Peter K test flew his recent new purchase of a CAP232 by 'Seagull Models' powered by 15cc Evolution Petrol engine with an OS G5 Glow plug instead of a spark ignition. Peter said that ''she flew well with slight adjustment required the CG, but wasn't keen on the colour scheme. It was not easy to see against the backdrop of the grey sky". He is now looking at the possibility of recovering the underside of the wing in orange and white.

Schools Build a Plane Project Ready for Flight

Peter K and his team from the Schools Build a Plane Project are nearing completion of their Rans Coyote microlight. Engine runs have taken place and flight testing will take place following completion of paperwork. Well done to all involved and we all look forward to seeing the aircraft soon.

After saving most of the parts of my crashed Boomerang I decided to plan a rebuild, with a bit of a twist, knowing there would not be another one up the field like it.

Whether it will fly is another story. Have finished the fuselage and the wings are nearly ready for covering. Have included a few photos

Dave has built this beautiful Bellanca Super Decathlon XL. Unfortunately Dave couldn't attend the winter build competition due to work commitments but would have entered this superb model. The aircraft has a wingspan of 115" and is built to 30% scale from an Exclusive Modellbau kit. The model will be powered by a 80cc engine and Dave may need to buy shares in a covering company but as yet hasn't decided which colour scheme to do. Maybe it could be covered in clear covering so we can admire the woodwork?
