Hi José, I enjoyed the video but what a crazy flight!! The plane seems to have too much power. I suggest to mount your prop the other way around. That will slow it down and it will circle instead of making loops. That plane turned out very nice and the rc stuff is well hidden. Bravo Small Cox Logo Small Cox Logo Small Cox Logo

Super project Jose. Ken Willard would be proud of you. Overlord's suggestion is a good one. The old FF articles used to tell you to put the prop on backwards for test flights.

Ken Willard had this neat Bipe in the February 1933 Model Airplane News; he has been at it for while.

Hi Overlord, Eric, and Willie.

Certanly engine is powerful, I´ve scaled up 10% but it can build bigger, Joe makes loops because I trimed to open radius turn and then flight straigh and makes loops, it´s not possible climb big radius maybe with less power.
The normal cilmb is spiraling like the Master Ken Willard said.
The plan is perfect, no need modifications, incidence is perfect.
And I´m happy with this flight ... is fun Very Happy , excitment affraid and enjoy. bounce

About mount the prop reverse, Ok I will try this weekend.

What´s the name of the small biplan? is not in this list. Is very soon 1933 ... Ken was very young.

Cannon Shot is a good biplane also

and 1938 Cavu

Haha, that's a hoot! Coming from you, it's no surprise, Jose. Great music, great plane, and fantastic entertainment.
Thanks, and merry Christmas,
Rusty

Hi guys, I just come back of the second flight session, I have mounted the prop at the other side, on backwards to find less thrust and Joe make the same climb spiralling up but a little slow.
Well, definitibly the thrust it is not the cause, I think that the problem is fly without elevator.
The airplane was designed for free flight and center gravity is rear 50% and wing incidente is calculated to filgh in small circles stable, if you try to open circles the nose goes up and makes loops.
But is Fun to see this climb spiralling, the second flight I set Pee wee rich and Joe dont climb ... then land and engine dont stop, airplane was taxing at the floor two circles and take off again ... many spectators laughing ... the engine increase speed and climb too height and far with the wind, when engine stops ... Joe get back in front of the wind and glide very good and finally it was landing over my hand, my friends clapping the nice glide and happy landing.

Maybe, I could build other Big Wild hair Joe scaled up 200% with R/C two channels, I am dura that will be more easy to fly and less crazy but also less Fun.

So, now I must travelling with my family to stay the Holy night with my fathers. I prepare a sweet Glen Miller long play  to listen at travel.
Have a great time friends.
Jose
