It might be this Sunday - waiting for confirmation from AEB.

Otherwise it could be Middle Wallop in April.

Many thanks to those gentlemen and the other members of NLMFC for hosting me as a visitor today.

Antares rebooted!

Just received my new Baudis Antares fuselage featuring a FES (the anti-motor brigade might need to go to their happy place for a while)

The fuselage was ordered with the intention of allowing ROG launches at my local club without the aid of a tug.

Baudis have made a super job, re-contouring the elliptical nose section of the Antares to conform to a Schambeck spinner.

The motor mounts look super neat, although I might add some glass cloth just to be safe.

Baudis also fitted a WEMO EZFW FES retract that has a long throw to clear the prop for take off. This retract seems far superior to the old style, having a much more positive action and holds closed without any fuss.

Baudis also seem to have changed a few other things, fitting the wing servo cable connectors and cutting a hole and cover plate for the rudder servo.

The motor is a Hacker A50-14L V3 and I’m hoping to run a 14*10 (1800W) or 15*10 (2100W) propeller with 2*4S 5000mAH LIPOS.

All in all, superb work from Baudis - can’t recommend them highly enough.
