Pulsery2k1 Do you have an objective opinion of covering with the glass vs tissue?

well to fly off the grass I added flaps - and will use diffrent packs

I 'm using a little phone to do this so it kind of hard to look
back throught the tread .

I belive the CG was approc 8 1/4 " or approx 210mm back on the wing
section
or just sightly past the removable esc cover. ?????
thanks we will fly tomorrow and want to be sure to have cg correct.
Use the first window behind the exit row as your CG and you're fine. Literally pick up the model normally (forget the upside down stuff) with two fingers (one on each side of teh fuse with your fingertips placed over the first window aft of the exit row. If it balances "about" there, you are fine with flaps.

I made tiny progress on mine. Decided on lights and am swapping out stock retracts.

Speaking of, these were never mounted so if anyone is interested in the set, pm me. These would be just the stock servoless retracts (with metal trunnion) with stock struts and wheels I don't think I even cycled them but will to verify they are working.

Obviously I am wealthy which is why I have my own private runway- I am so wealthy, I'm not actually responding to this thread, I have "my people" do so on my behalf.

For you Seattle people, my "runway" is in the Issaquah highlands across from the new hospital in the unfinished neighborhood if you care to test your flying skills vs. curbs.

Thanks , you think you remember but I did the balance last year
and had marks were the batterys when - but with flaps and diffrent
batterys I wanted to be sure.

I only did the outer flap , I checked you flap photo's but was
worried flying off the grass might cause extra stress on the
mains -with part of the mount cut i didn't want the gear to come off
I'll do the inboards when I get back from Joe Nall.

Typical "East-Sider response....Probably walks around sayin "I got two Windrider 737's bitches!"

Takes me a whole month just to save for one 3" x 3" piece of faux Oracal 651. It's been 9 months which means I have 9 of 32 pieces of the yellow/black checkerboard.

Long way to go



I kid...

Actually, I have three Windrider 737s...bitches. I just haven't built the third one yet.

Smokin Joes (et al) Seattle based 737 guys: When are we going RC 737 flying?? My private runway in Issaquah awaits an RC 737 invasion...

Be awesome if we can (eventually) do this with the locals!

Got the busy stuff ahead of me i.e. raising the nose gear, then spoilers and flaps. Speaking of flaps; trying a slightly different approach where I'm hoping the flap will move back and out before moving down. If that makes sense.

If only the rain would show up, so I get stuck in doors rather than finding time to and head down to a field and fly since as you know, the weather has been remarkable here as of late.

Also, hoping to meet up with the indoor guys that meet up at Sand Point and mess around with this 20" profile 747 I recently made:


But I know, excuses excuses

Cheers,

Neil
