Ok,

I am going to send off the Engines this week. I was able to take the Fox .35 Super Clown and the Li’l Jumpin Bean out to the field this morning. The Fox definitely needs to be broken in more. Hopefully by the end of the list it will be! It kept going lean and cutting out on me, I finally got one half decent flight with it and even at that it didn’t like inverted flight. It’s a shaker too which compounds the issue.

The RR1 ran better, but I really wanted to use Rusty’s handle to fly it and it was set up for 40’ lines. Too much, it too didn’t like inverted.

However, I flew them. The cool little .020 will have to wait for the next guy to do something with it. Here are a couple pictures and a couple videos. No need to watch the whole 7 minutes of the Super Clown. It gets pretty boring as it wouldn’t do transitions and it was lean so I kind of just flew the tank out. Some stunts, but not many.

If anyone was a member from the beginning they will understand the significance of these two planes selected for Rusty’s memorial. Also if you look closely at the handle you can see why it can only be Rusty’s. Tight lines brother.

Edit: Forgot to mention, that’s Rusty’s prop on that Bean.

Nothing like a well seasoned Bean. My dad built his in 66 and I'm still flying it to this day even though pieces fall off of it now and then.

Heart stopping moment when the Fox cut out during a loop early in the flight. Amazed that it caught and continued on. Rusty would be proud. Nice flying Ron.

Yeah, both engines needed some fiddling. Nothing wrong with them though. If I had more time I could have made them run perfectly. I always harp about bench running and running in the air are two completely different things. This is a good example of that. Totally my fault though for not checking things out first. I bolted on and flew. You get out of it what you put into it!

I couldn't think of a better way to honor Rusty than putting a Clown and Bean in the air with his memorial traveling engines!   Great work Ron. Hand Shake

Yes, a good and fitting tribute to our great friend.  Rusty would approve.
