Ron Treasure is the happy owner of a Liebao glider ARTF EMA0604, thanks to GiantShark.co.uk

The model company was able supply one for the AGM raffle at the Taunton-based Webster Flyers.

The group has over 50 members flying electric only models on Saturday and Sunday afternoons.

Chairman and founder Adrian Whatmore said: "I set up the webster Flyers in memory of Frank Webster a local modeller who taught me and many other modellers to fly back in the 70s. He was a true enthusiast but only had a very short retirement.

"Battery powered radio controlled flight really started to develop 1990s. During this time a number of modellers in the "Taunton area were experimenting with motor gliders and so in 1996 it was decided to form the Webster Flyers. 

"The club is a friendly and informal one, run with the simple maxim of flying electric models and gliders safely."
