T.Bob,

Get a life

260man is not the one building the airplane and that has been made very clear.

If all you want to do is complain then this is not the place!

This tread has turned into a total train wreck. First the guy says he going to build a 28 lbs Carden 40% (why with a 100? I don't get it?). Then he says he's relying on the covering to keep the plane together. Then we find out he’s a liar and not who he says and he's not even building the plane himself. Why do we care what 260man says now, he lied once he’ll probably lie about the finished weight.

The only positive thing about this thread is T28pilot. C. G. ing your planes while they’re still in the box is one of the funniest things I have seen on this site in a long time.
Thanks T28pilot.

Oh by the way my name isn’t T.Bob and I’m not from Indiana, I'm from France.

Kudos to you and your friend 260 man. This a really intersting build after the nansayers are edited out. I've built several Cardens and they all turned out heavier than I had hoped. My first was a 35% edge, which finished at 30#, however it was glassed and painted. I hope this 260 build is sucessful for your friend so I can follow his lead. Please don't leave anything out.

Ralph,

Thanks and I will keep all the information flowing as he accomplishes each task. There will be a first flight video to follow also.

Bob, it was great seeing you at the lake last weekend and hearing about this awesome project. Just like your 35% laser that flew so well and so long on a DA 50, I know this will work out great for your extreme 3D style of flying that we all enjoy watching you do.

It is really great of you to share your build with us. Lesser men would have gone away and not continued to share, with all the empty-headed, opinionated criticism you and George took from the psuedo-aeronautical engineers. We really appreciate a true engineer sharing his trade with us, and hope you keep up the great information flow, in spite of all the nay-sayers. They have obviously never seen any of your previous work or seen any of your excellent flying.

I look forward to seeing you at the flying field, flying your new build through many successful and entertaining flights.

Your friend,
Mike Boyd

You really do resemble your signature T-Bob. At least you are also man enough to admit by signing all your emails that way.

Arm chair pilots like you are the reason many of us don't usually bother posting on RCU anymore.

The old addage, empty barrels make the loudest noise usually applies on these threads.

Ya know, in all the years I’ve been on this sight you have never had anything constructive to say in your posts. I suppose somewhere in that feeble little brain of yours; you think you’re being clever with your smartass comments but the truth is maybe you should in your own words“STOP BEING STUCK ON STUPID". If you don't have anything constructive to say then how about just saying nothing at all. I'm sure that would be a novel thing for you.

Its not entertaining, its idiotic banter that brings nothing to this world. i appreciate many of the ideas good and bad that are made available through RCU forums. this gives others who dont know to learn and those who do know to share.

Bob, thanks for sharing your love of the hobby and your unique angles on building and tremendous building skills.

Tbob, that for taking and wasting part of my life as i have to mull through your crap to enjoy my hobby, so..

Please, keep your insignificant comments to yourself and let us enoy our hobby without your sarcastic ass chiming in your 2 cents when no one asked for it.

Entertaining my ass, its just annoying.

So far, the natural general principle that will subsume this case is a notational variant of a corpus of utterance tokens upon
which conformity has been defined by the paired utterance test. Similarly, the theory of syntactic features developed earlier
raises serious doubts about possible bidirectional relationship approaches. Conversely, a large proportion of interface
coordination communication mandates staff-meeting-level attention to any discrete configuration modality. Although this approach
has a certain attractiveness, the product assurance architecture effects a significant implementation of the requirement that
branching is not tolerated within the dominance scope of a complex symbol. On that analysis, a subset of English sentences
interesting on quite independent grounds delimits the ultimate standard that determines the accuracy of any proposed grammar.
Further, this selectionally introduced contextual feature adds overriding performance constraints to Krapp's Last Tape.
Specifically, the interrelation of system and/or subsystem technologies does not affect the structure of the anticipated
epistemological repercussions. For one thing, the fundamental error of regarding functional notions as categorial does not
affect the structure of the postulated use of dialog management technology. Similarly, the incorporation of agonistic cultural
constraints is not quite equivalent to the total configurational rationale.



Is there anyway to get a moderator to just erase this whole thread???
