Well not today but yesterday and day before, trimmed out a new BMJR Starduster E-36. With the Cobra 2203-2800 and a 6x5 prop it accelerates straight up then drops into a nice left hand glide. Nano Tech 300mah 2s. Turnigy 12 A. esc. Hubin timer. Turnigy 3.7 g. DT servo. 162.3 g. RTF. Tissue fuse and fin. Solite wing and stab. Many thanks to "Coach" Bob Sifleet for trimming expertise.

Had a Great day at the test field yesterday...Getting ready for the King Orange in Florida. Re trimmed class A Jay's Bird that I folded the wing on at the Nats (AFTER 3 maxes) testing 6 second engine run with short DT...DAAA TOO short!! Flew pretty good. Got out class B Provincial with Green Head 201 that I had never run. Not bad ,kept feeding a little incidence into it and left thrust ...got it going pretty good. Got out the modified Satelite 450 with the Conquest 15 which all all over the sky in Muncie. Two perfect test flights and put it away...Have no clue what it was doing at the Nats other than it was the Nats!
Soooo for me, a 3 for 3 flying session makes for a fun drive home.

Did these curvey bits on the SparrowHawk with Kingspan insulation foam. Reasonably light, and very easy to sand. Eze Dope and Esaki finish it off nicely.

Nice work dieterperiperi  Smiley ... I find Kingspan very crumbly just when using it for insulation, so I think you have done very well to finish the fillets as fine as you have.

Three days ago, I spent 4 hours testing and tuning the new "AMA Alpha" rubber powered plane.  I was in a low ceiling gym so I had to keep it controlled.  Best time with 1500 turns on the supplied rubber was 42 seconds.  All up weight was 16 grams.  A friend also worked with his outdoors, and later made some mods to get the weight down to 11.5 grams.  Looks like a minute flight is in the future.  The plane comes with a 20 to 1 winder that is actually quite nice, and a true bargin for the price of the entire package.

Sold two models today, PAAGEBOY with a real MILLS.75 and a SPORTY with a DC Spitfire.  Both F/F of course.
Both had not been flown for several years so now they may get lightweight R/C gear into them for another life after lots of F/F flying I had with them.

Plenty more to go if anybody wants to pick them up......PM me if interested.

I've not been posting much of late .... but I do have a few projects on the go.
I've had a spate of spinner vac-forming lately.

One is targeted .... the other two are more 'serendipitous'!  Smiley
The small one is a Fairey Fulmar... ish .... the same as the plan, but a little sharper than some aircraft show.
The other is pretty good for a model I have started drawing .... the mould is from sycamore and was mounted on a small spindle.
I couldn't get it as sharp as required without the spindle breaking (ask me how I know) with my laziness in using blunt tools and laziness in not upping the lathe speed  Roll Eyes
The sharper one is what I was shooting for! Having said that, the actual aircraft's spinner has more of a 'kick' in the shape that I do not care for! ... so I toned it down.

I've been testing transmitter and receiver batteries for my RC models. I have a feeling I'll be buying more soon. Maybe I'll go to Eneloops ($ ouch). I gather they're supposed to last a long time. I've found that age has only a weak correlation with battery condition. I've had them go bad at 2 years and at 12.

Must admit I find Enloops pretty good and worth the extra loot.

Nice spinners Russ - so is a Fulmar a project - odd coincidence but I came across a plastic kit for one and thought it might be a good choice for a FF model - have given the plastic kit away incidentally to a chap doing some decorating for us.
