I didn't want to push it, so I used some SIG 25% and ran it just rich of peak.

Well, a contractor tried to kill me last Monday, so my ankle has been in bad shape. I'm aiming for a flight on it on Friday. If that doesn't work out, I'll send it on to whoever wants it next...

Sorry to take so long here.  Family stuff and stuff.   Lame, I know…   So I got the T.E to the field on my Skyray 110.  The last time I flew the Skyray 110 on a Medallion .049 on a 6x3 prop and 42’ lines, it was a dog.  So before I took this to the field I swapped in a set of 35’ lines and a Cox competition 5x3 prop to try and pep it up.  Whups!  With the T.E. instead of the Medallion and the rigid competition prop on 35’, the first flight had me turning lap times of just under 3 seconds.  Three minutes of that and I was danged dizzy.  So for the second flight I put on a standard floppy Cox 6x3, hoping it would slow the thing down.  Video shows it only slowed it down to just over 3 second laps.  After I remove the T.E. and put one of my TD’s in it, I’ll first try an APC 6x2 or maybe a Cox 6x2.  If that doesn’t work, it’s back to 42’ lines and a 6x3.

With the Medallion, the plane was okay, but with the Travelling Engine, the plane was super twitchy, so I didn’t do much other than a few shallow wing-overs and some loops with very high bottoms.  At the speed the plane was going, I didn’t have any reaction time, and I didn’t want to biff the T.E., so I just amused the other guys by spinning fast and weaving about after landing.  I forgot to turn the camera on for the first flight.  The second and third flights weren’t exciting, but I filmed them anyway.  I film everything, actually, so that I can post-mortem my crashes.  Sorry the plane isn’t centered in the video, I had the brim of my hatcam pulled down too low. I figured three flights was enough, so it got wiped down and put away.




I forgot to bring my camera to the field, so I had to use my lousy phone for the field photo.  It was terrible, so I’m recycling the first photo from Walker Field.



The Engine’s been packed off, and USPS tracking says it’s back home with Bob.

Hey, "Family and Stuff" has to take priority, and often times itself to impact the most "other stuff".

Good report and glad you got to fly it !!!
