Buy, Sell, Trade or Give Away / Solartex

Anyone have Solartex they want to unload? I'm looking for "natural" or "antique".  I need a lot!

Reg,
What brand of battery, what charger and has this pack been crashed or damaged in any way?  Also, how old is it?
Thanks,

Martin

Thanks very much Jen. I forwarded the link to the TEMAC guys from Toronto.

"Form follows function"  Right, Gary?

I doubt this is a bone yard. Everything is a single sample - more like an outdoor museum.

I just sent off an updated roster to Rolly so it should be up in thew next day or two.  We are at 66 members now.

That's mine - I was holding off posting an up-to-date roster as there are so many people renewing at the beginning of the year.  Perhaps it's time again.

Here is the edited version of the video Mike took last weekend. (He also helped me with the editing - it's fun)

Yep, I built it. It's a "Hopper" designed by the late Fred Reese. It was published in RCM in the late 70s IIRC. Yours has a geared Astro 020 brushless motor.

Is that scale Gord? (I noticed the camouflaged finish :D)

Well, Gord's suggestion that we try some Formula One pylon racing has it's first, (I think), design started. A biplane of course!
This is a Mong Sport modified for racing by Dallas Christian. He won the Biplane class at Reno in 1969. I have always liked it and Depron is perfect for a quick build.
The basic fuselage is 2mm Depron in a box, with a formed turtledeck to the rear. I carved a form out of balsa and then heat formed it in three steps on a 200 degree oven. It is the first time I've tried this technique but it only took a couple of tries to do it. Here's where its at so far.

Reg, I've got a couple of NIB AR6410NBL bricks I ordered by mistake. I paid $20 + tax and would like to get $20 each. However, if you shop around, you can order them even cheaper.

So Gord - 16" span and a single cell battery? If 16" is a minimum, then things can't get silly.
(Hmmm......I have some decent drawings for the Lil Mongster biplane which won at Reno around 1967.)
 I think that rather than worrying about a race, we might work on just getting a "parade" together.

Are you planning to go with brushed or brushless? Personally, I think using the guts from a Trojan, Sukhoi or P-51 would perfect - 16" span or a little larger would be perfect. You don't need a lot of speed - there would be plenty of crashing anyway!

Thanks Mike. Looks like some nose weight would help.
