I finally flew my Fillon Champion sailplane….I built this a while back (2019) but never flew it…Darn FLU!
I knew it was going to be a challenge to launch and was worried about the launch on maiden flight.
The build was such a challenge that I really worried about its 1st flight.
Thanks so much to all that helped me with advice and encouragement on the Build.
|Over the Weak Signals field, LaSalle, Michigan|
Thanks are to Tom Boice and Ron Wyatt for helping me out and test flying the Champion.
Flew fairly good but needed the CG moved back from the plans. Flew very fast.
We flew it in August and the Toledo club field during a SAM contest.
I just could not have done it without these guys. The BEST….

He is building this for the 2022 SAM Champs in Nevada. He speaks of building this with a friend who has CNC cutting capabilities and his friend Johnny "Giovanni" Berlin and his Dirty Harry pistol.
È in 3 pezzi perché altrimenti non riesco a trasportarlo negli USA. Il mio contenitore per modello è lungo mt. 1, 29 max.
La corda dell'ala sono 36 cm. E lsuperficie ala sono 90 decimetri quadri. Il motore è un MVVS 8. cc diesel.
Per il prossimo anno , mi piacerebbe che ai Samchamp ci venissi anche tu. E' una bella settimana. Nel 2019 c'era anche L'amico Berlin . Un gran ridere quando dalla sua auto tirò fuori una pistola che sembrava un cannone. . Mi voleva regalare 2 proiettili 45. Gli ho detto se voleva farmi arrestare all'aeroporto.. 🤣🤣🤣
Caro Thomas. Ti saluto e spero di incontrarti il prossimo anno a Boulder City. Un abbraccio cordiale.
