Out at the club field at Noon. It's supposed to be 15mph winds. I'd never fly my little ones in that, but I guess this big boy can handle it. I believe he said it had a .40 on it. I'll let y'all know how I do.

If I do take the camera, it'll have to pass the editor's approval before I post it. Laughing Actually I think I'll probably fly it very well, I'm just a bit worried about the wind. I'll get some instructions from the guy first. I guess it's not much different from my little ones, only slower. He did say it'll be needled for a 2 cycle break in the climbs. I'm only concerned about overestimating its responsiveness in the low side of a loop or something like that. I'll get him to fly it first so I can watch. I am NOT going to ground his plane.

Rusty, probably the most difficult part of the flight would be the landing. A .40 is nothing to be concerned about. I know several flyers using Tower .40's and they fly remarkable. Hardly ever using all the power the .40 offers as the engine needs to be propped for rpm's vs speed. When landing, don't get yourself coming around on the wind side as the plane can get floaty.Just be prepared to get the plane on a downward glide rather quickly backing up as your doing so keeping good line tension. This quality isn't the situation in 1/2A as they generally descend quickly. The wind is something to be concerned with as 15 mph can bite you if your not careful. Wingover with the wind and all other maneuvers to your back. If the winds are blowing pretty steady, it's pretty easy to know where the windy side is. Unfortunately, at our field were surrounded by 3 sides of trees which can created a tornado effect making for some real turbulent winds at times. Ken

Like Ken said...watch the wind !! One the other side, I'm betting you'll be freaked out at how much extra "sky" you're gonna have! AND you actually get to observe the plane as it goes through it's maneuvers (I'm a bit slow, and have to "remember" the image of what I just did when flying 1/2A !!!!)

Good Luck !!!!!!!!!!

And yes Kim, me too with 1/2A. After an exciting flight, I'm never really sure what all I've done. That's why I like the videos, so I can relive it and see what I'm really doing. Brings my skill level back down to where it really belongs. That's good, because sometimes it helps me realize I'm not as neat and clean as I imagine.

I'm meeting my club friend with the Goldberg Shoestring at the field around noon Sunday. The wind is supposed to be almost none, 70F and mostly sunny. I'll have my Refried bean in tow as well as the Streak and the Li'l Satan. I'll get video of at least the RFB. Maybe the Shoestring too.

We have -10°C here, so it is building time. I'm working on a .15 shoestring (RC) that will get a MVVS and a pipe, should move around quite well...

Several years ago (between 10 -15..) I have build this Shoestring, 1/4 midget size with a .15 MVVS. The fiber spars were replaced by carbon fiber tubes : unbreakable ! This model flew very well, loops, rolls and more. A damned good airplane.

Not time to build (+10°c) but time to test several engines (TD and Babe bee) and inspect my old cars....

Damn that looks cold.
It was in the high 60sF here when I got to the field about 11:30 this morning. The shoestring was yellow from spinner to tail with an OS 40 on it, and 60' steel lines. Mike is the guy's name. He fired it up and took off flying some loops and wingovers but it was running lean and fast so he didn't do much more than that. but it really snapped into whatever direction he pointed it. Nice responsive plane. He landed it right next to the fueling station and adjusted it a little richer to get the lean break in the verticals.

In the next flight he was flying it along nicely, did a couple of touch and gos, but in one loop the wind took his lines away. About the time he got it back he snagged the grass and lost the handle. Right, no lanyard around his wrist. Next thing I saw was an unmanned plane climbing straight up, then straight down into a cloud of yellow carnage. I didn't get to fly it. But I did bring it home with a busted wingtip and a broken rear fuselage. He kept the engine and tank, and the rest is mine now. I'm glad I didn't wreck it.

I told him we should have used the CL field. The lee created by the trees really calms the gusts. We weren't expecting any wind but there was some on and off. I asked him if he wanted to play with my 1/2A planes and he did, so off we went to set up over there. By then others were showing up so I did some flying for a small audience. I was flying the Streak to warm up for the maiden voyage of the Refried Bean. I'll post about that in the appropriate thread. No more broken wood for me the rest of the day though. I asked Mike and Jim who came to the CL field to watch me fly if they wanted to try the Streak, and much to my relief, they said no. So I hooked up the Re-Bean and continued on.
