Thirty one years ago

Unread post by JohnOSullivan » Wed Nov 01, 2017 3:08 pm

Came across a link to my Spinifex Sailplane article. Hard to believe this was 31 years ago

The 2 metre version of this was the Minifex and my current Mayfly 2m is a current development of that model.

Thanks for sharing, John! This is great!

Quite an accomplishment - and indicative of your long-standing history in the hobby.

My first published design was my HI-Tee free flight power model in Model Aircraft in Feb 1964. I flew this design in the 1960 and 1963 Free Flight World Championships.
This is the design I used as a base for my current Electric Free flight model, the Blizzard.
