Appreciate the reply ... 

I was actually joking about the flying ... I think after ~55yrs of model flying I might stand a chance !! I actually have 5 Cessna's of various sizes ... 


Not your first rodeo 😉

Reckon I've crashed more models than many people own !!

Actually that's funny - because I feel that models lasted me longer back in the 80's - 90's than they do now. I know the construction methods and designs have changed - before we had slab sides / doublers and stringers that could withstand a lot of our 'mishaps' - now with the skeletal style - seems that that crash resistance has gone. Foam is fine - till it gets a few flights under its wings ... then cosmetics tend to go ... along with a few concertina sections etc. 
I'll fly anything if I can launch it ! Youtube : solentlifeuk

Starting to look like a Cessna ... I'm not too good with painters tape - so will need to clean up those line edges ....
