Thanks George. 

I will contact Dave Mitchell and post his interpretation.

The Volare Products plan and kit for the King Harry are both very well done.

My instincts tell me that my King Harry will out-fly my FA Moth with a GG prop.

I have not had an opportunity to trim my King Harry yet.

Good news.  The local CD just sent me an email changing his mind.  He now says that the King Harry is legal for the FAC 2 Bit + 1 event provided it has landing gear and can ROG.  Check and check.

I have not heard back from Dave Mitchell.

Got a nice, quick response from Dave Mitchell.

He says that the King Harry is legal for the FAC 2 Bit + 1 event.

Here is a quote from his response:

"There is no mention whatsoever of a requirement for a cabin in either event, and as you can see 2-Bit +1's rules are based on OT Rubber Fuselage."

I have my King Harry finished and just need to dope the prop. Then I plan to make the mug shot and send it here. Might just take the picture anyway first and then dope the prop. Oh yes I need to also spray krylon on the rest of him too.   My daughter did draw the crowns for me so Thank you Kimberly.

This should really fly with it's dependable DT.
 George at Volare just keeps producing these wonderful short kits.

I got my first rubber powered ff plane almost finished today. Started exactly one week ago. Great fun building. Had to do the fuselage two times as the front end bends are quite steep and my first balsa wasn't properly picked. Second time was a better success with the help of some steam and proper balsa.

I did kind of a hybrid covering with mylar first on the undersides of the flying surfaces and over allmost all the fuselage. Then covered with esaki tissue and finished with tissue trim and 4 rounds of 50/50 dope/thinner.

Came out at 24,4g airframe and 8,5g nose/prop assembly. Volare short kit from George and King Harry superior prop with gizmo geezer nose button. Have to still fiddle with the freewheel clutch as I didn't quite get it the first time it seems..

And have to figure out what rubber to use. Never built one before so a compete novice in that respect. But really looking forward to get to the field with this one!


regards
Ollie

Hi Olli-Matti !    Your King Harry looks great!    Shocked    I'm looking forward to your first rubber powered ff plane flights.  Smiley  What kind of flying field do you have to fly in ?  How big?

Great effort Olli. It will be a rocket with that large prop. You have got a DT on it I hope.

I actually didn’t get to the field at all but with the first moderate wind moment in a what seems a really long time, I got the first test flights done at the nearby green area.

I did the first föight with 7,5g motor of old 1/16 wakefield rubber. 4-braid if I understood correct. It seemed promising though it ended up with a collosion with a traffic sign so I loaded her up with a 13,5g motor and winded 500 turns into 8-braid motor.

Burst was so powerful that little King Harry looped and did some acrobatics but by the time I got the camera out it did settle down into a decent power climb. Almost landed straight in to the trunk of my car for an almost one minute flight. Good stuff and a lot of fun  Grin

That was a very successful flying session. Great to see it all working so well.

Not bad Ollie.

Where is your model balanced? you may be able to get a better climb on the power burst by reducing the wing incidence(0.8 mm steps) and then moving the CG back to get the glide back.

good luck

Thank you John from OZ, I were just about to ask how to trim this one next. I am fairly new to rubber power so really have no clue. Need to source also some rubber next. And hopefully get to the field with more experienced rubber guys, thats where a lot of learning happens.

The weather has been quite crappy recently and no chances of getting out so no rush but I did also notice that it seems to be quite hard to source the rubber here in Finland. Perhaps Michael Woodhouse is the best bet but it will take some time to arrive.

Olli,
Why not talk to some of the F1B flyers from Finland?
They can probably supply you with rubber.
