Casa

The Casa C212-400 shouldnt be to much of a problem with this nice 3-view drawing. Check out this site for all your 3-View needs. http://avia.russian.ee/index2.html -Patrick

HOLY SH*T

HELLO,
HOLY Crap........That is so crazy. I was just watching the "Discovery Wings" channel, and they had the 415 on. Its the Canadian water bomber, and I was telling my mom how it would be really cool to build one, and then I come on here, and you posted a picture of one. WEIRD.....Those airplanes are amazing, 1,600 gallon holding tanks, or was it 16,000. They can do a run in only 8 minutes, compared to 45 for most other water airplanes...Good Luck on building it. It will rock once done...COOL. -P

EDIT- On TV they called them the 415's not 215. Maybe the one I saw was an upgrade or something. Heres a URL for a good 3 view of the airplane. http://avia.russian.ee/air/canada/index.html THen on the right column click CL-215

Putt,
The 415 is the turbo prop variant, plus it has different wingtips, and some minor variations. The 215 has two P&W R2800 engines. I am really looking forward to building it.

Mine will use probably geared Megas of some type, my buddies will probably use geared Astro 05 brushless motors.

You mean you don't fly all winter?!


Personally I'm just hoping to finish my redesign of my Gravity Abuse patten plane. Just can't seem to finalize its design other than that it will definatly be running on A/F, 6:1 and 10 cells.

Indecison is a killer!

Well I wanted something to take up some time so just ordered a Sig 1909 Demoiselle! Figured I'd dress it up with real wire wheels etc. Should take me a while at any rate! I really love the old stuff and will probably do the rest of the series!

Cargos

Hello,
I dont know what it is, but I have been enthralled by multi engine cargos. My CASA C212-200 airplane Im building is a transporter, and I hope it flies great once built. I just got hooked after watching Tyson's C-130 Hercules made of Depron. WOW, that is amazing. I hope to get my CASA C212-200 done by Christmas. -P

Yup it's here

Well I just got finished picking up all the leaves in the yard (well almost I ran outta bags) and it is getting cold here in Northern VA. Although I do fly all year long, the frequency definitely suffers during the winter months. That winter wind is a killer.

Stuff to build this winter (E power only list)

1) Modelairtech T3D, two actually, one Aveox/Maxon gearbox and the other Speed 600 direct drive

2) Geared Speed 280 powered Rascal that my flying buddy designed. Same size as the Sig Rascal but only 12 oz. What a sweet flyer

3) Stevens Aeromodels Micro Cap 232

4) Mountain Models Switchback (finally took the plunge)

5) Mountain Models Cesna 180

6) Modelairtech Miss Stik (for a buddy)

7) Modelairtech Soarwatt

8) 1/5th scale Sig Cub using Jeti 45/3 on a Modelairtech belt drive and 20 cells. Will be setup as the rare J-3P with the 3 cylinder Lenape Papoose radial

9) Whatever else the local flying crew wants me to build for a few coins of the realm

Good thing I am a house husband so I have some free time. Now whether I actually get to do all this (along with several slimers thrown in for good luck) is another story. SHould keep me busy

You-SO CAL USA.....Enough Said

I don't know about you guys, but when it drops to 0 degrees, and the fingers dont want to perform what your brain tells them to, its time to fly less . Maybe I will get some gym time at my school though. -P

If it's not warm and calm, it's the building season. You don't have to call me a fair weather flier, I came out that closet years ago

In the building queue, if nothing else diverts my attention :

Sig 1/5th scale Cub - long wing, pseudo military colour scheme (N30472, blue fus, yellow wing). (Status - On the board right now)

"Five Star 16" - replacement for the world's most messed around 4 Star 40 electric (mine, doodlebug!). 52" span, simple structure. 700W in a 5lb airframe, somewhat aerobatic (Status - more or less designed. Have the wing ribs already laser cut)

"E-Rotica" - something to make the Five Star 16 look like my knockabout sportster. (Status - will be more or less designed, once I figure out what shape the rudder should be [???] ).

"Aimee" - 10 cell adaptation of a 1993 tailless aerobatic design of mine. (Status - pipedream. But the original only took 11 days from start to test flight ...)

A seven cell, 100" span, direct drive soarer.

Only kidding on that last one

Regards

Dereck
