Pretty strong headwinds when flying into the lagoon, that, in turn,  accelerate the plane when it flies from the lagoon..

Very nice video, Mauricio..

(In a similar experience with my smaller planes like the TD 010 and TD 020 driven Sharkface and Roaring 20, I sometimes faced  such headwinds that kept the plane floating in one place like a vulture over its prey lol! ...)

@MauricioB
I have just read this entire thread.
You are an excellent craftsman and I enjoyed the read and step by step photos.
Kim was the first to impress me with his Q Tee and now you have impressed me so much.
We have a small lathe so I can make clunk tanks like you now.
I was impressed how you made it.
What material did you use for the bung?
Did you stick the plan firstly to card to make the patterns?
Where would I obtain a Scamp plan please?
Thank you for the education.
Kim lost his cousin Bill but remembers him every time he flies Bill's Q Tee.
You lost Roberto but still think of him when you build and fly a particular model.
This truly reinforces my thoughts in that model planes are not just model planes but they have history and real people behind them that we remember.
When I make my scamp I will think of you!!!
I hope I do not sound mad.
But I think I am!!!

Woody, thank you very much for your words, it makes me very good to know that all this encourages and drives feelings, because behind each model there is a story.
Now flying in nature takes me to a beautiful spiritual connection, it is something that I cannot explain exactly, it just feels and I am grateful to God, to life for allowing me to live all this.
I will be with you answering your questions in everything you need as soon as possible.
To your questions:
The cap I used is the commercial type used for glass bottles. here you can get them in bazaars of household items. I understand that there you will also get it in a similar store.
The SCAMP plan here you have it:
https://outerzone.co.uk/plan_details.asp?ID=11965
remember that I have modified the original plan according to the steps that I was showing in the forum, you can ask me whatever you want and I will gladly answer you!
Yes, I print the plan and paste it on a piece of cardboard, then I cut out the pieces and hold them on the balsa wood with pins, then I copy the shapes with a very fine pencil or microfiber.

Look, this is another recently recorded video....

Excellent video.
Thank you for answering my questions. It is much appreciated.
I will build it as per plan no ailerons, no throttle to keep it really light and also simple.
A tail dragger version would suit me better as I have a rough and ready flying field.
Yes I relate to the spirituality of flying in nature.
Decades ago I was flying a full size Junior 60 in a huge meadow in mid summer.
I let it go really high until the engine cut.
It did not want to come down.
I also did not want it to come down but it started to hurt my neck looking upwards.
So I lay on my back with transmitter and glided it down over a good half hour as it caught thermals.
I was fully irretrievably in the moment. It was Bliss.
When it was time to land I was surrounded and encircled by curious cows and a lot of them!!!
I never forgot that day. I was alone with plane, meadow, summer sun shine and warmth and the company of cows who were once aeromodellers in their past lives [ thus the interest ].

Woody:
His story - anecdote is beautiful, really beautiful. It's good that you connect like this, in that way with the environment that surrounds you, I think those cows wanted to keep you company, because model airplanes unite and if they were model airplanes in another time, better this way!
The relationship between Cox and Nature is direct, since most of the people who acquired a Cox motor at that time were not part of a club and flew practically anywhere they could, I have seen them on boulevards, soccer fields, fields vacant lots and a few more places. With a friend Fabián, we started that way and that is why this connection with nature that I try to revive is really beautiful and nostalgic.
