With young kids growing up and
wanting to build something themselves I found back the drawings of my first
'controllable' model from the time when I was a bit younger.
This design was drawn by Paul Tupker and published in the hobby magazine 'VT'. That is why this plane is called the 'VT-AirRacer'Build Pictures
In those days I flew the plane with a screaming Cox black-widow with high nitro fuel, small props and ear-popping RPM.
This time I used the 1976 design
but added some modern propulsion: Brushless motor and LiPo battery.
First flights where made with a verry small Robbe-Roxxy 1815/25, a 5x3 prop on 3S. This setup is sufficient to fly the VT-AirRacer but not powerfull enough for simple aerobatics. So the search continues.
