I decided to give the Skyray a test run yesterday after its long winters nap.

Almost had a disaster when it slid off the edge of the table while running. The stooge held it so no damage.

Ordered a 1/2A Skyray kit - Page 5 Empty Finally got some airtime

Post  TLAnderson Sat Jun 29, 2019 11:18 pm

Got the Skyray in the air Friday evening. First flights of the year. I made an attempt on May 28th, but failed to get the plane in the air.

I was trying an elevated launch platform to get the plane out of the grass, and allow me to start it without having to get down on the ground. (Getting old sucks)Thumbs Down

The first version of the platform was too short so the plane just dived into the ground on launch.
So here's version two.

It was a nice evening to fly, and I got several glitch-free flights in. Can't wait to do it again. Smile

Those nuts might have had something to do with the plane diving into the ground back in May. They got cut off before the latest flights. Shocked

Very Happy Sounds like a good name for it. The plane is much more docile and easier to handle now.

Got a bunch of good flights in on July 30. I swapped the engine from the PT-19 onto the Skyray just to see which one pulls it better.
Started heading for the handle, and realized I hadn't removed the battery leads.
The red ribbon is on the takeoff gear so I can find the gear in the grass after it drops off.

This plane didn't get much airtime last year. Finally got a somewhat calm day today so I decided to give it a try.

Thanks Eric. Ya that field only gets mowed once a year. That tall grass saves the plane when it crashes though.
Winter comes early and stays late around here. Got to get the flights in when you can.

Thanks Bob. I just retired on June 4th, after working for 50 years. Hopefully I can get more flying time in now.

Congratulations, I worked for 43 years straight, retired at 55 and never looked back. 43 years, three jobs -poultry farm, Navy, Federal Civil Service and that's it. My interests are varied, from forestry to models and i have never been bored without something to do. Always been that way.

I envy you with flat land and room to let the lines out. I'm restricted to 35' max and at that I'm pushing it and have found trees. Easy for me to get the dizzies.

Are you going to build something new?

I don't know. I have the Snip combat wing to play with also. I've been working on an engine mount for it that won't break off every time the plane crashes. Haven't flight tested it yet.
