First blog entry. Been flying since April. Progressing into flying sport planes.I've my 48" Skywing Sbach. Have a build thread on it on here. Looking into getting an Edge 540 glow powered as my next plane. I've been getting pretty wild with the Sbach and haven't had any crashes yet. So time to advance .

It's with great pleasure I can announce that my application for Chartership has been successful.
I am now a recognised chartered engineer (Licensed Engineer) to those across the pond.

The biggest benefit. .. A lovely little bonus to spend on more model aviation....

Hello people,
I have a big problem with my drone (F450). When I try to fly off the ground, the drone goes into one direction (backwards) and everytime Im afraid it flips, so I dont continue flying. Can someone help me please? I have already calibrated it to the controller. What should I do? If you don't understand the problem I can try to film it...

due to medical problems, i am not up for discus launch at the moment, and even looking at the sunshine burns me as if i have turned vampire

so perhaps appropriately for the horror theme, it was time for a frankenplane

more about it as the build proceeds over here

oh, and it's halloween...

i already had the idea to take my 1.7m antares 'foiled thermal wing, and graft it to a tepid-liner electric fuselage... not as decidedly frosty as my canary

building the fuselage was a tiresome consideration, and balancing the components would require some careful consideration and planning, which i was lacking inspiration to do

then in a minor tidying shuffle, having dragged out as yet unattended boxes containing some of the many kits i have accumulated, i rediscovered the partially built sig riser which i had been bequeathed from a deceased estate via a circuitous association

the fuselage "box" was already done, and the fin and rudder glued but not sanded; the wing stock was incomplete, and the stabiliser lost to me

more problematically, the plans were awol, even though i could find a low res copy on line, and the proportions were too big for the wing i had to play with

so... utilising what i had, i fudged an appropriate horizontal tail, and trimmed the rudder to lose a bit of superfluous area

kudos to curtis suter for his excellent spreadsheet at his tailwind gliders site which allowed me to crunch some numbers using the fixed moment arms and wing i had to work...Continue Reading

Below is a side view diagram of my initial retract study. The wheel is 3" diameter. The 10" prop comes down to the center of the wheel, giving me 1-1/2" clearance for my grass field. I still have to figure out my exact strut length, but this should get you all started with your own calculations, based on what retracts you use. I'm using E-flite 25-46 size electric retracts, which are used in this drawing. The drawing is actual size.

All -

This is my Gordon Englehart 1936 ARUP rc conversion. The original model was a 24" rubber powered craft, I extensively redesigned the wing ribs. It uses a hextronic 10 gram outrunner, AR6400 BL and two parkzone linear servos.Solite yellow and modelmaster red paint cover it. A 350 MAH LIPO fuels the 4.4 ounce ( 131 gram ) flying weight model.

The first video was made from my cell today during the second flight. The first flight flew out of my hand but after a few seconds went into a tight but slow flying turn. reducing throttle and neutralizing the stick allowed the model to straighten up and come down to a reasonable landing. An elevon end push rod wire had come unglued. At the same time it was noticed one linear servo had " dead " spots and would randomly just not function. A new servo was obtained and that was the cure....Got lucky with this slow, light model which went on to a 20 minute second flight, and many fine flights since.

It was a Sunday Funday for me and my flying buddies. I didn't realize another pilot was videoing this but much appreciation to him for taking this candid video of my final approach to a greased landing in the Number 7 FMS 800mm Red Tail P-51D Mustang. This plane flies and lands like an angel!
