Wirdguy, EXACTLY!  I am trying a new technique, that being taking off my shoes and socks and using my feet.  Problem is that my pictures will probably stink.  I know,  Boooooooo!  Caley

Be prepared for a sudden drop if you also try to pick up your DT lighter...

I agree with Caley.  There is no way I can fly and record.  When I tried, I got some great vids of the trees, my feet, the sky etc, but no airplane.  Plus I have no clue where it lands.

Incredible as usual...will this one show up on your Website ?

Assuming it flies (fingers crossed) I'll put the plan on the website.  It's drawn up in Autocad but will take a bit of sorting out to get it on a set of useable plan sheets.  Plus there are lots of labels and notes to add, so it's likely to be a month or two.

I cheated a bit and moved the booms out by half an inch..

And you got some more horizontal tail area, as well. That's excellent, and looks like it should be that way!

These are three models I sent already.

The red one is the Lockheed Orion,from the left you have three shots of the Wanderer, and the last one is a Souper P-30.


Sorry I didn't get it right the first time.  The two endurance models really go but the Orion was damaged at Gainesville,Texas contest recently. Hope to fix it back to flying status shortly after this fall.

So far the Wanderer goes up real great on the Czeck P-30 prop I use. THe wood one was broken when it hit a city street. THe 14 strand motor made from 1/8th Tan Super sport rubber really puts it up ratherquickly. Wing is set at the front limit of the location shown on the plan. Still know many more turns will be put into the process. Length of the motor is about 22 inches.

Since I compete in Flying Aces events I will enter this in the Old Time Rubber Stick. It is possible I guess for other competitions but I am unaware of what SAM catagory.

This is my first model with two verticle stabilizers so I have been really working to tame this one. A great climb out and not much float when the rubber unwinds it likes to head straight down. The wing is at the most forward location recomended by the designer. I may need more incidence and that will probably help. I have right and downthrust and it doesn't stall in the climb so it will remain where it is . I don't know about adjusting the rudders to make the turn hold the nose up in the glide.

Got any suggestions ?

Allen,
Thanks for the info re: OT Rubber Stick.
When the Rubber unwinds it likes to head straight down? Do you mean a nose dive? Other?
Thanks

Just finishing up this one that's been sitting in my box o' bones for about 7 yrs now. It's the 15" span DPCM laser cut kit of the DeHavilland DH-5. I started covering it several years ago with a tissue that has a very pronounced weave to it. Not quite silkspan, but certainly close to it. It's bit heavier than I like.

I'll be taking this to Geneseo next week to see if I can get it into the air.

A REAL modeler... even his pizza comes in kit form!

Nice work!  Looks like a tricky little beast to align.

Jim,
Looks great!
Something looks a little different about your prop carving at the hub area. Also, the blades look very thin. I'm guessing you didn't use Balsa. White pine maybe? Or?

Prop is balsa, Dave.   I didn't have an oddment of pine of suitable length so reverted to a balsa block...  blades are of 'average' thickness for me  for that medium.

As for the hub ... went looked at it, much same as usual i think. it may be that the binding for the Garami cluch makes it look a little more rounded in the photo?

Best to Annie and self - and the Giz
