Has anyone put a TD in a Baby Ringmaster? Line length, 42'? To fast for a BR? Maybe a bigger prop? Seems like this might be Rusty's (Mr. TD) question. I started thinking about it after reading your (Rusty's) answer, par phrasing "once your go TD you never go back" to another thread.

Duke:

Yes my BRM has a healthy beam-mounted TD .051 that I fly using 35 foot lines.

Yes it's FAST but FUN! Just flew it today in fact.

Well as you noticed, I'm biased. Tee Dees on pressure bladders using an inexpensive setup from Texas Timers. The goods include a $15 fine thread KK NVA and some bladder and fittings for a little more change. I can give more details if you decide to take that path.

The Baby Ring is probably comparable to my Baby Flite Streak, maybe a bit smaller. I have a heavy built Streak(mostly due to added nose weight) that weighs just around 9 ounces with a Tee Dee .051 and I fly on 45' lines with a 5.25x3 MA prop. I think it moves about 65 or so mph. To be sure, I'd have to clock some laps on Youtube if I can find enough flat ones in a row. That's about 3 seconds per lap, maybe a bit more. You can slow it down with a 5.5x3 prop but you can hear the engine slow slightly in tight loops.

If you want to see how it flies with the 5.5x3 on 40' lines, click the Youtube link under my avatar and watch the featured video. I fly it faster than that now on 45' with the wider venturi and 3-1/4" prop as I mentioned in the venturi thread.

My bladder making video sadly makes it look harder than it has to be. I wish I had been at it longer before I posted that. I can remove the old one, open the box, make and install a new one in 5 minutes now.

I flew my Streak on 35' lines... once! That was it. I couldn't do 2-1/2 second laps. That was the flight Microflitedude's Dad videoed on our joint CEF Traveling Prop day last June. It's in the TP thread as well as my Youtube channel. The only thing that saved my dizzy ass and the plane is that it would let me stand still and do loops and 8s while I got my feet back under me. It was the first post maiden flight of the Streak. And the first plane that would stay tight on the lines during repetitive maneuvers. Since then, the Li'l Satan has been upgraded to a Tee Dee and it now will do the same.

Does anyone have a copy of the fuse they could email me for the beam mount?

Sweet! Unless the wing is different, I only need the fuse. Thanks

I made this one for a TeeDee .010, and I fly it on 15 foot lines of SpiderWire. It goes pretty fast, too. It weighs 1.6 ounces, before fuel. What is the opposite of steroids?Baby Ringmaster on steroids! Or with a TD? 100_1212

Fly/run-time is about 2-1/2 minutes. The lines should really be a little longer, because lap times are too fast. I extended my arm, but that was not far enough. Probably add 5 feet.
