  • 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.

     

  • 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?
