Notes from Tony

The model is really Bob Bailey’s F1R with slightly simpler wing and tail outlines, also Bob flew with his own VP hub whereas mine flies predominantly with a Treger F1R hub which I can wholeheartedly recommend.

For anyone not wanting to use a VP then I would suggest that they use the flaring blade shape from Bob Baileys original model which works well.

All up weight is around 400mg and this is difficult to achieve with OS film whilst still retaining adequate airframe stiffness – so definitely not a beginners model. I still feel that 10 to 20 mg can be shaved off this, but I know I have yet to fly the model to it’s full potential even at this weight.

Best wishes,

Tony
