A while ago I became involved in a discussion on a forum with a very talented guy who was restoring a crashed model aircraft and at the same time converting it into a unique replica of a real aircraft.
The whole process was really fascinating to watch and I made this film so that other forum users could witness the culmination of the project.
The first part shows the conversion via a slide show set to music and then its maiden flight. If part one is too slow for you then skip ahead to 3.45 to see it take to the air.
The rebuild was a painstaking process by a guy called Gary brown. The owner and pilot is a guy called Alex Slams. The pressure on him not to crash the model after such a long rebuild by Gary was immense. Just have a look at him after the flight.
