New iterest-meat tray foam, KF wings and Park 180 motors

Since completing and flying Big Bertha, I've worked on a few minor projects. I've mostly been flying what I already have.

On a winter vacation to Cancun, I took a copy of Park Flyer Magazine. Without a lot to do, I read every word of that mag at least 10 times. This included the build of a scratch build foam wing, powered by a tiny Eflite Park 180 motor. As soon as I got home I built one. Boy did it suck! Oh I got it to fly but it was really awful. So....what was I supposed to do with that cute little motor and speed control? Well, I had a whole package of 3mm foam and this little motor. In a short period of time I ended up with a little pusher powered slow flyer. Another neat thing about the pusher was, the KF2 styled wing I build for it. (took a whole 15 minutes to build) and it flew great!!

30 hours of flying and I finally wore the poor little motor out and pretty much fatiqued the airframe. I have just put the finishing touches on serial number 2, (a slightly improved version of the origional. I sort of made the nose pod look like Glamerous Glennis so I'm calling it the Bell X-1 EZ. The LHS called this evening and my new Park 180 has arrived. With any luck and calm winds tomorrow evening, I'll be flying the the X1?
