another of those interesting personal websites carrying a fascinating
collection of pages.
This one belongs to DAVID CYBUL, who
lives on San Andres Island, Colombia, and who is featured on the personal
profiles page of this issue. The island is home to San Andres R/C
Flying Club - surely the smallest model flying club in the world with
just two members (and David is one of them) and a few honorary members
in Canada, apparently.
Our principle interest in David's site lies in
the fact that he is a keen r/c model flight enthusiast and his site has
pages dedicated to his hobby. David's island location means that there
are few available suitable sites for r/c flying, as a result of which he
concentrates on float planes, and his R/C Page shows some of the
models he has built, including details of his
own conversions. He has recently been building a Great Planes Piper
Cub J3, and building progress on this model is documented, together
with a variety of pictures of the build. Another interesting plane that
David flies is the Ace/Thunder Tiger Sea Master pictured on the
right, and powered with an OS 46 FX. The page featuring this model gives
a nice account of its maiden flight from off shore - it must be quite
strange to launch a model into the sea for take off! Incidentally,
David's other interest of fast model boats is also featured on his hobby
pages and well worth a look!
Other pages on the site feature David's Family,
San Andres Island information and pictures, Scuba diving and a link
called Etc and described as 'some odd pages, fun, etc.'
David's site gives a fascinating glimpse into
life on a small Caribbean island - isolated it may seem to be, but it
have its compensations!
