Here's my Beancraft banana. It fly's best so far on the yogurt prop with one loop of 1/8".

Here's some pics of my free wheeling catch taken from the Eaglet embryo plan. It works the best and NEVER stops the prop from free wheeling.

The model has a new nose block and a 6" grey plastic prop. A 1/8" loop twice the distance gives great flights now.

(Sorry about the close out of focus shots)

Nice Beancraft buildawyvern - still on my Bostonian build list.

What sort of times are you getting?

I usually fly my Bostonians indoors so have less need for a free wheeler - I will have to try that arrangement sometime though.

Thanks!

I haven't timed it yet but it's probably around 45 seconds to 1 minute. It flys much higher with the grey prop so I may get better times. I have flown it indoors which doesn't need the freewheel but the the model is a "duel purpose" flyer.

The attached is a copy from the Eaglet plan of the freewheel setup. I didn't use the winding hook but other than that it's the same.

Sadly this model flew O.O.S. last Saturday in Apple Valley, Ca. 4/16/2011 No DT either.
It was the best flight it ever made. I must build another!

The only OOS flight I had was with a single-channel RC plane that started out as a rubber powered thingie, and ended up with an 020 on it. Man, was it a beautiful free flight model when the radio crapped out!

So -- do you get the same mixture or horror and pride watching it drift out of sight as I did?
