IMSF mtg November 20

IMSF Meeting
Tuesday, November 20, 2012
7pm at Salt County offices, 2100 S State, room N3005

Officer final nominations & elections
Nominations from October: Tom Hoopes, President
Allan McKay, Vice President
Steve Reed, Secretary/Treasurer

Bring any new airplanes (kits, new building or built models), gadgets, tools, etc. and tell us about them
Can you build without a plan? Scott will give a short history and current progress of an 3D CAD designed 1/4 scale wood sailplane from Australia, the 1950's EON Olympia IIb

Sirius Charge software update by Tom Hoopes
This is for the new design with clear lenses (see previous posts for more specifics) like the ones we had a club purchase on several years ago
Free of charge, just bring your chargers

While Tom is updating the chargers, I will have a computer, projector and screen to show online videos of interest. If you did not send me the link to a "best" video related to airplanes (indoor, gas, aerotow, scale, racing, DSing, 3D, full size, etc.), which only 1 person did, then bring the link to the meeting or watch some of my selections.

Conducting: Scott Hinckley, Vice President

Officer final nominations & elections
Nominations from October: Tom Hoopes, President
Allan McKay, Vice President
Steve Reed, Secretary/Treasurer

There were no further nominations, so those nominated above were elected as the 2013 IMSF officers

Allan Mckay showed a reinforced Radian fuselage that he had cleanly broken the nose on—spruce reinforcements in the nose back to the wing; carbon on th top and sides in back of wing, and in the fin. Weight added was about 1 ounce.

Tom Hoopes showed the Castle Creations BEC (Battery Eliminator Circuit) for using Lithium batteries for receivers and servos. The output voltage can be adjusted by .1 volts from 4.8 to 9 volts using Castle Link on a computer. Tom also explained some of the software changes made to the Sirius Charge that he would be installing later.
Dick Bean showed his new Fr3aK DLG that is Made in the USA. Hollow molded wing (glass/carbon with Rohacell core). Less expensive than European, but not cheap.
Scott Hinckley talked about the development of the ¼ scale wood Olympia IIb design out of Australia. Designed in 3D CAD, 95% laser cut parts with balsa skins. He brought the fuselage put together but not glued; photo attached. No, the kit is not yet, and may never be, available. A build log will be on RC Groups later.

Sirius Charge software update by Tom Hoopes
For those who brought the new model Sirius Chargers to the meeting, Tom installed his latest software updates.

While Tom was installing the charger updates, it was planned to show some interesting YouTube glider videos. This is an occasion where everything went wrong. The projector and screen were ordered 2 weeks before the meeting, but did not show up. Links to the videos were ready to go, but the Guest wifi in the building would not allow streaming. Soooo, I have included the annotated links below (link, what it is, time). Next time (?), download YouTube videos and have them on the computer; don’t depend on someone else’s wifi.
