This is a Test...............What am I building?

I needed another project to build,while waiting for some better weather. It never rains in California!!!!!!!!!EEK.

What do you think this is? I've made some changes and added some personal modifications to it. Just having some fun building something else,but making it a little different.

I love building. I think I'm about ready for a scratch build of my own personal design,using a combination of different planes. I have an idea in my head on what I would like to build. I don't know if it will fly very good,but it will be fun to build. And it will at least look good.....until it's Maiden at least

I modified the fuselage adding 6" to the tail moment and fiberglassed it. Custom wing tips and tail feathers. I have a couple other minor things to do. Lots of sanding still ahead.

Oh,and it will have a motor.

So lets see who knows what this one is. Most of you experienced builders will probably know what it is it right away.Or if you have built one in the past you will probably know.

Oops,I forgot to attach the picture.

Except for the tips, the wings look like they are from the Drifter II (or Easy Breezy).

I don't have any idea what it is, but I'm pretty sure it's not a Gnome - or even based on one. I have a stock-built 2M Gnome waiting on new covering right now, and nothing in the pictures resemble it.

The V Stab profile is similar, but the rudder in the picture is much smaller.

Here is a tip!

Here is a tip. It's first initial starts with an "S" and with the modified wing tips it will be 112"

Contest last week

You mean the CVRC club contest or our Fresno Classic at CVRC field? Doesn't really matter the answer is no for either one. Never got off the winch line for our contest and did not come down for yours as we are looking at a new field so busy with that.

Build something with a hook

Hey Eddie,

When you going to build something with a hook and take it over to the winch lines? You gotta do it some day!!! The tail on your beast doesn't have a riser profile so don't think it is a Riser unless you are going to paste a Chrysalis tail on it and also the wing tips and elevator don't have the right profile. Maybe it is an Olystein with bat wing tips!!

Dennis,

It's a Batardized Rizer. The Captain got it right.

Captain,for that you win.....................................Nothing: D

Dennis are you going to come to our Bent Wing at the end of the month?

I'm seriously thinking of building a "Houston Hawk" If I do I'll make it pure.I love that plane I've been waiting for the wood fuselage that Shrederman is designing for it. When it becomes available I'll build it.

Batardized Riser

I have a Riser here to build and it looks nothing like the profiles you show but I guess you could use any set of ribs and call it whatever you want. I even went and got my Riser plans out and the tail is nothing like it. So you fooled us and I will probably see you at your Bent Wing at the end of April. May come down next week and fly maybe Wednesday or Friday.
