John Marchant's Balsacraft Xtreme
The builder is Reg Marchant - John's dad - and John promises some finished photos as soon as it is covered.
Click this over-sized thumbnail for a full-screen view of John's model - a very nice piece of building work.
On our last issue, we saw Derick's finished CSD Radar and I concluded the item by saying to Derick, '. . . we're ready and waiting for your next project'. We haven't had to wait for very long - here is is already building again!
Here's what Derick says about the project so far;
" I just started my new Rally XP and it's fun!
"Easier than Lego, took me less than 40 minutes to build the fuselage - not bad for an ARF pilot!
"I'm going to use a Speed 280 with 4·7 x 2·4 CAM folding prop, 26mm Graupner spinner."
Derick is planning on using a power pack of 7 cells x 250 Nicads and has a target weight of 10 oz ready-to-fly for this 48·25 wingspan electric glider mini-plane (it has a 247·6 square inch wing area).
Derick will welcome any suggestions for covering, if anyone has any ideas.
