I stand corrected on the foam fuse issue, patently there are far older people than me on this forum :D :D

I have to say that both Weihes (is that truly a plural - or is it a brace of Weihe ?) look really nice as does the Lo100. Gliders are so much prettier than 'powered' models (that's surely a contentious comment :lol: )

As it's German, I'd guess at Weihen....... but then, my abilities in the language peaked at gaining a B at O level 41 years ago.

But I agree that there are lots of pretty gliders I'd like to build....

That´s completely correct, in German the plural of Weihe is Weihen.

Finally ready for a test flight - pilot added as well as some coloured trim on the fin & rudder. ....
Pleased to report test flights went very well - shall post pics soon. Those wings sure do bend on the bungee, even with fibreglass tape reinforcement on the bottom of the wing :lol:
Cheers,

Alas, my beloved turned the video off when I launched and on again when I picked the aeroplane up after it's flight :shock: :oops: ......................... A camera-woman she is not :oops:

Best to stick with the head-mounted GoPro I think :lol: :lol:
