Default Carolina Speed Rally...Again!!!

Here we go again,
All you guys on the east coast who think you are fast, June 30 is your day to be there or be square!
We will be holding the 5th annual Carolina Speed Rally Saturday June 30.
This is the only known true Speed event in the US.

Keep an eye out in future Model Aviation district IV reports to get a warm fuzzy.
If you are within 500 miles of our field and you like fast planes this is the place to be!!!!

I'll give you a little hint. That's an HET 90mm fan housing on the right and fedex just delivered the wheel brakes. [

Model Aviation did a really nice job of letting our event be featured in the District IV report.
I am happy to report that we have a new sponsor this year. RTL fasteners has donated a nice prize of one of thier screw selector kits. We thank them for the support.
Dalton Sportswear is also planning something again this year. John has been very generous in the previous years and gives us some great shirts, hats, and other cool goodies.

Here is a link directly to the results page along with a nice vid that was put togeather for us.

Please post in this thread or the other forum if you are planning to come. It really helps for all of us planning the event. If you have questions please contact me. I love to talk about the Rally!

Dang Chris! That was impressive!

AR, we are using a Stalker Pro to measure time.
The pilot gets two passes from two directions, we record all four times for an average speed. However we grant bragging rights to the fastest one on the books.
The main goal of this event is to have a bunch of fun with some really impressive fast planes.

No restrictions that I've ever heard of.
If you needed to "win" this ralley badly enough you could convert a 747 to RC and do some low passes..

The only restriction is no turbines. We have a fabric runway and don't want to melt any holes in it.
Otherwise bring it on!
Heck, we even had a heli do 86 one year.
This is THE event for anyone who likes to overpower a plane and see what it will do.

Hmm, I'm thinkin' the Herbrandson 290cc nitro & glow twin from my USRA Super Corsair, spinning an
18" x 66.6" propeeler, Jethro slapped onto an Ugly Stik with tall gear ought to do the trick.

I promise to miss the fabric runway when I make my hole....

Ahhh, I really do wish I could be there, I would load up for bear like I haven't in a long loong time, for the privilege of getting my azz kicked by said lekkie guys, no matter how gamey they smell.
I would see no honorable way around it!

VicMan, I've followed the growth of your Speed Party from out here on the left coast since the beginning of your efforts, and to me, what you and your com padres have built up is the coolest thing since God invented nitro. bar none. Salute Sir!!!

Roundy as you might know those herbie engines make just over 40 HP on glow. most run a 20x33 prop at around 10,000 or so maybe more. The latest trend though are the DA and ZDZ's in the 120-160cc range. they are lighter and run pretty close to the same speeds.

I would like to go also but i cant make it. Maybe i need to see if i set up a mini speed rally at my club, or maybe sac would be better since out in middle of no where.

The F5D electrics are now running 55 seconds or less on the race course. the best glow engine time is low 57's on the F3D planes which have rear exhaust full pipe nelson's, drake or MB engines in them.

here is the video. they run gear drives with 7x23 prop at 20,000 or so.

Um.. ahh.. ahem..... airraptor, I gotta ask, did you get that my 18" x 66.6" post was tongue in cheek?
Regardless, I pretty much "got" the stuff yer sayin' back before the turn of the century when it all became true.

If I ever actually get around to molding a new wing for my F2G-1D, it will just be a poor humble 240mph sport plane. Yup, not a competitive bone in its oversized, overweight body. It takes 14 lbs of motor, shaft extension, spinner, and prop just to balance it.

Sorry, but I'm still having trouble believing what I think I read that you wrote. Did you actually explain to me that 120-160cc engines are lighter than a 289cc engine? [X(]

No matter, have fun
C.R.
