You can see the trees through the hole in the starboard wing…
It was Jan’s fault, I swear!
Something to compare the damage with…
Proof that the hole is more than a foot wide
Is this taking Nigel Frith’s minimal structure ideas just a little too far?
Hello out off Control … line pilots!
I’ll tell you the truth about the “glory hole” in the wing – on Saturday Jan and I flew BCD combat – some great action. First flight – Jan cut my streamer but at the second attempt to cut he caught the thick string from the Streamer and lifted my tail and I flew into the ground, so I fitted a new propeller.
Now, on the second fight I was able to cut his streamer. Counter attack – Jan flies from below and hits the outer wing with the prop resulting in a large cloud of paper and balsa with a nice sound
I found that the P51 flies just as well with the hole, so a new wing-profile is born. Very stable at 30 °, only too slow at speed, but it still resulted in me getting a rating on Sunday – 201.3 points!
