If you ever get a chance to see his 3 videos <I bought them all> there is a lot to learn from building, trimming, mixing, from foamies. to slicks, to osiris.

Now that would be soo cool! You wont find one of these at every yard sale, and it might take up some plane space, but I would love to learn something like this.

Parts of this loom came from Northern Europe and are over 200 years old......it was an enjoyable quest putting it together and building all the accessories I needed as well as tying all 450 heddles (the red strings that are hanging from the wooden horizontal rods).....the warp beam is a solid oak log that's 11" in diameter and worked with a spoke shave by hand to near perfection by the original maker! History does indeed come alive!

Not wanting to fly into the sun I launched my little foamie down wind to the north. I launched her WOT in a 45 degree plus angle. She gained 20 ft very quickly but by the 30 ft mark she was being carried down wind very quickly.
Turning her around into the wind she gain another 30 so foot and the winds were much stronger.
I had to dive in a 45 degree downline to get her back down to the 10, 15 ft mark.
This little plane always hovers better in the wind. I had a blast just putting her in a hover and watch her drift with the wind.
excellent Kerwin and All we have to do Is slightly burn a pie or crumple a crust and its a mistake for the house LOL

I like the pucker factor, Isn't that why we do this if you really want a good one, build a twipe and don't put 1lb 11 oz's on the nose that'll get your heart pumpin in a hurry

friend of mine had a plotter, so we blew up the 8X10 sheet until the number one RIB measured 17 inches, and printed the entire sheet twice. Looks great, so now I should be able to cut the ribs out to the size they are supposed to be. should be flying it again in no time!!!!
Excellent news here Billd can't wait to see it come together

Maiden of the Big Stik 60. Take off - Check, Trim - check, landing - uh oh!

The plane was setup very nice, flying nice, and engine running nice. The owner flew it about 6 minutes and handed it back to me to land. I did a couple of loops and started some rolls. After the third roll I came out of the roll but the plane kept rolling. I had nothing. The plane kept rolling and the engine stayed at the same speed all the way to a lawn dart.

I think the power connection at the receiver came out. The servos are strong and could have held the control surfaces at the last position.

Very sad. We worked for 22 hours x 2 people and the flight was 8 min.

Oh yea, only mild pressure inverted for the CG.

Yea, Happy T-day. I made one punkin pie last night. Turkey breast is in the oven.

Still sulking about the Big Stik. It was worse when I built my Harley Wild Stick 120. I had at least 100 hours in it, all my own. Down on the first flight from lost orientation.

Wayne bummer on the Maiden but on the bright side it only takes about 1/4 of the time to rebuild it compared to the actual build

Kerwin go back to bed Pie making is harder than kit building lol

A very Happy and safe Thanksgiving to all of you and you families I am Thankful for everything I have, and especially Thankful for all of my Twistaholic family which keeps me laughing all year long.

Let the pie EATING begin
