And with that, She's Ready to Fly


The machine gun was made up from rolled paper, balsa block and a few bits of plastic. It's pretty well hidden under the wing, so there wasn'y a lot of detail added.

Then with a few static shots taken while we waited for the sun to come up and it was time to fly.

Flying the Nieuport


The Nieuport flew pretty much as I suspected it would. In fact, it feels alot like the YMF-5 air. It's really stable, and for a relatively low powered model handles nicely. With this set-up, it's a terrific Park Flyer for those small field venues.

Meanwhile, I'll make a few minor adjustments for the next go around and fly it some more to get the brushed set up pretty well optomized, then refit the model with the Himax 2808-890 and run it through its paces again so that we can suggest a good brushless alternative as well.

It looks awesome . It ought to go real well on the Himax . In my YMF-5 I'm using the 2015 -5100 in a GWS 350C "B" GB ...plenty of power to spare ...

I've noticed several references to "Callie". Is this someone who produces transferable markings and decorations? If so, would someone please tel me how to make contact?

I seem to recall someone by that name at the Toledo Show but I didn't get to see the booth or get any info.

Thanks Pat. I'll contact her. In the meantime, is the kit ready for sale of the Nieuport 28? I checked your web site but it isn't listed.

Also, I've just about finished the 44" Tiger Moth and would like to buy the plastic parts mentioned by Sparky, the corrugated tank cover, instrument panels, wheel discs and wind screens. Also mentioned by someone is an instruction manual for the Tiger Moth. I seem to have some parts left over and I can't find where they go on the plans. I'm referring to WCST and WCSB, two of each.


Thanks,

Boyd

Boyd,

This is another Dumas prototype. So, a year, 18 months before release.

1, I haven't had the time to get the second p-type built yet, so there's no word yet. I also plan to build #2 with ailerons and scale difedral, just to see what happens.

Will the aeleron option be part of the Dumas kit or is it something we would have to hack in ?

Went out this morning and flew the N-28 again, and got to thinking that it might do better with a bit of more modern brushless power system. So, 1 came home and went rooting through the motor box and found a 1080 KV Park 370, which looked like it should be just the ticket.

The new set up uses a simple mount box glued to the front fuselage bulkhead with a lite ply firewall. And on 2 cells with a GWS 9-5 simitat prop, it flew the model absolutely beautifully! Speedwize, it's a little faster then the original geared 280, and cruises nicely at 1/2 power. Loops are strong all the way over the top, and the climb is about 45 degrees till you get tired of going up.

The first flight consumed 339 ma's in a 10 minute flight, which means that 30 minute flight times with the T-Power 1320 battery will be MO problem. I do believe that this one will be seeing some serious flight times in the very near future!

Pat,

ANy news on when the rest of us mortals can have at this one. This is by far my favorite WWI Bipe. All the curved tails and tips are too sweet.

Bosley, All of this is now in the hands of the Guys at Dumas. At this point I couldn't even hazard a guess at when it might break out. All I can say is that it is coming -- eventually.
