Variviggen No. 2

Did not have much luck with my first build of that plane. First trimming is done but it is not yet circling overhead.

Video 1

BD5 No. 2

Second verion of this cute Kit-based aircraft. I accidentally stepped on the first one on the filed

Video 1

Pilatus PC 12

Build from a rough draft plan. Very nice sight in the air.

Plan; Video 1

Cessna 195

Just wanted to build a well flying high winger. Ear Stahls designs always guarantee good flights

Maiden Flight

Ryan Pt 22

The beautiful trainer based at the nearby Merzbrück Airport. Flies very slow and stable

Plan

Fokker DVII

A WWi fighter build from Paul Matt drawing. Need a lot of power to fly

  Plan, Video

F8F - Bearcat

I could get real close to this plane at Camarillo Airport CA. So I had to build it. The kfour blader nver worked. Trimming proved to be very difficult

  PlanTrimming session, Flight

FlightFW 43 Falke

An old Focke Wulf Design. flies very constant and stable

Plan

Delta Dyke

An experimental homebuild aircraft. After many trials it flies.

Plan, Colour stripes, Video

 

OV-10 Bronco

A beautiful aircraft but not very well suited for rubber powered free flight as I found out. It took one hit too many in trimming phase.

Video 1, Plan plan

DO 27

The legendary aircraft used in the movie "Serengeti darf nicht sterben" . Excellent flyer.

      Video 1, Video 2

Concorde No.2

Had to try again on the Concorde. The first version did not have successful flights before it was destroyed. Flies fine now.

Junkers F13

Shian Dubh rebuild

went into the trees on the first flight session too.

Video 1, Video 2

Avro Arrow

Probably the second most famous cancelled aircraft. Makes a good rubber model with plenty of wing area and stabilising delta wing.

 

Plan

The fuselage formers are not exactly the height of the drawn fus and need djustments!  Cut to lentgh at the top.

Video 1, Video 2

Sghian Dubh

A homebuild flying wing. Not much luck with this model. It flew into a tree in the initial trimming session and was not found again. .

Plan

Messerschmitt BV-208

Built for the SFA flying wing cookup. It is one of the Luft 46 Designs. Flies well.

Bede BD-5

Cute experimental kit plane. Was flying surprisingly well. A wrong step on the field was the end of it.

Plan: Nick de Carlis

Video 1, Video 2

Concorde

Was difficult to trim and disintegrated before a stable flight could be achieved. Will build another one.

F-102 Delta Dagger

Built in one day. Excellent flyer (the delta wing creates a lot of stability). Flew into the nettle field.

Bücker Jungmann

Built from Walt Mooney plans. Nice flyer with lots of character. Still active.

Really had to build this odd looking aircraft. good climb and tight turns.

F7U

My first venture into tailess aircraft. Nice and stable flyer. Needed a lot of tailweight.

Air Tractor

The only plane ever to exceed a minute. Missing in Action.

Henschel 123

My first self designed biplane. I liked the looks of it. Landing gear kept breaking off and was replaced by an plug in solution.

F-104

Built out of curiousity whether it would fly. Surprisingly it did. Looks very cool in the air. Best flight was close to 30 sec.

Ju 52

This aircraft repeatedly flew over our house when it was in town for inspection. More time than usual was invested to do the details. Has possibility to power all three props but this proved to be too much hassle on the field.

 

Plan

FW 56

Superb flyer, very stable due to the high wing mounting. Got caught in the trees and came down after 3 month. Fuse is still ok and a new wing will be built.

Video 1, Video 2

 

Lockheed Orion

Visit the original here. One of my all time favourites.

Plan: Tom Nallen

Video 1

 

FW 189

MY first twin. Stable flyer. Single prop planes are easier to handle on the field. Best flight around 35sec

 

Plan

Video 1, Video 2

 

TA 152

Built as contribution to the model builder book cookup on SFA. The long wings and long nose make it a good rubber subject.

Klemm 53

A real floater with all that wing. Glide is an issue but dont know why.
