    RE: Sig Rascal 110

    I have a Rascal 110 that's 4yrs old. One of the wing strut bolts has striped out.
    Has anyone tried to retap the blind nut in the wing for a larger bolt or is there
    some better way to fix it. I would like to keep from cutting into the wing if I don't have to.

    RE: Sig Rascal 110

    I had the same thing happen and just tapped the blind nut in the wing to 6-32. You shouldn't need to pre-drill as there is not much metal anyway. Mine is still holding fine.

    RE: Sig Rascal 110

    Thanks for reply, I have a large amount of deflection so I will start at 10% I was going to set 30% so I think the 10% is a better starting point........Jim

    RE: Sig Rascal 110

    Yeah, just go up to safe altitude and landing speed and give it a shot.

    Mine will ballon up if I get back on power. It would be handy to have flaps go up if you advance he throttle, so you didn't have to reach for the flap switch when aborting a landing approach.

    You should be able to make that happen with a program mix. Slave the flaps to throttle and put it on a switch as a flight condition.

    Yeah, I think I'll do that. I also need to set a throttle curve, once the weather gets a bit better.

    RE: Sig Rascal 110

    I get out to the Vernon Field a lot in winter mostly by Myself but there are three or four others that come out with the winter sun and one of us has a Plow Truck and keeps the road open, 170 membersin the Vernon club and only a handful will venture out in the cool winter air.Grindrod still has five that are out every Sunday and snow storms permitting three of them get some flights in.
    I have been busy here with renovations and it's only ten minuets to the Vernon field from home so a couple of flights are easy to fit in now and than. Guess I'm just old school and still love flying off the snow in a clear blue winter sky.
    With the holiday season over I am going to start going to Grindrod on Sundays starting this Sunday. Funtana 50x on Floats and the 110 Rascal on skis will fit in the truck.

    A lot of guys dont even know how much better the lift is or the pull of your prop in the cold air...Cold air is much denser and so works better...It is a bit harder to get glow fuel moving though...A couple clicks richer on the needle helps...Running a gasser or an electric is the way to go maybe...

    RE: Sig Rascal 110

    Good old experience has a lot to do with running a glo engine in the cold. Sometimes I will leave the airplanes in the truck overnight if My flight batteries are up but will bring the fuel jug indoors. I use JR 2700mah 6V flight packs in all My airplanes and it takes more than a days flying to drop them down to recharge levelso generally over night in the truck is ok.That also insures the ski'sor floats remain as cold as outside eliminating anysnow sticking to them. Keeping the fuel warm is thebig issue, bring it out fuel the airplane and put it back into the cab of thetruck or the warm club house. Once you learnhow to setup your engine for cold weather running thatdense cool airallows you to richen the mixture and cram in so much more fuel and air thatperformance of the engine andthe extra lift and prop bite can change a marginal climber into a monster.

    As long as I am allowed to run glo or gas electric power is just something the weird guy over there is doing. Setting up, fiddling with and successfullytuning an internal combustion engine to the peek of its ability is one of the best parts of the hobbyin My opinion. 30% nitro Helli fuel and a good F plug in My four strokers sure makes them run well in the cold air. I cant imagine flying one of My airplanes and doing a fast and low hearing a screamingelectric WEEEEEEEEEE !!!!

    I'm not sure, but I think the lipoly batteries the electrics run don't like cold temps. Have heard of guys putting hand warmers in to keep them warm.

    RE: Sig Rascal 110

    I am not up on electrics either but I did notice that when I first started out with my I Con it didnt have enough power to plow through the snow and take off so I taxied around down the field and back..by the time I got back the battery must have warmed up because it had more power and it lifted off easily...Sombody suggested keeping the batteries in your pocket untill you are ready to fly...I however am with Brian...I like Glow or gas better..Electrics have their place...I like my ICon for early mornings when everybody is asleep and the water is calm...

    I thinking you could configure the landing gear so it stands vertically on its tail and do VTOL.

    RE: Sig Rascal 110

    Knowing how the wing is joined and attached to the Fuselage with two 10 mm wooden dowels a short 32mm x 5mm Aluminum dihedral and alignment bar in place of a half span wing tube and the four 3mm strut fastening cap screws I think you would never appreciate thepower of theDA50 without separating the wing from the Fuselage.

    I have a Syssa 30cc on my Rascal 110 and any more power would cause self destruction if used(in my opinion).........Jim

    I have the Syssa on mine, but wouldn't mind just a touch more power.

    A Dle55 would be way too much, but if I were to do another one I'd be looking at the dle35 or Saito 36.

    I'm using the recomended 18/6 Xoar wood prop with reg. gas at 40-1 syn mix turning 8900 on the ground and it easly goes straight up as long as it can bee seen. Also pulls out of hover with ease...... When new it barely turned 7000 but just kept coming on. Jim
