    RE: Speed Freaks Wanted- Over 200 Members already !

    uh yeah that whole push it to 200 thing with the shark never happened, i would imagine it was going at least 130 though, never could get spare cash to buy a real demon of an engine. so it never went as fast as i thought i wanted it. its alright though..

    im now working on a speed plane of my own design and scratch building it. it may fly or not and it may go fast or not, hell it may not even get off the ground or so.. atleast it will give me something to do for a couple months. will post pictures of the steps and progress. here or start a new thread which one? advice?

    Yeah, the 2 bills claim was pretty unsubstantiated. Still a pretty *****en plane though.

    RE: Speed Freaks Wanted- Over 200 Members already !

    i know right. i figured pushing it to 200 would be so easy, but after screwing with the shark trying to get over 140 with the low powered engines i have that only want to turn 15- 16,000 and 1.2 or so horsepower just cant get it to go any faster with those little engines. we'll see what the speed plane im building will do... if anything at all.

    Keep your eye open for a Sport Jet .50 or any of the Q500 Jett and Nelsons here and on the bay. There are some pretty good deals to be had out there in the $150 range if you are patient enough. You will be happy with the SJ 50 for sure, thats what I have in mine.

    RE: Speed Freaks Wanted- Over 200 Members already !

    Hello all.

    My name is matt, and I am addicted to speed. I have been flying rc for 5 years now, but just finished my first speed plane this summer. I have a shrike 10 that i made electric. It has an AR6200, 2 HS425BBs, turnigy plush 60amp ESC, turnigy 35-48 100kv motor, and a 5s1p 1800mah turnigy pack. I have tached the APC 8x8 prop at 19000 rpm, and i used doppler as i dont have a speed gun capable of registering something this small at my disposal. I recorded 135mph, and now I am absolutely hooked. anyone else here doing high speed with electric?

    This thing started out from plans of an electric pylon racer. Needless to say it has taken some mods to make it work - 20% increase in size of plans - longer nose moment - 50 in wing span - larger rudder, etc. The airfoil is the same, and it takes carbon fiber rods for spars and 2 oz cloth half way out the trailing edge tapered to the leading edge to get it strong enough.
    The wing is tapered a little 6 1/2 in at the root and 5 1/4 in at the tip. The leading edge is straight.
    The motor is an OS 35AX with a Nelson muffler, and it is FAST. I have never gotten a radar gun reading on it, so MPH would be a guess. I am pretty sure it is over 150.
    The OS is rich in the midrange and it is a bit of a challenge to get it into the air without torque rolling the plane. Once it is in the air it flies good wide open.
    Here are some pics of the latest one. I've lost track, but I think this number 7.
    I have made improvements on each one, and this one seems to work the best. Mounted the motor with head lower and a Tettra bladder tank which seemed to help a bit. The tip cord is 1/2 inch more than the yellow one, and it seemed to help with take off.

    I don't have any plans as of yet - just a pile of templates. []
    I will have to get in touch with Steve Hergett - who gave me the plans originally - and see if he is willing to make up a set. He is one of those computer geniuses, and I am sure he can do it if he has time.

    Easystern,
    I am IMPRESSED!! You have quite a collection of toys.
    Believe it or not I worked for Chevrolet when that Camaro was new. I set up the new ones as they came off the truck.
    You have done a beautiful job on the Camaro . I had a 68 with an aluminum rod 302 in it many years ago, and looking at yours sure brings back memories.
    I was never fortunate enough to meet Eddie Hill and Ercie, but I followed their yellow dragster for years. One of the good guys.
    Thanks

    Thank's... Earl

    maybe my SS was in your hands ,originally it was 327 with 4 speed muncie .have to take a look at the build sheet in what plant it was build.
    your nova is real hardcore racer and also a max stroked small block,i like that.
    at the time when i had build the SS (took me 3 years) ,635ci was at this time the maxed stroke BB available ,now they go to 700 +
    scott shaffirof did build the engine in NY and dynoed it.

    i am a big fan from Edie Hill and Don Garlits , i met don at his museum in ocala Fl and at moroso sportspark couple of times personally ,very friendly guy and down to earth.

    Sorry.... Guys I know it is an RC Board

    Drag Racing is a little slow right now for me, because of a 3 year old boy and some bad economy as in every country and sunoco 110 octane is 10 $ a gallon

    that's why i did make some new plans for 2010 to be not an to old fart with 48......
    you do have also a nice sundowner with a verry nice engine !! , FUNNY !! ... i just will start my first reno racing pylon season here in germany for 2010 http://www.reno-racing.de/ with two 50 size sundowners and a 50 webra and 50 weston uk engine.first race is in april and 4 in total this year. all has to be stock on 10x7 apc ,only a special muffler is alowed . Dragracing in the Air

    Wow, Denny great shot, Gorgeous plane, A jug?

    The wide angle shot made the gut look smaller, your dads done alot of portrait photos before so knows how to frame you

    Here's a bit of Benny to keep you amused.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=810TQyT2KXI


    How you getting on with that screemin deamon of yours.. Mikes delaying making the kit again which is a shame because it looks awesome. You done a fantastic job on that covering. Have you broken 200mph?

    I just ordered the mini Tigershark yesterday and a new weston (webra race tuned) 36v1 engine as I wrote the other one off in the outlaw.
    The mini is also flat section but have been advised to stick 1/2 inch sheet on top and bottom to make some kind of laminar section as this engine could be to hot for it causing the plane to wallow at high speed flight.




    Guys,

    my field uses a paved runway and obviously i cann't land the plane without undercariage.

    Is there any way on fitting some wheels or something ?

    Kostas,
    Just make a undercarriage like the Germans used durin WWII with the 163 Comet. Theres dropped off after takeoff, but instead make it stay on the model. It would really slow the model down though, and make it quite a a bit heavier. I attached a video showing a carriage on a German 163 Comet. You just will have to be really creative.
