1/2A pic

Heres a photo (at least I hope) of some of mine. 1 House of Balsa Mustang 4 channel Super Tigre X-.11 powered. 2 Bill Evans Scimitar with Cox td .o2o. That's the blue flying wing. Has been radared at 58mph level 68 mph in a shallow dive!! 3 One Cent .010 design, fly's great a real blast at 5 ounces ready to fly. 4 Ken Willard SE-5 peanut scale .010 bipe. More a mantle piece than a flyer.

OOps wrong one you can see the wing has been moved up in the fuse this was because my wife is my lancher/caller and it is a lot easier for her to lanch like this also the white upward mark on top of the wing near the trailing edge was for the torque rods to slide through now for the top.

First Gullows conversion - Triplane

This is an old photo of my first Gullows conversion. I retouched my friends hand out of the photo. It flew just find with a TD 0.020. My subsequent conversions were more scale. It came in at about 8.5 ozs.

Spad XIII

This is my most recent project. The paint job was done via an injet printer. I wanted to build a model powered by my Gmark 0.030 and scratch built this from old Sterling plans. One of the great things about the Guillows and Sterling plans is that they give you patterns for all of the parts. I love these types of plans. You can also scale the models larger or smaller by zooming the plans at Kinkos.

This model came in at 10oz. Unfortunately, the Gmark doesn't pull it around very well. The Gmark is a wonderful engine but either the model needs to be lighter or I need a bigger engine.

Hobby Hanger Piper Cub

Here is an 0.049 Hobby Hanger Piper Cub that I built using a Norvel 0.049 with a Joker paint scheme (using monokote). The model had typical adverse yaw issues and I once put into a flat spin that I couldn't recover from. The model landed from the spin at such a low velocity that it suffer no damage whatsoever.

Great 1/2a Forum!

Hello all,
Super planes! So many it will take a while to recover! Thought you may like a look at my current 1/2a, the Buzzard Buster. Cox Medallion powered, based on a older plane from the late 70's. Redone to fly better, and last. Over 100 flights now.
