This video clip shows my little indoor Auster at Calshot Velodrome, a couple of years ago. 24” span, Falcon radio gear, weight about 1.5 oz.
First flight, 23 December 2009, at Howard’s Field
And at Strawberry Field in 2010, a few weeks before a near-terminal crash due to TX failure
Rebuilt as an AOP 6, based on the one at the Middle Wallop museum
Well over 100 flights later...
