Hi Terry,

many thanks for the inspirational video! Now that we have a secure supply of motors I hope that at least a few of the expert modellers out there - Mike Stuart, Richard Crossley, Peter Smart et al will be attracted back to flying jets.

Some years ago, one modeller (I forget his name, alas) did start an F-107 for 'micro EDF', but I don't think it was ever flown:




Chuck Yeager's favourite fighter, the F-20, has long been on my 'to do' list:



And as for the lovely Avro Arrow, I'm happy to report it has been done, and flies as good as it looks:





Modesty prevents me from saying who the designer/builder is - just don't ask for the plan! B)

There are a number of splendid Rapier powered models on Mike Stuart's website, for example:

Mike's Jets

models that could well be revisited.

Has anyone else got a list of models they wish to share - it is after all coming up to our 'winter build' time. Perhaps it's also time to start a new thread on this topic? :)

Chaps, my latest foray is the Veron Fouga Cyclone...estimating a low power L2 equivalent?

Also does anyone have a copy of the Crossley FW226 Flitzer plan please?

Thanks all

Hi Daniel,

I've never seen a Fouga Cyclone fly successfully with a Jetex or Rapier, but only by (gentle ) EDF, so good luck with this one. Lowest power poss I think! :S
