I had one that I flew in a Danish Viking Race in the era in which they were kitted.

It flew pretty well and I still have the wing in my model storage room, although damaged, when the Rx battery failed up at Clench Common.

It had a slight weak point in the fuselage just in front of where the fin starts so it would be worth getting a little extra cloth inside whilst building it. I broke mine on landing on practice day in Denmark, overlooking the fish factory, and Nic Wright (designer) mended it for me overnight (thanks Nic).

It was quite aerobatic and would make a good sports model still, although the one piece wing made it a little awkward.

Have fun, a blast from the past.

I wonder where the model below has ended up ?  I bought it from Dave Woods but can't remember who I eventually sold it to.

That Cavalier looks new so that dates the photo to 1990-91. Love the colour scheme
