Dave has had to re think parts of design for this real time experimental so he is working on that at home. By some black magic formula he discovered the electric engine was not giving the return he thought, so he has a box of electric thingymebobs and a new soldering iron! May looks good for flight if the WX is kind.Meanwhile the Eindekker has had a work over and is fit for flight soon as the WX is kind. Hope to get it to Breighton for their fly in and join up with the other Fokkers. Just as an aside and to bring a smile to your face the Eindekker as its a 80% repro is Known as THE LITTLE FOKKER!
for those not sure what a Fokker Eindekker is look at the photo on eshott airfield site under news.
The little Fokker has Gone . Sold to a Air ambulance jockey at Perth Scotland. Simon still holds the record for its max ceiling at 2,800ft, while its new owner managed 2,600ft.Now Purchased a Sherwood Ranger bi plane with a Jab engine so both of us can go fly.This one although 450 kg is the short wing version so a group"A" machine. Looking forward to some warmer wx so I can return the flex wing quad layer flying suit to Dave with a request to have it cleaned for my next winter seasons flying.
