RIP Old Faithful .... Hmmmmm something in that cause my Hellcat had a similar demise recently

Maybe the Boomerang can be reborn.

No rebirth by me, it was on a suicide mission from the start after annoying me, the flight was only ever going to finish one way, just a matter of how many power dives it would survive until something failed! Splinta is going to rebuild her and put it back into action, she will suit his flying style perfectly, spins like a a washing machine!
Charles, they will come in any colour ya want mate

ran some power tests this arvo and the numbers look like this

4S 3300 pack 12 x 6 prop 609W @ 39A, roughly 110W/lb with a weight of 5.5lb just as a guide. ridiculous, wouldn't dream of running this setup!

3S 4400 pack 12 x 6 prop 378W @ 34A roughly 68W/lb, roughly 68W/lb. plenty of power but not over the top, should make for a good setup.

was going to try with 2S but figured the pitch speed might be a bit low with the current prop for comfortable flying with some reserve. i will order a couple of 3S3300ish packs and see how she goes.

Craig

just ordered 2 of these, 3S3000 20c jobbies, at 240g approx should be perfect for me.

The 3S setup does sound about right. The 54" SPAD does really well with 320W (5lb).

3S sounds good to me mate. 4S only sounds suitable for those requiring a vertical take off He-51. I remember what my Ryan's Daughter was like on less than 100 watts/lb. Slam open the throttle and it was instantly airborne. Had plenty of reserve power though.

hooked up the elevator push rod, and rudder pull/pull, which is the usual plastic coated beading wire and crimps cut from brass tube. the radio gear access hatch is secured with a couple of countersunk screws which anchor into a couple of 3/16 rails in the fuse.
i am not much chop at decking out cockpits so this one is going to be very basic, just the top half of the instrument panel which was made out of some .0020" styrene card glued to some 1mm balsa sheet. the gauge bezelswere cut from styrene sheet and glued in position, the gauge faces are just ones downloaded from the www.com, scaled to suit, cutout and glued in with a drop of canopy glue on top of them which when dry is the instrument glass.

And here I thought I was the only one who flew the Ryan's Daughter vertical Was really exciting for a few seconds. Then I changed motor and battery and had a grand time with it.

The day of reckoning -1

finished the last little bits and bobs, made up the aileron and flap pushrods, the aileron ones are music wire 'Z' bent at one end and Sullivan metal clevis's soldered at the surface end. the lower wing strap was fitted and secured.
i bent some eyelets from the craft store and secured them in the lower wing root section of the fuse with some CA, these are the anchor points for some of the rigging wires. the rigging was then done using the usual beading wire, and crimps. the spreader bars are just bamboo kebab sticks, they are held in position with a lashing of sewing cotton wicked with CA.
The 2 MG 17's are just bits of evergreen tubing, drilled to represent the cooling jacket, a thin piece of brass tube was cut and glued over the muzzle end, as were the flash suppressors which are pies cut from the end of plastic pippets.

time to balance the beast... oh dear!!!! the pack is mounted as far forward as possible and 240g, 8.46oz had to be added to get the 65mm CoG, this shocked me a bit as i was hoping that with the longer nose of the type it would be more forgiving in this department. we have a RTF weight of 5.5lb.
