Thanks, Dag
Yes I did plank the fuse as well as the nacelle's Theywere done with 1/16, but that is a bit thin after sanding. Also for a great filler go to an autobody supply house and get some Icing. Its super lightweight and smooths great. You can even brush it on.

I hear that. A comment from a guy passing by was that he thought the plane grew a bit while they were holding it . I know I did.

Hey Dag,

I rode out to Tuscon last week and snapped these at the Pima Air Museum. Just a bit of inspiration, not like you need it...

B-36 Plans

Hello Damon,

Your B-36 looks Great and I have no doubt that it will fly great. You will no doubt receive a lot of requests to bring it to events.

I know you are busy but would it be possible to get a copy of your B-36 plans at half the size your making? If they can be printed that would be great. Just let me know the cost. There is no rush for this request! Thank you.

Got an e-mail asking about my PZ F4U flaps I made.

Attached are a few pics.

And.... Youtube Video of flap test.
F4U flap test (2 min 16 sec)



The F4U now has a 161 flights and all on my ThunderPower packs. And my ThunderPower packs still hold a huge charge, actually I can't tell any difference from when I bought them. The video was from last year the day before our 4th BBQ and Airshow for the neighborhood.

And my junked up biplane I use for the airshow.

Thanks, Dag

And don't give me any heat about flying over the houses. My neighbors all love my planes, and I only fly foam planes at the house.

I love that paint job, if my skin ends up being a total pain, then I will have to put paint on it like this one.

Very cool pics.

Thanks, Dag

Hi Gary,
PM me your e-mail so I can go off line with this. I will make available to anyone who wants a set of drawings. I call them drawings and not plans. They are drawings with all the parts, but no directions on anything. The drawings contain, fuse, wing, nacelles, V-stab, H-stab, BB-doors.

If I have to plot the drawings on paper I might have to charge for materials, but the drawings are free. I am busy as many of you know so it is best that you PM me and I can start a list thru e-mails.

Rock Onward all,

Dag

This forum is really funny.

Just had a guy e-mail some awesome accessories links for H2's, and what he did to his H2 to get better gas mileage. I may have to look at what he did to his. I had no idea there was so much stuff out there for H2's. As I think many of you know I only need a vehicle to pull a trailer, and to go back and forth to the airport. I only put about 5-8,000 miles a year on a vehicle. My Avalanche was needed so I could pull a trailer, I got about 19 on the highway, and about 14 in the city. Pulling a trailer about 14 highway, and 11 city. The Hummer pulling my trailer gets about 13 Highway and 12 city. So as you can see when pulling a trailer no big deal, and that is at 64mph with CC on.

I had no idea there were H2 forums, and guys here following both.

It is cool how many here really care about my well-being.

Thanks!
Dag
