Great, a trip down memory lane..!!

Thats the 36v1 and not T1 right?


I see you too had manafacture a stand off clamp for the tuned pipe. You may need to attach a tye wrap around end of pipe and loop back around exhaust clamp in case the tuned slides itself back under it own power and thus de tuning the pipe via a gap in silicone joiner.

You will find the roll rate a blurrrrrrrrr.

Hope you can keep the speed on and perhaps some vid thats I was unable to get. Let it rip

Best of luck with maiden.

just noticed.

Is yours a 50 size tuned exhaust??? It looks longer than mine, designed for 36 size engine.

Unsure how that will or won't effect tuning and performance?? Perhaps others might explain the consequences of a larger pipe on a smaller engine??

pic of mine for tuned pipe length/size comparrison.

Heh heh, should be a good ride. If you chicken out on the 8x10 for the first flight use a 9-6 instead..

I just got my Demon/.50V1 back up and flying yesterday after 3 weeks hiatus. Blew the cobwebs off pretty quick.

No, but I will. I only have 8x9's right now. LHS trip coming up this week. As soon as I Dremelled out the 1/2 degree of left thrust I'd stupidly managed to build in, launches became almost a non-event. A quick tap or two of right aileron as it accelerates is all it needs now. I am more likely to be talked into trying a 10" pitch prop now. Before, no way..

It went about 200 when I threw it across the shop.. in response to sticking the plug in the female mold. My excuse is that I had not yet bought a new air brush, so skipped the PVA coat - but having applied 10 coats of carnauba I figured I was good to go. Not - it was a problem more to do with the finish coats on the plug afaik, bad paint choice. But I'm still a dumbass because PVA would have solved that. So anyhow a new plug is in the works, but with summer finally feeling like summer this month - intermittently - there has been some effect on my rate of productivity.

Product #2 is coming together. I will post a pic somewhere soon. It's not a delta, and it's not a prop plane, though I suppose it could be.. hmm.

Launching was a no issue as balance was great..... 1 click left trim and she flew straight and level at 1/3 throttle....Upped the throttle to 1/2 and zoooooom...
Now this was just a check out flight so I had to use restraint on the throttle......Dang , give her a little more throttle and she starts to serge...Although the speed is still inpressive....Throttle down a tad and she starts to sing again... Run the throttle up to 3/4.....OH MY GOD!!!! The 8x10 dug in and boooom afterburner........WOOOOOSH!!!!!!!! The control at 3/4 throttle was great......Made 1 pass and decided to test my landing approach as there was a 5 to 10 knot wind straight down the runway. Made a slow turn and went to full rates again for more control at low speed and thats when my control of the airplane stopped......She went fail safe and glided in to the high grass..... Ended up getting the 4 wheelers and doing a grid search..... Took almost 2 hours to find it....GREAT NEWS!!!! Broken prop and the rudder popped off .....NOT A SCRATCH !!!! It will be a while before I fly this baby again as my good flight partner decided to go on a cross country bike trip without me !!!! But, I will get some video of this impressive little speedster and post it at that time.... So, Guys I got to say this is the Dream package set up for this plane as it seems to handle the added power with no problems..... CG was a snap using a 6v battery as ballast..... No lead required.... Has the weight of a 36 with the power of a Hot 50...... Gofastz

great, what part of the vid is that dopler pass, mins?

I think you should try the 8x8 prop without any cutting of mainifold. Currently I've just completed 200 magnum flights and today was playing with props.

I was using 20% synthetic fuel, no shim on the 50 v1
9x7, great, easy launch, vertical launch,good speed
9x8 easy launch, good speed but the prop loads up in vertical and rpm drop
8x10, horid launch but when away no props, no sag in vertical,good speed, but engine not screaming and prop not fully unloading.
8x8, great launch, great vertical, no rpm drop, great speed,great scream.

Hope you can try this and report back
