Gus the IA and his .010 Tiny Ringmaster

Post  Cribbs74 on Thu Aug 01, 2013 10:30 pm

I finally get to post something flying with a Cox engine.

Here are a couple video's of Doug flying his little Ringmaster with .010 power. Take a good look and watch Doug do some fancy handle work after getting caught up in some control lines!

I was given the chance to fly it and of course I crashed it and broke the prop and wheel. Sorry Doug.

I also broke his Nobler..... Shame on me Embarassed

Sad I've seen that happen with the lines as well, it just takes a few seconds to walk the handle to the outside edge of circle, but we're gonna temp fate till it happens...

We were doing that, we just forgot when we fired up the little .010 lol,

Circles were installed in the early 80's by Army Corps of Engineers. They are really nice to fly on.

You guys do realize that's a .010 being flown on a meat tray right? They actually really work well for CL.

Gus made one up for me and did a great job too! Thanks Doug!

You're welcome! I'm glad to do it! We always seem to shake things up pretty good (or bad) when you get up here, and this is a good way to exercise the jewel .010. This little plane is one of the good efforts to come from The Purple Plane Factory! I'm curious to see how you trim it out with color. I could not let it go, unless the canopy outline was complete - so you have a blank canvas to work with! You'll be certain to balance it accordingly! It will perform well, then - It's a Ringmaster, right? Good luck, keep us posted.

Edit: I have named this plane "Tiny Ringmaster", inspired by Matt Kania's "Ringmaster" design of 1950. I believe there is a kit available of a 'Micro Ringmaster' that is of wood construction. My offering is made from foam meat trays, and has a wingspan of 12 inches. I don't want to step on anyone's toes, or confuse the issue, but I would like to thank Matt Kania for the inspiration he has given, that allows us to be creative, and carry-on the Ringmaster legacy. Enough said? Have fun!

Edit #2: Picture of my model...

Great Stuff ! You guys are gonna make me spring for faster internet service on the hill so I won't have to drive to town or the airport to watch these videos !!!!!!!!!

When it looks like Patrick and I are gonna spend a few hours flying with multiple airplanes/lines, I lay out a "Box of Death" for our lines with "Do Not Enter" plastic tape, stuck in the ground with tent stakes. We've had several people come to watch, assure us that they see the lines, then walk on them anyway. The box really helps mark where the lines are.
