Alexander MacLeod Thomson's Electric Hogbipe
I came by an unopened kit from a work colleague here in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, it was bought, but never started by a fine man, Edward Bresney of the USA, who sadly passed away late April this year.
Changed the basic tail group a little to look like a Bucker Jungmann, added a second cockpit for battery cooling air outlet.
Apart from lots of sanding to reduce weight she is quite standard. She flys very well indeed and with 1300 W (2 BHP) she holds her own in the vertical for a weight of 3kg (6.2 lbs).

Al is currently in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, but calls Scotland home.
