This  is a Flair Meteor 40, it had a fibre glass fuselage and foam wings it was heavy and flew very quickly. This picture was taken when it belonged to its previous owner. I obtained it after it had crashed and rebuilt it with wooden nose, I flew it for a few years before scrapping fuselage (often suffered damage due to the high landing speed). I still have the wing which will get used for something else.

Here are 2 incarnations of my Wight Witch, this was a free plan the plane was unstable and crashed nearly every time i flew it, I never did work out why. A friend has built a similar plane against my advice and it flies excellently both as a land plane and a water plane. I will add picci of that when i get one.

This aircraft is my own design, I have flown it once powered by a OS 40 fp engine. this engine was underpowered and to heavy (see lead at back). I shall fly it again when i have a large cc ".25 size" engine such as the new irvine .39.

This is a much lightened Gangster 42, to save weight the fuselage sides were 1/16 balsa, it has no rudder and no under carriage, taking off from a steerable dolly. I massively overpowered the plane by putting a Super Tiger .51 in it. This was great fun while the engine was going having missile like flying characteristics, but behaved similar to a brick when the engine stopped .I have now turned it into a rather unsuccessful slope soarer. I shall restore it to power with a more sensible sized engine in.

Here are 2 friends Telecaster's a very nice to fly mildly aerobatic sports type low wing plane. The one on the lefts canopy is removable and was replaced with a mechanism to release a small rc glider. This worked but was abandoned because it made the plane very difficult to fly.

Right is a magnum i also acquired as a wreckage having only had a about 3 flights i have a irvine .36 with pipe or an irvine .39 to power this when it is finished

Left is a Gangster 52 acquired as a wreckage and now looking a little tatty it still flys well currently on a irvine .39

Above is my exocet it has a asp .46 and is controlled with elevons,. The left and right pictures where consecutive frames taken with a fixed video camera. The camera takes 12.5 frames / second. The length of the plane is known therefore you can measure how far the plane has travelled in a 2/25ths of a second. from this the speed can be worked out  to be 103 mph.

Left is a  speed air,a artf plane that flys "on rails" and is quite aerobatic, I have been teaching a friend whose plane it is to fly mostly with this plane and although it is a low winger and therefore not an ideal trainer, he has coped very well and is about ready to take his A certificate.
