General Discussion / Re: MAKING CHILI THE KRCM WAY
« Last post by Deerslayer on January 17, 2019, 10:15:07 AM »
Warning! Clickbait alert!

I got suckered into looking at this, believing that Mr. Chili was really going to live up to his promise of delivering the recipe. Narf! The closest you get is to view the picture of him with that smug look as he pours some mysterious concoction from a plastic bag into a witches' cauldron.

          "Fillet of a fenny snake, In the cauldron boil and bake; 
           Eye of newt and toe of frog, Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
           Adder's fork and blind-worm's sting, Lizard's leg and owlet's wing,
           For a charm of powerful trouble,
           Like a hell-broth boil and bubble." .

Methinks that he doth read from Willy Shaky Speare and findeth the recipe! He moved recently, so who knows what potential ingredients he may have found in his new lair? Has anyone seen his kat Sam recently?


 We don't even know if this whole thing was staged, do we? Who is taking the pictures? Could she be the REAL architect of the chili?

Well, ya gotta admit, whatever it was made from and whoever made it, it was pretty good and they deserve credit.


P.S. We demand "proof of life" for poor Sam the kat! A picture alongside today's newspaper or newscast from a reputable organization may suffice. Or else ...

OK, I promised to divulge the recipe for my KRCM chili con carny, so here it is in picture form.  Enjoy making and eating it. If you have any questions or comments please, feel free to contact me, or just leave a response here.


PS, Yes it is a big pot, and yes I am standing on a stool.

Plans, Projects, Building and Flying Tips / Foamy Hinges
« Last post by Deerslayer on January 12, 2019, 09:30:06 AM »
As I prepare my latest store-bought foamy for flight, I would like to pass along something which I only learned perhaps 4 or 5 years ago and which may be news to some others.

Many foam planes come with foam hinging for the control surfaces. This kind of thing is very strong, sometimes extremely stiff to bend.

 It can become reasonably flexible - if you prepare it properly. Do not think that you have to haul out the knife and start slicing at the hinge, or chop the control surface out in order to re-hinge with (dog forbid!) CA hinges or even Robarts-style pin hinges. I have many hours of hard flying on a number of planes with the original hingeing and no breaks.

The trick is to "season" the hinge.

1. If the controls are already hooked up, unhook the control rod from the surface to be worked on.

2. Work the control surface slowly and gently, back and forth, perhaps half way to their extreme positions. You do not want to tear things apart. Do this a few times.

 3. Then, gradually increase the movement to reach the extreme positions, cycling it slowly a dozen or more times.

4. The hinge is now through its initial break-in. You can continue this deflection more rapidly, Don't go overboard on this and rip things apart!
Do this dozens of times. Some say a hundred - it can't hurt.

You now should have a very strong, yet flexible, hinge that will not unduly load your servo and still resist any tendency to flutter.
 
In some cases, such as a couple of sailplanes that I own, you will find that the hinge line is at the top (probably)  or bottom (not likely) of the interface between the structure and the control surface. In that case, at perhaps Step 3, you may wish to bend it all the way up and prop it or tape it in place overnight. The hinge will relax into that position and you will find that it becomes even easier to achieve full deflection up and down.

Good luck!

There were a couple of "Facet"-like models in there!
Surprise, surprise! Barnaby Wainfan and his wife Lynn are both aeronautical engineers and he is presumably still an Adjunct Professor at He co-authored an excellent NASA report in 2004 regarding low aspect ratio aircraft ( think Facermobile!). It was good reading, the PDF is the last (No.6) in this Wikipedia entry:

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wainfan_Facetmobile

While you are at it, Google him and check out his resume (PDF). Majorly impressive,  continuing into current times!

Here is an excellent NASA document which I found in another forum. If you find it too lengthy or difficult to understand, just enjoy the pretty pictures!

Plans, Projects, Building and Flying Tips / Re: The Flypaper Foamie Challenge - 2019
« Last post by ganguy on January 06, 2019, 01:22:30 PM »
Great news!  A third participant in the Foamerama has presented his entries, our own Terry Haley with two great 3D models with great paint schemes!
So far we have 3 entrants and 5 models going forward. C'mon you stalwarts, get in on the fun. If you want designs, there are tons of them on RCGroups-Scratchbuilt foamie thread.
Calling Dwayne, Roger, Harold, Wilf - get on it! Build a fun foamie and we'll have a great day! And hopefully there will be food as well.
See if you can beat this - https://youtu.be/6-gcvsB9bB4
