Bellanca looks great, as does that super little Caudron. I really like the Turkish Scout too, Tim. You don’t see many of those! Good job on the pilot as well.

Hi all
What a pleasure this build was - thanks Mike - here are some pics of the finished item. Please mark me up for a completion (with pilot). Flight videos pending.
We have a ScaleMasters F/F scale event in a few weeks - so I hope to have it flying for that.
cheers
Tim

Agree - it's a real gem of a Scout and I'm sure it'll fly well too.

Having watched the hawks circling in the blue over the garden earlier I thought I'd better take my Comper Swift to my field for a second trimming session. After all, why should the birds have all the fun?

As planned after last time, I reduced the motor from 4 strands of 1/8 to 2 of 3/16. Straight away it was much happier. It does tend to doff in as the power runs out though.
Here is a still and a 3 little vids. In the first one it loses its noseblock completely as it gets to its zenith and then floats down without it like a sycamore seed. I might be in trouble if it ever does that in longer grass! Launches are probably a bit dodgy due to trying to hold my phone at same time. Second video is same trim but with the noseblock wedged on better. In the third video, to try and stop it spiraling in at the end, I added a bit of left rudder. It sort of worked, but not such a nice fight otherwise. Anyway, a very enjoyable little session. Summer time* and the living is easy!

*British Summer Time that is. Despite the weather I do know it's still only March. Sleet showers forecast here next week.

Lovely.  Wish my rubber powered models flew that predictably.

Isn't it nice that just as the shackles are gradually being removed that large parts of the UK get a couple of almost perfect flying days?

Couldn't agree more .... good to see that some have taken advantage.
I've not managed it, but did manage to meet up at the estate where I work for a marvellous walk with the grandkids after work ..... I did point up at the sky and comment that it has been too long since I have seen one of my models up there.

Predictably, but maybe not quite that predictably. As I'm sure you all noticed (but were much too polite to mention) that 'third video' link was the same as the second one, so here's the one where I added a little left rudder. I think I liked it better without the tweak though.

Great work Pete - I note from 1st video that jettisoning the noseblock is an effective DT...  a very soft landing

Dan - thank you. it was such a fun build I've decided to go again. Pete the Comper looks like a steady flyer - great to see the videos.
When this cook-up started the first plan that attracted me was an Embryo thing called 'Yellow Cab'. Then I got distracted by all those scale things.
Anyway - once the Bristol was done I had an empty desk again. i'm envious of the guys doing their own designs on other threads so I'm keen to do one of those again - but here I am sticking bits of a Yellow Cab together. Think it will be a fun model to fly at our upcoming event in a couple weeks.

Tim,
       Another gem that is so atmospheric. All the more reason for a visit to Scalemasters when the allow us out. We have managed local flying and a North Island meeting is going ahead on the 16-18 April that I am looking forward to even if the drive to Carterton is a long one as it is just short of Wellington. All we need is some good weather.
Compers all seem to fly well I currently have 4 servicable including a Moorhouse peanut one and one CO2 one based on the Aerographics kit plus one that is being repaired after the Nationals after a stall that was self inflicted demolished the nose. Ol' Ironsides photos attached I realise it is off topic.

After allowing the new CNC to distract me for a couple weeks, I'm finally back to work on the Broussard. Created and mounted the air scoop, got the tail feathers and wing covered.  Also managed to make the radiator, was amazed at myself that I was able to sand the thing to shape from a solid block without breaking it. Except for the cross brace of course.

Gathering courage to start the fuselage now.

Broussard looking great Dan - just a bit of Easter progress on the Yellow Cab. Yes a relaxing build!
And doesn't need to look like a real aeroplane like your Ironsides does Ricky!

Nice work on the Cab. Here's a screenshot of the Embryo rules from the 2020-21 FAC rulebook, available at: http://flyingacesclub.com/wp/rules-forms/official-fac-rules/

        Been off Hip Pocket for a long time working on C/L and RC and discovered this cookup today. I flew control line and free flight with Mike when I lived in Massachusetts and shared a tent at Geneseo when we were there together. Here's my peanut version of his Bristol Scout.

Hi Ara - thanks for the Bristol pics - your front end looks a bit tidier than mine! Nice finish. How did it fly?

Thanks again Oliver for getting this cook-up going. Very enjoyable! Thanks too Ian for your work on the spreadsheets. Please mark me down as completed for the Yellow Cab.
I have a nice trio of Mike Nassise models now for a local event we have next weekend - so hopefully some flight reports/pics/video if the weather is kind!
Now time to get out the deckchair and cheer you guys on from the sidelines!

      Here's two more of Mike's designs.

        The P-51 is reduced to peanut and modified for a removable wing held on with two nylon 2-56 screws. I've flown it both indoors and outdoors. The Hellcat is a terrific flyer. With it, I was able to survive the first round in WW II combat at Geneseo for the first time. It was a traumatic flight. On my way to the flight line the too loose motor peg had fallen out. Had there not been a delay in the start, which gave me time to dash back for a new peg, I wouldn't have made the first launch. If the peg was found missing at the 'wind 'em up' command, there would have been a grown man in tears among the contestants!

      Tim,
       
        The Bristol showed promise on it's first outdoor flights. Needs more trimming but it's been a hangar queen for most of it life.
