Iain, I have spoken to Lord Stair and we can get in to CK if we cross his palm with silver, so if you ever want to fly / test off an ashphalt runway it should be possible.

Model is looking great.

That's what it's all about Ally ;) Iain . Tarmac 8-) Has to be done bud. :dance:

Hi

Well after a sudden build which came to a stop we have finally managed a little progress on the Unico and decided to see if it would actually fit in the car :o thankfully it fits with no problem, so since it was such a bright afternoon I decided to take the unico to the field to get a few pictures in this now partially decorated state with just the fuselage to decorate now as soon as I can come up with a design, (the joys of a new vinyl cutter and new software)

And a picture next to the car for scale

Ian,

From the picture it does not look as if the model will go into that car which is behind the model, do you have a picture of the model in the car ?

It went in as it's the only car he had up the field

Iain,

Thank you, it looked as if it would not fit into the car but maybe a camera angle issue.

Good luck with the maiden flight and I hope all goes well, it will be good to see more photos or even a video of the maiden.

Hi
Well nerve wracking time over the Unico fly's and is more than adequately powered by the Jets Munt 200, we managed one flight on Friday night, but chose not to fly again due to not so perfect weather, looking forward to some more flight's hopefully on Monday
