Mark will have to say for sure, but I don't think he'll bar anybody from having fun on this special huge weekend of the year. Hey, if it's got a Cox engine, it's a Cox plane, right. I think Eric flew a home made plane.

I like Kim's idea.. an endurance challenge! Add the "Lindberg element" into the contest!

Eric.. you can use your BIG balloon! Do you have a horseshoe back-plate that you can bolt on there? How long can you go-round in circles.. 5 min.? 6.. 7?

Who's gonna' run a 6 x 2 LH prop? That's what mine came with.

I got my specs. from Kim I got real close and it flew well till I got stupid with it but its ready soon as I put the control wire back on it . I have horse shoe back plate but I am thinking a BW or GB would be enough time in the air for one run plus it needs a little more power . I don't have a video but there is a pic here back on page 1 un painted then after the crash on page 2 . Eric Babe Bee .049

Thanks for the feedback! I'll try to find a 'real' one and will build one, too! I figure to put a Sure Start in it with a LARGE tank! Fly for hours! Very Happy

Yup.  It'll count.  Keith Morgan sent me the plans when he first drew them up and asked if they could be used.  So long as it has a Cox engine in it, it'll be counted.

The Count Mark.  Ah--Ah--Ahhhh!

I flew my white PT-19 with the 6x2 LH prop. I was disappointed with it. I swapped it out after the first flight.

Now in ownership of a very nice PT-19 from craigslist

Post  PeterJGregory on 2/1/2016, 12:24 am

On Friday, I went and met a very nice craigslist speculator who sold me a Cox Pt-19 he found at a garage sale.
He had it all cleaned up and I will have to test the engine this week.

Let's get that date on the calendar for 2016!
What I want to do is fly it a bit at my club and try to have other members drag theirs out for the event this year.

Here you go, image attached.

Keep an eye out on eBay and Craigslist.
If you belong to a club, I bet somebody has one in the basement they'd be willing to sell.
I only had to look for about a month or 6 weeks before one came up on craigslist. Was priced at the going rate on eBay, but the gent was willing to meet me half way to cut my drive down to an hour. Plus, he's my new dealer - he hits lots of garage sales outside my territory and I told him to keep my number handy in case he scouts anything worthwhile.

Cheers - Peter

How do we go about getting a date on the calendar for an event this year? I'm beginning to talk this up at my clubs.

PT 19 event 7-27 2030...a 20 year reunion?

Post  fredvon4 on 1/31/2017, 12:12 pm

Finishing up a couple of much larger models and pulled down the Black hawk PT 19 and Wizard to decide if one or both spring builds or wait for summer visit with grand son...

Remembered this event so reread from the start in 2014...

Curious about 2015

ABout a year ago PeterJGregory asked about sched for 2016

I always enjoyed all the specialty CEF events and very glad we have a 2017 tach race upcoming...

How about resurrecting this fun copy of the Ring Master fly-a thon?

I might propose an "any weekend from June to Sept 2017" to fly and brag about PT 19 flights
This would capture almost all of us CEFers world wide, with at least one good weather weekend

The ONLY Rule is...fly any Cox plastic PT 19 or any other variant and brag all about it...extra credit for Video or post crash NTSB photos

Winner* gets an partial** expense payed vacation to Central Texas Phreds place any date of winners choosing

*There can be an unlimited number of winners select by Rusty and Kim the official CDs of this event

** Air or car travel on you... I will house, feed, and entertain you for up to 10 days... then you gotts to leave town

Feel blessed, I only let FAMILY stay 5 days before they annoy me....

OK ...so 2017 Tach race is set in motion....Thanks a big bunch Ron.... BTW I know Ron and this is a big deal to get him to CD and logistic out this annual CEF event that Mark Boesen originated with his Yahoo Cox group... I want to help in any way I can--- from afar...but could be conned into travel to Cribb's abode to help

Please enter and keep the Cox flame burning

Lets get serious this year with the OTHER CEF traditions...Jason does such a grand job keeping this site paid for and we provide the activity...let's step it up a notch or two as we near 2020

Few good web forums last this long---and I can attest this is the best one I know of ,,, for me it seems a bit ironic,,,, that Jason joined his own forum on my birthday in 2010---- and it took me 13 months later to find CEF and join

I'm down for that! Another PT19 Day sounds great.
I have a piece or two that will be a challenge to fix on my PT19, actually my son's plane. He busted it trying to do a loop on the last PT19 Day. But I'm convinced there is nothing busted that I cannot fix. Mine i... was hanging in the shop, slowly dropping parts as the rubber bands rotted, and I noticed a week or so ago that the whole thing is in a heap on the floor now. So something has to be done about that, or I may get drummed out of the Cox Lovers' Corps.
Rotten Rusty

Hey Michigan man

If you can survive 5 days in this sheep and goat herder town/county without going bat crap bezerk ---you can indeed claim secondary Texas citizenship

Beware ... I have been here twenty two years now, and the locals still regard me and our, born here, children as a Yankee interlopers

screw em....

If-n you-all come to visit ---I will assure you the most back woods and mundane NOTHING Happening experience of your life...

Watch an episode of Justified or OUTSIDERS... contrast this.... ONE and ONLY 1 murder in last 23 years... was most likely justified IMO

15 year old male Teenager beat the death out of his adult male molester...convicted because he hid the body and it was found

I leave the keys in the car and brag about it...we have never ever locked any door or window on this house other than to see if the keys and latches worked

All 4 of my dogs will readily show you where the good stuff is

All my arsenal of guns... A LOT of different weapons and ammo... are long time now securely in a safe.. well away from grand kids hands

Dry county (but a few WET Towns) every time I buy cases of beer and boxes of booze on Fort Hood and drive to my micro ranch, I am technically violating some insane transport of alcohol law...

When I moved here in 1979 the first time for assignment to Fort Hood--- driving around with an open bottle of beer between legs was OK--- but a 24 pack in the trunk was against the law

Screwy Baptist derived alcohol laws... still exist to this day...Butt heads

You know why I can't buy a 6 pack of beer on Sunday before the foot ball game?.. Southern Baptist's made is so I had to wait until THEY got out of church...Like I was likely to buy ALL of it before they had a go at the beer aisle...sheesh!

Fred, Freddy, the Frederman (Frasier Crane) why don't you tell us what you really think. Smile Smile

Your part of Texas sounds pretty good to some of us West Virginians. But you know that. Two twenty year old somethings dumped a girls body in the pond behind my house before we bought the place then returned days later to pull her out and bury her some place else. Someone ratted them out and and one is paying the price while the other is still running around in his pickup truck. I think WV is #1 in the nation for meth labs and perscription drug abuse. I lock my doors and I'm extremely well armed.

That said, I have great neighbors and I have never had a lick of trouble.

But, I do have a flyable Cox PT and at the appointed time on the appointed date I will give it a try.
