WSTE

Post  GWILLIEFOX on Fri Sep 21, 2018 9:22 am

Getback,  I just use standard mix 1/3 kero, 1/3 castor, 1/3 John Deere starting fluid, a tad of ignition improver.

Last Sunday, I took the World's Smallest Travelling Engine to the PSO Musicians of Steel 5K Run/Walk.  There I met PSO Cellist Bronwyn Banerdt's father Bruce.  Bruce is the Principal Investigator for the Mars Insight Mission. ( mars.nasa.gov )  Like many others, Bruce tried model airplanes early on.  He's holding the WSTE!

Now I'm getting stuff ready for MECAs 2018 National Collecto this Sunday, Sept.23 a the AMA Museum in Muncie, IN.  9:00AM.  I'll have the WSTE in a Veco Commanche America Class Payload FF (took the electric motor off, but the .010 on).  I should have it back in the mail by the 29 of September.  Sorry to have interrupted it's journey for soo long.

I have finally finished up with the WSTE.  DCKRSN is next on the list as far as I know, so please send me shipping instructions.

I just took a picture of the little guy with his brothers and cousins:


Last weekend I had the WSTE at the AMA headquarters in Muncie, In.  I held my Comanche with the engine mounted in front of the headquarters.  You can see Ruediger, the PAA pilot smiling in the cabin.  Also a shot in front of my brick:




We had the MECA National Collecto on Sunday and I had the Travelling kit on my display table.  This was also the registration day for the SAM Champs. The engine was mounted in my Veco Comanche PAA Load model.  The fliers got a real kick out of the WSTE program!


Later on, out to the field.  Unfortunately, I was by myself as it was actually far too windy to fly.  So, I got no very good pictures.  I had to get the plane as stable as I could, hang the transmitter, and find the plane and snap away.  I got one distance shot with the plane going away, and a landing shot where I darned near hit myself.  But the engine ran fine and flew the Comanche nicely, even with the added (though small) weight of the servos, receiver and batteries.  I can say from experience, the .010 almost has the power of a Cub 049X!



Sorry to have delayed it so long. What a great program!
