Hi
I forgot to enter my wobbly winged Invader earlier last year, so here it is now. Mechanism is nicked off Ron as are the wing tubes and joiner.. thanks Ron. It’s not quite finished in the photo but it is now and it is a terrific flyer. All moving wings have a different feel to them when flying but are not in the least twitchy and in this case easier to build than twin rudders and a dihedral elevator
Hope you like it!

Sorted Glyn! I really like the 'wingeron' idea as theres nothing at all at the rear - no rudder, no elevator, no hinges, no pushrods = no weight :D I've only used it on the Lidl Glider but it really is an eye-opener, very positive control and so easy to do.
On a separate note I need to tap you about the Wasserkuppe Glyn, who to talk to, rules & regs, arrangements & such... I'm planning a campervan trip this year!
Cheers
Phil

Lucky you hope you do it!
There were no rules as such, just see the guy supervising the model flying, usually at the top of the slope and pay your 5 euro and that’s it. I think he asked for my BMFA insurance but I can’t remember exactly. I think there’s a website for more info.
Check the Museum out too... fantastic!
Germany seems to like model flyers...

Thanks for uprighting the Invader.
