Touched at the fast and generous response to the call for an additional club
trainer. Talking the the relevant people off-list and will get back. looks like
we shall be OK but if there are any more offers please get them in quickly.

The club could have my Wot 4 trainer as I have another one still in its box
awaiting build. Let me know if it’s suitable.

I have available, for free, an old (built 1980's) aerobatic 4 channel trainer
balsa and film ex IC converted to electric (I called it Flame) that I used to
teach my Grandson after high wing trainer. Complete with servos and motor. Not
a lot of space for large battery I'll have to check what size will fit. Photo
Also a MFA Yamamoto 3 channel control airframe ex 40 IC and would need a
modeller to add a motor or engine. Wing foam solar film covered no ailerons but
could be added (optionally reduce the dihedral). Fuselage fuel proof but of
course gum engine oil in need of cleaning off. Rudder needs one hinge
re-gluing. It would need a modeller to fit out with servos and complete I can
take photos. It is clearly not ideal. Let me know what you think.
Hopefully you can get more suitable ready to fly. Similar model image an

Does any generous soul have a spare four-channel electric model doing nothing
which we could use as a club trainer?
(As part of the drive to boost membership we need to offer training to new
pilots, on a club machine with a buddy-box. We already have the Mentor with
Bryan and Rob is offering his 3-channel Radio Queen for trial flights. Two more
4-channel machines would put us in a good position to cope with any likely
demand with a bit of slack for breakages. Keith has one additional 4-channel
machine and buddy-box set-up in preparation. Mike A has put together a
buddy-box system and the point of this appeal is that we're looking for a model
to go with this.)
Come up with a spare machine and a club logo and you win Member of the Month
(in a good way).
