Cloud Tramp

My Cloud Tramp. This 22" span classic is one of the rubber models that I would recommend for a beginner (see previous blogs). It is fairly easy to build. Powered by six strands of 3/32" rubber (three loops), it climbs beautifully especially in lift. This gives a motor run of about 50 s. Best flight so far is around 90 s. It's OK under power, but the glide is not as flat as a decent hand launched glider.

And here is a photo earlier in the build of the fuselage, undercarriage legs and stabiliser:
