    This where I am at so far but really hopeing to get back to work on them this year I hope to get more pics on in the future but I am having problems with the computer!!!

  2. Well folks, after seeing Ali from Avicraft with his slowfly EPP firefly at our interclub funfly on Sunday (16th May), I dashed over to Avicraft on Monday to go get one for myself. Really impressed with how strong and tough it is, and it flies really slowly too, perfect for a beginner like me, I can crash it as much as I like and not break it (almost maybe).

    So, I got it home, shot a quick video of it, and now need to get it painted and put together asap for some amateur proof testing and learning.

    I have a feeling this is going to be a ton-o-fun.

    Avicraft are making their own kits, laser cut, for £19.99 with plywood laser cut motor mounting and they can supply you with whatever specification you want to fly it, but I went with 3 servo's, the linkages, GWS slowfly propellor, motor and a 10amp Speed controller, for "around" the £80 mark. I'll slap in a 4ch parkfly futaba receiver I have and a 2cell lipo battery!

    Several of us @ Croydon Airport Model Flying Club have bought one this week..
    Here's the quick vid I made to show you:

    Now all I need to do is get it painted and assembled, I'll show you once I've done mine.
