Got this in the mail this evening from Fred:

Fred is Awesome, reasons #438, #439, and #440. DSCN6485


When he said he was gonna send me a care package, I was hoping it’d be the fiberglass speed fairing for the Cox speed pan.  Hoping like a kid on Christmas Eve.  But the Cox magnesium speed pan to match, and the Tatone aluminum pan made it like Christmas morning at the Gates’ house…

The speed pans weigh 24 grams each.  I don’t know if this is coincidence, or some standard they were trying for back then.  The fiberglass fairing weighs 11 grams.  So, together, the Cox speed pan and fairing weigh 1.2 ounces.  Incredible!

I already designed and built my speed plane for Fred’s contest that ends on 4/30, but now I’m going to have to build a second entry with the generous gift.  I’ll use the Tatone pan, as I plan to be careful on the build with the fairing, making sure I don’t screw up.  I’m thinking maybe a Space Hopper in the Tatone.

Tatone Pan:

I’m going to consult with a couple of the speed guys and get all the info I can from them before I start on the Cox proto fairing.  Figure out just how to set it up for fuel feed.   I was thinking Candy Apple Red paint with a gold base for the fairing, but my wife says that the pan and fairing look like a beluga whale.  So, I might have to paint it white.  We’ll see.

Cox pan and fairing:

Keep in mind that the threads in the Cox pan are 3-48. Fuel feed is a no brainer, bladder pressure.
