It looks marvellous, and absolutely rock-steady, even allowing for the slow-motion replay!

Here is an outdoor flight vid kindly taken by David Parker a few weeks ago just before sunset. Surprisingly she pretty much flew straight off the board (unlike my recent Pistachio Corsair!). The PB2Y seems stable and will hold a turn, the twin rudders are large and very effective, so any adjustment needs to be miniscule. I just love these Atomic Workshop electric systems, they are featherweight, and infinitely adjustable. The little V10 motors buzzing away on the leading edges are working well, with power on this flight being only about 60% of whats available, and duration turned down to about 25 seconds (max is 2 minutes!). I had the 'ramp-down' setting a bit steep, and she glides in dead-stick at the end of the flight. The resonance that you can hear in the flight is the props being very slightly out of balance, I kinda like it!

Ha ha. Actually I did do fairly well in Art Ralph. I loved it, and went on to Art School too.

It's certainly a nice flying model Richard. Stable and with a nice glide. Good luck next month.

I'm in awe, of the model, how it flies, and especially of your skill in building and finishing.

I would love to have 1/100th the level of skill in your hands!!

No it wasn’t Bill.  In fact it is the first video I have taken on my iPhone and if I have a slow motion facility I have absolutely no idea how to operate it.   It was very much a point and shoot thing and in fairness I am surprised it came out as well as it did.  So the credit is all Richards.  Incidentally Richard was only a foot or four from me so it was also a “land at your feet touchdown”.

Unsynchronised engines Lurk?  Crikey, does it do sound as well?  Must watch it again. That could be useful as it would make the filming of one of the Memsahibs tantrums much more fun.

Yes Richard good luck in Nederland.  I suspect some of the folk have been on this topic and will be all agog!

Thanks to all for the nice comments on the Coronado.
Thanks Dan, but you wouldn't say that if you saw just how many mistakes I made whilst building the thing. The skill level is decidedly average, but I stuck at it!

Really FANTASTIC, Richard!  Too bad I'll again miss the Nijmegen meet due to various issues (all pleasant, fortunately), but I'm sure there will be enough videos Grin.

"........if you saw just how many mistakes........"

Don't recall any really standing out when I saw the "bones" but I think it is like when you paper a room.  All  you see are the one or two tiny tears  etc.  which anyone else would never find.

Hi David,

from what I see, as a result, I think the video is indeed in slower speed than actual, regardless how it may have happened, probably accidentally.

The motion of Richard and Chris are far too unreal to be actual speed. They look like walking on the moon  Grin

The speed of the model does not help a lot, because I imagine it is a floater anyway...

But again comparison with the outdoor flight does show a speed difference. In two weeks' time I'll have the pleasure of seeing it myself  Smiley

Ahhh thank you Russ, that explains it because by the 70’s I had given up playing with little dolls as by then and indeed for some while had discovered that the bigger ones had more places of interest.

Thank you George - will nvestigate - but I am pretty sure that it is not like that on my computer.  Probably young Crossley has been having a fiddle just to enhance things.  You are talking about the outdoor one aren’t you?  I did not shoot the indoor one.  Neither Chris nor Richard are in my video.

OH, I guess then both me and Bill are in error. I am pretty sure he was talking about the indoor one, so I thought the same without checking (or thinking...).

No, your video is fine  Wink

The indoor one is the one in question, it has no sound either, also a result of slow motion.

George

PS. I just checked the messages, and as a matter of fact Bill is addressing the question to Richard. Your reply had me fooled...

It was a mere jest, reflecting the fact that it is a remarkably slow and realistic flyer.
