Earlier in the month Rick Lloyd lost his workshop to a devastating fire. This has bought production of the Tracker 100s and Claymore F3J to a halt, as all moulds, machinery, models etc. have been lost causing the cessation of business for LiteFlight UK, the only UK based moulded model manufacturer. The Tracker in particular has been a perennial feature of the 100s competition scene and the loss of this model could have a marked effect on this class. The Tracker is a brilliant sport/competition thermal soarer, as well as light wind slope model and has been many a pilot’s first moulded model. He has also been working long and hard to produce a competitive F3J/F5J model. The details of the Claymore are featured in the latest edition of RC Model World. Rick was well into the prototyping stage, with wings proven and fuselage and other components manufactured. It would be a shame to see all this work come to nothing. I hope the modelling community can come together and assist Rick in any way possible. A discussion thread can be found on the forum using the link below. Update: Rick will now be starting again. See the topic below. If you would like to be involved and help in anyway, please take the time to post a response on the forum and support Rick. Let’s hope we can see these great projects literally rise from the ashes.
