We had the spring Fly-In at Delta Park today.  It was an unpublished Fly-In, for members only.  We didn’t want it put out online so that it would be a small turnout.  The state’s not really bothering small groups outside right now.  Small turnout of about 12-14 people, but it was fun.  I figured I’d get all the Cox powered models together and take a picture.  Not all were flying.  Some were just show and tell.

Left to right on top row:  My Flip with the TD .051, the HyperViper that that I’m still working on (only brought it to show the guy who gave it to me what progress I’ve made), and a Brodak ME-109 powered by a Medallion .09 that club member Darrell made.
Left to right in the center:  Two biplanes, both Bee powered, both named Ferdinand.  The yellow one from the Sept. ’59 Aeromodeller, and the red one is the redesign by the designer in the Jan. ’67 Aeromodeller.  Next is my Medallion .15 powered Sig Akromaster followed by my Black Widow powered Baby Ringmaster.  The black plane is a TD .049 powered Firebaby, also by Darrell.
And Left to right on the bottom:  A Babe Bee powered SIG Deweybird from out President Doug,  my Black Widow powered Ambush, and a Golden Bee powered SIG Skyray also by Doug.

A late entry that didn’t get pulled out of Darrell’s car was this delta powered by a TD .049 engine.  He was having engine troubles, so it didn’t fly today.  It’s a Firestrike from December ’68 Aeromodeller plans (https://outerzone.co.uk/plan_details.asp?ID=1725).

My big score was this ARF Flitestreak.  A club member had a stroke a couple of years ago and hasn’t been around much.  He brought it to the field and said he wasn’t leaving with it.  It has a few holes in the covering that need covering, but it flies pretty good.  Slight wing warp that needs fixing.  But it has an OS .25 FP that’s barely broken in.  I’ll look at getting it cleaned up and flying right.

Mark it appears to me that the stock pushrod guide is still in use on the ARF. If your not aware, the pushrod guide looks like a small 1/2"x1/2" shelf angle clip with rounded corners. A single hole attaches it to the fuse. The motion of the pushrod going back and forth causes the screw to loosen. The angle then jams the pushrod allowing NO movement thus crashing the plane. Rough the backside up a little, remove the covering where it butts the fuse and place epoxy on it. Don't CA it as that fails rather quickly.

Ken, I was going to do the washer-in-screwhead thing. Worked well for me in the past. The previous owner also also glued down the bellcrank access, and I'm going to have to lift it so I can re-do the leadout wires.

They all come with some type of warp. Sadly, the covering is not able to fully retain any twist you apply with heat and it may take several attempts prior to getting it to stay. They're excellent flyers and that engine you have is like a pocket on a t-shirt for that plane. The tank setup appears to be tastefully done as well.
