    Pity it wasn't a glider - must have been some good thermals under those clouds!

    Well done - great sense of satisfaction in building something using a machine you built yourself. Nice landing, too!

    Cheers Neale, the wing loading is such that it can thermal, it's a real floater. It was satisfying telling everyone who asked about the plane that I made it from scratch on my CNC router I also made myself!

    The landing was a good one, second had one hop skip and a jump

    Brilliant job!
    The sky was very cinematic too, you couldn't have picked a better backdrop for filming,

    If you will not be swayed by logic or experience simply pick the idea you
    like best, but ask yourself why you sought advice in the first place and,
    for a simple life, perhaps consider not doing so in future

    Lovely job well done. Those high wing trainer types are very relaxing to fly.

    Jealous now as I haven't been flying for several years. Must get on with that Spitfire project ! . . . . after I've finished the MK4 router, and the house jobs list, and, and
    Building a CNC machine to make a better one since 2010 . . .

    Cheers Barry, that's what I wanted, a nice floaty relaxing plane....next one is another trainer type but for a 0.25 glow motor to scream about the sky and practice my inverted flying etc. etc.

    I've still got stuff to do on the router...home switches, limit switches etc...someday!!

    Ok so Friday I started the frame to mount the router vertically, finished it off today including paint. It wasn't the all singing and dancing one I first planned as that would have been far too heavy to move. This will have a wood enclosure eventually to stop plastic/wood/metal chips from flying about as well as a dust/fume extraction system in it. Lots still to do, tomorrow will be putting the control panel on the wall and at last putting the electronics inside it! Anyway, some photos of the frame and router mounted.
