Hey Guys,
Just wanted to pop in and say "HI". Long days here and not much time for the computer.

I'm going to relax now with a barley pop and watch the game

Best of luck to both teams!

Geese oh petes I've got some back reading to do.

Real,
The MXS looks awesome!

Jim,
that Decathlon is begging to be flown with smoke

Rick,
I hope your doing well!!!

Blessings Y'all!

Jay

First thing I think about with fireworks, is a drive by shooting. Been there.

Where's my "Barley Pop"?

Crap, I missed the Superbowl again.

Gaui Hurricane 500

Received the stretch kit for the Gaui 425 today. I ran into an issue right away with the blades. The hole in the blades is 4 mm and 3 mm in the grips. I put it all together and I will work on an adapter tomorrow.

Dave,gr60xl v2 for motor.. should pull it around nicely. Dont start thinking boats.. traxxas has one sick puppy on the way powered by 6s but its still not out yet .

Jim,if i dont destroy it on the maiden i'll post some video and thoughts,right now im pleased with it,its designed for 30cc gas but putting a outrunner on it isnt difficult and theres a couple minor things that will make battery changes and e-power more convenient for the plane,probably beef up some parts of the airframe for the way i fly.. im not easy on planes. The decathlon looks nice,i havent gotten the scale bug yet but the high wing planes can be really relaxing to fly and make great ap platforms.

There was some interest for a build thread so i figured why not,lots of pics to load,but if you want a more detailed look at the plane while its going together heres a LINKfor the build,the plane was $270.00 on sale and some have set up these planes for $600.00 and under minus 6s pack and radio. Looking forward to flying it.. prior the biggest planes ive flown have been 55'' planes and they cost well over $600.00 to get in the air.

Ivan,

Great pics there. I guess I didn't realize that the Gaui 425 was bigger than the Trex 500. Huh! Or was that from the stretch kit? Some small brass tubing from the LHS may help you on the 4mm and 3mm difference.

Dave, the first pic is the Gaui 425 in 425 mm form next to the Trex 500. The blades are the same length as the 500 and it is similar in size. The Gaui is made to be stretched all the way to 550 mm blades so the boom diameter is larger than the Trex 500. The length is also slightly longer in 425mm form than the Trex 500.

Real,

That Gr60xl v2 is wicked. You'll be hovering on the maiden, nah, take it easy on the first pack anyways.

Just kidding on the boats. But never out of the equation.

I went to the LINK you posted. AWESOME pictures, and I see you weigh every part too. Personally, I weigh more than I should. LMAO!

I saved the LINK to keep up on your build.

Excellent....

Ivan,

I went back and looked again at all the pictures. NOW, I get the picture.
Must have been that "Barley Pop". You know that JAY is an instigator.

I did get a couple flights in with the 450 and 500, but weather is still flippin' rainy and windy.

Hi Jay, getting close now to play with the P-51. I just got the servos, ESC and I have a motor from the T-28. But I will need to wait until I move in to have the garage room to spread out and do the balasa work you showed me in the fuse. But I am getting closer.
