  1. Very sad news - he will be missed by so many. My thoughts are with Alex's family and friends at this time.
  2. Thanks Barry. I am flying full-size out of Sisteron and the nearest model club is in Ribiers about 5 miles away.
  3. Thanks Matty. I had looked at the www.finesseplus.org and was surprised at was required to fly models in France. I wondered whether there was any reciprocal arrangement with the CAA/BMFA scheme. The risk with it being so difficult is that even sensible people will be tempted to fly "illegally". I will leave my Shadow glider at home ? Thanks again Robert.
  4. I am heading off to France this weekend to do some full-size gliding in the Alps. I would also like to take an electic F5J type glider (NAN Shadow E) with me. Can any forum members who live in France (eg David Davis) give me some advice. Is the UK CAA registration scheme recognised in France, or would I need to the full DGAC registration etc? Are the rules different for flying from recognised French model clubs in comparison to ad hoc flying from a farmer's field? All advice appreciated. Regards, Robert
  5. Jon, an interesting project - please keep us updated. The 300 will be about right and sound great!
  6. I flew a Tornado (Crescent version) in the late 80s. It was powered by an HP 61 FS and then a Webra 61 Champion on a pipe. The Irvine 61 will be a good match. Any trike retracts will be suitable - Springair, Robart and Rhom retracts sometimes come up on ebay.
  7. I have yet to build my Wots Wot XL, but it will soon be my next project. I am still thinking about engines. My OS GT 33 is currently in something else, but I have an OS GF40 (petrol 4-stroke) that I could use. Has anyone flown anything with an OS GT 40 4-stroke? Will it mount inverted ok in the WW XL?

  8. Posted by Piers Bowlan on 28/12/2020 17:07:51: I will forward the files, if that is OK? Thank you again. Edited By Piers Bowlan on 28/12/2020 17:34:30 You are welcome. The more Hannibals the merrier! I believe Carbon Copy can supply a GRP cowl and I think Inwood models can supply an aluminium one. Edited By Robert Welford on 28/12/2020 18:11:34
  9. Posted by Piers Bowlan on 28/12/2020 14:37:08: I have this digital plan of the Hannibal which has clearly been produced by a German gentleman but I don't recall it's origin. Perhaps someone on the Forum can remind me if they know. As said earlier by Alan, a little work is required to draw the fuselage formers and ribs but all the information is there on the plan if you have a little experience working with drawings. I am sure one of the drawing programs would help here but being old school I find a pencil, set square and ruler is adequate. I sent it to you. If you open the .dwg file in a CAD package all the info. is there.
  10. Bob Flook's Piranha as suggested by PatMc. Easier build with separate wing servos instead of mechanical mixers. Phase 5 rather than Phase 6 - better light air performance. Stan Yeo designs. (PheonixMP)
