So I loaded up the Radio Flyer and went to fly. Beautiful clear day, warm, 5-10 mph wind, not too bad. I took the Li'l Satan and the Jumpin' Bean with its untested Medallion and balloon. It'll work.

But there was music emanating from the church. They are having a service until 6:30. If it's still light enough, I'll go back over there then.

I'll make a new bladder for the Stuntman23 while I wait. It's been a long time since all three were ready at the same time.

They finally finished singing and praying about 7:00. I love daylight savings time. I got some flying in, but it got dark fast. Man, I am out of tune, my reaction time is awful. Now, however, I can fly on weekdays, so I'll be back in form soon. I took some advice and added a head shim to accommodate the 6" prop, but didn't test run it. It ran like an ordinary Black Widow. But that's okay, any faster and I would have broken something. I had some good fun, and was worn out when I got home. I only had one flight with it needled badly, too rich for it to lean out in the air.
Of course, you all know, I'll post a video, so stay tuned while I get it uploaded. Possibly tonight.

Do you have a son or flying buddy launching for you, or do you use a stooge? If stooge, can you post your design and method.

...sorry if you covered this in another post before

There is a picture of my stooge in the first part of this video. I described it in detail in a thread a while back. I'll try to find it and post the link here.

Here is some of yesterday's flying. I de-tuned it by lowering the compression and propping it with a 6x3 because I wanted to knock the Winter rust off of my reflexes and make sure I didn't get dizzy. I didn't, but my reflexes were definitely off a bit. The first flight was too slow, so I just went round and round, but I got it needled better after that. Next time I'm going to use a 5.5" prop, and put the compression back where it should be. Performance was only ordinary, I think. It should do better.
The light was low, so full screen is about the only way you can follow it.



I loaded up the Radio Flyer and went to fly Dunno That was way too ordinary. With all the attention this engine generated, I have to show a better performance than that.
The flight that starts at 2:20 is where the engine performs the best.

Why did i get a negative rep for my first post? Because I fly in a church courtyard? The pastor approves. He asks me to do exhibitions for the daycare kids and parents.

I just bumped you back up a couple. Not sure why anyone would do that. Maybe it was an accident. The buttons are kind of close together.

I'm at services every Sunday and it doesn't bother me a bit. The church is the congregation of people. Not the building or grounds. IMO anyway......hope I don't get dinged for that. lol!


Besides when you heard the singing you packed up and went home.
