The one for the .46 is nice but it has been out of stock for about 2 years.

Hey guys, trying to stay caught up on this thread, barely treading water

kerwin, I have seen that green machine doing both types of flat spins, in person! Awesome shots of the GM in action, thanks!

Ron, regarding that video..."what? I can't hear you!" LOL...that must have been a fun time, the videos Jim posted were awesome!

...

guess he ran out of film before that lipo exploded, huh?

I took some pictures at our B-17 Desert Rat visit and fun fly...a few are attached...enjoy.

I also have a video of me doing the walk of shame, I will (humbly) post that this weekend

Raining outside now, hoping it will be done so I can fly tomorrow. Hoping to have the new motor mounted on the 65" Vyper either tonight or in the morning tomorrow. Weather calls for rain through noon tomorrow; still I chance I can fly at some point in the day....rain on Saturday stinks...why can't it rain on Thursday or Friday or better yet Mondays?

Hey fellas.........nice pics!!! Looks like you both had a great time!

CRFan1........TOO WINDY!!!!!........... I can see rain as being an excuse, but unless it's over 40mph........wind ain't an excuse!!!!! "This thing is gonna RIP!" You want your plane to Rest in Pieces? If that plane of yours is gonna be fast......it would be that much faster with a 35mph tail wind!

See, now I have a legitimate excuse.....it's still raining here! So what do we do in the rain........we go DUCK HUNTING!!!! Yeah baby.......opening day tomorrow!!!! Can you say freeze your balls off? Hell yeah! It's cold, it's windy, and it's raining big time!.......No pink tutus in this neck of the woods! We rage against the weather....we don't bunch it and hang around home drinking tea and eating crumpets!

Kerwin, the leaves are near their peak in Ontonagon and we're getting a hellava lot of wind so I doubt there's going to be many leaves when this front is through! Waldo, might have some color up his way!

No flying to report, no building to report........maybe some pictures of dead waterfowl, tomorrow!

Great Pics Tower and Snowdog what fun was had by all

Tea and crumpets whatever happened to waffles and bacon

Yes winds up to 40 are fun winds up to 50 are exciting winds up to 60 plus is just the coolest flying there is Oh wait,, maybe thats just stupid fun

the only color I have seen is the dingy basement lol actually the wife and I saw 2 fully red trees 2 days ago the rest are all still green. but we got the postage approved for our 1,800,000 piece mailing today now I will only see floresent lights from morning until midnight every week night until we have completed this job sometime in Novemeber were hoping. of course I will be taking Saturday and Sunday off as I can't give up flying day ever and 80 to 90 hour work weeks are way more than I want to invest anyway, so they can do without me on the weekends. Ok back to the grind and then home to load the van for tomorrows festivities

Here are some clips from the test flights today on the Kadet. It was great.

I did not tach the prop. I did measure 8lbs of thrust on the ground using a fish scale. I will test it later with a 15x4W and see what happens.

My video guy was having trouble keeping up with the plane. He is new at it. It was actually clips from three or four flights - we forgot how many but at least three. I ran it out of fuel twice but no problems on landing.

It was very pleasant flying and it was almost like it was in slow motion sometimes. Won't be long until we try that glider tow again.

Wayne, that engine works well with the Senior! Do you have ailerons on that bird? I like the big tires too! Good job!

One wood duck hen this morning.....well, actually I shot two...the other a mallard hen, but the dog wouldn't range out that far in the water and we lost it in the weeds when the wind picked up! We'll see how tomorrow morning goes. Still raining here with patchy sun......typical fall weather.
