And it was a shootn' match too. I was behind after the first flight, but came back and greased it. Got two flights on video and some pictures too. All that and my story later.

All of the trophies were the late Allen Brickhaus designs. This one is a Privateer.

Thanks guys. I promise a full scale report when I get rejuvenated. I'm still basking in the warm fuzzy buzz of a great time.

This is all something I never envisioned myself doing. I'm sure glad I fell into it. Last time I just flew as well as I knew how and didn't worry too much about it. But this time when I found myself seriously challenged for the top spot, my competitive blood lit up. I don't think I would have flown as well if I hadn't had my back against the wall with only one flight to go. As worried as I was at the last minute about the Skyray, it performed beautifully. I actually kissed it on the spinner before I hung it up. lol!

Yeah, my wife thinks the stunt trophies look phallic. The combat trophies really look cool. Like a combat wing viewed from the top with a nicely shaped propeller and tail feathers.

I understand, especially with Brodak coming up in a few weeks. Be sure to tell Larry Wilkes, I don't know if he ever gets my PMs and e-mails, but he gave me great advice that I even use when I practice, and it always gets me settled into a calm frame of mind when it's time to fly.

It sure is a great feeling, I've worked hard at this, and I've been a slow learner at times. And also especially since I had a guy really breathing down my neck. I almost helped him too much Lol. Made a new friend though. He's from West Va. and had a most beautiful Humongous with a ST 46, and it wasn't any cheapo Monokote job either. The dude was fearless and that fine plane saved his ass more than once, particularly when I was helping him practice Saturday. It was his first contest but he was not screwing around.

It's Intermediate from here on. Next up for me is the Carolina Criterium in October. I've already reserved rooms for Holley, Al and me.

I have a video of one of my excellent flights uploading now. There will be another one to follow later. And I got a bunch of good movies of Mike Londke's combat guys, but I transfered them to Al's computer to free up my canera, so he'll have to mail me a memory stick or something.
Rusty

The movie will be live in a while, so I'll go ahead and post the link here:

Rusty, as luck would have it I was in the stunt circles myself this weekend. Larry was there and was hopefully hoping to hash out some of his hang ups in the PAMPA pattern. I told him you were flying the Skyray. He knew that Watt and some others were helping you. He was all smiles. He did say he received a few e-mails. I believe his son just got married or is in the process and recently bought a house. Larry has had his hands full with plumbing and painting. My son and I wanted to fly more but the winds were just in the 15-20 and this had stuff bouncing all over. Larry had a Shoestring with him that actually did quite well in that wind. Ken

Great. As long as he's all smiles, I'm glad. Maybe we'll get to fly in the same circle again at one of these contests.

Post  RknRusty Mon May 05, 2014 11:20 am

Thanks everyone.

In case the above link to my Stunthangar story is a problem, I'll re-post it here. It's in a thread by a guy I had no idea I would meet up with. Here it is, re-posted from SH:


Hello everyone.  This is my first ever post, so bear with me if I'm not doing something right.  I am getting back into the sport after a 35 year hiatus.  I recently completed an RSM Humongous with an ST.46 installed.  I am using a 12 X 6 Zinger prop and plan to fly on .018 X 60' lines.  What prop and/or line length would anyone recommend?  Do I need less prop and more line length?  Thanks for any help.
Lemme tell you about Roger, the OP. He showed up in Huntersville this weekend with his Humongous. It's a fine plane and it ain't no cheapo Monokote job either. It's truly beautiful, I hope he'll post a picture. I helped him practice Saturday afternoon with an 11 or 12x6 Zinger I believe. He was running 29% oil fuel and that ST is a sweet running engine, though he was running it pretty fast. I didn't have a watch but I think he was right on 5 seconds.

Roger was vacillating over whether to enter the Beginner contest which I was registered for, and after flying a few semi-patterns with a few OTS moves mixed in, was leaning toward jumping in. He was still trying to memorize the pattern, I bet he laid in bed all night flying it. LL~ He had some, to say the least, unorthodox moves in his maneuvers Saturday, but that is a seriously responsive and quick plane. He was flying with a really wide handle, and we talked about changing it, but a narrower one may not have gotten him out of more than a couple of close encounters. I urged him to use more sky, but the boy is fearless!

Anyway, when I got there this morning I was happy to see Roger's name on the list because we needed someone to fill it out. I didn't want to just win because of no competition. There was one other fellow, young Shawn Hicks. His grandfather is Mike, can't read the last name in the picture of the advanced lineup, was helping him out, but Shawn hasn't quite gotten the routine down yet. I know he'll be competitive very soon though. A seriously interested and impressive 8 year old, friendly as he can be and a sponge for knowledge. So, Roger, Shawn and me get to mix it up.

Shawn flew, and then Roger flew before me and I pitted for him. It wasn't long before I thought, Uh oh. Remember what I said about fearless. The dude memorized the pattern in his sleep, and his capable plane was cooperating. He greased a takeoff that looked like the guys on the paved circles fly and he proceeded to knock down a pattern that was pretty damn respectable considering he learned it in his sleep last night. He was running sub 5 this morning and clipped a few weeds, but hung in there like he had icewater in his veins. He pulled off every maneuver with some of the early beginner tightness but didn't bust any of them too badly. I noticed I'm standing there with my arms folded now... the defensive posture I believe. ;D. When the Super Tigre finally sucked air, he flew it in and greased a 33 point landing. H^^

My turn. At least I have one contest and some practice under my belt and I flew what I thought was a pretty solid pattern, wide pretty loops, nice intersections, good overhead, but jumped my takeoff and bounced my landing. Those two mistakes put him in first place.

Second round, we flew back to back again. I flew a pretty good pattern and Roger flew a pretty good pattern. I finally added a good takeoff and landing to my routine, and it's a damn good thing for me. While I'm standing there gritting my teeth watching him fly his number two, my wife says, "You think he's sandbagging?" No, I said, I think we're looking at a near future expert. The contest had turned into a shootout.

We congratulated each other and after a while I suggested we go look at the scores... the green mile... neither of us was hurrying. We finally got there. Young Shawn our other new friend saw us and came over too, and we all gazed upon the scores together. I was relieved and Roger was the consummate sportsman. Shawn was just his usual happy self, knowing he'll be kicking both of our old asses soon anyway.

You're even more ready than you know. In what other competitive sport do opponents help and urge each other along and pit for each other.

Now that you will be entering intermediate, your run time needs to be really taken into consideration and is easily overlooked. I know when I started, I was more concerned with how to do the other maneuvers not associated with the beginner pattern. When it came time to put it all together, running out of fuel as soon as I was entering the overhead maneuvers was common.  This will really keep you in tune with your equipment. You just won't be grabbing a tank and strapping it on. Seeing that your tank will approximately be close to 3/4 empty by the time your into the overhead 8 will also reveal  how well your tank is feeding. You may recognize some of the problems associated with certain shape and design tanks. Many times in my tank posts, I mentioned how somewhere through a engine run the engine would struggle.  I found it necessary to have my son with me in the circle when I first started learning. He would count out the needed laps and on his mark he would call out the maneuver. I just found it difficult to remember how to keep track of it all. I could do it when practicing, but I would foul it up on contest day. Nothing to be afraid of really, it can be very rewarding and it really is cool when you put it all together. Ken

I can do all the stunts (and others) fairly well, but I probably need to start just flying the pattern in it's entirety. I was doing that with the OTS pattern last year, but was unable to compete. This year we have one in Tulsa and one in Wichita so I have no excuses! Unless work intervenes.

Did you take home any prizes?

Other than the wooden trophy in the first post, I was also ceremoniously presented a Sig Magnum control line plane by the Norfolk Aeromodelers as a gesture of keeping the hobby alive. I'll honor it with many flights and pass it down the line when the time comes. I'm humbled to be the recipient of this gesture. It was built by a recently deceased member of the Norfolk club. Forgive me for not recalling his name. I was waiting to get an e-mail with its history so I can keep the lineage in tact, but I'll fill in the details as it comes.
