Well shoot. It seems thee is an error in the Original P-18 Cruiser plan I uploaded yesterday. Ugh. I failed to show the wing offset in the posted drawing. I have corrected this issue and posted a corrected version in The Gallery.

Nice job Bill!  Nice to see your handiwork back in action; the video is a good pitch for your design.  Just downloaded your revised plan and may have to slice some balsa after the Easter egg and chocolate buzz wears off Roll Eyes

I think there's an old Peck ROG prop assembly in my indoor box of leftovers, don't recall its Ø offhand, but maybe that'll meet spec...

Thanks for posting.

Can someone tell me when P-18 will be flown at Nats?  I am guessing that it will be with the other heavier models on Saturday or Sunday but I don't see it on the version of the schedule that I have.
Thanks,
Billy

Hi, I'm Bud LAYNE, this years CD for the Indoor NATS. P!8 is scheduled for Saturday morning, goes on until noon. I have 50 kits from Mr. Marcos which are the same kits as last year. There's no entry fee for kids. Tables and chairs are provided as well as everything they need to fly, winders, etc. so come! You are welcomed.   Smiley

Following up with the AMA as I thought this was already posted, but it seems not. Hopefully in the next day or two.

I know Bud typed Mr. Marcos above, but these are from John McGrath from lasercutplanes.com.

Thanks guys!  One of my former students and I are planning to be there Thursday afternoon through Sunday.  We are planning to fly - or, at least attempt to fly -  LPP, A6, Wright Stuff, and maybe ministick.  P18 looked like it would fit within our limited skill set and I wanted to make sure we weren't missing it by getting there later in the event.
My kids fly the TSA HS event - would it be a bother if my student brought his TSA plane too?

I would say to go for it. They are roughly similar to Wright Stuff are they not?

Great!  They're very similar except ROG and a 170 mm commercially-available (trimmed or modified as desired) plastic prop.

Looking at the last copy of the schedule I have, Thursday afternoon will be the light stuff, F1D, etc.
You can certainly can use some of the surrounding low bay space to practice as you wouldn't want to run into an F1D.
Friday Saturday and Sunday all have viable time slots where these could be flown.

Regards.

Thanks!  We only plan to watch on Thursday - never seen an F1D or any of the really light models fly except in videos so it will be a thrill for us just to spectate.

I have only just caught this. Great video, beautiful trim - terrific place to fly and entertain kids. i did think you were being brave though, flying with the fans running.

My former student that is coming to the Nats with me flew his Carney P18 today in our 18-foot gym.  Consistent 1:30 on 20" loop of 0.070 rubber and very heavy at 9.5 grams w/o the motor.  He plans to build another lighter one before Rantoul.  We can't wait try it in a 45' site.
Same young man flew his A6 4:13 a couple weeks ago.  We're both looking forward to our first big contest.

That's impressive. He will do great at USIC.

Let me know how you and your student do/did. 
I just started a new TSA flight endurance student today.  Just starting the transition from gliders to rubber power.

If this is who I think it is, he set a new record for A6 in Senior Cat2.

I have a question about the tail fin. The plans show it offset to the left but the images on this site appear to have the fin inline with the fuselage. Which is the best way to go. Thanks

The planes we made from Don Mace's P-18 Hawk plans used an offset fin.
