building and flying model aircraft

Nigel Sunday

Took my David Owen Magnum C/L to the field last Sunday 20th. Lovely and sunny, but a breeze so there was no one else there. I set up the stooge and had half a dozen flights. It was great as I didn’t need to make way for any R/C activity and was able to test some tank set ups and timing I had been trying to get done for a while. Stopped midway for a cup of tea and a bikkie and was done and home by lunch.     

Magnum designed by David Owen and redrawn by Steve Thomas  https://outerzone.co.uk/plan_details.asp?ID=8542  powered by OS Max 20 loop scavenged, 9 x 4 Master GF prop, 6.9mm venturi and 50ml uniflow tank. This model flies smooth with no tendency to oscillate pulling out of sharp manoeuvres.
