Northwest Aerolines Independence Day Fly-In

Post  batjac on Sat Jul 05, 2014 11:16 pm

Well, we had the fly-in today out at Delta Park in Portland.  There weren’t many people there from the Aeroliners or guests.  I think the total was 11 people.  Ah, well.  The Northwest Fireballs were out too, but the two clubs don’t get along together for some reason, so the Aeroliners flew on the grass and the Fireballs flew on the paved circle.  I spent most of my time with the Aeroliners as they seem a little more beginner/guest friendly.  And the Aeroliners flew smaller planes where the Fireballs flew large planes.   Besides, the Fireballs had the ring pretty much tied up, and the grass was free all morning/afternoon with the Aeroliners.  Richard (RK Flyer) was there all morning also.

The thing that amazed me was the percentage of Cox powered planes there.  Cox powered planes outnumbered other engined planes almost 4-1.

Here’s the gaggle that I brought to the party.  Yup, that’s eleven.  Count ‘em.


And spread out in formation for flying.


I thought that the FW-190 would gather a lot of comments, but the plane that got the most interest was the Walker ’74 Fighter.  Everyone wanted to see it fly.  I did too, as today was the maiden for it.  I have video of four maidens today, but it’s late.  I’ll cut ‘em up and post them tomorrow or Monday.

Here’re the other Cox powered planes.  First was a cool .010 powered Micro Ringmaster built by Mike Hazel.



Launched like a paper airplane.



Then there was a Medallion .09 powered All American by Mark Hanson.



A Black Widow powered Tigerkitten.



Three planes built by a gentleman whose name I didn’t get.  A Medallion .09 powered Ringmaster Jr.,  a Medallion .049 powered Little Brother, and a TD .15 powered plane that I didn’t get the name of.



A Medallion .049 powered Acrohawk.



And, even though this twin is powered by a pair of Wen-Mac’s (Boo! Hiss!), it’s still a ½A plane.


Total count was 18 Cox Powered planes, to 5 non-Cox powered planes.  A decent ratio.

This is Dave Bush, a visitor who’d not been flying in something like 40 years.  He’s interested in getting back into C/L flying, so I put him up on my Beginner Ringmaster for three flights.  I’m thinking he’s hooked.  I’m going to get him links to plans so he can build the Baby and Beginner Ringmasters, as well as what drawings I have for the 74 Fighter, and get him linked to the CEF.



Well, that’s all for now.  I want to relax for a while before bed.  Work tomorrow…

The Reporter Mark

Geez,

You guys had all the fun. Great looking bunch of planes. I don't think I have ever heard of a CL club not getting along with another CL club. Weird....

Great report Mark. Before I read it I looked at the pictures and thought, 1,2,3,4, I see at least four that gotta be Mark's planes. All of them! Man I need to replenish my 1/2A fleet. I'm really looking forward to September 1/2A day at my Huntersville club.
Thanks for the report, and will keep an eye out for our new retread if he checks in here at CEF.

Really cool looking planes. I like the Scarinzi Super Satan. I've launched some of Larry's Super Satan's. Looks like a Johnson on the nose. Some of those 1/2A's look awesome. Ken

Fun Fly

Post  RK Flyer on Sun Jul 06, 2014 11:40 am

Many thanks go to Mark for the report & Pictures!!  4th of July Flag 

Mark Hanson of the Aeroliners is working hard to include newcomers to flying control line in 1/2A & all sizes ,types of planes. He has helped me with everything and has had several Fri. Nite build /repair sessions at his home shop. I woldnt be near as far along if I didnt have his help! Thanks again Mark Hanson!

The fly in was fun and I wanted to fly but I am in the process of moving east to Somerset Ky. to be closer to all my family (10 Grand Kids). I have most of my flying gear packed & ready to go.
I'll be looking for control line clubs in the area & have located a few RC clubs allready so if anyone here kows of a C L club in the area please let me know.

Thanks to everyone on this forum, RK Flyer     Flying

Great report Mark! Glad you had decent weather. We've had breezy conditions all weekend here in the Northeast, due to "Hurricane Arthur".. it rained all afternoon/evening on Friday the 4th.

Your models all looked GREAT!!!

Richard K, best of luck with the move! You have plenty of East Coast flying buddies out this way! I wish I wasn't so far North.. the nearest CEF member to me, I believe is from New York.

Eleven aeroplanes in one car! How do you pack them all so they don't get "car rash"?

Re: Northwest Aerolines Independence Day Fly-In

Post  Ikoflex on Tue Jul 08, 2014 2:22 am

Hello All,

For those that don't know me, Ikoflex is Mark Hansen of Portland Oregon.  I use the Name Ikoflex, because it is the name of a vintage camera made by Zeiss Ikon, and I happen to like them, and work on them.

Nice article by Mark.  There was a slight inaccuracy in the picture of my two planes, however.  The All American 09 Stunt Trainer is powered by a Medallion .09, not a .049.  I built it on a lark, with plans from Richard Kennedy, and had little faith that it would be a good flyer, as the wing is very  small (140insq) and the airfoil looks a bit dated.  I had about 10 different 09s at my disposal, but chose to use the Cox Medallion, because it is light, powerful and very reliable, and best of all, the Tee Dee mounts in the same place.  So if it turned out underpowered, I could use my Tee Dee and make it work.  As it turned out, it has plenty of power and flies great!  It will do the whole OTS pattern, and will do multiple vertical and overhead eights (multiple means 5-10 consecutive).  It really is a hoot, and a nice way to relive the planes of the past with a cox engine.

Also, the Super Satan is powered by a Webra Glow Star 20! It is just about as much fun as you can have with a woody combat plane!

Oh, Despite being a local flyer, I did not get Mark's last name, and I am working up a little article for Flying Lines, and would like to use some of the photos from here, and need to give credit.

Happy Landings,
Mark

Hey Mark-Glad you finally found CEF. Welcome aboard. For some reason, maybe aging, I can't remember the "other" Mark's last name. PM him and he will get back to you.

Mark H. & the Aeroliners

Post  RK Flyer on Tue Jul 08, 2014 11:45 am

Mark H. Glad to see you've joined the Cox Forum!!   4th of July Flag

Mark is being his "unusual modest self"   lol!  by not giving a little more info , so I guess I will let everyone know that he has been flying for many years in control line & the AMA. His favorites are Combat & Carrier and he does very well in both here in Oregon. He has a basement shop full of planes & projects and his Fri. night workshops are real treat. Whatever plane /engine that needs some fixing is welcome and usually gets a group effort to have it flying soon! The Pizza & Beer afterwards at the local pizza house caps it all off!
Mark has too many engines to count and his supply of COX engines & parts is vast to say the least. He is always willing to help a newby with anything when he has the time away from his Camera Repair business!
He is an all around good guy and will bring a lot of knowledge to the forum!!

Not quite.  This is about half of my C/L planes.  I just didn't think I'd get time to fly any more than these.

I drive a Hyundai Tucson, so with the rear seats folded down they all fit. But i still do a jigsaw puzzle thing to make sure they're all nice and snug in their places and so the flight box or fuel/Windex bottles don't slide into them in the turns.

Welcome to the Forum, Mark! Hope you enjoy it here. Sorry about the mis-identification on your All American. I fixed that in the first post. My last name is McRiley. Make sure you immortalize me to future generations in your article.

You run a good fly-in, and I look forward to many more. Maybe I can make it out to Delta Park more this summer and bring the son so we can do more Cox flying.

Next Fun Fly in PDX

Post  Ikoflex on Wed Jul 09, 2014 6:37 pm

Thanks for the kind words Mark, they are appreciated.

The next fun fly event is Labor day weekend, on August 31st, 10 to 3 just like the last one. This time it is pot luck on the food, so bring what you like, and eat your fill. I am free on Sundays most weekends, but I have to work on most Saturdays. If I fly during the week I prefer to fly on Tuesday or Thursday. Pick a time, and I will show up.

I will see what I can do to make you immortal, but I think infamous will be a lot easier.

Hello All,

The independence day event was a lot of fun, and there is another fun fly at Delta Park coming up August 31st--The Labor Day Fun Fly. I was planning on bringing some cox powered planes and some bigger stuff, so I hope to see lots of other Cox Stuff from all the usual suspects.
