020 Engine Rusty's Engines and Me

Post  Kim Fri Jun 18, 2021 11:55 am

I received Rusty's Memorial Engines just before this year's "Summer S.M.A.L.L.", and they became part of the load-out for the trip to Arkansas.

I'm currently "at war" with my editing program, but will post a video at first opportunity.

Follow Rusty's Memorial Traveling Engines! - Page 3 0_215

I got all three installed on their respective planes, but decided to wait to test-run them at Sky Tiger Field.

The Fox was bolted to my Uncle Wayne's Goldberg "Buster", the RR-1 went on the Q-Tee, and the .020 went on a Scientific "Kingpin", built by Breezy Hill Flyer Billy Lang.  They were all then tied down in the van.

Follow Rusty's Memorial Traveling Engines! - Page 3 350_10
Follow Rusty's Memorial Traveling Engines! - Page 3 555_10

When running the Fox on the Buster, I was getting a bunch of vibration that didn't get better with two other props, so I switched the engine to my Goldberg "Shoestring" with a third prop.  This worked out better, and I logged a couple flights, though the Fox still didn't like outside pulls, cutting out---then starting again---just to make me pay attention.  
Follow Rusty's Memorial Traveling Engines! - Page 3 505_411
Follow Rusty's Memorial Traveling Engines! - Page 3 517_10
Follow Rusty's Memorial Traveling Engines! - Page 3 520_10

I was able to share a Shoestring flight with Fitz Walker III, whose podcast covers the S.M.A.L.L. Fly-Ins when he's able to attend.  He hadn't flown C/L in many years, but handled the old Shoestring just fine.

The RR-1 apparently didn't care for Billy Lang's custom-carved prop, and I must have been heat fatigued, because I kept trying to fix the problem through needle adjustments.  It would later fly just fine on a gray/black 5x3 prop.

Follow Rusty's Memorial Traveling Engines! - Page 3 204_15
Follow Rusty's Memorial Traveling Engines! - Page 3 21010

Follow Rusty's Memorial Traveling Engines! - Page 3 204_510

Hoofing it back home, the RR-1 had it's prop swapped out for a 5x3, which the engine liked a LOT more.  I got in several flights high over the hill, with good, steady runs, and smooth video and clear captures:

Follow Rusty's Memorial Traveling Engines! - Page 3 6_58
Follow Rusty's Memorial Traveling Engines! - Page 3 50_25
Follow Rusty's Memorial Traveling Engines! - Page 3 54_16
.....................................................................................................

Then, I decided to introduce it to a couple "Children of the 60's"

The Golden Hawk had its Space Bug replaced by the RR-1 which, to put it mildly, "lit it up"!  The G.H. blasted around my front yard on it's 35 feet of Spiderwire like a combat wing.
I wasn't bold enough to try outsides or inverted stuff, but pulled some wingovers and tight inside loops.


Follow Rusty's Memorial Traveling Engines! - Page 3 10_125
Follow Rusty's Memorial Traveling Engines! - Page 3 5_60
Follow Rusty's Memorial Traveling Engines! - Page 3 6_59

................................................................................................

While in a control line mood, I wanted to try the RR-1 on one more "photo friendly" (no cowling) type, so it was bolted to my Jim Walker "Firebrand" combat wing.  It hauled the little foamy with the same authority as the Golden Hawk, though I still kept everything on the positive side.

Follow Rusty's Memorial Traveling Engines! - Page 3 20_32
Follow Rusty's Memorial Traveling Engines! - Page 3 21_23

...............................................................................................

I still wanted to get a little more flying done with the Fox .35, and hauled it and its Shoestring to Breezy Hill for some laps, and photo ops with the Flyers.

So, the 'String got loaded down with GoPros and launched.  The vibration was still there, but manageable, and I got in a good long flight.  The landing, however was so abrupt that the plane's flipping on it's back broke the rudder and elevator (it's an old plane!).

Still, I had my video, and the stills I could capture, so no great problem.

After our meeting, I got the Flyers to pose with Rusty's Three Traveling Engines.

Follow Rusty's Memorial Traveling Engines! - Page 3 100_27

....................................................................................

And yet, I STILL wanted a chance to make amends with the Fox by trying one more prop, and bolted the engine to Wayne's Buster for another try.  The final prop was a narrower chord Master Airscrew, and the Fox liked it.

All set and ready to rock, then the winds came up...and stayed up.  I rolled the dice and headed over to the small Airport at Cairo, Illinois, hoping for calmer air at the end of the day...and was rewarded with a smooth light breeze.

I was rapidly losing light, and fighting off some truly majestic horseflys, but got everything set up with Go Pro's on the Buster's wingtips.  I didn't want to press my luck with the engines' departure so close, and limited the Buster to loops and wingovers as it hauled it's Go Pro's around its circle.

This is the wrap-up to that beautiful evening, with what I consider some fitting images as a memorial to Rusty.

And, God Speed to my ole bud, Rusty.

The Traveling Engines arrived this afternoon safely and securely. Thanks, Kim! I have already mounted the RR-1 and the .020 engines on planes. I'll mount the Fox tomorrow on a plane. I hope to be able to fly the planes on Monday or Wednesday. I won't be able to match Kim's posts, but I'll give it my best shot.

Also, just wondering what we call these .020 engines with the printed backplate. Are they still a PeeWee? A Product .020? A CEF Special?

Kim, is that a Cox handle your flying with? I pulled mine out a little while back because I had my .020 lines on it. Mine cracked in my hand. That was a green one similar to what you look like your flying with. I have another peach colored one with swirls in it that seems intact, I just haven't got around to switching it over yet.

Yeah, I've a couple that got retired due to cracking a the top and bottom cross sections. This one must have spent most of its life tucked away from the sun, 'cause it seems to be in good shape. I've got some home made handles, cut from cheap ply and layered with old fiberglass and epoxy, but haven't put many of them to use yet.

Amazing pictures! I'm glad to see all the engines got some time in the air and they gave you minimal trouble. I don't know why I didn't try a 5x3 on the RR-1 as that is usually my go-to prop. It looks like everyone had a great time. Beer Cheers

This one is my favorite. Thank you Kim for doing those engines justice. Keep that Fox running guys! It will eventually loosen up. It’s a golden goose, it just needs breaking in.

Great story and photos to accompany it. As stated above, Rusty was probably looking down smiling at the engines running.

Sorry to take so long to get these videos out.  Been laid up  with my back, but I finally got out to fly yesterday.  Here is the video of Rusty’s Travelling Engines flying.  My son and I went out to Walker Memorial Field at Delta Park to get some flights in.  I also hoped to get a few of the other members at the field who knew Rusty through Stun Hangar to fly also, but a couple of them were clockwise flyers, one had balance issues, and one said he couldn’t fly on the uneven grass.  So only a couple got to fly the engines.  One was the club hotshot, Jim Cameron, who flies and evaluates most people’s planes, and one was Gary Harris, a combat flyer.

Here is the Travelling Fox:





And the Travelling PeeWee/RR-1:




I’ll post more pics soon.  The engines are clean up and ready to go, and I’ll pack them up to ship off to Long Island as soon as the book and USB stick are updated.

Good stuff Mark.

First video flight, your Son's first larger than .049 flight. He did a great job. Guess that was Jim in the circle with him. Nice circle. Asphalt?

Sorry to take so long for the update.  I was laid out for a while.  Here are the pictures of the engines mounted on planes and at the field.

Follow Rusty's Memorial Traveling Engines! - Page 3 DSCN7856


I was originally going to mount the PeeWee on my L’il Gem , but then remembered that I built a PeeWee powered Ringmaster for the last Fly-A-Thon that never got flown.  So that’s what the PeeWee went on.

Follow Rusty's Memorial Traveling Engines! - Page 3 DSCN7839
Follow Rusty's Memorial Traveling Engines! - Page 3 DSCN7841


The RR-1 went on my Ambush.  Irony, that.  A Cox engine on a Testors plane…

Follow Rusty's Memorial Traveling Engines! - Page 3 DSCN7851
Follow Rusty's Memorial Traveling Engines! - Page 3 DSCN7844


And the Fox went on a Fight streak.  Fitting period plane for the engine.  It started off as a Flite Streak ARF, but after a crash I rebuilt it with a solid fuselage and motor mount for a Magnum 30XLS 4-stroke engine.  Obviously the Fox is MUCH lighter.  So I had to add some weight…

Follow Rusty's Memorial Traveling Engines! - Page 3 20210715-164915
Follow Rusty's Memorial Traveling Engines! - Page 3 20210715-164920



To fly the Cox engines, I broke out my last fresh bottle of fuel.  *** Sigh ***  Brodak 25%.  The Fox got SIG 10% nitro, 25% full castor fuel.

Follow Rusty's Memorial Traveling Engines! - Page 3 DSCN7853


We flew at Walker Memorial Field, dedicated to Jim Walker, Father of control line flying.

Follow Rusty's Memorial Traveling Engines! - Page 3 DSCN7858


I tried to get more people flying, but only was able to rope my son and a couple of others.  Here’s Jim Cameron, long time flyer and star of the previous videos:

Follow Rusty's Memorial Traveling Engines! - Page 3 20210630-131754


And this is Gary Harris, as seen in the Ambush video:

Follow Rusty's Memorial Traveling Engines! - Page 3 20210630-123635



It was such a great honor (and terrible responsibility) to get to fly and share Rusty’s engines.  And now I get to pass them on to Bob and other CEF members to enjoy.
