  • This is the follow on video from the BMFA Achievement Scheme - Introduction Video. This is the Fixed Wing 'A' Test demonstration and guidance for potential test candidates.

    This video shows the pre-flight checks that your expected to demonstrate and should be done with each model that you intend to fly prior to starting up and flying .  Then a demonstration of flight manouvres by Duncan McClure that you will be expected to complete satisfactorily.

     

  • What to do with a 1550mm EPP slope soaring wing? First a little history. I have had this wing for some years now purchased from Hobbyking. It's initial outings were purely as slop soarer and performed well although not a fast wing, more like a lumbering bomber. At least it was not bothered with the collisions from the more popular 46 inch Zagi, X-its and similar clones who just bounced of it and spun to earth. Flying it got boring so was stored away and forgotten. Some time later during an idle hands moment I spotted it laying around in the back of the workshop. After some measurements I decided to bring it back to life again as a slope soarer with a difference, it would have a fuselage and tail fin and hopefully look like a delta wing aircraft.
