Default Mach 1 from MAN plans

Dear classic pattern fan's,

I fly modelairplanes (RC) for 29 years. I made a lot of F3A models and like to have the classic ones. Two years ago I build a Curare 40 and I really loved this plane.

Since a couple of decades I also really liked the shape and flight performance of the Mach 1. I never had a Mach 1 and ordered the plan from Model Airplane News
A lot of work, but I really like to make a plane myself. I had to choice a 4-stroke engine. On my club in the Netherlands you can only fly with 4-stroke or electric.
Noiselevel is (sadly) a big issue in the Netherlands. I don't like electric, so the choice was a 4-stroke.
The very nice and powerfull YS FZ 110 and a 13x11 APC (10.000+ rpm) will give the Mach 1 a good performance.

The Mach 1 must have retracts, so I ordered a set and put it in the Mach 1.

I started building the plane, here are a oouple of pictures :



The Mach 1 is ready, the maiden flight will be in January / February 2015 !





When the Mach 1 has made it's maiden flight I'll let you know how it flies.

Kind regards,
