I've had Bossy Boots out a couple of times this week.
After a brief argument about which direction she was going to fly, (I wanted her to go left, she wanted to go right) we came to a compromise and she's now doing what SHE wants to do. (Sound familiar?)
Much to my surprise, she needed no ballast, and the only trimming required was a bit more downthrust.
It was all much easier than expected once, I'd stopped meddling with her.
The field I was using is only suitable for short trimming flights, so We'll see how she performs indoors on Sunday at the indoor nats.

Thanks Matt.
She tips the scales at 17 grams without rubber.
Pete Iliffe had a nocal Bv141 which flew very well. He won a comp with it at the indoor nats a few years ago. It took a bit of juggling to start with, but that seems to be common with nocals in my experience.

I saw Bill's Bossy Boots flying at the weekend.
It's flying performance was far better than I had expected - it gets up there like a 'proper' Bostonian!

Here's one I the shots I took - it was a bit too dark in the hall for a flying shot.

Fantastic Bill B!! did you borrow some dimensions off of the Blohm and Voss fighters? did you have to make the motor stick and fuselage pod the same weight?

Matt. Only the inspiration came from the B & V, the rest is dimensioned to fit the rules. If you look closely, you will see that the motor 'stick' is not far off the centre of the wing and the cabin is up against the dihedral break.

Russ, I'm not bribing you twice!

BillB,

I wonder if this could be a payload model?

Nice job! Have you mentioned the wheel construction?

...and, how big are the cheques? Grin
