Right Tim - now I remember - didn't Dave do the Sorceress? Good luck with life, flying and your indoor efforts Tim.

Sorry ZK - I think it was built basically over a 3-view. I would have drawn up the formers...  but long lost I think.

On the 40 minute drive home from Barkston Heath, there is one 100 yard section where the sky is obscured by trees. At the precise moment we entered it, there was an almighty roar directly overhead and we caught the briefest glimpse of the Lancaster and Hurricane passing overhead. I was vexed.

What a pity, but the sound allone must have been gorgeous.

Today thunderstorms have been forecasted for the evening. Somehow it didn't happen... Therefore I packed some planes and went to the field for some flying.
Dead calm air and some nice light was waiting for me.

Its the smaller Se5 (18" Spanwith) from Mike Midkiff (Aerographics Kit). It is very reliable... just take it from the shelf and let it fly...

FLYACE1964, yes, its a peanut size Pitts special. I had quite some problems with trimming this beast. But I have new hope now. Just got a new idea what I could try to improve the flights of it. It's not the problem of the plane, its more my poor trimming ability Roll Eyes
Its from this plan https://outerzone.co.uk/plan_details.asp?ID=9864

Don, thanks but at the moment I am flying my old models most of the time. My building slowed down due to the increased work load at the office....  Sad I hope to build more in the future again, in the meantime you have to live with my old planes Wink

Jon, build it, you won't be disappointed!

 Grin the grandkids just left after a fun day's lunch and flying
we flew buzzard jr a high wing stick model and it did tight circles. one flight put it on my lower roof and my son was able to rescue it.
then we flew sparky and it's either under powered or not generating enough lift because it did a powered glide to the ground
j bell p40  got a couple of flights in before the motor peg holder broke.
orange crush flew well, once into the trees and onto my upper roof. we had to go fisjhing for that one.

all in all a fun day

Hi Roman

What Staggerwing is that?  I started a dimer several years ago.  The framework was some of my best work.  Came home from a trip and the whole thing was reduced to matchsticks by the cat!  Want to get around to trying it again.  Maybe this fall after I get all these projects off my plate.  It's a Rich Weber plan from 2006.  Didn't see it in the Plans Gallery.  If someone wants, I'll email it to them to get it posted.

I got this off the builders plan web site. Its a Scientific Hornet. When built to plan the nose block is straight a head, so i had to add a bit down thrust to the trust button and the nose block. I need to get it going more to the right. I think the glide could be better.

bsadonkill, great looking blue-yellow bird.
It looks a bit chubby, I like chubby airplanes!
I am sure you will sort out the last trimming issues soon.

Tried mounting a camera on my modified Bob White Wakefield, below, seems like it works, there's a test flight from today at the end of this video where I show how I mounted it, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CVT-IOd6Gak
Next flight was nearly 5 minutes, and I got both head cam and plane cam video of it, will get that up shortly.

Thanks, it is interesting to see it from the airplane's perspective! I just put up the only one full flight I had after that one (there was a heat wave. I tried to cut out as much of it as I could, but you can still see that my face is covered with sweat in the first video!). Did almost 5 minutes, so having the camera on board doesn't hurt the flying too much! Gives a nice view of the field, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aBtZIjvpcp4

Flyguy -

Bravo!

Perfect viewing angle on the camera.

I am glad your Wakefield avoided that soccer goal when it landed.

Thanks for that Larry. The Wake handled that weight and drag without any problems. it's interesting to see and ear the sounds of flight from the model's point of view. It held height really well for the first part of the flight and it was interesting to see and hear the speed change with the small stalls from the small changes in lift/turbulence. Boy the rubber motor make a racket though Smiley
