Pete, The Miss Lynn is not the Sundowner, it just another modified Cassut. Unfortunity it was lost in a practice crash in 2005 or 2006. It hasn't been rebuilt to my knowledge.
The Sundowner is still flying under the Name of Okie something. I can't remember the right name just now.

That LR1 looks nice! I've been working on a new design - Cosmic Wind Minnow. I think this was the original Comic Wind design done by the Skunkworks guys, then someone took it and put the wing on the bottom to make a Little Toni. As a shoulder wing it's great for pylon. I stretched the span, of course, made the fuselage a little shallower (but kept the scale shape as close as possible), increased tail area to meet the rules and lengthened the tail moment. Does that look scale enough?

I have used Turnigy 60 amp ESC and both Castle Phoenix 60 and ICE 50 ESC's in my LR1-A Pogo. Had no issues with any esc's. It is nice to have the throttle for sport flying. I did more sport flying with my Pogo last year than I have in a long time. It is a nice flying bird. I used the Turnigy 35-42-1000Kv with a 9 x 6 prop. Current was down and thrust was up. Takeoff's and landings were short. The video I posted was using that set-up. The 1000Kv motor allows for quite a range of props. I have used from 8 x 6 to 9 x 7.5 with no issues on 4S 2350's. Speed with the 9 x 7.5 and the 1000Kv is about the same as the 1250Kv motor and the 8 x 6.

...Reading along and it sounds pretty interesting. As an old Pylon guy this sounds great especially if you (we) can keep the cost of motors and batteries down!!

Gotta get Heatlie out of retirement!

The airplanes all look great

Archie, Do you use a battery switch to arm and disarm the motor or just let the esc do it??

Dave,

I use a RX switch for the radio and the battery plug for the motor. The hatch is on with magnets so it is very easy to arm and disarm. As long as the hatch is easily removed, I would say that a motor arming switch is overkill.

@smacfe - looks awesome! I'm wondering who I'd have to kill to get a prototype from Horizon

I looked at the pylon spacing and think it'd be possible to setup two pylons at the required distance to run the race at our field. We already run several two pylon races with them spaced 660' apart so it should be trivial to reset the pylons a little closer to one another. The only thing left to do is to get my hands on one, take it to a club meeting and promote the idea...

Count me in! I want that LR-1a from Horizon ASAP!!! Some of my favorite sport planes have been F1 models.

Will Horizon have the LR-1a at the Toledo show this year? When should it hit the streets? Gimme gimme

Denny,

Great to see on here. It has been forever since I last heard from you.

I think you will love these EF-1's. They are a blast to fly. The freaky deal is they are so quiet yet quite fast.

Archie,

Good to hear from you...lots of ole pylon guys on this thread !!

They look like a blast to fly and if you're not racing you can sport fly them. The ARF from Horizon looks pretty impressive...

This must be the Denny Sumner that I used to race with in Q-15 at the NATS about 100 years ago. Glad to know so many of us are still above ground.
You will love this EF-1 class. It will be a bit like the old Q-15s. As a matter of fact, when we began to create this class the first thing I did was to electrify my old Folkerts Q-15. Only difference was the noise.
