I filmed this on my lil camera while in Temora NSW (Austalia) for my 40th Birthday. Make sure you use sound when u watch it it sounds great http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif About 37mb in size.


Aparantly the blueprints are all archived and available to public. Such a damn shame this piece of Aussie history never made it into PF as promised.

Downloading the vid, with thanks! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif
I remember building the Airfix model ages ago, just after its release. Wasn't impressed by it too much then since the speed was only 310 mph or so (in those days I believed the faster the better). But it does belong in PF, great shame it never made it. Might have been almost as much fun to fly as the Buffalo.

Nice vid Tig.

How come though the the props like it's just milling when the planes actually got quite some speed on it? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

Thanks for posting nevertheless, I get the newsletters from Temora and kick myself everytime because I know I can't go http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

It's probably just the camera setting Bushranger. It can only get a certain number of FPS, so the prop doesn't look like it does in real time.
