  4. Thank you very much Russell for posting your video The pilot of the Stingray in the video is Ian Rose, forum name being Swalleau. Those of you who know Ian will know very well how very highly skilled a pilot he is. During the day Ian put his own Stingray in the air & through its paces a number of times, on each occasion treating us all to a masterclass display of flying big aerobatic manoeuvres in the big air. Thank you so much for doing so Ian . Stu, Whitesheet RFC
  5. Whitesheet RFC. South Coast Sailplanes 'Showcase day' June 16th 2019. Hi All, 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. Above, Peter Payne with the new Voloinpendio Vettore after having given an impressive display of flying. Above, Peters Vettore on a fast pass along our beautiful Whitesheet slopes, Stourhead house in the background. 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 . Stu, Whitesheet RFC .

    EMP Algebra 2.5m

    A little anecdote. I used to help Dick when he had a stand at the annual Sandown show and the main sellers were the Algebra 2.5 and 3m. People would often come to the stand and ask 'what is the duration performance difference between the rolled ply fuselage and the glass version?' Dick would think carefully and reply 'about 3 seconds' then add 'but I don't know which way!'

    WANTED - V-Tail for Nan Xplorer

    I would be tempted to leave those stabs as they are, I'm not keen on cutting up nice things. You could make solid balsa tails, I have a few gliders like that. Graphite V tail: Two spars and a D Box Solid sheet tail, Chris Foss Multi Phase.

    WANTED - V-Tail for Nan Xplorer

    Excellent. Wixy gave me a pair of Stabs, which I can modify if necessary, beautiful layup, but I am not that great at building, so would prefer it if I could source a pair but if not will cut these ones If you have a picture that would be great, will need to cut new guid holes etc for the attachment

  23. Hi All, Just a quick post from myself this evening to give my thanks, & those on behalf of South Coast Sailplanes owner Peter Payne, to everyone who came along to the South Coast Sailplanes 'Showcase day' today, it was a 'cracking' day. The flying conditions we had today were those of Whitesheet at its very best The day starting with a 15 mph SW, this built steadily to a very buoyant smooth & thermally 35 mph SW. The day being dry throughout. I'l be posting lots of info & pics about the day tomorrow (Monday ). Stu, Whitesheet RFC Comp Sec.

    Hanging a moulded glider on the wall

    Good luck - photos please when its "hung" I've got the artwork (see avatar - Mondrian scheme Fletcher) - but SWMBO would go ballistic at the thought of that on the wall My away-from-home living space did have an Ahi propped up on a bookcase for a while to cheer the place up Phil.

    Hanging a moulded glider on the wall

    I have always just dropped the nose through a loop of string hanging down from a single nail or screw. Easy to take down for use and to replace but can wobble about in draughts.
