Maybe your neighbor can get your 15yr old to school for you?! (I'm sure you've already thought of that)

Whoa, keep me posted......that way if you bail I won't feel so bad if the drama that's developing on the home front worsens and I can't make it either. It's not my family, but a close friend's....and sometimes when a death occurs in a family some people are so debilitated by it that they neglect their best interests....enough said.

Yeah... not only did I see it.... When he dunked it in the lake, he texted me and said, no worries, drained the water out and flew it with one elevator half.

When this shot was taken <HPP> it only had one elevator half. He was doing rollers an such, hovering and harriers were tough.

This is the Baby Roo SHP custom scheme, built for Arron like his 87" and his 119" Extra SHP Roos.

I assembled the baby Roo the weekend prior to Nall at his house. I stripped everything off the 74 Edge <needs parts> and near the entire plane together <less final set up> in about 10 hours, had a ton of fun doing it. The OS 33 is very sweet to set up.

DOG I feel so bad for you. Jerry needs to have a boot shoved up there where the sun don't shine. Snowy I only hope things work out for the best, I sure am hoping you can make it.
This is all so heart wrenching hearing about you guy's bailing. hell I even put my pants on today and that ain't somthing I normaly do.
BTW you can see momma doesn't have her flowers yet. So I thought I'd put the green machine out there as an extension of our living room. LOL
Just kidding I had to put a piece of plywood down on the deck in prepartion of future flowers so the lady below us doesn't get soaked when momma waters those flowers.

Flight Report

Storms came through this afternoon.... Roll Around trash Dumpster....Took Flight, Crashed in the back yard, spilled nothing .....

Kadet LT 40 / 61
Tail Dragger conversion has the 12X6 mowing short grass. Bent the gear the best we could <wire is tough> with the limited tools. Flys great, good power, needs leaned a little I think. Throttle response on ground SNAPPY, in the air it seems sluggish, like it is loading, but no dead sticks. Even with the short gear, first landing was greesy easy.

Logistics
Have to take 15 year old to school 8 am Friday. That would put me in Cape around 10PM whooped in time for sleep. Would get Sat all day, Sunday I would have to head back at the butt crack of dawn..... No Shot gun to help drive.... I am too old for that.... Still trying to sort out something.

well guys, I worked on the slick all day and got it all finished up except for building the choke setup and I need a couple more extensions for my ailerons.

I couldn't get the motor to run. I got it flooded and then couldn't get so much as a pop out of it despite pulling the spark plug out and drying it off many times and drying out the head as best I could... sometimes I wonder why we ever try to run motors inverted. My buddy Mike was laughing because it was so easy for him to make it run. I did get it to start a few times but I never got to do any real tuning besides resetting to factory positions over and over. I think it just needs to dry out real good. I hope I can get it running on Monday... my shoulder is sore from flipping.

O Nate, 1st off are you sure your kill switch is working properly. You may want to bypass it to start off with. Just how are you securing your plane? At home I use tie downs looped around a tree. That way if she's flooded I can open that throttle a bunch like 1/2 or so.
Don't drain your tank. Also did you ever put a felt clunk in her?
Most gassers when choking you go full choke WOT and flip till she pops. Then choke off and a little throttle. My DLE doesn't mind being inverted.
Good luck.

Yea Nate...what Kerwin said ^^^

It shouldnt be so hard.

Well caught up the 8 pages and got nothin to say! Theres somethin new

One thing......Snowy.....its not the decals that are fuel proof so much as the treatment you give them. Most the time the ink is fuel proof but not always. ARFS seem to print on the inside then apply adhesive. When you are worried about a decal then plan on going over it with some Poly, Balsarite or some other sealer.

Edges can be done if thats all your worried about. Same sealer or some thin CA (dangerous on a new covering job )

If you decide to mess with these liquids just go slow, be careful, have cleanup stuff right there handy and waiting Maybe think small like a Q-Tip around the edges.
