Once upon a time I had a similiar problem with a comet sparky. A friend suggested up elevator and right away that solved the problem. Small adjustments please.

Have a nice day.

Here are some pictures of my just (nearly) completed Cherokee Arrow peanut.   It is from the Cherokee 180 plan by Tony Ross in the plans section here at HPA, just left off the landing gear, changed the windows a bit, and added a dorsal fin.  It weighs 7.4 grams and nearly balances, but have not flown it yet.  It does need a few fiddly bits like exhaust stack, vents, etc. before the coming out ball...

VERY clean build, Ace.   (And a weight to be proud of)

As it is not at all likely that any means of suspending the effect of air-resistance can ever be devised, a flying-machine must always be slow and cumbersome. . . . But as a means of amusement, the idea of aerial travel has great promise.

Great job ACE!
I also like the prop/spinner combo. The Model looks strong for the weight.

It's a good looking little plane ACE.
The protype had a sheet fin, 3/16" wide TE made from 11 lb wood and 3 wheels with skirts....and it was in the mid 10's.
So I'm not surprised by the weight. Grin
Very cool! Grin Smiley Grin

Tony - I was going through this thread again: could you tell me what the pink 'fly girl' model is? (Page 13, reply #306)

You and John were both involved and deserve credit. Smiley
Hopefully, I didn't wear out my welcome on that one. Roll Eyes
Many,many thanks. Grin

The FlyGirl was (sadly was) a Guillows FlyBoy that my oldest daughter and I built a few years back.
It is now a pile of toothpicks.

The GEEBEE is done. Will take her out for a test flight at the next meeting.
 
The absence of the undercarriage was intentional. Could not find a suitable method of fixing the undercarriage to the wing without the possibility of breaking upon landing.

SO the GEEBEE will be doing belly landings to start with. If she behave well enough Wink I will add the undercarriage.
 
Need to lose some weight in the nose department. Will do some final sanding on the nosecone to minimise weight in the tail.
 
Regards

Mikkie, great looking Geebee.
I am intersested in hearing how it flies. Or even nicer would be a vid of the beast in flight.
I wanted to build a Beegee myself, but never came arround it...

here was my last project before the L 3 Defender I am building over on the Scale Outdoor section. Its a Chilton DW1 based on the plans here http://www.ffscale.co.uk/plans7.htm  Came out a bit chubby at 20ish grams but was very happy with the final finish. Unfortunately still waiting for a weather window to flight test

Well....    at least it's on my bench and not buried in a cornfield years ago, which was the fate of the old one.   Main difference is that #1 was built for postals, etc. and so had a wire hub; this has a OT legal wooden hub.

Thanks Jim,
I hadn't noticed the different hubs. A sure sign of an inexperienced eye.

I've just finished work on a Sterling Super Cub .  The span is 25 inches which is a 70% full size of the Plan E6.  i built E6 decades ago an its weight was well over a hundred grams.  This model comes in under 40 as I used light wood throughout.  She seems to be right on target.  Short glides in my basement show a good glide.  I'll test it outdoors today or tomorrow to be sure.

Here are Pics.

My West Wings Merlin with stripey wings. The tissue was purchased from Tiger which is a knick-knacky type shop from the land of ABBA and IKEA. I have just finished covering my West wings Jade (photo to follow) and their tissue certainly seems a lot more puncture resistant.

I don't know what you guys think but I think the quality of West Wings kits are superb. I feel they have taken up the baton left by Keil Kraft.

Regards
