Less nose heavy, but still nose heavy.......... As much as I don't want to add weight I am going to have to if I want this thing to stunt well.

Ron

I have noticed that the nose on the Brodak kit is a lot longer than on the original Goldberg design, this may account for the nose-heavy balance, no idea why they lengthened it (compare with my pic of my original design)
Have you positioned the cylinder on the inside for any particular reason?

Keeping the cylinders turned outboard was typical for many years. For one , it assisted in tip weight theoretically speaking. The problem with having a outboard cylinder or even a upright cylinder is the fact that fuel is being thrown into the plug causing a burp. This is very apparent in a Fox.35 and some will say it's a myth. I had a long discussion with Larry Renger in regards to the inboard mounted cylinder. It actually in my opinion improves the run through all the maneuvers. The plug isn't getting fuel thrown at it and it keeps running steadily even through the outsides. Before you decided to turn it outboard, I would seriously try it as is. The Hyper Viper in addition came with an inboard mounted cylinder. Ken

Masterful job, Ron. The wingtips look great too. Those are the hardest part of covering. I think your leadouts are a good bit farther rearward than mine. I never got back to you with the CG position. I'll have it in a few minutes.

I remember that discussion. I've been planning to try the inboard cylinder next time I mount an engine. My engines always bog slightly, especially the Bees, during tight turns.

Funny you mentioned that. I removed the metal backplate of my BRM to get it to balance. I don't really want totake it off of this one too.

It took 4 dimes on the tail to balance this one.

The CG on my plans is 1-1/8" behind the LE.

Hey Wilf,

Yes, Ken suggested I do that on a previous build for the reasons mentioned above.

I suppose that it would be easier to handle plug connector and needle that way if you are left-handed, otherwise I think it would prove a little awkward, certainly I could never handle a model with the cylinder that way, having all my experience back in the day with diesels, they were positioned toward the outboard side so that you could keep your left hand on the compression screw while flicking the prop, and seeing it the other way just looks totally "wrong" to me!

I haven't had a problem with it. I attach the clip and just wind the prop and hold the plane the usual way. It would be a pain if your glow clip had a loose fit.

Rusty,

Didn't see your comment about the leadouts. They are positioned exactly as the plan depicts. I took the tip and marked the location on it when it was laying flat on the plan. When I hang the plane by the leadouts the nose points slightly downward. I decided to set it up without rudder offset per Ken's suggestion.

Ha! That was my attempt at being positive Keith. I did say I was happy with it! Wink

I am learning to stunt so what I was attempting to say is I am not going to focus on the imperfections as I will probably damage it anyway.

I think they need to be that way. When I remake my Bean I'm going to re-position them more rearward. I shifted the leadouts on the Chopper and it made a difference in the line tightness.

Ron, I was wrong! The CG is 1" from the LE. I'm sorry, I screwed up, I hope I didn't cause you to mess anything up. 1/8" difference would make it snappier, but maybe too much so.

If at all possible, make the wingtip leadout position adjustable. Unless you have the same engine power and offset, rudder offset, and line drag (length, steel dia., dacron, fishing line), any suggestions, including placement per plans is only going to be ballpark when you trim for stunt flying. Back too far and you may lose line tension as you get higher in the circle. Remember, when learning stunt you need to consider the entire hemisphere, rightside up or upside down.

You must consider your first few planes expendable. We all make building mistakes and we try to improve next time. Wait 'till you start thinking, "Shucks, I know better than that" when you have made a mistake...that hurts! Sad

Soothing words for the "crasher":

"Failure can become success if you learn from it".

It's like learning to ride a horse. If you get thrown "man up" and give it another try.

If you built it once, you can build it again. It may be a little heavier and uglier from patches and repairs but almost any crash can be repaired...and, not all crashes require repairs.

The best attitude is to assume that at one point it WILL need fixing. Been there 'n done that...'n done that, ...'n done that... Smile
