I hate to end with a whimper. Maybe I can work some epoxy magic and squeeze one more flight out of the old Flite Streak. That means Sunday night, right? We plan to fly at the fort Sunday, Wayne Matthew and me.

Alright here's my final time.
3:19:32, one very beat up Skyray, three ill fated Beechcraft Staggerwings, and the fastest time in Reed Speed! I estimate the Skyray flew about about 130 miles, Miss Ashley about 2 lol!

Cox flight contest time log (Winners announced and prize pics) - Page 5 Empty My Flying is Complete!

Post  GUS THE I.A. Sat May 31, 2014 10:44 pm

My Flight Contest flying is completed!

The engine I chose to use was the COX Tee Dee .051. I purchased it new, in 1983, or 1984.

I began flying for the Contest on the first day that we were eligible to log time, and put up the final flight this evening. I flew hot and heavy for the first few months, and did no Flight Contest flying during the months of October through April! Rather, I began a regimen of C/L Stunt training, and building. I did, however, build and fly two airplanes for the Reed Speed Contest, which were less than super-fast! I opted not to enter the video that Ron shot during his visit here.(It would have made you guys look REALLY good!)

So...I began Contest flying with a scratch-built "STIK"-type airplane, with an Ace foam wing. It served the most in this event. Next, I scratch-built a "Baby Birdy" from Sure-Flite plans, again utilizing an Ace foam wing. To wrap-up the flying, I constructed a mid-wing airframe, using parts from someone's crashed, electric ARF. Pictures of that airplane have been posted here. It DID turn out to be fuel-proof, thankfully!

Using these three airplanes, I completed sixty-eight flights. No crashes happened, but every landing was dead-stick! The total time for my flying is: 12:12:54. That's right- Twelve hours, twelve minutes, fifty-four seconds. I employed the 'count-up' timer feature of my DX6i transmitter, using the trainer switch as the start-stop activator. After launch, or take-off, I would start the timer, and when the engine quit, I would stop the timer, then, glide to a landing.

Many people were curious and enthusiastic about seeing a COX engine perform, every time I brought it out. They shared stories of their experiences with the COX engines, and said they will get them flying again. That's what the Contest was about - Exposure to the COX product. I think I helped in that endeavor!

Thanks for hanging in there, and giving us the opportunity to share our neat little engines!

Sincerely,
GUS THE I.A.

Post  ian1954 Sun Jun 01, 2014 5:32 am

All I managed was 5hrs 17mins 22 secs. All flights between 13th July and August 2013.

To my shame, nothing since then.

These were all carried out on the "NightHawk" - it suffered much damage until I realised that the Butyrate dope I has used wasn't as fuel proof as claimed.

I then built the Radian but it has sat unflown, untried, untested ............ I had forgotten all about it until I realised the contest was over!

Hang my head further in shame! Still, I will post the flights (or crashes) when I have made them.

Any excuses? I hate gardening - To prepare for a flight, I need to cut the grass (it only grows again!), trim bushes, shred branches, tidy up. About three hours work - much easier to let it grow, wander to the park at the end of my road and fly electric.

Well, I got 43 minutes and 10 seconds...with no good excuse other than I just didn't get back to it.

War Dog pulled around my "Super" Pt-19, my 2 meter B.O.T., and Epoxy Bomb.

Sorry I wasn't a better competitor in in this great contest.

Hey guys,

Make sure you break it up between RC and CL. There are prizes for both.

That reminds me I need to get a hold of Exmodelengines. We agreed on prizes a year ago and have not spoken since.  Shocked

Well, as the saying goes, "I'm a Lover, not a flighter"....

I have to hang my head on this one.  I build a lot. A LOT.  But I never seem to find the time to get out to the R/C field, and I'm not comfortable flying in the church field where I fly C/L.  So, I'll have to submit my pitiful 37 minutes on the engine.  That's what I get for not swapping the engine onto a C/L plane.

I appreciate all the replies.

Surely there are more times out there. A lot of folks signed up to fly.

I will bump this thread for 2 more days and then announce winners.

My final contest total time for the year, on the Baby Streak's Tee Dee .051 is 79 minutes.
It was somewhat prematurely shortened by a beginner pilot who has yet to empty a tank in the air.

Thanks everyone,

I enjoyed hosting it. I learned a few things along the way. Especially contest length!

I think it was too long to hold interest. My original intent was to stretch it out long enough so everyone had a fair chance for good weather.

The bottom line is flying is fun and we need to do more of it!

It looks great and with good quality parts to boot! Matt didn't hold back on those. To me it has an American theme.

If it could have a name I think it should be called the Captain America!
