It was a glorious day for flying, sadly I was up at 3am to drive 2.5 hours for a 6am start, then 3 hour drive to the next job, and just got home (8pm). Might get in early enough tomorrow to try the Fokker. Maybe *on knees with hands clasped*


Start with votive offerings, then pray... then just go for it anyway!!  Grin

Have finally got around to sorting out an alternative to flickr for video hosting. And here's the only decent footage I have of the Lacey M-10 at Newbury last month.  Motor is 18", 2 strands 3/32". This test flight is 250 turns.  https://vimeo.com/330585819

Lovely flight Lurk!

80% of calculated max of your rubber length is 1500 turns, so no reason why you shouldn't achieve over a minute ROG with your Lacey!

i.e. 6x250 turns = 1500 turns => 6x11 secs = 66 secs, based on the videoed flight!

Look forward to seeing you at the next indoor meeting.

Agree with Jack - it looks good Lurk. Hopefully no power or torque hassles that you can't overcome as you up the power.

Lovely flight...
Ta.  More than a little help received from that Abl chap cos I'm a bumpkin when it comes to trimming.

Ta.  It seems quite well mannered.  Was reliably turning in 30s flights (basketball nets permitting) on 900 turns so am, uncharacteristically, optimistic that it'll be OK up to 80%.
