We're less than three months away from the coolest model aviation event in the United States. Very Happy

With that, I'm proud to announce that we officially have vendor support for the SMALL 30th Anniversary Model Airplane Fly-In.

I would like to thank Cox International and EX Model Engines for their support of this great model aviation event. More details coming soon.

Tony,

May I ask the name of the bottom hi wing design in your photo? Looks a bit like a Veco tail.

Hi Bill,

It's a Pat Tritle designed Cessna 180 Free Flight model sold by Dare Engineering that I'm modifying for RC and Cox glow power.

S.M.A.L.L. 30th Anniversary - Mayflower, Arkansas (Oct. 10-13, 2019) Empty Sponsor/Vendor - Willy Nillies Hobbies & Crafts

Post  xplaneguy on Wed Jul 24, 2019 10:39 pm

More exciting news, guys!  Very Happy

I'm proud to announce that we have another great SMALL sponsor, Willy Nillies Hobbies & Crafts! This new company is owned by Doug and Becky Hart....and they are 1/2A fans! In fact, Willy Nillies is producing a line of laser cut balsa kits of many classic 1/2A models in smaller sizes (250 grams or less). Willy Nillies will have a vendor booth at SMALL, so please come out and support this exciting new business. We are thrilled to have Doug and Becky joining the SMALL family.

Here's a short message from Doug:
We just launched our kit business and we are focused on only making kits of 250 grams or less. So definitely small planes. I grew up in the 70s/80s and all I flew were half a planes and gliders. One by one, we will recreate all the old Ace kits and others at slightly smaller size.

We just got back from Flite Fest in Ohio. It was the "launch" of our business and were quite pleased with the reception. We took 3 different models and sold well over 100 kits.


The GLH 250 (.020 TD or electric powered) is on the website now and build videos are on the Willy Nillies YouTube Channel (below).

More S.M.A.L.L. prep.

Spent a few hours cleaning and replacing parts on a few Cox engines yesterday. This Cox .010 had a cracked plastic venturi and a well abused glow plug.

Good as new now and ready to be installed on a plane.

S.M.A.L.L. 30th Anniversary - Mayflower, Arkansas (Oct. 10-13, 2019) Empty Time Flys !!!!

Post  Kim on Sat Jul 27, 2019 2:36 pm

A few days ago, I realized that our 30th S.M.A.L.L. Fly event will fall right across the 10th Anniversary of Little Traveler's flight for the kids of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital!

On October 10, 2009, the modified Sterling "Minnie Mambo" flew the 15 miles non-stop between my home town of Olmsted, Illinois to my Uncle Wayne's backyard in the remnants of a town called Boaz.  I guided it from the bed of Mike Bloom's pickup truck, with his son-in-law Rory Ruble running the video camera.  A 4 ounce Sullivan tank gave it just a little over 1/2 an hour of flying time, with a couple minutes of circling over Wayne's house before the Cox International "Red Scorpion" .049 ran out it's fuel.

I was able to dead-stick Little Traveler safely into the middle of Wayne's backyard runway, and we all had us a big hoot!

Little Traveler raised some $1600 and change for St. Jude Hospital.

For a while, it was sort of "shrined"...hung from the rafters of my shop...but Hangar Queens really bug me, so it eventually got pilled down, had a servo change and a choke throttle backplate added to it's Red Scorpion engine.  It got to fly "formation" with Troy "Tee Bee"s Minnie at last year's S.M.A.L.L.

It'll once again be making laps (with plenty of loiter time) at Sky Tiger Field!  

Sorry for the slight hijack...I just get worked up!
