Most Duracell alkaline battery's would give you all the power that you would need for the plane but the transmitter is the next question. 2.4 has a lower power draw than 72 mhz
and that is a good thing not to mention that on 2.4 you have your own channel so to speak.

I use a Futaba 9C. The radio battery has the same connector as a servo. I can use a Y cable to add and remove a battery if I need to. Connect the new battery in parallel, then pull the drained battery off. Or just run them in parallel for longer duration.

Got the second thermal flight today for level 2 (16:20). First was about 33 minutes, last year. I'm going to try for the 1 hour slope flight too, even though I don't need it now. Still need to finish my landings (7 to go, I think) and contest points.

I have 5 contests in toward Level 2 totaling 4274 points. So I just need one more contest to finish Level 2.

Turns out my "win" mentioned above does not count, but that is OK. Jim Dec of the LSF clarified the rules and I am fine with his guidance.

Good work, Lazmo on your 15 min!

Ed, wow, that is great that you have so many points for the L2. You won't have the problems like me where I really struggled to get the contest points for L3 and L4 (still working on that, need 1150 points from one more contest).

Just getting back into model soaring and trying to pickup where I left off,but in the mid-1970's I did manage to achieve LSF Level 3 with three models being used, an first isuue Oly, an Aquila and a Legion-Air. Hopefully I can get going on the tasks again and get the program completed if LSF has the records available.

As long as you turned in your paperwork, I am sure they have it on file.

Got landings 2 and 3 towards my LFS 1 today despite lots of wind. I seem to either hit it or not- Only one of my LFS1 landings so far wouldn't have met the level 2 requirements!

Was a witness for a guy completing his level 1 tasks today. Despite the wind he had a five minute flight and two decent landings. (one was within about 8 inches!) I think it was more fun than another flight of my own would have been. (We were about to be overrun by many rug rats with (yawn) rockets.)

As a rocketeer and owner of this thread I might have to delete your post here, linc.



I'd think a cat like you would be encouraging of the youth of america doing something aeromodeling related (as of course opposed to say PS 15 or whatever it is at by now).
