Speed Contest

Post  modelbuilder49 on Sun Jun 03, 2018 7:25 pm

Greetings!  I apologize for my tardiness but medical issues were in charge this time!  Gentlemen, I am submitting my post for the Cox Engine Speed Contest .... albeit late and probably not eligible but I just wanted to submit it.  This is my ME-163 built from plans from Outerzone.  It is powered with a Black Widow that I've had for quite a number of years using Sig 1/2A fuel.  After 7 warmup laps, I timed the required 12 laps at 39.87 seconds or 45.13 MPH.

Man, I'm gettin' dizzy just watching it Crazy Eyes

Hey, a little more nitro to stabilize the needle setting & I reckon you'll get a much quicker time.  Get that thing cranking a little smoother and faster!  Nice flight though. Glad you stayed upright for the whole time. lol!

Speed Contest

Post  modelbuilder49 on Mon Jun 04, 2018 9:20 am

Thanks Guys!  It was a lot of fun.  Actually, I have a whole box of 1/2A's that I built, mainly because I thought the plans looked so durn kool.  Unfortunately, I just don't get all that much time to fly 'em! In this case, I was determined that I wanted to at least qualify with the "Greats" who have participated in this event  Laughing !  Heck .... somebody's gott'a be the "waterboy" of the event, eh Laughing Laughing !!  I'm just sorry medical issues prevented me from posting to this site before the 1 June deadline.  Just curious, can anyone confirm/verify the time I calculated starting after the 7th lap? Oh, to answer the question, I used an old Master Airscrew 6X3 prop.

Nice flight!

I timed you for 12 laps, starting after the 7th lap, and came up 40 seconds for 45mph?
I would appreciate someone double checking for me.

The good news is you’re the winner with the only video posted!

I’ve test run both my entries and have my reedie 95% percent done, just need to find time to fly them.

Anyone else have video yet?

James! I like your "Balsa Bullet" this would be cool scaled up with some RC gear.
Aileron / elevator and throttle.

Greetings Very Happy Very Happy !! Oh man! I feel like the biggest dummy on the planet Doh! ! I revisited the video and then rechecked my math Surprised . This time I used the NCLRA Speed Chart at NCLRA.org and you are absolutely right Doh! !! I came up with 45.13 mph Shocked ! Please forgive me for my unworthy post. I will correct it both on the YouTube post and above. I totally screwed the pooch Sad !! I must admit, I like that calculating program they have online. I guess I won't be trusting my old feeble math skills going forward.

I put a Tee Dee .049 on my Super Corsair from the first Reed Speed contest. I’m calling this my rotary intake entry. It did 57.45 mph with the reedie and skinny racing wheels that I can’t seem to find now. Curious what it can do with the new power plant.

Unloaded noted best rpm: 17,441  mid way through the flight.
That equates to 49.6 mph prop pitch speed less drag load.
6x3 prop will naturally make good thrust over a 5x3.

Good morning everyone and to all the guys out there .... Happy Father's Day!! Ordinarily I would have kept any transactions private through a p/m but I felt if would be appropriate to make this public: To Mr. FredVon, Thank you for your most generous award. The $100 prize arrived yesterday and in a public manner for all the members of this forum, I am honored to say "Thank You! You're a true standup guy"!!

I love all the various CEF contests

Over time even the engine of the month has lost momentum

My desire with real prizes was max participation so sad it fell flat

Same with Bernie's news letter series...always a great read

The is absolutely the best community at CEF of any web forum I attend... I Love This Forum!

Congrats to James Catrer !
