Spoilers Fans,

I am searching for assistance on finishing my framed up Spoiler. Several years ago I purchased a set of Spoiler plans from the Manufacturers fun fly rep at a
local event. After framing up the Spoiler, my plans were misplaced during a move of my residence. Contacted East Rc to purchase another set of plans or get specific info on AC Balance point, low and high rate throw settings of all control surfaces, engine thrust angles, hard point locations for control horns etc.
East Rc promised assistance, but no response yet. If there are Spoiler owners willing to assist me with needed info, I would certainly appreciate anyone willing to provide help.

sl5406, start the C 0f G at around 6 " back from leading edge of the wing. the spoiler can be flown from 5.5 to 7.5 back. on mine and most spoiler flyers i know set the throws for about all you can get on high rates. most don't ever fly on low rates so just a shot in the dark but set low rated about 1/3 of high rates to start and adjust as needed to fit your flying style.

I lost my JBB today do to a midair with a trainer. I was hovering and the guy flew right through the tail of my plane.The trainer had damage to the left wing but landed , can be fixed. [>:] The JBB is a total loss I just loved the plane to bad we cant get them anymore.[&o]

If anyone is interested in buying a spoiler, mine is for sale. It is the one pictured on the 1st page of this thread, white with red checkered and Colson Aircraft the on the wing. With a thunder tigre 120 this plane weighted less that 10lb. Never crashed with not very many flights (mostly flying gassers lately). Airframe only 350.oo

Hi:

I'm new to this forum and I apologize to break the chain of friendly conversation. Two questions: 1) What is the status of the Spoiler ARF? Based on what I've gathered, the "import ship" has sunk and Engineering has started to draft the plans for a new ship. AKA: delivery is dependent on the completion of said ship. 2) If interested finding Spoiler plans, where would one go to purchase/download? Once again, information seems difficult to obtain. Other than "call Jerry", I have not found additional contact information......phone#, email, address, etc. Sorry for the sarcasim and any/all info is greatly appreciated.

i don't know of any plans for sale unless you just stumble into some one willing to sell their personal set. from what i understand jerry sold the rights to the plans to east rc and can not sell copies even if he wanted to. if you can get in contact with him he might be able to help.
i'm not sure when the spoilers will be ready but i do hope it is soon.

spoilerman a couple of post back said he was selling his built spoiler. i have seen him fly it several times and it looks to be a very nice plane so maybe that would be a way for you to get one soon.

Frank, I kept telling Doug that we needed to try out a couple of them, but he didn't won't to cook any last night.

All I have to do now is mount rec battery in my JBB and it is ready to go again. Thanks to Frank and Bill I was able to make another OS 120 ax out of parts from 2.

Hey Jim,

No doubt the "hybrid" 120 will be the best of all of them.

Are you SURE you guys didn't have steak last night on the club?

You can trust Jim with steaks... That is, if Doug doesn't want to cook them.
