Puch it is. Its one of my clubs fleet ( Cambridge ) We use it for primary training all the way through to mild aeros. It's a great machine to learn how to spin and recover in as the ASK 21's we also have are a soft ( Funny but my turbine powered model is just the same)
I grabbed the opportunity to see the Beautiful UK countryside in its winter coat, and do some spins and recoveries. I need to get up to speed as the new toy is arriving just after Christmas!

We had a sprinkling of snow before i got to westonzoyland today, did not stop me flying though. Not a breath of wind and mild as a result, only one there so cracked on with flying the Bandit. I could not get any aerial shots . . . other than of my trusty Parkzone Radian and only got some aerial pics when i trimmed it to fly in a circuit around me while i tried to get some decent pics . . . was not going to do that with the Bandit!

Hi Ali,

I met with Pete Wells last week and he told me you got bitten by the glider bug ! I was there to see the Twister . I think I need one

Hey Marc,
Small world hey? I just found out today that my CFI on the fox is a customer of ours!
Pete ( As you know ) is a ket part of the swift display team. It's their fault I am now hooked on gliding! Great guy and that twister is an awesome little plane. Amazing what can be done with sub 100 BHP. I agree! You do need one.
Regards Al

Yep, I heard the story and saw the pictures at Pete's ! It's great that your club doesn't let a little snow keep the gliders on the ground . Mine's the same .

I'm in the process of discussing exactly what its's going to take to put a Twister kit in my hangar . Lotsa $$$$$ but it should be very cool and unique in my neck of the woods. I got a good feeling from Pete and I'm sure he'll be a great help for me to complete one . Amazing how it's really just a LARGE quality German composite model airplane kit.

Good luck.. I am scared enough of their models....
I dont know Pete all that well but I do get the impression that he is a great guy to deal with, and would have no reservations about buying a plane from him.
It is scary sometimes how close to model like some of these small Aircraft are. Even more scary when I see a hoe built that I would not even dare to fly as an RC, yet alone sat inside of it..
