The 4 stroke still needs an adapter for the carb and a new exhaust setup.
I'm in no hurry to get it done actually because I really have no time to run it and play. Much less try to race it.
One of these days I'll get it going again.

I built this one using the wing of the "Spadet" from the www.spadtothebone.com website. The fuselage was a modification of the one from the FlatBat. The rear part of the fuselage was a child's plastic basball bat, and the fron part was a piece of aluminium from a junked ladder. It was powered by an old 0.61 motor. You might have noticed that everything looks bent and crooked. That's because this picture was taken after the machine cart-wheeled after flying through some tree branches when I was coming in to land. I didn't have any pre-crash pictures of it. too bad. This airplane was easy to fly, slow and relaxing. The flying characteristics were similar to the SlowPoke on the simulator. I built it in March 2005, and crashed it maybe 6 weeks later. It was while flying this airplane that I learned how to actually keep the airplane on the runway while landing. For me, that was an improvement.

I was fortunate enough to get a free website from rcgroups at http://fprintf.rchomepage.com where I have been keeping a flying blog for the past 2 years.

Check it out... http://fprintf.rchomepage.com

Heard from PDX (Vic) that the Scorpion II shipped yesterday! Thanks Vic! I bought it on behalf of JEB21, but can't wait for it to get here so I can fondle it a bit before I pass it off to him. I myself have a new (to me) Carbon Banana coming from Surfimp on Saturday. Can you tell I like carbon?

... A BLog is what's left after you cut down the BTree.....




Sitting at work here, bored as all get-out... I brought my RC Bike in but I can't find time to do the work on it that I need to do...

On the list:
1. Remove components from the experimental frame I was working on and put them back on my CrazyNutRacing frame that I KNOW works....
2. Send my Novak ESC back to Novak for repair...
3. Eat lunch (Rather work on my bike)

I also brought in my HPI R40 Nitro... needs a new throttle servo... the wires got chewed up.... Oh well.. another day's racing down the tubes thanks to Gremlins...

The NATC race is quickly approaching so I must get my equipment smelling like roses in a hurry.. (or at least as close to roses as nitro can smell)

Working on some new parts with Dave from CrazyNutRacing... but if you are on the RC Motorcycle forums and you don't look at my blog... you'll never fnd out...as I may or may not post secret info hidden on here.......MWAH HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!

My first Mustang was a little tricky to land because it would drop a wing if you tried to hold it off for that smooth touchdown on landing.

This time I cut the ailerons about 2 inches in from the wingtip and added about an inch toward the fuselage.

Then I put in two HS-55 servos - one for each aileron so I could have flaperons.

By using the aileron/rudder mixing and the two free mixes on the Optic 6, I was able to get the flaperons with the existing Berg 4 receiver. Ref. the thread.

https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...ns#post5171328

Use about 50% flaps in your radio give or take 5% depending on any roll tendencies. I ended up with 55% on the left flaperon and 50% on the right for trimmed flight.

This makes quite a difference for landing - now I can get that nice touchdown without catching a wing. It is also fun to do slow flybys with the flaperons down. It goes without saying that the fast flybys are also fun.

Setup is a Himax 2812-1080 outrunner with 2" Dubro spinner, APC 9 X 7.5 SF prop, PHX 25, and a TP 2100 3s lipo.

Happy Flying! Jon

Ok my names mark and im an rc addict

ive been into rc since I was a lad with cars but always longed for a helicopter and a scale microlight since my dad started flying one when i was around 8 years old
having been in the back of the microlight more times than i can remember i got a 'feel' for how they fly and handle.
believing a scale rc version was not possible until I decided to build one from scratch a few years back!
having only seen ones that were pretty unrealistic i went the scale route and made a one off, since then ive helped others build them (even if one of them wont admit it due to ego problems, hi Mario arguello of Mia rc! )

Anyway, i got seriously bitten by the rc bug in about 2004'ish when a friend of mine took me to a 5th scale car meet at mendip uk and here is where I first seen the rc bikes that have took over my life!
I didn't even know they existed in hobby grade let alone racing ones!
I got home from the race, did some quick research and ordered a fm-1e R1 straight away, I just had to have one!
being into real motorbikes for many years these we're right up my street!

having an addictive nature this led to many many more rc bikes being purchased, nitro and electric,
I think at one point I was approaching 20 hobby grade bikes! nuova faors, thunder tigers, oto's etc and being an engineer i also made some of my own.

i then decided that i would learn to fly helicopters so went the usual route.. sim, little co-axials, twister fp, etc

Man....sometimes I just cant get going at work, y'know?..

I need to fly...this light lift last weekend, ugh. I shoehorned a lot of planes in the Corolla for nuthin'. Brought the Zipper to work today so I can fly at Secret Spot (or secret-er spots...) after work today. I need to build a Zipper that would be a trunk-plane. Probably 54" (note: Corolla-size) span, glassed, reinforced or otherwise reengineered tail group (am I the only person who breaks the tail every time I fly now?) with a cheap radio (got a bunch of attack -4's) and cheap servos (modified with the Birdworks kinks) for after-work stress relief. That way, it wouldnt be the end of the world if the plane gets snagged out of my trunk, or some similar near-death experience. Foam wont hold up in a trunk too long, and it needs to work in medium light lift.
I cant believe how much flying affects my mood.

Hi:
Here are some pictures of my Zero which had 729 flighte . I flew it in the California Air show team . It met its end when I pulled up sharply from a low inverted pass and the wing exploded because of too many negative "Gs".
