Here's a strip of thumbnails of GORDON COOK's aerobatic model "Sweet Apple". Gordon is Chairman of Test Valley Model Flying Club in Hampshire, UK, and also one of the club's instructors.

The model is of Gordon's own design and takes its name from Sweet Apple Farm - he names all his models after local places. It is powered by a Laser .80, has an all-up weight of 2.7 kg, a 60 in. wingspan and length of 63 ins. First flown July 1998. 

Just for fun and for Gordon's benefit, I've circled the spot where he made his first radio-controlled flight 36 years ago, using a single-channel transmitter equipped with an old tank aerial which he says he found - you can see the location when you view the right-hand picture full-screen!
