Dew on The Bee!

Post  Kim on Tue Jul 22, 2014 10:16 am

My Lazy Bee had been resting peacefully for a while, with the plastic RTF's and B.O.T.'s getting all the action, so I decided to drag it out of it's hibernation.  

I've been making a point of swapping engines on the 14-year-old plane, and had bolted up an Ebay Enya .09 to a new engine mount a while back, but hadn't gotten the thing test-flown.  .09's and .10's are just about the right size for this plane if you want a gentle cruiser.

Waking up around 4 am, with coffee cup in hand, I cranked up the power in the Skunk Works and set about setting up the Bee with it's new mill.  

The Lazy Bee got four flights in with the Enya, drifting through the fog and 110% humidity, and pulling a few Hot-Dog turn-arounds in the front yard.


The Bee sits on my dew-covered stand, waiting to be fueled and launched.





Like it's owner, the Bee is showing it's age !!!!



Flying a lot of unthrottled-dead-stick-landing-everytime airplanes REALLY makes a guy appreciate the luxury of that 3rd channel !!!

If I was a girl, I'd say, "That's so cuuuuute!." Thank goodness I'm not. But I do like the exhaust pipe on the little bugger.

Thanks Rusty!

This is a short one I made up this morning. The Bee has had a LOT of tailpipes over the years...the longest one going all the way back to the rudder, making cool gurgling sounds when I flew the Bee off water !

Cool man!! I like that throttle set the further my fingers away the better, does that expansion chamber set have that popping sound to it ? I have a set up that was gave to me with an OS i think ABC 40 and it is sweet the friend of mine had put the prop on backwards and it still almost took off a bi-plane  lol!  I am glad to see U having fun, Darn garden is taking a lot of my time / energy .

Got some more time on the Enya-Bee...may have to try it again without it's long tailpipe!

Did some laps at sundown yesterday over at Wayne's house, then finally got some video this morning.  Need to fiddle with the engine a bit more!
