After many years the old toffee bomber has been retired! The super 60 has had a good career and dropped many pounds of toffee’s for many kids at many displays.
Retired after long service
This can only mean one thing, a new toffee bomber! At this point I would to thank Horizon Hobby UK for supplying myself with a complete outfit for a toffee bomber, this is greatly appreciated by me and the club’s committee. The new bomber will see action at many club displays such as Delamont and at other local events like the ever popular DMFC flyin in September.
I choose a slighty different style of airplane for the task (you knew that would happen), as much as the 3 function Super 60 was a joy to fly, it lacked for me excitment, so I choose a model called the Ultrastick 60, an aerobatic trainer/funfly, now your talking!!
Wingspan 167.6cm (66 inches)
Length 140cm (55 inches)
Engine Evolution 100NX
Weight 2.7-3.2kg (6-7lb)
Radio Spektrum DX7 & Receiver
Servos 7 DS821 servos
Wing area with quad flap 59.7 sq. dm (927 sq. ins)
We have had to do some modifying to get bomb bay in, but it has worked out ok and hasn’t added any weight worth worrying about the powerful 100 should pull this model about even full off toffees very quickly!
