That JK has done it again- tempting me from my Willow!

Here's a shot of the Electric Artist 3.  Colour schemes on the Artist 3 page

Willows are here!

Yep, after more time than I want to remember a box of production Willows met my return from holiday.

Has the wing been smoothed out?  yep

is it stonger?  yep

stiffer?  yep

got one left after I told Tony at Slope Racer? Nope!  they're all heading to Tony.  It's been great to work with a distributor that understand model developement and I can trust so all the Willows will be with Tony as soon as they land.

I'm away to build the Beta I have left for the Welsh open.

artists have landed!

I've just heard from tony fu, he's been stroking his first batch of artist 3s all morning.

The perfectionist tony gets to agree with me now- beautiful, top quality winners

Drop him a line now

Willows on the march

  After taking on Lundy the claim for the Willow altitude record has been claimed by Andy at 8,000ft.  Partly down to launching from the top of the Swiss alps, between drinks at Stefan Bertschi’s stag weekend.  Just goes to show you can’t put a good model down (especially when you’ve got a sports tube to fit it in).  Congratulation and good luck to Stefan.
  The Sanwa Servos are now here and the Willows on their way!  I’ll have mine flying for the Welsh open.  Tony Fu will have them in stock at the same time, although some technical issues are stopping him up-dating the web-site I understand.

  I’ve had to make do with a day at the beach and an evening with the Artist (only the camera phone with me) whilst I wait for Parcelforce.- It's a tough life.

A busy time and still flying!

      The chance of meeting the Dark Lord Dakin himself on the hill and seeing him do his stuff was not to be missed and he had Partland Ducking out of the way of his Caldera in no time. Portland seems to have been my main flying destination lately and on Sunday it was my cross tail Compact’s turn to go out to play.  I always forget how much I enjoy this model- stunning tracking and tank tough to give your confidence a boost.
  A quick look to my mail and it looks like Tony Fu’s first batch of Artist 3 models are winging there way over to him right now.

  In preparation to what should be the first commercial Willows being sent next week I’ve got a box of  Sanwa/Airtronics 94761 servos heading this way.  Defiantly my favourite wing servo and great for other models than the Willow- drop me a line if you’re building right now
