Discussion in 'My Favourite Model' started by FS Gilbert, Dec 3, 2005.
You can literally fly these models anywhere,they are so sloooo...
I used thin thread on my free flight example with the tissue wrapped arond.
FSG,thought that you would like to see my two Wright Flyers,they both fly beautifully in dead still air,during the Wright celebrations I used them in talks to schoolchildren on the origins of flight,setting up the foreplane is the secret in trimming this one.
I hadn't done tissue and dope since the late 50's, so it was a challenge to try that method again. For the future...NOT! There is a covering available that has adhesive and weighs less the T&D (Risteen, available from Skyhooks & Rigging). Litespan would also fit the bill here, due to the new forms of Li-po's that help keep the weight down.
By the by, Barry, lovely Wright's. I bet they fly as good as they look.
There is a Wright Flyer kite in the local model shop.
