Twisted Crew @ 2011 EWeek/ENall

We had a great time at EWeek with our Twisted planes! Every evening we would start the foamy circus after dinner and every night it drew a crowd. People were blown away with the stuff these Twisted planes could do and how durable they were.

There were about 7 Xtra Slicks there, 4 Telink Slicks, 2 Telink Yaks and 1 Telink SU. There were also several RCF factory planes represented throughout the weekend. Mostly saw the Yak 55.

I think the Foamy Circus peaked on Thursday and Friday. Here are a few pics from Friday:

Great idea. What was the deal with the xtra slick with all the little what look like side force generators along the front of the wing, angled in at each other? Does it help increase the AOA before stall, or does it have some other affect?

And to think I thought we could hide in the shadow for a little longer, oh boy. But seriously great idea Chris, this will allow for our updates and information about new products etc for the Twisted Crew and Company.

Well I'm always down for even more fun so lets start this off right, how about a give away model anyone can win. Our newest most anticipated model we have coming out in the next few weeks will be the RcFactory 32" EPP Edge 540. To win we will need to see the best most dedicated Twisted Hobbys fan picture(s) which must include at least one of our models. By the time the first Edge shipment arrives we will announce the winner of the new RcFactory Edge 540, a complete power-system and also the winners has choice of either scheme. Cool! Best of luck guys.

Oops, I missed your post. Yeah, RJ Gritter and I have been messing with vortex generators to do various things. In this case we were playing with the size of them to determine how much of an effect it would have on a flat wing and how much we could influence roll rate and authority. This test was successful in increasing roll rate but I feel that we need to do more testing on flat plate wings. On an airfoil wing the VGs make a huge difference but on the flat plates it is just minor.

They are fun to experiment with and you'd be amazed on how much crap you can hang off a wing before it starts to have negative effects.

Twisted night flights!!!!!!!!

Brad,
Great idea!!!!!!!!!!! I posted these on the slick thread already but thought i should post here also. My wife and I just thought of a great idea to combine our hobby's. She just had one of her pics published in a magazine so that would just top the cake for me to win a plane with a picture that she took. Other than the twisted hobbys name she stamped on one there is no photo shop done to these. Just alot of practice!!!!!!!!
Thanks,Eric

Signing in to the owners thread.

The new Edge looks sweet!

I haven't flown in about 3 weeks. All this damn rain we've been getting. Plus I've been busy building props for our Halloween display.
