Afternoon Martin...is it the Gail 202 Mantis?

Good call on the rubber band aircraft Trevor - I did think about it as a form of power, but really only did a cursory search, and then by chance I stumbled across the Duracell plane and went that route instead

OK, mate.

Clearly not a Lycoming so a European machine, Ken?

Not promoted as such, although it appears to have short field capability.

I have found something (no name) with the registration LY-XNR.

Am I right?

That shows up as an RK-3 Vejas.
