But wait, If Tony's down under and even water flows down the lou the other way around, would it not still be left hand turns? or did he throw off the earths gravitational rotation? oh crikey! ;0)

So if Lockey has thrown off the earths gravitational rotation, will that also make time go backwards? Making him younger?

69 dudes!

69 dudes! (0 min 3 sec)


My mother is doing much the same. 70 this year, 69 next. My Dad, the poor bugger, only made 50 but he packed a lot in

Anyway, your descent into decrepitude seems a long way off

Hey guys, I'm pulling the Se5 apart for paint and decals. I brought some water slide A4 sheets from HK in my last order
I knew the wheels I put on where heavy but when I disassembled it, I decided to weigh everything-
Battery- 1500 zippy-124g
Spinner&prop-....... 44g
Wheels - .................. 126g
The rest of it only weighs 623g!! Wheels are heavier than the battey lol!

Love the pilot! Looking forward to seeing what you come up with

Well the nice thing about heavy wheels is that you can build the wing without any dihedral since those wheels hanging down below the center of aerodynamic lift takes care of any self centering that you need!

Positive thinking there David! extra weight as a bonus... I get what you are saying though, would that be called a pendulum effect?

Now I see why she was so nose heavy! :b
I've completed the base coat and are working on some decals and making some wheels "Whiskers" designed. But are having some trouble finding the nylon bolts that are needed. will have to wait till I can get to the "big smoke".
I've also done some reading about the Se5 and found out there's a set of decals that are dedicated to the Royal Australian Air force.

BTW - I've done some printing and was surprised to find out the 'Pitbull' at100% is bigger that I expected (haven't measured the W/s yet). Plans for the Mig-15 repair AND another print of the Se5 so I can do a low wing racer from the plans.

OK ..... It's decided..... I'm going to do a low wing Se5 next. Same size.
The Plan...
1 Move the bottom wing forward about 30 to 40mm forward
2 Make the wing sweep back about 20mm at the tips
3 V-tail
4 Round off the bottom corners of the first couple of formers making the front more "Warbird like"......streamline.
Always loved this one --
