Default St Leonards Meteor

I picked up a NIB kit on the weekend for a St Leonards Model Supplies Meteor.

34" free flight high-wing cabin, sheet fuse, .5-.8cc. Looks English, or possibly Australian. The plan shows a DC Merlin (which I also picked up, it was a good weekend ). The instructions also mention radio, so it can't be too early I suppose with that wing-span.

Anyone know anything about these kits?

Far be it from me to respond to my own post, but here's a pic of the Meteor just built and test flown.

The Merlin is a *wee* bit too much power. ROG takes about 3ft then straight up for about 50ft. Flies well if a little quickly while the glide is reasonable. Good fun!

Thats a real snappy little bird you have there. Are you flying it single channel? - Jim

No, 2 channel, rudder/elevator. Jeti Rx and JR 371(?) micro servos. 4 cell Varta NiCad pack picked up from Tandy for about A$3.
