This Tempest is built by Brian Hoddy, Norway. Brian used the Ian Bailey plans, Mick Reeves Screwtracks and will probably use a Super Tiger BGX for power. It took Brian 3 years to build the Tempest (on and off the building board). The Tempest is not flown yet, but will hopefully make it's maiden soon. Brian's other hobbies are flying LARGE R/C sailplanes and fullscale SAAB Safir! Check out Brian's website for some stunning photos on large R/C sailplanes (in Norweigan).



Brian and a Swedish beauty, SAAB Safir!
