Hi Guys:
I have as complete sheet of FunCub decals if someone wants to refresh their ship!
These sell for $22 USD, make me an offer.

This is the beginning of the big Reg Watts online swap meet. Buy or swap, and many free items to come.
But first:

Four 28-size Cheetah electric motors:

•   2814 – 6, 1400 KV, 40 A
•   2814 – 8, 1400 KV, 35A
•   2814 – 12, 1000 KV, 35 A (two motors)

These motors are used but in excellent condition. They are now selling for 29$ US at BP Hobbies
Make an offer to buy or swap

Gord got me off on this, so I'll show progress here, 36: WS, all 3/4 inch Home Depot foam. This all I've done so far. I used the foam cutter on the curved sections as it is hard to cut a neat curve with this material.

Just a quickie, but here is the maiden flight!

Plans, Projects, Building and Flying Tips / New Skycart Project
« on: January 06, 2017, 05:13:41 PM »
Well, I'm building a SkyKart like Gord's except, mine is not Mario, it will be piloted by, none other than Wylie Coyote, and in the right seat - you guessed it, the RoadRunner!
Got most of the pieces cit out, starting assembly, but thought Gord might comment on my attempt at the wheels. They are almost 4" diameter, and 3" wide instead of four. If I don't get fed up with my foam cutter, I might add the other inch.
Photos to follow tomorrow

General Discussion / Phoenix 5 Simulator

Could somebody walk me through how to download and enable a user-made plane profile? (other than those already listed on the Phoenix model menu)
There's lots of info on RCGroups which never seems to work out for me. HELP!

Not much footage for such an important event but many club members were present to wish him well, and share a piece of that great cake!
Also, Gord was able to maiden his F86, a few seconds of that too!

Everybody knows what this is, I'm a bit late to the party. Built this with 3/4 inch insulation foam. It flies well, I haven't trimmed it out yet, but the maiden and a follow-up flight went well yesterday, without incident. C'mon Gord, let's go at it!

This is a foamy, 48" WS, tractor,  just got the first pieces cut. It is not perfectly to scale, but close. I hope to have it finished in time to attack some of the warbirds in September. The finished job below is not mine and I hope to do a better paint job - mottled grey. Too bad Hanna Reich won't be around to advise us, Gord, so you better get ready!

General Discussion / Plane in tree
« on: July 29, 2016, 09:21:40 AM »
Well, I haven't done this for a couple of years, but my T28 Trojan is about 35 feet up in a neighbors pine tree. The tree might be climable, but not by this 79-year old, and I've popped my shoulder again.
Any ideas folks? I've tried all the old tricks in the past but she's pretty solidly embedded, wing off. Both of the club aluminum extension poles aren't quite long enough. maybe today's wind might help.
If not, I've got a 20 ft extension ladder which somebody might be able to reach the plane using the aluminum poles.
Reward offered - a dozen beer for adults, or $25 cash for a younger climber.

 "Tower, Airforce 292 ready for takeoff!"

Gord, batteries are on charge, as soon as that wind dies down, it's maiden-time!

This is the Durafly kit, not too hard to put together with very few instructions. Mods to the kit were:
  Tailboom strengths with internal CF rods
  Air flow vent opened behind nosewheel
  Modifed pilot height and added instrument panel

A few photos of the work party, unfortunately missing many of the 20+ volunteers who turned out for the day.

Starting before 9:00am and ending at about 3:30pm, we were treated to a hamburger and hot dog lunch with appropriate (!) beverages.

The turnout was all the regular senior members, except for Levin's dad, so all you younger guys , come and put in an hour or two next work party!

Lots of brush and trees cleared to tidy up and give more space for visitors and some improved visibility. Unfortunately I missed the log-splitting and firewood-stacking part of 6, but we are all set for next winter with  a really neat stack of wood.

I lost a pair of sunglasses in case anybody found them

This is a great plane which can be built in several styles and materials, or bought as a kit. There's tons of stuff on the net about it.
I took the easy was and got the parts from Deerslayer, and glued them together. Today I'll be putting the control stuff on it. Here's an interim photo:

This just another of my practice videos with the new camera. Tried this one with a screen hood, but still found it hard to track the plane.

here, Rolly is flying Gord's Sbach, while Dave Fasken worries about Rolly crashing into the tower. It was a nice day, but cool. The field is hard in the middle and awaiting flyers!

I'm still learning the camera, but here are a few minutes of Gord's flying go-cart.
