    RE: Bislob biplane, poetry in motion

    About a year ago someone flew one of them at our field. My daughter happened to be with me that day and she said I had to build one and I agreed with her . I've got an old Fox 35 which, from all I've read, is suitable so maybe for the first time ever I'll be using a Fox engine . I've run it on the test stand so I know it works.

    RE: Bislob biplane, poetry in motion

    Watching that biplane lope around the circle wants me to make a biplane CL. But first I'll have to finish the 30" span (760mm) OK Models Pilot Cessna 177 Cardinal that I started recently. By the way, I'm inverting the engine plus installed a larger 1 oz. (30 cc) tank than the original 2/3rd oz. (20 cc) tank. Inverted engine is an Enya .09-III with the bellcrank moved inside the fuselage for a cleaner look.

    I just wanted to add per discussion in the Ringmaster's Brotherhood forum, the Bi-Slob in essence is a CL "3D" plane.

    Perhaps more accurately, 3D planes are nothing more than radio controlled Bi-Slobs. The Slob was hovering long before 3D became the rage. Go back further and you'll find Jim Walker doin it before the Bi-Slob. He called it the Sabre Dance.

    Thanks, 049flyer, for mentioning about Jim Walker doing the same type stunts. That I didn't know. As you may notice I put the silly grin face when I made that statement about the 3D Bi-Slob. The term 3D has come about in reference to extreme aerobatics in RC. Just watching the videos indicated such existed long before that. With the simplicity of the Bi-Slob makes one want to re-create one and try it. Sounds like fun.

    RE: Bislob biplane, poetry in motion

    My friends and I all have Bi-Slobs! They are the most fun you can have in the circle! Loops 4 ft off the ground, tail touches while hovering, touch and goes, great fun! Best engine is an OLD almost worn out Fox .35 and a 10 x 4 prop. Tune to a rich 4 cycle. Most fun to fly when tuned to where it seems like it doesn't have enough power to take off.

    WARNING! The Bi-Slob is the most addictive C/L plane ever devised. But it glides like a brick. So when the Fox .35 coughs you better go back to straight and level flight!

    Nobody can own just one!

    RE: Bislob biplane, poetry in motion

    Sounds like you all are having a riot with all those Bi-Slobs. I did a search on the net, looks like one would get plans from Brodak. One plane that looks similar, but I don't know if it would fly like the Bi-Slob is the Coon-Dog.

    The Coon Dog looks like a great flyer but you'll need massive size flaps to make it fly like a Slob. The Slob has oversized flaps and elevator for special Slob stunts.

    Set your Slob up for MAXIMUM throw on the elevator and flaps. We're talking at least 60 degrees in either direction. The Slob will be sensitive as heck at high speed so don't fly fast. The Slob is made to hover and loop. I've seen an entire tank flown without completing one lap!

    I've heard of a special Slob maneuver, but never seen it performed. Fly up like a Wingover but when you get directly overhead, apply full up or down to cause the plane to swap ends and then go back down the same way you went up.
