Nice work on the Mamba!! That over / under linkage is sweet.
I'm bummed I missed the setup of that!!!

Now ...maybe ...???
Jonathon can finish her up.

I had to run the Gathering of the tribes board meeting
Tonight is the Team Captains meeting.
Then two twelve hour days of running the event .
But on the bright side then it's OVER!!!
I hope to get some work done today. This cold is workin me over.


Tom

Nice, especially for power plane take offs in short coupled planes like a Piper Cub. They tend to ground loop big time. Might be nice in a Passer on a windy day as well.

I saw this thread in the park flyer forum. For 18 bucks, I'm going to give it a try just for fun. They are currently in stock from HK. Just takes 6 months for delivery.

Wayne. Will you be offering something similar? If so, holler!

We missed you Rubio, but we understand sometimes Rubio prefers being board out of his mind rather than having plane fun.

I'll post some pics shortly.

Dick! Sorry I missed you in my early post, but thanks again for being an awesome cook and making sure everyone got fed. I can't wait to get my Mamba up and flying so we can trade paint in the sky.

Kieth, you too, thanks for the help with the Mariah.

Thanks Rick, I'm not sure I fully deserve the compliment but it is nice to hear after spending far to many painstaking hours mulling over silly details on a combat plane.

I'm really looking forward to combating as I really haven't done it before. I'll wait and see how I do before I worry too much about Jordan though. Worse case scenario I'll teach Sean to tickle Jordan if he appears to be getting the upper hand.

I do not know if I would fly it, it looks so purdy. The way you are building, it should come in really light on weight, like Daves. It should fly great in light winds when others might not be able to fly.

Show more pictures as you progress

John, the Kite Hill crew has tried at least two or three different gyros. They will be happy to tell you which ones are good.

Dick posesses powers that most of us do not yet understand. Predicting the future is merely one of them.

Dick, I thought I heard you say it was going to be good in Banning today. I checked Windfinder last night which showed no wind, so I decided not to bother bringing a plane. I guess I should have put " where does Dick J. get his wind forecasts?" You could charge for that!
By the way the wind is still good for BB.
