From plans WimborneMAC club member Mike Seale scratch built this 70's classic pattern plane in very short time. Electric powered with SK3 motor, Jetcraft electric retracts. Maidened on the 27th February 2016 at our Cashmoor field. Not ideal conditions, grey skies, 6 degrees C and a biting 15mph wind it felt like 1C. However, Mike was unperturbed and and after a warm up flight with his previously built Angel pattern gave the Atlas it's first flight. Getting the feel of it first!
A short while later Chris Wild was so impressed he beavered away in his workshop and built one himself. Flies equally well too.
