Thinking Re: Flying a pattern on the Rescue Nobler

Post  RknRusty on Sun Aug 09, 2015 9:38 pm

I opened up new cooling vents in the cowl. It made all the difference I need in my engine run. It still speeds up about the time I start the horsepower maneuvers, but that's okay with me, it's probably my non-uniflow venting. I haven't got a lap time on either of the two conditions yet. My launch RPM is 10.8-11K, just like the Oriental. Both planes weigh about the same, 43 and 45 ounces, the Oreo being the latter. And they both use the same prop.
Here is a picture of my new vents. Before, it was all blowing out of the back of the cowl, right in front of the LG wires. I just realized that's hidden in the picture by the cushion the plane is resting on. What you see under the holes is the plastic fuel tank with a white foam rubber pad on the right side.



In the video, I hope what you see sort of mirrors my recent estimation and description of my skills. I can do each of the stunts very well at times, but just need to start grouping them together in individual flights. This flight was pretty good, though Wayne had to run around with the shifting wind to get the best perspectives, so it's a bit bumpy.
I flew more flights in one day today, than I ever have before.

It's totally normal for a standard vent tank to lean the run as the head pressure changes. As you probably already know.

Good Flying!

Looked Good to Rusty , and that was the best rolling landing I have seen you do , even though it wasn't 2-4 stroking It seem to have good power . Those over head 8 s I love looks like the plane isn't even on lines just up there flying around ,nice , seems to have just one burp and were landing , guess its all about being ready for it . Makes me want to get on that Akromaster so I can get some larger plane in the air Cool Thanks as always , Eric

Thanks Eric. It was breaking 4-2 through the sq8. But it might depend on your computer's sound system. It had pretty much leaned out in the V8. Yeah, one hiccup and she shut off. I'm getting about 10 laps after the pattern.

Yea.. having good speakers hooked to your computer makes a lot of difference. I could definitely hear the FP 4-2-4'ing. It seemed like a great engine-run to me.

Rusty.. you're covering all the bases man! Even training for flying with distractions! I'll tell you what.. When you take your hat off and tilt your head back on those over-heads.. I saw myself falling on my a$$.. Laughing

Here's Wayne flying the IDS. Intermediate Death Star. Part TEOSAWKI and part Ukey, a May-December coupling Lol. He used the wing core from the Gotcha Streak III, and larger than the Ukey, with the moments numbers and other dimensions, like the huge stab from the TEO. Here it is next to a Ukey.

Thinking Shapes and pullouts, my idle observations and frustrations

Post  RknRusty on Wed Aug 12, 2015 10:19 pm

I've been working on shapes and intersections for so long now, and had finally gotten really accurate intersections and round equally spaced 8s, etc. and was so happy congratulating myself... but now that I am trying so hard to get my bottoms consistently at 5' high, I'm blowing my intersections and my loops aren't as round as they were. This PA practice never fails to remind me how much there is to a good pattern. Last week I was thinking, "Yeah boy, this is starting to look closer to Advanced." Then, this week, trying to polish one little thing has once again cut me down to size.

I just watched the vid. of Wayne flying the IDS , And to watch him pull out at five or so ft. makes me cringe affraid that's real close to the end of the day flying for me . He flys a nice pattern for sure just jetting that style of his in there too , looks like he's riding a Harley D down the rode with no care in the world and those last few laps while not looking at the plane Cool , Rusty you hang in there with him and you will get it I am sure .
