At the risk of taking this excellent thread off topic, what size glider can the Riot XL cope with and did you beef up the power train? I ask because I have just been donated one to operate as a club tug. I've not seen it yet, and rumour has it that it has spent a few weeks up a pine tree in a former life, so I'm not sure what I've let myself in for!
Trevor, only done the 2.2m Parkzone Ka8 so far, but it doesn't even notice them.

Thanks Frank. There are a couple of 100in traditionally built gliders hoping for a tow, so hopefully it should manage those okay.

Managed to really wring the Wolf out at White Sheet yesterday. It's about as much fun as you can have standing up...! ;)

Very nice! You're so lucky to have such a great slope, too!

The wolf plan looks great ! I'm liking this smaller scale stuff,,,,,,come on Chris how about a small rhonadler ?? I'll be on board with having a fleet of 1/6 scale sailplanes as they will be easier for me too take too France !

Chris - love the Mini Wolf and the small Petrel - I think free plans are a great way of encouraging more interest in scale sailplanes.
The smaller size certainly makes storage easier !!!!
There is no right or wrong size but can I draw your attention to the excellent 'Action Man' type 'Action figures' produced by Dragon. They do a vast range of military figures /uniforms/civilian clothes and a huge range of very life-like heads. All this can be found on Ebay and heads are in the £5-10 range which make excellent pilots. These are 1/6 scale so....... any chance of a 1/6 Rhonadler ????

Paul
