right now there is no spoiler arf and jerry is not selling the plans( at least thats what jerry is telling everone that live around here). rumer is that some one is going to arf the spoiler but i don't know for sure when or if. i hope they do and soon , it is a fun to fly plane and is a step up from the big boy and we know how good the big boy is.

Hey guys, working nights this week, gets hard to get in here on the puter. Got the wing set for the Yak yesterday, got the servoes ordered for the JBB, now gotta go get a motor for it. I've got a nice OS 91 and a brand new mousse (bud lite) can for pipe. Whatcha think? Should I use that or go for a little more power?

Glad you made it on home Monday Keith, at least the trouble with the water pump was right there in town and not 100 miles down the road. And we do have a bunch of good guys here. If they can, they will...

By the way, I counted 63 pilots at Kennett on Sunday with well over 100 planes. GREAT turn out. More of you guys need to try to make it next year.

Gotta get to bed, got one more night shift tonight.

Doug

Have you got the JBB out of the box yet? Here's the plan put the 91 on the JBB , she gave you the go ahead to buy a motor so get a os 160 and save it for a spoiler later.
you need to work hard and get the JBB and combat done before you come up in oct.

Put the yak on the back burner. Who drank the bud lite can ? we can tune the pipe and can when you come up if you want.

You're right, momma gave go ahead for new motor. I think I'm going to go ahead and get an OS 120 Surpass 4-stroke for the JBB. I found one in Memphis I'm going to go pick up in about an hour.
I got all the other stuff finally, wing for YAK, servos for JBB, etc. Now just the Surpass.
I've never owned an OS Surpass before, anyone got any stories, good or bad? Anything I need to look for when setting it up?

I don't think a os120 four banger is going to be enough. keep the 91 2-stoke and mousse can around. don't get me wrong it will fly it well, just not what you want it to do.

All you can do is try it.

Well, picked up the Surpass, nice looking motor. Spent WAY more than I wanted after getting all the little extras. Keith, I'll be up there the weekend of the 13th. I'll have the Surpass mounted but I'll bring the .91 and the mousse can. I plan on tuning it on the bench and it should be ready to mount anytime. Might switch it out and give both a try. Bad thing is, if I leave the Surpass or switch to the .91, I've still got a motor looking for a home. That's a terrible situation to be in, isn't it? Wonder if the .91 would be too much for the combat plane...

Randy, have you started on the repairs yet? You gonna do it yourself or farm it out?

Well, gotta go eat dinner and get ready for a long week of work.

Hey doug what servo's did you end up going withon the JBB?

And by the way 91 on the combat ,just right you just have to use the throttle stick. keep us posted on you progress.

doug said he will be up the weekend of the 13th of oct. so that means you need to make some plans to come up, you can stay at hotel barnes for free.

it sounds like a sweet deal keith but after being off for the paducah fly-in the 6th and 7th i won't be able to take off a saturday for awhile. you could drive back down and stay at the randy racer hilton for the paducah fly-in.

Hey guys,

Myself, randy racer, & spoiler-man (along with Tim G. who is Spoilerless at the moment due to randy racers great saleman ability) got together this afternoon for a little "huckin" with their Spoilers and my JBB. We had rain off and on all day, but managed to squeeze in a few flights between rain showers and lots of Lie Tellin under the canopy.

The pics aren't very good, but the one of randy flying the orange and white Spoiler down low should put to rest all the puns about him being a "mile high hucker"! I think I got the award for that in most of these pics. Look real close at spoler-man's center wing section.....it's a vinyl of Elmer Fudd with his shot gun being a Wabbit Hunter. I.E. Wild Hare planes Wabbit Hunter.

We did have a great time between rain showers, it is always good to do some huckin with great friends. I believe that the lie tellin was mainly done by hobby shop wantabe guy. HA HA Thanks again guys for coming up and making it a good day.

it was a great day when the rain wasn't falling, even when it was raining we had a great time slinging the BS under the tent.

the pics didn't tell the real story, nogyro had that big boy hooked up all day but didn't get a good pic to prove it. haha!

keith , it's all camera tricks and lighting.

propnut, we went to benton and hung out with bubba colson and gang. you need to let me know when you have time to fly and i can tell you where we are going. next week end i have to work but the one after that come over and burn some fuel with us. also any of you guys that can try to make it to paducah ky oct 6th and 7th for our 1st ever fly-in. it would be cool if we had a bunch of big boys and spoilers there.

i'm with you keith, it would be great if we could fly together all of the time. we have a great group of guys around here and some good flyers too but there is always room for more. flying with other people that can push you to try harder and fly better keeps me a little sharper and also causes me to buy new airplanes. haha!

Sorry I missed Sunday guys[&o]. I had my planes and radio ready but with all the rain in the area didn't think anyone would be at the field. Should have known Randy is ready to fly any time he can get his snow shoes, hip boots, or john boat to the field .

They aren't making the JBB arf anymore. You might find one left over in a hobby shop somewhere, and as of now, I don't think there are any plans to run another batch. Rumor has it that there is a Spoiler ARF in the works........
