Spitfire MK IX

seagull spitfire

Previously test flown successfully and in this video the owner, Simon gets a chance on the sticks assisted by Jon our top test pilot. This the 80 inch wingspan version from Seagull models. Powered by an OS 40cc four stroke petrol engine, 10 servos. The model comes with split flaps and retracts with oleo legs. This is Simon's pride and joy!  This version has invasion stripes so is much later than the speech by Winston Churchill in 1940 featured at the beginning of this video. Back then they would've had just camoflage.

Simon says:
In 1979 attempted to build a Mick Reeves kit Spitfire. Failed to finish it and along with an original Chris Foss Wot4 kit that I had built and 4 channel Futaba radio set sold up and gave up the hobby. Much later on......

BVM BobCat

bvm bobcat

New member Phil Mackie of Wimborne MAC flew his BVM BobCat at our Cashmoor field for the first time on the 18th January 2020.  Although quite cold there was a great blue sky with high light cloud to fly across. He had an excellent flight and made an excellent landing after a trial landing approach.

Turbine Power is a JetCat 160. Goes like a scalded cat!  At cruise power the engine is very quiet and the plane flies very stable.
