KULBUTIN (a.k.a. AEROBAT)

Charlie Newington's White Horse (in reverse) overlooking Cheriton, FolkestoneA favourite model of mine, the Mad Slide by JR Models, after that of original designer BPLR in France, flew to the happy hunting grounds in the sky and this is its replacement. I call it an Aerobat although it's actually a KULBUTIN. It has massive movement on the elevator +/- 75 for so called 3-D manoeuvres. Hitec servos throughout (5625MG-elevator, rudder-325HB wings-5125MG), a 5 cell Sanyo NiCad 2400mAhr battery pack. It sports my favourite Ritz 1-30-10 section at 1.8m. span and, I'm guessing, weighs in around 2kg. for the waterslide decal graphics I used Photoshop.
