  • GP Piper Cherokee

    Great Planes Piper Cherokee

    Whilst collecting some bits from my local model shop I espied this model hanging from the ceiling. It was a Piper Cherokee, built from unknown kit at the time and very well finished. It needed an engine, servos and electronics. It was a good price so I took it on. Had a really good look at the model and thought, yes, nicely built, shame that whoever built it didn't bother with adding some flaps.

     

  • SIG "Something" Extra

    SIG Somethin’ EXTRA .  51 ½ inch span, SC52 2 stroke, 4 channels + flaps, finished with Oracover and Sola film. The box says ‘The design can be set up to fly as sedately as a trainer or switch to high rates and roll so quickly you can’t count them, perform violent snap rolls, enter upright or inverted spins with instant recovery confidence and while you’re at it, lay it on it’s side and knife edge into the next county’.

     

  • Weston UK Hype

    hype

    I recently acquired a Weston Hype 3D. It was brand new but with no box. I am not into 3D as such. No-one seemed to want it so I took it on as a  general "muck about" plane and it would be a shame for it to go to the bin which it was destined to be. After doing some research for a manual or some kind of guide it appears that there is not much on the "Tube" for these things although there were a few items for the Mini Hype but scarcely anything for the 60+ inch version. I found a manual but it was for a later version as the one I was looking at did not have a battery hatch or EP conversion mount. Neither were any control wire guide tubes installed as per the manual.  Oh No! What have I commited too?
