Well today's clustermess is courtesy of the US Postal Service (Wait, did I say "service" ??) Seems my covering material left Gurnee IL 8 days ago, traveled to Charlotte NC, and is now on it's way to Dallas TX.....Did I mention I'm in Memphis TN ?

I don't have any words for this situation (well, I do, but they would get me banned from RCG) So I changed the color scheme for the glider..white with red and blue shoulder stripes, black trim....Pictures soon

Klemm L-25: The German aircraft manufacturer introduced the Klemm L-25 in 1928. The airplane had a long sailplane like wing and used all wood construction similar to 1920-30s sailplanes. The L-25 had quite a few variants and powerplans. Throughout the years Klemms have been powered with ABC Scorpion and Bristol Cherub 2 cylinders, Continental and Lycoming 4 cylinders, radials like the Pobjoy Niagara, Salmson AD-9, Siemens, Diamlers and BMWs as well as inlines like the Walter Mikron, Hirth and Argus.

In the US the company Aeromarine license built Klemm 25s for the US market. They were powered with Salmson AD-9s which were imported by Aeromarine and later had LeBlonds. In the UK a slightly modified version was produced as the B.A. Swallow. In total at least 600 were built but with many built by homebuilders, its hard to say exactly how many have flown in total. Today there are still a lot flying in Europe and a handful in the US....Continue Reading

Hayden-Clark Timebuilder: I cant believe I havent done a writeup on this airplane considering I own it, but I realized somehow Ive passed over it.

The Hayden-Clark was built in 1931 in Visalia California. It was put together by a shop teacher and one of his students at the Visalia airport. I believe they had the wreckage of a Jenny as the entire instrument panel was out of a Jenny and quite a few fittings and other bits were Jenny as well. Somehow they managed to get their hands on a brand new Salmson AD9 radial to power it. They completed the airplane and it was test flown by Sol Sweet who was a well known pilot in the area and was the founder of the Visalia airport.

Sol reported that the airplane had lovely flying characteristics and that it would recover from a spin hands free. Amazingly, the builders managed to get the Hayden certified through the CAA group 2 approvals. They got started on building two more of them, this time with two seats, but they were never completed. Which makes the Hayden-Clark a very rare breed of one-off certified airplanes.

With the depression in full swing, there was no money to back the building of more airplanes so the only airworthy airplane was sold off. Pansy Bowen, a rare woman pilot in the 1930s purchased the airplane. She was cited in a registry at the Clover field in Santa Monica California stating she was on the way to Cleveland with the airplane. Whether she made it to Cleveland or not, I dont know. But eventually the...Continue Reading

I liked the Freewing F-5 jet, but it was to small for my aging eyes so I decided to convert it to have delta wings.

I programmed the AR636 stock receiver that was installed in the 2018 June Nite version and noticed maximum bank angle of 90 degrees left and 60 degrees right. I dont want to trust the 636 chip and will go to the AR637T chip for now as it has so many valuable features. The 85 degree down flap angle is great for vertical 4455 degree dives to to the runway and with appropriate up elevator and timing a spot landing can be made with 5 training attempts for the newby club member.

Using Satellite finder as battery operated field strength meter for RC.

I wanted a device that I could use to compare transmitters to one another as a reference without actually connecting them directly to the transmitter or antenna. I first tried using an old field strength meter in the past but the fact that there was no amplification inside the meter. The power SWR field strength meter WAS DESIGNED with a power scale for 10 or 100 WATTS, the meter had very little movement and some transmitters didn't deflect the meter at all. I found a solution. I needed something that would handle much lower signal strengths and cost next to nothing.

Recently assembled the Microheli semi scale S300C kit with a three blade head and had a great morning flying it along with the Ken Luo Bell 47G and the heavy cruiser UH-1 Huey gun ship.

I typically run upgraded main motors, more recently the very good aliepxress silver can 2627 motors in both 3600 and 4200Kv. the 4200 really give these guys some serious legs. The Bell is running the slower speed 3600 and that actually suits it quite nicely also.

Huey has a ZTW unit, great torque and spins the modded 300X rotor head and 245mm CF blades with ease.

the sportier of the bunch is the 4200kv powered s300c with triple blade head, very spritely performance and quite agile.

I often run my own twin esc as these are more reliable than the 230 V1 units, the V2 esc is a big improvement and can be tuned with BLheli software which is a big bonus. Boththe Bell and the S300C will get replacement twin esc, the bells tail is not happy and the stock 250cfx escs are not a nice match to this heli. Just waiting for the 25 amp hobby wing esc to arrive and will use a 20a little bee pro on the tail.

On they bench is another Ken luo kit - the SA316B Lama which will get a three blade head, and an align 250 MD500 unit. the align fibreglass shell is heavier and I'm considering using one of my upgraded 250 CFX units to power that. Still deciding what rotor head to run on the MD500, no one has a readily available 5 blade unit so will probably settle for a three blade on that as well.

anyways, some park fly and tuning videos.

Das Ugly Glider - Part 6

Got the motor and folding prop fitted and balanced, installed the battery and ESC, checked the weight so far (31 oz), and then put her on the CG balance.....right smack dab where she's supposed to (20% of MAC). I figure that the covering will add another 2 ounces (9.5 sq ft) so the estimated AUW will be 33 oz. Projected wing loading will be 33 oz/ 3.41 sq ft = 9.67 oz/sq ft.....Couldn't be more pleased
