Pretty cool gift, I bet it made him feel good to give it to you.
He was so proud. He had the garage door closed and had his convertible Mustang in front of the door as he reminded me of what I had said. He said that he wanted to give me a convertible. I ask if he was giving me his Mustang and he said no and hit the garage door clicker. When the door went up, I couldn't believe it.

Everytime I miss my EA's I just go for a drive.
I've got to get back to building. Maybe over the holiday.

I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving!

Began covering last night with monokote... this thing is awesome! I mounted the rudder about 2 inches for my steerable tailwheel and the elevator is in the middle. I built the fuse 3 inches length and width . Total weight. so far 3 lbs and 6 ounces but no landing gear yet the motor was in my trainer and weighed a little over 7 lbs and after I propped it up and did some fine tuning my trainer was funner to fly but not exactly stunt material. The nitro ea should be avesome losing over 3 lbs I will post a pic in just a little bit

crashin,
When I was looking at your wing it looks like it has an undercambered airfoil. Was I looking at that correctly?

ButYeah you have a good eye!! I drew up a symetrical airfoil and when I made it look like a long teardrop I went with it. I can't wait to fly it, hopefully tomorrow I have a few bugs to work out but I did a taxi run and this thing is gonna haul butt.

Thanks for the video of the Jet Man, Buddy. That guy has more than the local golf course driving range.

I am but my 9C will just have to hold me over a while. Heck, the 8 with the free upgrade to 14 channel is a great option with reach.
We are minutes from the PA boarder, leaving the high winds of the mid west behind.

Indoor huckster and f3p ETOC qualifiers next weekend!

Here is my little contribution to this marvelous Ellipso designs...
I'm planning actually to do the Waterman Aerobile which is called the Ellipso Aerobile.

I was wondering one thing regarding the rudders, is there a particular reason why these where place in the wing as opposed to be just at the tip like the Waterman Aerobile?

I actually build the Waterman profile based on this site and free plan: www.flyrc.com
Here is the link to the Aerobile profile: http://www.flyrc.com/mrslil

Here is the link to my building thread for this plane: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...2#post19922455

I was planning to redo it with a full fuse and larger wing chord to have more lift from it. Since I had severa crash till I had the CG alright, the build became too heavy to fly with my motor/prop config and it gets pretty hot after a flight.

So now I will redo it with a full fuse and probably do it with the rudder on the wing tip. But will keep the overall building technics of the Ellipso Aerobile.

I'm looking forward to have this bad boy going. From my build once CG was correct it flew very stable and I was pretty pleased with this plane. Hope the new version will fly as good and stable as I'm planing to do aerial video from it.

Whish me luck!

Ron, you ever get a chance to re-size those slick plans to 40" or so?

Hey Bob.... Just got back from my TDay trip to Illinois last night... 13 hours of high cross wind driving bliss.

What wing span were you looking for? Here is a 40 inch set, I think that is what you asked for?
