    Β*Well we're nearly home having stayed the extra night. What a brilliant event, surpassed all my expectations. Great joint venture with FCT tanks, thanks Saleem and Mark for your support over the weekend and Mark for sharing the driving. At least I got a chance to go around the other traders to say high and to see some of the flying

    Glamping was an experience but a hotel is calling for next year without doubt. You live and learn

    On the a very successful event for us and nice to be going back with an van devoid of boxes.Β*

    RE: Jetpower 2012

    Well i just went along for a jolly weekend away, my first time, so a massive thanks to Geoff White for the invite along with Jamie and Paul, don't know how it use to be but had a very enjoyable time, will be back next year, after all any weekend away having good food and beer with the lads has got to be a good thing, thought the night flying was enjoyable, not seen that before so was very impressed.

    Took the pocket camera along to take a few pictures, came back with far too many, will take forever to process, just a shame the light conditions were not a little better for the camera Friday/Saturday, missed out Sunday as we came home.

    A special thankyou to Barry for arranging the press pass, and finally Frank I want your Typhoon.

    Just a few I processed tonight and what I like about photographing this is shooting jets low level, hate shooting upwards.

    You are a master laurie great shots

    That shot of Ali's M346 looks is class, if there was ever a picture to say why you must have a pilot in your model that is is. Imagine how bad it would have looked with an empty cockpit.

    RE: Jetpower 2012

    yes i looked at it alot, one of my friends wanted it, but i simply dont think its worth the price.

    the wings are made of wood with normal covering on it, the fuse is non sandwich, the plane is expensive. ( the price just gone up by 300€ )

    it looked very well flying, and the fuelcell was very clever

    RE: Jetpower 2012

    It was on the Airworld stand. Had a chat with the pilot (an Airworld customer). He was very happy with the model. It looked fantastic in the air. He had increased the weight from book auw of 19kg to(I think)26kg have a higher wing loading for more realistic flight. There is no scale cockpit available for it right now but it is easy to adapt another cockpit. Turbine sits low in the fuselage and uses one pipe. The top pipe is a dummy. It did look like there would be enough depth for a twin turbine installation. Airframe comes in silver. Span 68" 176cm, fuselage is 111" 284cm Airworld web page is athttp://www.airworld.de/Englisch/Jetm...ning/index.htm

    RE: Jetpower 2012

    Hi Andrew,
    Thanks for the reply.
    I figured it was AW, just surprised to see one fly.
    The kits been out for years but no models were ever completed and flown except the prototype.
    I've been in contact over the years with many modelers in the UK and other places and they all said the same thing: the kit is a mess and it's unbuildable.
    There was also issues with the availability of the landing gears and wheels.
    Too bad because the Lightning is one of my favorite planes and would really like to build one.
    Thanks,
    Jon

    Thats such a coincidence that you say that. The Pilot was only bolted in last minute at the show. As I was in the start box I went to remove him, as I was worried that it might make the model nose heavy. At the last moment I said to my helper " A stuff it! Leave it in as there might be someone who gets a good photo of it, and a cockpit like this without a cockpit looks rubbish" Great minds hey?

    That's just I was talking to me as I was watching the stunning photo of the CARF L-39 patrol ! Superb shot, but empty canopy...

    Hi Keith
    It was good to meet up with you and Peter, and Saturday night was a blast (Great air guitar too)!
    Journey back was good, we were back indoors by 21:00hrs!!!!!!!!!!
    There was no light unit in the Kit[&o], so James is going to send me one!
    I can’t seem to PM Peter at the moment! If you see him tell to drop me a PM!
    We can come up for a get together![8D]
    Thanks for the company, you were both a great laugh.

    RE: Jetpower 2012

    On a few days of holiday in Germany after JetPower, can't easily post up pictures because I'm just on my iPad. Will post when I get back to the States and my desktop.
    This was my 1st JetPower and I must say it is a real extravaganza compared to any event in the USA. Very tightly controlled and scheduled flying in keeping with the German way of doing things, no complaints, awsome flying, and a really beautiful flying site.
    The trade halls were just mind boggling......so many goodies that you simply can't get in the a States. 

    Been by to visit Daniel Schübeler at his facility near Paderborn today. Back down to Frankfurt tomorrow and a flight home........

    As you probably know Ali, I have one gathering dust in my attic. I never abandoned the idea of building it, I just put it on the long finger. A retirement project is what I had in mind. But Tronds flying of this model got me really hot and bothered. Somehow I am going to have to get this moved up the building list. Yes there is loads of work, but nothing a real modeller cannot handle. But it will be a labour of love.
    Please get that one of yours flying Ali, I need the inspiration.

    Hi all English Electric Lightning enthusiasts!

    It was really nice to have so many good feedback on Jetpower Fair and here on the forum. It was not my best flights with the EEL, a bit stressful to fly the first time in such a big event.
    Here is the link to my build thread with a lot of pictures: http://www.jetsofnorway.no/forum/vie...t=535&start=10

    Best regards
