 Jim Muether, Fourth model of his original Searcher series, Nelson 19 motor, 20k RPM, 33 ounces,  strap down model. Not yet trimmed.

 Warren made two models from the plans Ding presented last month.

 Werner Hoch, Flying Lawn Mower.  About 4 years old, custom designed. Ailerons on handle, elevators and rudder on main body.

 The original had a "motor" made from a coffee can, but it was too tall and caused too much turbulence over the control surfaces.  He trimmed it down to about half height, fixing everything.

 Rudder and Elevator at the back.

 It was twisting, so Werner added ailerons to the handle.  Full four channel control!
 Warren, Kiwi Pup, trainer for grandchildren, built from George's Black Hawk Models.  Had problems with decal, suggested fix is Krylon Crystal Clear.
