Hi all,

Here’s a link of an indoor/ outdoor model - Spinboy- designed by an Aeromodelling friend in Pune.
This model is now available as a kit with laser cut parts. Easy to build with clear step by step instructions.
Flies well both indoor and outdoors.
For Those interested I can give his contact details for purchasing the kit.



A few other models constructed await test flights. Will post them asap.

Can increase the duration of the flight with a longer loop and more turns. The wind was pretty strong and gusty but the model held its stability well. Will fly even better in still wind conditions.

Congrats. Nice flight. Is the wing flat or slight camber?
Really looking forward to your Peabody Packet flight video. Should be awesome.

The wing has no camber so is simple for construction by beginners. Nevertheless the glide is pretty efficient.
The twin prop Peabody will be test flown soon. Also the high aspect ratio A6.
Lot of flying to do.

This is a cute unique design by the late Bill Brown named Yvette after his daughter. Made it over 2 years ago and flown it in several workshop/demos. Has taken quite a few knocks and undergone minor surgeries as most demos are in restricted spaces-- but still flies pretty well. Somehow never took a decent video of its flight. Got a very short video in a recent workshop.
Plans are on the Hippocket forum alongwith some of his other interesting designs.
Pics being converted to reduced size and format for attachment asap

@glidiator,
Here’s an example from my RCG Vintage forum to support what you are trying to popularise.
Best wishes

These old time designs do fly well. The Jetco kits were pretty popular from what I read on the net.
This model has those wing tip tabs that are useful to adjust trim.
I still have not actually flown my Hangar Rats made quite a few years ago and safely boxed and stored.
A good large indoor venue will have to be found soon to test fly them. The BITS Pilani Goa Campus which is just 10 mins from my place has a large 3 badminton court space. Plan to use that during a workshop for their Aeromodelling Club is planned in January.

Hi all,
Check out these series of YouTube videos on  indoor rubber powered Aeromodelling.
In several parts on this channel covering cutting, covering, glueing, tools required, rubber preparation and winding, etc, etc.
Check out the whole series and your understanding of construction of indoor rubber power models will get a boost.
Get into this fascinating world of indoor free flight this new year.
Happy flying
Anant
