Albatross Letov L-39 P.S.S.

A quick look at the Berg Blog and you can see the BERGIES are all very enthused with the PSS event next weekend at Volksrust.

What really stands out is the wide range of aircraft types that will be seen on the slope during this event.
With only days to go its time for final finishing and setup of servo's , balancing and radio programming, then its off to the slope to throw these planes ..they gonna fly or die.

I finished of my sons Blakes plane this weekend and although I only started it last weekend its the first one RTF.

a bit of "out of the box thinking" here I know its going to belly land so to protect the control arms I set the servo's up in the fuselage jet nacelles and direct drive to the control horns on top of the wings.

This is a smallish plane but the weight is ok at
950 grams all up weight.

The proud new owner with his new toy.

I hope they all fly and we have good winds next weekend.

Nice work as usual Mike - well done.Thats three planes in three weeks - how the heck do you manage?
It took me over a month just to assemble an ARF kit! You've got skills, man. The smile on Blakes face says it all. Check you Saturday.

Looking good Mike. We are going to have a formidable collection of planes by the look of it.
Only 4 more "slapies" to go....
