This solves the mystery of what and where that piper cub I have came from.

One of the regulars from the Breweries pub moved cross country and gave it to me.

I've got a kit of that Cub lying around, too, and a Norvel .06 clone... looks like I found my next project!

How does she fly with that setup, anyway?

Ractsaf - very nice Stick there, lookin' sharp in my favourite colours! Sure she flies well.

Cheers - boingk

Simple 400


While waiting for some parts for the Super Pacer, I decided to finish a Simple 400 I had started years ago. I flew it last Saturday, flies very well. Has an Esskay 400XT outrunner, a 1300 3S battery and rudder.

Looks great, Chap! I flew my Cox powered Simple 400 clone several times this morning. They are great sport planes.

The reason I shelved the build for a dozen years was originally I built the fuselage around a Cox .09. I had the idea of having the fastest 1/2a in Indiana. As my reflexes have slowed with age, I decided to put it back to electric. It is a nice sport flier. I have given the model to my son who really enjoys electrics. I like nitro, fuel it fly it, no need to charge batteries. I still have the original plans if anyone is interested.

I don't think it's around anymore, but Ron Daniels was kitting one some years ago. It was set up for speed 400 with a graupner 6x3 folding prop, IIRC. I actually drafted up a couple different versions, one a simple box section fuselage with a wing based on a littlest stick with modified tips, and one based around an ACE simple series constant chord wing and a cardboard tube fuselage. Unfortunately, I've never gotten around to actually BUILDING either of them. Maybe I can kitbash something using the fan from my Eflite MiG 15...

That mini stick reminded me of one I made up several years ago. Span was 41 inches, area 320, weight 22 oz with a PAW .061. It also flew with a PAW .033, with a long take off run, and with a PAW .09. The only picture I have is one Randy Randolph published in Flying models.
