    RE: Hostetler 33% Decathlon

    I’m having trouble with F16 and F17 as other have had. Does anyone have a good picture of where F16 and F17 join F15? Thanks,
    Pat

    RE: Hostetler 33% Decathlon

    Guys

    First of all, wish you all have really good Season Holidays. Remember, Jesus is the reason for this season.

    Second, I am starting another bunch of 30% scale Decathlons as well as finishing the development of the 35% scale version to fit the increasingly popular 100-120cc twin cylinder engines. First prototype to be built till March latest. I am checking the possibilities of accepting PayPal payments and the cost of shipping the kits abroad. I think to DHL or FEDEX assembled aiframes (30% or 35%, ARC/ARF) on 1x1 basis will make the cost skyrocket. ItΒ΄s different when you buy china-made ARFs that come in quantities via container.

    ThatΒ΄s it for now. Enjoy the season.

    Marcus

    RE: Hostetler 33% Decathlon

    Marcus,
    I have been throwing around the idea of scaping the WH SD and going with one of your planes. With the scale changes I am almost doing my own design. But if you are thinking about a 35% peice, now we are in the ball park. You are talking about a ARC or ARF, But I would be in for a kit, building is a big part of why I am in this hobby, your thoughts on the kit subject.
    Did you get the CD yet?

    RE: Hostetler 33% Decathlon

    Sorry if I didnΒ΄t make myself clear, thatΒ΄s exactly what I was thinking about, selling only kits for foreign customers. Shipping assembled planes will be prohibitive costwise.
    LetΒ΄s talk about it. PM me on my address.

    No,I didnΒ΄t receive the CD yet...

    RE: Hostetler 33% Decathlon

    I have been trying to post photos but there is some bug preventing it. I donΒ΄t know what to do...neither with the multi-file uploader nor the normal uploader...
    trying again now...but there appear a message like this:
    "get error while validating the file: Unable to find file DCxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx in C:\Wndows\Temp\Uploader Temp at function ?x2c" when attempting to upload thru the multifle uploader and " 500 internal server error" when attempting to upload thru the normal uploader...

    Any thoughts?

    RE: Hostetler 33% Decathlon

    Marcus, the story has it that RCH has been sold and is in the process of being migrated to another server and platform.
    For the last several weeks, it has been nothing but trouble with pictures disappearing (appear as broken links), unable to access the site, dreadful slowness to name a few
    Until a few weeks ago, I was a paying subscriber, now I'm waiting to see if the site comes good before I give them any $$$ (I have been a member here since 2003)
    Sadly, it looks like it's time to look for another forum

    RE: Hostetler 33% Decathlon

    Hi Ari
    well this is a new situation for me, I always had a deep respect for this forum the way it was. LetΒ΄s hope they fix it quickly so we can go further with this thread.

    Meanwhile, what do you think of the idea of my 35% scale SD?

    Hi Marcus,

    I think it's an excellent idea!
    I would be quite interested in one of those kits at some stage.

    RE: Hostetler 33% Decathlon

    Greg and Ari, all the others not mentioned by name

    I suppose we shall keep this thread close to itΒ΄s roots, that is, the building of 30-33% scale Decathlons (sorry, it has evolved to a much broader sense than just dicussing WH design and build specifics) and not make it a commercial tool.

    Therefore, for commercial specifics please either visit my HP at marcusmodelfactory dot com and get in touch via email to discuss details.

    I will only use this forum to describe my designs, thatΒ΄s all. Or better yet, as soon as Ken gets his 30% scale kit by February and starts a new building thread on it, migrate to that one. I sure hope the new kids on the block here get back on track again and professionaly solve (AND QUICKLY, OF COURSE!!!) the picture uploading matters. This has been way too good over the years to just let go by now. IΒ΄ve been a member for 7 years now and I consider this one my major option on internet fora to discuss modeling matters.

    Well, last but not least, I wish you all a really healthy and wealthy New Year. See you guys in 2011. God bless us all!

    I also want to wish all of you a Happy New Year. In 2011 I will be starting a new build thread showcasing Marcus' 30% Super Decathlon kit. I invite all of you to drop in to share the fun. This will be my 3rd SD and it will be a real pleasure to build one that I don't have to do major modifications to so that it will be true scale.

    I also plan to do more flying this year, after the wedding in February followed by a trip to Tahiti.

    Interesting that it took that long...

    Yep, I know. I am still working on it. Have yet to do the molds, but I am busy finishing a batch of 4 30% SDs.
    Will advise soon.

    Addendum to last post, I meant to ask what the measurement is of the windshield brace on the full scale airplane? It appears to be, maybe 1" square or so. Any ideas let me know. Joe

    Joe
    the center brace starts as a tube in a U-shaped bracket at the top cross brace, then makes a curve downwards, as soon as it straightens out it "enters" a square/rectangular shaped profile, which has a lot of rivets on each side. On some pictures is seems to have a soft wrapping around it, like leather or similar. Maybe itΒ΄s just an illusion to be soft.
    I am enclosing one picture that says it all.

    Thanks so much Marcus, that picture is a much better view than the one I have. Any idea what the square measures on the full size, I would like to make it close to the right size. thanks Joe
    PS. sorry to keep bugging you, I understand your busy with many projects, but your the "SD man"

    I ran out of info this time
    Guess the best is to ask one of the SD owners to measure it and possibly taking detailed photographs.

    I would guess the tube being 3/4 inch so at 1/3 scale it would be 1/4, therefore the rectangular section would have to be somewhat close to 1/4 x 5/16 or so...as a starting number.
    On my 30% prototype I used about 3/16 x 1/4 or so...

    Important: it doesnΒ΄t touch the windshield.
    Also: Citabrias and Scouts donΒ΄t have it.

    Hope this helps.

    Marcus
    P.S. thanks for the nice compliments.

    RE: Hostetler 33% Decathlon

    If I had my other computer I could probably give you a photo of what you need from Greg Koontz's full size decathlon. Our RC club is actually located on the base leg of his full scale runway in Ashville Alabama. I get to see him fly his decathlon as well as his piper cub doing aerobatics quite a bit. During his airshows he lets people get an up close look at his planes, while their parked on the ground, to take all the pictures you want.
