Not mine!
Lassi Nurila's 'Glacial' in April, from his Facebook page.
He has been doing well with it at F3A World Cup contests in Europe. Apparently, others are using this design too.

Hi Stan,
I just assumed, incorrectly, that the Dark Star was e-powered. Looking at the photos more closely I see the head of the engine. Where does the exhaust exit? Are you running a pipe? If yes, is the pipe tunnel above the bottom wing, inside the fuselage? What is the dry weight? Lastly, I noticed that there appears to be negative stagger in the wings (lower wing LE is ahead of the top wing LE); what was the reason for that design feature? The big question is: how does it fly?
I hope you’re finding time to get to the flying field.
best regards,
Will Bartlett

Friend of mine Eric wanted a second plane for the French championship in case his usual plane had problems.
He did maiden flights with his second plane last week end.

I used HR 3K T300 Taffeta carbon fabrics 160 g/m in 100 cm width for rounded parts
and Carbon fabrics 3K AS4 Taffeta 98 g/m Powdered 1 side in 102 cm wide for flat surfaces (sides of the fuselage)

The little guy is a Flight Hobbies Stage 50 with a YS 63 up front. Great flying plane. Would make a perfect entry level air frame. To bad it is no longer in production.

The big one is a 2M Twister with a YS 160DZ for power. I found out the 170DZ CDI back plate is a direct bolt in so it will get converted to a sparky in the near future.
