These planes were initially built about 30mins from my house in bembride on the isle of wight I'm guessing that's how they got the name. This is a link to some interesting information http://www.globalaviationresource.c...ory-britten-norman-islander-50th-anniversary/ and a pic of one at bembridge airport. I am very interested in what happens as obviously would like to build one oh and welcome

You can get everything for the spit for about half the cost of the official power pack. You only need a 30A esc, 2215 1000kv motor, 9x6 or 10x6 prop and 4 x 9g or 5g servos. Most of that can be got from Hobbyking, for a lot less than the Graupner set up.

The weather forecast is terrible too, so you won’t miss any good flying days whilst you build. Wind wind rain rain...
The Graupner stuff is very nice but it’s like going to a Merc dealer for parts for your second hand Kia!

I am reduced to mini quads again. I got two plane batteries in on Friday last in a micro break in the weather.
