Eric, you beat me to it with this post. I would have thought there'd be more action by now.. especially where there's more freedom in design. One could literally fly an engine with a two-wheel undercarriage.. if it was controllable!

Maybe it's just a matter of bumping this thread every few days.. to keep it fresh?? Huh...

Maybe those who are still considering.. should look at a prospective-build as a "rat-rod" type of thing? Shocked A "flying freak" if you will. Weight isn't much of a concern.. so you have the freedom to use many types of materials. The model only needs to achieve a regulation-flight "once". It can be built with "that" in mind. Less attachment.. and more fun! You might even decide to build a couple different ones.. Shocked  

Let your imagination run wild!! Eyebrows

I will start on mine after the first of the year

still not decided on a design yet, but will probably re-purpose any of 5 unfinished 1/2a planes cluttering up my shelves

Since I volunteered to provide prizes I will not be competing ---but doing this just for fun

Speed Panes

I've got 3 planes going on the work bench now, one is nearly finished! I"ve taken a lot of liberty with some plans from the Outerzone and they have been a lot of Funn!

I plan on using a Tee Dee, Black Widow, Golden Bee for power! I'll try to post some pictures when they are done.

The Traveling Engine 1 is back on the road if an .049 TD is needed for a speed run.

That's good to know Jason. The Tee Dee .049 engine will haul-A$$.. in a small speed-model.. Laughing We need to have more CEF members step-up... and commit to entering an airplane in the 2018 contest. If you have a Cox .049 engine.. "get it running".. don't be bashful.. build a simple small control-line airplane.. and enter it in the contest! It's all about having fun.. and carrying-on the tradition of running our Cox model-engines.
