Rapier MkI

One of 3 Rapier MkI's ready for action.

MkII is being worked on, with a few kits made up for guys who want them. MkIII will likely appear middle of this year, depending on the battle record MkII puts up.

Kirk,
Those 1/2A combat planes are too cool! I'm going to have to make one. Don't know if there will be anyone to fly with, but I'll be the first in Dixie to have one.

1/2A planes

Yeah, they are cool. Though we discovered that weight is even more critical on these things than on any other class of combat. (duh, I guess). They fly ok, but the best flying one had a sub-micro throttle servo and had been really lightened. The origional design in the picture is way over-built and too heavy to really fly as well as it should for that class. After I get my A, SSC, B and 2610 stuff ready, I'll be doing a new 1/2A plane that should be a bunch lighter.

Btw, Bill Davis did the origional design, and they are pretty darn good considering how quickly he and Chris designed and kitted them for us.

Kirk: "Not sure this will fly"

But, it did.

I have a second one on the way and will be doing a step by step build on it here in this forum.
Have you flown that with a .15 yet? Seems to me it will be very slow.

My first Open B Plane

I went to Skull Bandits quickly, SPADs are not very effective. However, I was hoping to scare everyone with my decals.

If you mean me, it was a Magnum .25 using 20 percent.

HavingFun2002,
The GRS 72" Falcon with an OS LA .15 fueled with a bladder tank is a very fast SSC plane. It will also out turn almost anything else. It only weighs 2lbs 9 ounces ready to fly and has almost 760 square inches of wing area.

I have been flying Warbirds in SSC but flew the last four rounds of this weekends Valentine Massacre with the 72" Falcon. I like it so much that I ordered three more last night.

I also put a Fora .15 on one. This is a very light, high performance, Russian CL Combat Motor the plane only weighs 2 lbs 7 ounces with this engine. Anyone who saw it fly with this setup on Saturday can attest to what it will do with a high performance motor. I am bring OS powered Falcons for SSC to the Mid Atlantic Championship in August and Fora powered Falcons for Open A.

I wouldn't have believed how fast they are either, I had to see it to believe it.

I have a Falcon 64, I put a .15 OS CL on that and it did great in some test I did this weekend. That may be my Open A ship this season, I used the Falcons for Open B last year. They fly great, nothing can catch them, but any contact at Open B speeds will blow them apart. I'll stick will the Skull Bandits for B, they are just more durable. However, I think my Open A stuff will be Falcon 64s unless I find something better.

I'll be at the Mid Atlantic Champs this year. That's my home field. See you there.

Dave
