Wild Hair JOE (Ken Willard) Pee wee powered

Post  jmcalata on Mon Dec 12, 2016 4:42 pm

Hi friends, this winter Cold I´m a little lazy Sad but I need built some model. Huh...

Free flight 1/4 A model airplane will be good option Airplane

And I think that spanish Wild Man affraid must built the Wild Hair Joe. Flying



Has anyone built it? Not seem very dificult ... How many days will it take to do this? Paranoid



Nevertheless the master designer Ken Willard is the best guarantee. lol!

II´m sure that I will not forget to turn on the receiver No! ..... I hope not to lose the Pee wee Babe Bee .049 Devil

Regards Beer Cheers sleep

Jose,

It doesn't need a receiver - it's a free flighter!

Is it finished yet? A slabby sided, slabby winged plane like this could be finished in an hour lol!

RCing this could add a little too much weight.

Please post the build.

Hi Ian, I imagine that when you say "slabby" you can say boards .. ok? or woody plane? ... well.



Yes ... I can build faster but don´t be impatient Ian, I prefer build slow to enjoy more time.

I´m thinking to ing one channel RC, I fligh over railways, trees, river, road, there are many dangers for free flying.

HI Jose , i looked over the plans and it doesn't say how many ribs to cut and install ? I read the english version couldn't get the translator to do the spanish version so i could read . Looks like a fun little build , you going with the .035 K&B to pull the extra weight ? I Love This Forum!

Eric, I think it's as simple as on the drawings: 1 rib at wing root and 1 more at 2/3 of the wing.

José, Good luck with the build. Looking forward to see it flying!!

Hi, yes there is a simple construction system like jedelsky profiles.

One rib at root and other a 2/3 span, but I add one more at 1/3 span and I will make the root rib extra thick.

About engines I have three vintage K&B size but I think COX Pee wee has eneogh thrust for small Joe.



However I scale up plans 10 % because I don´t like fly bullets.



See the bigger Skyrida Pee wee powered.



By the WAY anybody want to follow me building another vintage slabby or ebenezer 1952 ( 65 years old)

That's a lovely plane you have there.  Great job with the doped colors.  Nice and bright.  It flies nice and docile with the PeeWee and oversized prop.  What size prop is that?  I've admired the Skyrida, but couldn't see when I'd get to building one.  Well done!

And, Yes! We always want to see another vintage build thread!

Flying over railway, trees and river.. Where do you land Joe? tongue Maybe add one more RC channel.. Popcorn Nice Winter project! I love to build.. I understand you're wanting to take your time with the model. Relaxing with it is good. I'm relaxing a little too much lately.. silent

Hi guys, I have started project Snowman Christmas Tree  ... anybody follow me? I Love This Forum!



The motor plate mount is a wood circle rest that drills bigs holes

Is a lot oo fun build small models ... you can relax so much and enjoy with them  lol!

A 1952 model neede vintage colours painting ... maybe varnish and some black details.

About Skyrida I use normally 5x3" prop at Pee wee but I use 6x3" also as you can see here.

You're getting along well. What a good idea to use a hole saw for making the motor mount. That shape goes well with a Pee Wee or Babe Bee tank. I use children's puzzle parts for motor mounts. The plywood has very fine layers.



I always protect the surface with a piece of Oracover against fuel ingress. Oracover when sanded can be painted in any colour you want!

Keep up the good work

Looking good Jose, I am following this Smile I am curious to see how you are going to protect the radio stuff from castor goo, as I am also interested in a simple "radio assisted" free flight model.

I also like your engine mount idea. strong, simple, and acts as ballast too.

1/16" (1,58 mm) balsa is very thin for stab and wing sheet, I use 2 mm



I have made the rudder down because is more easy mount the wire servo for control.

Another great idea. Would be good to post this in the 'Cheapskates' topic in the other forum. I like it! Laughing

The 'Cheapskates' topic I was referring to is actually called 'repurposing/recycling items for hobby-use'. My bad, but I do like the sound 'cheapskate'! Very Happy Anyways, I think it would be a great share on that topic, but did not want to take your work and discovery away from you, so if you were interested in sharing it there, here is the link. Thanks again for sharing.

Kari the best way to insulate the equipment from the oil is to put it inside the fuselage 3/16" wide but for that you have to be a good surgeon Very Happy
