    It was interesting when it lost its vertical stabilizer! Fortunately, it was back over land and it dropped into the field…

    It’s even more impressive on a larger scale:

    Interesting in a theoretical way; but toy airplanes have ruined several otherwise pleasant walks by their vile whining which is audible for about a mile radius; and the constant threat of being hit by a crash. In a rational world All such viciously noise-polluting things would not be allowed, would be outlawed (i.e. anybody is at liberty to destroy them) on land, sea or in the air.

    But that isn’t the world we inhabit; but the opposite.

      Yah, boo, Bruce. You are a crusty old bugger. 🙂

      Small boys and yearning chaps have been flying models since Leonardo’s day, and the motorised ones with a radio control are but the latest generation. And jolly good too. The jet powered even better.

      But that one is gorgeous. OK, It ain’t pretty but it is elegant and well behaved and would do well at the RC equivalent of crufts. It should be renamed ‘Good dog Nigel’.

      It’s a silent glider, not a noisy toy ‘plane.
