Great Planes Extra 300


Here are some pics of what it use to look like. The wing only pics are the only ones that are of my exact aircraft. I forgot to take a pic of the fuselage before i stripped the covering off.

DJ, this is a good way to communicate with the club members as well as the rest of the state, region and US in general. I know I follow several forms one of those being the ExtremeLink on RCGroups and the Flying Circus on FG.

I am at work right now but I will post some pictures when I get home later tonight.

We did get a lot done last night at the meeting.

Hobby People EF-16


Hobby People EF-16, its in the shop right now with and esc problem right off the bat. Can't wait to get it back and see how fast it really will go. Flew great the first 2 flights, but just wasn't putting out enough thrust. Distrubutor is going to replace the esc and motor to see if that helps.

21oz auw and was only putting out 15oz thrust and drawing only 20.5 amps. It is said that it pulls 26-27amps and puts out about 25oz thrust and does 80-90mph. Easy to build and hobby town has it for $20 cheaper.

I'll let ya'll know the results when I get the esc and motor back.

Curtiss F9C-2 Sparrowhawk (Dumas rubber kit)


Boy howdy. What a challenge!

Dumas free flight rubber kit @ 30" span, Electrified with the RChotdeals.com $16 brushless motor/ESC combo, a pair of 5 gram servos and the $7.00 dealextreme.com 900mah 7.4 lipo batteries. This was one of those lesser known airplanes as it generally hung below a dirigible (thats BLIMP for you Madison County folks) and dropped into flight. Haven't decided if I'm going to add the truss frame hook assembly that fits atop the upper wing just yet. IF it flies twice, perhaps.
Covering is the stock grey and yellow tissue from the kit. Absolutely NO dope, NO stink using Office Depot purple glue sticks and either 70% alcohol or water in atomizer. Finished in light coats of Krylon Matte finish clear acrylic, and Testors enamel on the plastic parts.

All up ready to fly weight is going to be between 11 and 12 ounces.

Have NO idea how many hours this one took..but it was a BUNCH. Jeez, somebody call me to do some Surveying! Or send a friend, your ex-wife, worst enemy that needs a Survey!

Ok,

Vince used a JPD speed gun to clock my T-38 at about 65mph one day out at Flowood. Of course the few runs he did clock me were going upwind! So I figure 70 is do'able with good batteries.

On another topic, since I are the new Safety Director , I really do think CCRC should fork over some cash to purchase a good---none of this Harbor Freight junk---3/4" drive torque wrench and sockets so that I may, randomly, check and veriify the tightness of Todd and Bobbys' propellers.

Dave

ps....you want to something FAST?

MUUUUHAAAAAAAAHAAAAAA!

UPS just delivered the kit moments ago.....stay tuned for Daves BOH! (here's a clue....the "B" is for "Bat!")
