A little bit of control line hooky! (Video)

Post  Cribbs74 on Tue Jun 18, 2013 12:40 pm

I was at home from work and the sun was out and air was calm. Time to wring out the Bean! My daughter did the taping and missed the un-intentional touch and go. The launch was a touch rich and it took my first loop to unload.

And yes that is an inverted landing if you listen close you can hear my disgust. No harm done though.

Enjoy!

Exhilirating, Thanks, I needed that! You got that baby winding up. You can't see the touch and go, but you can hear it at 31 seconds. Mine usually takes a lap or now and then, two to unload completely. I'm going to go back and count your lap times, looks like at most, 3 seconds. Li'l sucker is hauling ass.

Thanks Rusty, Sure feels like it. I am on the edge of dizzy every flight. I love the line tension though. Likes to travel a bit through the eights. Not sure if it's a trim issue or lack of power. I'll look the model over. I can do consecutive insides and outsides and it runs fine. I am also running open vents. Perhaps I should plug one.

What size fuel tubing is acceptable for TD's I am using small, but wonder if medium would be better.

The prop is a MA 5.5x3 that I cut down from 6" the other day.

I don't know what size tubing I use. I know it's not the smallest. It might just be the fuel sloshing back and forth in the 8s. Probably not much you can do about that. But I'm the wrong guy to ask since I never got a tank to work for my little ones. It was hard to count a lap time since you hardly strung two low ones together, but it looks like about 3. That's clipping along pretty good.

Ah, it doesn't matter, just something to talk about... like, Damn dude that's all you can do, I'm burning three second laps between figure 8s, loops, and overhead belly busters!

Respect the tree. Want me to send you a bored out venturi for one of them bladders?
