AS TO "tip stall"...reason for building in a tiny bit of washout **, yes??

(**) :washout:= angle of attack, at the wingtips, less than near the root.

(**)This, aerodynamically, keeps any stall closer to the root, (based on angle of attack) and thus, retains aileron authority (presuming ailerons are closest to wingtips, as is conventional). In a "deep stall", all bets are off, and aerodynamics are different, of course.

Or, more simply....don't fly too slow!! (LOL....hard to judge, with our models, I realize)...

Yep, washout is a must. Even the full size has it. You can do it with changing the wing section, but a little twist is easier.

Hi Bruce, hope all is well with you and you are enjoying life. On the build I have been progressing steadily on the build, PLANKING!!!! Have reached the time to put in the servos, tail wheel etc.... I found out that the local war Museum has a Mosquito (not flying) so I have been taking many photos of the tail wheel assembly. (Its up in the air so I connot get to the cockpit) Then looked around at what was on offer and what was required to retro fit. Finally decided to make my own. After many drawings, mock-ups I am down to making the assembly for real. Will take shots as I progress and post later.

All best Rod

Hi Bruce:

Looking forward to seeing progress on your project. I imagine that there will be fewer distractions now that "building season" (i.e. Winter) is here? We don't have such a thing out here; we have good (warm) flying weather almost the entire year so sometimes it is a choice between building or flying...

I recently posted some pictures and other information for my 81" Brian Taylor Mosquito. Here is the link to the thread: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1764411

So now I have stuff posted for both the 81" and the 124" versions.

Bruce, have tried several rear wheel assemblies and finall y have one to show you. Still building it so do look at the drills holding it to gether. It fits within the tail assembly supports and has retracts, turning and shock absorber. This came about because the real Rear wheel has a two stage retract. Fist it lifts the wheel up then tilts for final retract. Tried to figure how to do this had all sorts of levers and finally took the easy path so it basically is similar to Brian Taylors with a couple of additions.
Will be away for awhile as going the see the christmas lights in Europe. So have a great christams and I hope next year bring all you would like and hope for.
See you Rod

Thanks Roddie have a great Christmas trip to Europe your tail wheel gear is coming right along you have certainly been doing more than I have lately my new friend has me going and doing every weekend and during the week as well but it's a good thing I'm getting to meet new people and have been out dancing and dinning

rupert the photos I have seen there very nice I think there from time & life magazines photographers and as far as the guy in the front of the B-26 I think he's smoking fag not a joint not many people did that sort of thing back then but being in that seat who could blame him if it was a joint.
