Very nice. Is this a scratchbuilt model or a kit?

Ahhh, well that's good to know, as you can see from my profile I'm in London too, but around to the North.

Can I tempt you into coming along to the Summer Dive-in at St Albans in June.

Details here- viewtopic.php?f=18&t=9547

Mick Cashman?

That's the only one I have on my list. Trying to recall how you got on the list now, perhaps from another forum?

Don't think you've been to a Dive-in yet have you?

Thanks Raven for the info, I am in the process of getting a 3 ft. hull. Then we will go for the full RC. Ill do a builders thread on it. In the meantime here are some pics I found on "Eagletransporter .com" These images taken from the UFO series are in high resolution(Blueray).

I have been in contact with the builder of these hulls and it is my understanding that the 5 ft. version is available but the 3 ft. version is discontinued but I am trying to locate any previously available units for sale by going to "Eagletransporter.com" and posting on their lists for items wanted. I have got several PMs from individuals who have one for sale. I am trying to work out the details. I hope that I will be able to obtain one. It would be an Awesome build. 8)

I havent been able to get one yet but I am still hunting, got a couple of things in the works. In the meantime here is what I am up against. After looking at these pics it creates an overwelming desire to get one, NOW!!!

Raven, You mentioned that you installed Kehrers. I am going to assume that you are talking about the drive motors. I blew the picture up. It looks like brushless pumpjet drives. If thats true can you tell me where to get them and a little more about them.

I wonder how the control configuration changes when those big stabilizers in front disappear after launching the a/c. The whole thing should not be terribly manoeuverable anyway?
