South Coast Sailplanes 'Showcase day' June 16th 2019.
Above, owner Peter Payne posing with just some of his own personal models from the selection that he brought along to the 'Showcase day'. All these models being available at South Coast Sailplanes,.
Models from front to back are ;- X Models Stingray, X Models Bhyon, X Models Sword DS, X Models Excalibur, X Models Ventus 2C.
The model that I myself have personally been particularly excited about seeing has been the new Vettore. This is the recently released new model by Voloinpendio in co-operation with their friend Giuseppe Ghisleri.
The Vettore is a 4 mtr T Tail glider, designed for both thermal and aerobatic flight.
Having only maidened his own Vettore just days ago, this being along the Jurrasic coast cliffs on the Isle of Purbeck Dorset, I was delighted that Peter brought this gorgeous looking model along. Pete duly demonstrated the model beautifully & to good effect, putting the Vettore through its paces on what was a 'big air day' on the Whitesheet slopes.

Description & specifications of the Vettore can be found here on the SCSP website;- http://www.south-coast-sailplanes.com/vettore
My wait to see this model was well rewarded, it truly is 'Cracking' in both looks & performance .
