Hey Guys, How have things been going? Sorry bout not being on here in a while been super busy with work and the kid. I haven't even flown in over two weeks. And I am on step eight of the RC Aholics Anonymous. I might just have to slip off the band wagon though.

Quick question Dalton what motor did you use for your EA Bipe?

Thanks Thomas

Hey Top,

Good to hear from you. Yea, sometimes life gets in the way of our hobby.

I used the 2212-13 motor, the same as the single wing. That's just what I had in stock.

I'm on my way to fly full scale with my son this morning, we have a Cessna 152 booked. He's always wanted to fly, just the two of us, and today is the day after all these years. He goes by Top Dawg as well, see here... http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1373183

Sounds like the two of you are about the same age and are a lot alike. He's calling me, got to go....

I'm back!!! We had a great time and enjoyed our first flight together in a Cessna Areobat. He wouldn't let me do any aerobatics. Maybe next time.

I took a many of lesson in a 152 aerobat, 6341H. When you stall spin them, you see the ground spin through the top of the overhead windshield. Its good stuff.

I know. Years ago I would do a spin come out with enough speed to do a loop and come out of that and do a roll. Fun stuff. When my son gets his nerves settled down we'll do it again.

Dalton glad to hear you had some fun.

Yeah life does seem to get in the way of hobbies way to often. But that is why they call it Life. You just have to roll with the punches.

Thanks for the info on the motor.

You can't spell life without a big old IF right in the middle. That's Life!

Hello Guys,

I hope everyone had a great fourth of July break. I did. We ended it at a private party with a fireworks show that was performed by professionals. Well, that said, during the show the firewroks fell over in the direction of the crowd and fireworks were exploding everywhere! A lady next to me got burned but thankfully her clothes didn't catch on fire. Wow, now that's entertainment!!!

My wife and I, my two children and their spouses, plus my two grandchildren were there, and thank God none of us were hurt. You just never know about those fireworks. What a party!!! We'll remember that one.

Anyone else have any excitement for da fourth?

Dang. Now that had to be entertaining.

lol

Had a little dinner with my immediate and some extended family. Got to entertain my one month old nephew for a few hours...no other place Id rather be.




Ok, I had a vision today.....................a fresh perspective on a proven concept.......how about a biplane-biwing(?) viperjet......I was thinking pusher but puller might be kinda neat. elevator and elevons only.


I think it sounds good, at least the way the voice in my head explains it to me. lol

I stole someones hand drawn three view and biperized it. lol
