My name is Jamey and I am a speed plane addict....My life went down the tubes and I have sold
everything related to RC (except my K&B-48) but I would like a revvur number please?

I have forfeited my old # because I am a dork.

Sincerily,
Razor
James....your old Revver #5 has been re-issued to you for reasons of insanity.

So there !!!!

after a few years of mourning, self pity and the worse run of luck any man should endure, i think i am going back in the shop fix up a few things and start burning some fuel again!
a local man started a flying community before the real estate market tanked and has been begging me to fly at his airfield since he hasn't sold any lots. air strip has been clayed and packed and was actually ready to pave but he didn't get that far. i need a good swift kick in the maximus and since my best friend and flying partner passed, no one has done it!
just mulling over still, but it is a high possibility.....henry
Henry.....Revver Bro #7, glad to see you back in the fray. Good luck to you Brother.

Hey Flyboy Dave, nice to see you back!
Would you say that jamaicaman fits the profile as a speed plane addict?

That is the best covering job I have ever seen. Check out the landing gear and leading edges! Totally built for speed
Not too sure about the roll rate though?

Hello, My name is Craig (AKA Seajay) I have a speed addiction, I very recently purchased a Weston Magnum with a West Eurotec engine that I hope to be putting through its paces real soon, I also have a GP Revolver that should fly fairly fast for a 72" ws aircraft..  

I would like to Join the Revvers Brotherhood, and If I counted correctly, I will probably be #262, let me know if I am correct so that I might change my tag line!! 


Thanks, Craig.

Vicman..

Yes Sir, the pics did help, I am having a little bit of a difficult time reading the Side Ruler.. I am Guessing, based upon the length comparison of the rear ruler, that the side ruler is 6".. Is this correct, so it's 10" wide by 6" deep?? I am going to print the Pic, and enlarge it to the correct size, and use that as a template..

thanks for the help, I knew that the Fine folks here on RCU would come up with the answers I needed!! the Next issue will be how to use a tuned pipe, as this will be my first Plane with one!!! But I will ask that when I have the Plane ready for flight..

6 x 10 is correct. Be sure to read some of the threads about setting up a Magnum. The CG needs to be further back than the instructions call for, otherwise you will need another one. [X(]
