You know Pete Warlick! The older guy that drives the ford f-150. He is the one that always has the bigger planes, and you can see compost hanging around him

I can maybe meet Joey next week since I will be in Perry some.
Since they were given to me, I cannot sell them to you. I will break the flying buddy code! You are welcome to take them though!

Hey, I appreciate the offer and it is mighty nice of you. Im not even sure Ill make it down before SEFF. I hope to but dont know.

You will probably want to do a little float flying when the pretty springtime weather comes back around.

If you still have them next spring and dont plan on using them maybe we can work out a trade for something.

I do appreciate your kind offer.

Jimmy

Not having any personal experience with this plane, I need some help. Do you think this would be a good first time balsa build? If yes, why? Or if not, why not?

See this thread for reference. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1117471

Thanks!

Frank

Absolutely! It was my first. Parts are well cut, the construction is carefully thought out and the parts fit together like a big jigsaw puzzle. Not only that, the instructions are top notch.
It is also fairly easy to cover as there are no really complex curves or areas to try and fit the covering in..

IRKS Electric Event!

Well guys,

I attended a super nice Electric Fun Fly from IRKS (Indian River Kontrol Society) RC Club in Cocoa, Florida.

Lots of local vendors came to show their products and one of them was James with his wonderful Millennium products and James allowed me to take a close look at the Steerable tail wheel he sells as I was a little confused on how to install but, it turns out it is super easy!

I like to Thank James one more time for being my SPOTTER during my RC flights with my Park Zone T-28 and F4U models at the flight line!

THANK YOU JAMES!!

I enjoyed watching James fly all of his models and there was someone else flying some of his Millennium RC Models.

It was a terrific time watching all those very expensive, large Electric Ducted Fan Jets all the way to the micro Electric models that flew just as good.

Also, and most importantly there was someone from RC UNIVERSE filiming and taking pictures while all of us flew! Stay tuned for the latest news from RCU!!!

There's the thread!

That's great to hear! I'll definitely add this to the beginner's build list.

Thanks,

Frank

Thanks man. If I see an opportunity to come down and fly with Joey Ill shoot you a PM.

Got my plane covered today. It turns out that the red Ulltracote I already had was flourescent. Oh well

The pics dont really show how bright it is..I use these colors on most of my heli canopies cause i need all the help I can get seeing and keeping them oriented..I got glasses last year too...Getting older kind of sucks...but definitely beats the option..

Hopefully I can finish this thing in the morning and get it in the air

This is the first plane Ive built since 1999 and the first Ive covered with Ultracote. I like Ultracote much, much better than Monocote. When I hit it with theheat gun it just got smoooooth quick. Even the tips in a seperate color were super easy to get smooth..I like Ultracote.

Will windex work for putting the SSX decal on the wing panel or should I use a couple of drops of dish soap in a pint of water???

Cool video. When the prop would windmill it sounds like a motor trying to restart.

Nice flying field! Do you get to use the lake for your seaplanes?

Thanks, Rcproptester.

I got it ready to go this afternoon but it rained off and on all day with high wind..just a nasty day

With the smaller packs I have, 1350-1500mah it balances a 1/2 inch behind the spar. With the 2250 mah packs it is nose heavy but should fly fine. I cant wait to try it

I wanted to mount the tail servo tray behind the wing so that the pushrods werent right in the way of the rubber band hooks on the on the wing supports but it seemed to be too tail heavy with the HS 65 servos there. I have the aileron servos mounted under the wing on the back side of the main spar

Do I need to program in some aileron differential? If so, how much? I set up a flaperon wing..so I can play with spoilerons and flaperons a little bit.

Just need some more of the beautiful weather like we has all of last weekend..
