Couldn't find the type of frame I wanted readily available. Was looking for a lightweight, high-performance, "True-X," Stretch-X, or Hybrid-X Micro frame with HD video capability in a dual-stack configuration.

So, I designed my own! My first design - the TMac Diamondback Rattler!

Please, let me know what you think. Like it, don't like it? Reasons for either? Let me know! I go over all the spec's dimensions, and thoughts behind the purposeful design wit a flight demo at the end. Check out the hyperlinked Table of Contents in the video description if you'd like.

I personally am very happy with how it turned out and it flies outstandingly! 🤩

In 1987 I built this Avro Anson for the F4C world champs ,at the time I was really into the power competitions era. I thought at that time this was the top end of my building endeavours ,I since learnt it was simply the next step to build more scale models .

All -

A long time friend had this Skychief and was obtained from him. The engine was in good shape except the crankshaft threads were destroyed and many original parts were missing. A parts Skychief was obtained from an RC groups fellow member and that engine provided the original needle valve / fuel tank assembly , crankshaft , spark ignition timer. The refurbished Skychief pleases me. The crankcase is very light zinc or such pot metal ??? the cylinder is very heavy cast iron. The piston has one ring of about 1/8" width. The piston was soaked for a week in ATF to help loosen the stuck piston ring on my Skychief.

Best regards,

jeff

Backstory:

I am creating this thread because I recently learned that URC has officially retired and all my "Build Project" threads on URC are long gone and will never come back

I will do my best recreate what I remember from my thread on URC and share this information here on RCG.

"PROJECT 21" was the very first 1/8 4WD SCT conversion made by Tim Martin and TheJANG at URC in late 2009, here are the original videos created:


Project 21 - Original 1:8th 4WD brushless RC short course truck (2 min 41 sec)

Test Flight - King Kong / LDARC Tiny Wing 450 - Testing It's Slow Flight Capability

Here is a link to the Video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZSxabJpLxIU

I always immediately test how fast an aircraft will fly, however, slow flight capability is very important as well.
My favorite aircraft are those that are aerobatic and have a wide flight envelope.
Let's see how slowly this one will fly ;-)

Back in the 1980's (or maybe 90's...it's all starting to meld), my flying bud Neal and I got a couple of the newly released Cox R/C PT-19's. Made of molded foam, these are good-looking planes, with moderate performance from it's .049 Ranger (coincidentally, also the name of the full scale PT's engine).

We DID experience problems with getting the CG correct...even moving all the gear as far forward as we could, the model was still a bit tail-heavy, and would snap inverted if it's pilot got too frisky with pitch input. A chunk of lead ballast fixed the problem, but gave the .049 still more weight to drag through the sky.

I finally decided to "make the ballast work", and bolted a Medallion RC .09 to it's snout, spaced forward by a block of ply, and fed by a metal wedge tank suspended behind the firewall. The .09 was the exhaust band type, and worked really well...helping with the balance problem, AND turning the PT into a mean little ankle biter.

Neal followed suit...though his may have been powered by an O.S. .10, and we put on many impromptu Sunday pylon races, or dog fights (it was often difficult to tell the difference), with both planes amazingly surviving our crazy flying.

I'd like to get my old relic going for this year's S.M.A.L.L., again with it's .09 engine. The foam has survived in great shape, but the harder plastic parts are turning into cookie crumbs and will take some shoring up to be airworthy.

once i was enjoying a perfect day, no clouds, just catching flies, when noticed a monarch butterfly doing its typical wandering flying, at about 30 feet, when suddenly she began to circle and stopped flapping its wings...and began to climb fast. she had got a surface thermal, the kind of rising warm air, and in no time disappeared. i couldnt believe my eyes. no idea that they know how to make use of those currents.
then began searching and found some data that sounds like sci-fi at its wildest. just look:
monarchs: https://www.google.ca/search?hl=en&s...30.dTuf-K1wNyU
then, as if that is not enough, i learned about other that go even further:

and we are superior species?

Front part of fuselage went together just as the photo plans show. The plans consist of photos and part numbers.

Several have told me that the problem is with the weak tail boom, weak controls on linkages, and being tail heavy. Trying to rethink that part.
