27 January 2019. Started cutting parts for wing.

Feb 2019 update on model nearly ready for test flying.

11 March 19. The wing is so good I am now cutting panels for the MK 2 Horten 229.

16 March 2019 model ready for testing, reports to follow.

Maiden flight 24 March 19. Disastrous results two flights crashed both times un-flyable model flew straight up spun over and came straight down bang broken wing. Took model home repaired wing and reset line guide, reduced movement on elevators to + and – 4mm, re-calculated CG position added a load of lead in nose.

Tested again at Basildon on the 27 March 19 flew like a beautiful plane, took off low speed and high speed flying good, high flying good what was the problem. Happy pilot. Note this was only a test model to prove concept.

 

Problem solved good model.
