How much do you trust your wing?

 Sitting on your wing is one thing but getting your wife to stand on it!

  Here's a picture that shows a huge amount of faith in the strength of a Willow wing.  I can't imagine the trouble I'd get in trying to do this one at home!  If you can top this one please let me know!

Old school testing

  You know when a builder is taking his work to heart. Just as I was watching the first storm of the winter raging I received this picture of Zhou strength testing a wing.

  It shows faith in his own building skills. I'm planning to get out and enjoy the strong winds as soon as possible- good to know the kit's up to the job!

full circle flying

  It’s been a heck of a 2 years but to show that things go full circle I’m back on Whitesheet hill in light air with a Merlin and an SOR and a big old grin.  Flying has been sparse since returning to the UK but it’s still a joy to fly good models in a beautify place- wherever that is in the world.  My return to the slopes with an SOR was delayed by my dropping my TX- you can take it all around the world safely but drop the dam thing in the garage!  Thanks to Mike Ridley, top service as always.

  I’ve been contacted by a couple of old friends with some pictures.  Milan Janek’s leaner Wizard compact fuselage looks really nice- you know that it’s going to be built to a great standard- I remember something about the first Compact fuselages being really slim.

  The Willow builder Zhou has sent me some building pictures to wet my appetite, I always like to see building pictures!  The Merlin I’ve been flying on my travels  proved itself to be a bullet proof top performer, which has flown in so many places and conditions that gives you a real trust and confidence in your model.

Off on my travels - models now available Direct

My family and I are making the most of the opportunity to spend some time living in New Zealand.

In order that the Willow SOR and Merlin models are still available I have decided to take myself out of the process.  Here is the manufacturer's E mail.  Please contact him directly.

New year and a new toy

Flying and building has been very limited but here's a little beauty heading my way right now.

Yep we can do curves and more complex designs now. But more importantly I'm just looking forward to getting out and enjoying the model.

Winter model direct orders being taken

The exchange rate changes haven’t helped us over the last few months!
I love flying my Merlins as my fun sports model.  Thank too keeping everything as close as possible we’ve kept the F3F model price at £500.  I’m confident that there’s no other model out there in it’s class at this price.
Please contact me for details of the models and build service.

I’m hoping that I’ll be able to get away with the new slope puppy to some races this winter to race the Merlin and the main racer Willow SOR!

Back in the air!

  It’s been a long old time since I’ve updated here, mainly because it’s been a long time since there’s been any flying to talk about.

  After a mad old summer the new slope dog and I have been out for some relaxing flying.  After an eternity of not flying the timeless Compact seemed to most obvious model to take.  It’s not until you don’t get to do something that you appreciate it.
  At home the new SOR build has had a real boost.  The SOR is going together smoothly and quickly, the wings and tail have slotted onto the fuselage without any fuss.

  I can’t wait to get some more air time with the SOR as the weather turns colder.
