Hmmn, not so sure how relevant this is to anything but here goes.

I've had a few years lately that have been a little bit... rubbish, shall we say? I've also reached middle-age (pushing 40 now) and all of the things I've completed and done so far have, well, fallen flat. I had a bit of an epiphany a couple of nights ago, have spent the last few days filling in forms and making pleading visits to the local art college where I used to work, and now it looks like I'm finally going to get myself an edjumecation just for me. That's right - no more care work, no more teaching (except for volunteering at the local mosque and European kids on their summer holidays); I've applied for a BA in commercial photography.

I'm pretty hopeful I'll get in - 4 years working at the college I've applied to, 2 of them with students on the lens based media courses, a solid portfolio* and the admission tutor being my old lodger should all help - so with a bit of luck I'll be an impoverished, indebted student this time next month.

*Only stumbling block is my portfolio. I'm confidant that it's good for an amateur/semi pro like me, but I'm also nervous it's not good enough. Like I said, I've worked with the lecturers and shared a house with one of them: that also means I know how high their standards are.

To add to my excitement I've just got back from my favourite pub where I met a couple of other guys who're doing the same degree I hope to do (I'll find out early next week if I've got on it) and they're exactly the kind of people I want to study with; also in their 30's, got kids like me, one is a very pretty single woman...

Wish me luck!

Had a great crowd on this last Saturday. However the wind was weak and out of the East. We all hugged under the popup tents and swapped RC stories. Ray Alonzo came over from the West coast (Tampa) and joined us for some slope flying. Because of the heat and poor conditions we left early, about 1:15PM. On the way down the hill, we found a storm cell South of the hill was “pulling” a Northerly breeze over the hill. DJ and Jose had already discovered it and were having a great time. We all stopped, found a 10-12mph wind, joined up and flew until 1:50PM. We congratulated ourselves on our good luck and then headed down to the Peachtree for lunch.

Picked up a T-Bull a few weeks back (Impulse buy!, Impulse buy!!) and had it on the backburner, decided to build it and finishing out my XR311 while waiting on parts for the Globeliner. Just running aTEU101, Futaba 3010 servo, full bearings (AVIDRC) and the stock Mubachi which is quite capable in getting those front wheels up in the air. Only used a few stickers as I wanted a low sponsor puller tractor look, painted the driver in a Herbie-ish suit (Love Bug or Love tractor?) , in hinsight I should'a went with the whole Herbie paint scheme regarding the body too, oh well, I'll order another body soon enuff. I might put something like " Farm Haulin'!!" on the nose of this one. Overall fun and easy build and a blast to run, just hope the racing dude can survive a tumble. This makes a good companion for my L Box and M Pumpkin.

Kind'a looks like something Bernie & Krass (CarToon's,,,anyone,,?) would make, 'cept they'd have some blown Hemi with a wing or somethin'. Also,,, a word of caution about those spikey rear tires.

1. Always use a stand of some sort while binding trans to receiver.
2. Never set a spikey tire rc tractor in your lap while setting esc/trans endpoints.
3. Wear pants not shorts if you do the above.
4. Try to use "DogonediggityDang!!" rather than other expletives (like: Sunova !!) when such said vehicle with spikey rear tires burns a mark in skin above your knee.

YOW that Stung and kind'a Stank (like BBQ'd flesh) a little!!

Been also looking at the GF01 but I want to run the Jimny body and wheels, wonder if the wheel base is the same?

I got back into the hobby in 2004 after a 14 year break. During that 14 year break, I was a Marine, got married a few times, had two great kids, and was a software engineer at Compaq and HP. After the craziness of being a Marine and having little kids evened out, I decided to take some time for myself to enjoy something I loved. That's when my wife got me a P-51D for my birthday.



I found that flying the plane was like riding a bike. I was easily able to maiden the plane and get it flying without any issues. I flew that old P-51D alot, but wanted to be able to do ROG take offs and landings, so I bought the Hobbyzone Cub (not pictured). I flew that plane so much I melted the gearbox and needed to have a replacement sent! On a trip to the LHS, I found the Super Cub and bought it immediately.

Of these old planes, only the Super Cub still flies, although in an OD green livery to look like an old L-4. I was looking through old pictures today and thought it'd be neat to post a picture of the planes that brought me back.

If you took a break and came back to the hobby like I did, what brought you back? What kind of plane was it?

Hello again! Gunther is coming along nicely. I have found that painting him first before gluing him together is way easier to get all of the details painted. I have tried to keep his uniform colors authentic as I go along. I like to use Testor's paints but if anyone has any other suggestions I am always looking for new options! Here are some more pictures.

have had the blade 200 for some time now and its very good just a bit small for my poor eyes, so why not do a 450 size helo. after all the work on the f45/450 should be easy. will start with a hk dfc kit (its cheap so if it goes pear shaped no big deal) will use the 200 for the rx and esc ,tail motor the blades will be plastic/carbon fibre seim-sym as all the large scale boys use them (good lift/head speed ratio) the tail motor will be matched to an etrem tail unit as I want to gear up the tail so that the tail motor has less work to do. the swash will come from a fp helo, still looking at the present ,have one but not very good ok for mock up. even though will use the 200 esc this unit will only be used to drive the 40 amp esc for the main motor( control output) but will power the tail motor. will have to make up links from servos to swash, and from swash to dfc haed. will use digital servos mg which will need to be quick going through hk list at present when I have all the bits will thke photos of the build and list all part numbers spec in case any one wants to do the same

...that Frank Zaic mentioned Northrop Flying Wings in his 1944 book "Model Glider Design"? I have a reprint (orange cover) though an original would have the same material. The tie-in to Jack Headley for the reader is that J.W.H. worked at Northrop some 20 years after the publication of Zaic's book. On page 93 (of my copy edition), Zaic starts the discussion of 'Flying Wing' and the characteristics that, at that time, were known. The juicy bit is on page 96.

Zaic says:

"When thinking about dihedral we should be sensible and stick to ordinary "V" design. Just remember that we are just beginning to develop model "wings" and we must not complicate the design. (One of the reasons why we have been able to keep ahead in model design is that our models have been simple and built from balsa. We did not have to spend months making one model, only to have it crack up, as many boys did on the European continent). Rumors have it that Northrop "wing" tips are going up."

The context of Zaic's rumor spreading was the effort to provide lateral stability to a flying wing. Remember that in a previous blog post (June 21, 2014), I attached pictures of Jack Headley's full size plans for a Northrop N9M glider. On the plans Headley notes "NO DIHEDRAL BUT – BUILD WITH TOP SURFACE FLAT" Just above this note, Headley also has "WASHOUT, 3/8" AT TIP". Washout is used to improve stall characteristics of aircraft.

Well, Labor Day weekend is upon us and Soaring USA has such a great sale, I decided I needed to pick up a lite condition TD ship, ... a Pulsar Pro 3600 RES. http://www.soaringusa.com/Pulsar-Pro-3600-SP-SFT.html

The Pulsar was on sale for 20% off AND an additional 10% off for the Labor Day sale for a total of 30% off, ... cant argue with that, ... now can you!

Very nice quality and fitment of all the parts, not a flaw on her. She sports a 141" wing. One thing is for sure, ... she is lite, ... as you see in the pictures, (no electronics) she weights in at 34.5 oz.
