't get too excited about sub 250g planes from Depron, I understand they have ceased production!

Si, I'm pleased that you didn't mind me resurrecting those videos as I am sure that a lot of people won't have seen them. My favourite is the Hot Box!

PS: No you're not dying even though you've soon got a BIG birthday to celebrate!  ;D

Thanks Eric for those great (and some not so great!) memories.
Sounds a bit like an obituary - I'm not dying am I?!

Ah yes my doomed PSS phase - the number of hours dedicated to those re-builds all for a few seconds of flight!  On the plus side, I guess if I hadn't done those I wouldn't have attempted the scratch build ASG.

Great memories and buddies along the way, thanks all - and especially Eric for bringing them to life

Congrats on ten years swarrens ..and thanks eric for the backstory .. when i first started flying with the help of my late grandfather i wanted something airobatic and went against advice and got a p51 .. (out of the first 5 flight there was 5 rebuilds ..

Cheers GP .. the maiden went fairly smooth considering the wind ..i did land quite far back as my landing ark back around the slope was wide and i was blown back ..

Wrotham.. Dan and I took a trip to wrotham yesterday to find alan stalking the slope with his big mouldie and a rucksack .. we spent a few hours in which time i slope maidened my 2m T.tail albatross .. it felt very smooth and solid and will return to the hill on the next outing ..

Highlight of the trip was Dans molded Discus maiden
He set it up at the hill and he went for it .. the wind had dropped slightly and with a good push into wind the discus was off smoothly .. i flew.my alby alongside for a bit and the 2 looked great sweeping along the slope. dan had it up for about 25mins 10-15 trying to land her .. after about 12 overshoots he managed to get it down safely and looked pretty chuffed with himself .. feedback was elev to twitchy and ailerons to spongy ..

Slope / Re: X-Models PrismaRay Build Thread

Ha! I just discovered this thread, I completely forgot I'd written it. Just an update to say the Prismaray is still going strong six years later. I flew it last weekend, it flies nicely, all the components etc I fitted in it have proven to work well, no problems.
