Hi Guys. Thank you for all the tips and suggestions.

I agree that putting the engine upside down will look the best, but then I need to build a whole cowl and nose for it and I am not that confident in building yet. I would not even know where to start.

I was thinking of mounting it normally and just adding a plastic cowl like some of the ones in the first round.

I will have to sit and think a bit before starting this phase.

I just re-read the post I put up regarding Jim's plans, rudders and such  and I feel I need to apologize.

When I read it this morning, I felt it came across as somewhat snarky and sarcastic, and that was NOT AT ALL what I intended!

Jim, your planes are very clever, well designed and built. When I said I felt that you are a sharp guy and that I can't wait to see what you are up to, I meant it very sincerely, but the way it was written it could be perceived as being sarcastic. That is in NO WAY what I intended, and if it did come across that way to anyone, especially Jim, I sincerely apologize.

Mike

No need for an apology, no offense taken. Thank you.

Test ran the engine with the sealed intake, numbers are the same as when it was mounted on Miss Ashley. The 35% nitro is attacking the rustoleum in places. The cowl also split from trying to tuck the filter into it, I can glass it on the inside.

Hahaha! When you just kind of sit there staring at it with glazed eyes and your mouth slightly ajar. JIm does that to me now and then. Roddie's Bearcat did too. We really have some artful builders, Theo is one of our newer ones too. He's really good and a fast learner.  My planes look nice, but in a utilitarian sort of way. Maybe the dirty fingernail crowd lusts over mine Rolling Eyes .

That's a very nice built model Jim. What would be the advantage of fixing the belcranck to the upper wing? more stable flight?

Hey, where are the first 30 or so pages of this thread?

Thanks,
I have my theory about having the bellcrank above the vertical center of gravity increasing speed but mostly it was "ease of assembly". lol! 

I noticed yesterday the topic had been split, the rest is on page two of "cox discussions".

I started cutting out my second entry, to be powered by a Hot Rod Space Hopper. It's a Airtractor 802 gunship:
CEF speed contest Design Discussions (2014) - Page 6 HFf3CI3
CEF speed contest Design Discussions (2014) - Page 6 NoXhrRM

With a 12" fuselage the wing scales out to 20"x2.25" for a dead on 45 squares. The long thin wing is theoretically more aerodynamic. I wonder at what point does frontal area of the model outweigh the advantage of a low aspect (long thin) wing?

One of our club guys, David Smith flew his speed plane at Triple Tree yesterday. It's a 21 proto speed. I e-mailed him to find out the line length and engine, so I'll post that when I find out. This mother was Loud! Listen to it slice the air on the close passes. 26 laps and he's leaning back against the pull.

That's my guess too. I'll let you know when he returns my e-mail.

You can find NovaRossi, R&B, or Rex engines, good choice for speed models...
