Sad news about Bill, He and I had lots of time together at TopGun. My condolences to Janelle and the rest of the family. Casey or Dan, if you read this please say to Janelle that Mitch from Mass is thinking of her. Mitch WB100

Have not had much time for building, (at one point this summer 3 days off in 7 weeks), but getting everything ready to assemble when able.That includes the OS Gemini 160 built up from 2 damaged/wrecked examoles. Had to do a bit of modding to the carb as idle would stay exceedingly rich, although stay running. Doubled the air bleed size and now reliable down to 2000-2100RPM. Can go lower if heat remains so have not decided if onboard glow will be installed. Will likely determine that once see how airframe reacts on idle.

Engine is surprisingly quiet, but exhaust may also be modded for mufflers. Waiting for an adapter to see if it makes any difference.

Thought you guys might like this snippet which was featured in our local paper. There is a space in the url before ".com" because it wouldn't let me post a link.

Yes Dan, it was great. I never flew in a open cockpit before, and since I am scared of heights in tall buildings (but not planes) I was a bit concerned. Luckily it wasn't a problem at all, even in 2 1/2 Gs and heavy banking turns. I guess in a plane it's different

Hi guys. I am contemplating a long term building project of a 1/4 scale Waco YMF5. Has anybody had any experience of the Hostetler plan. I am interested in this particular model as a local kit cutter does a laser cut short kit which should help speed things up.

Also would the Saito 60cc radial or 90cc redial be the preferred engine. The 90cc doesnt cost that much more considering its 50 larger capacity. Also the plan calls for 60-80cc.

Thanks in advance

Warren I have no experience with the Hostetler plans. Have you given any thought to the Barth kit it is in my opinion the best kit available. Have a look.

Time to mount the top wing on my Pica 1/5th scale. searching the thread didn't help and I cant figure out how to use the index on page one. one thing, my cabanes are too short. the inter wing jig doesn't fit between the wings. also was hoping for an alternative to using the electrical lugs, unless that's a good way to do it. if anyone can help me out I'd appreciate it. Thanks

fly20 the index hasn't worked in a long time not sure what happened to it. As for the inter wing jig I don't think mine fit either I just made sure the incidence was correct then built my outer wing N struts to fit what I had. Good luck let us know how it works out.

Unfortunately Bill was unable to finish his Waco. It was passed on to his grandson Casey hopefully he will keep us posted when he get to work on it.

Can someone let me know how they did the wing fillets on their 1/5 or 1/6 scale plane? I have never done these and would appreciate the help. Thanks.

Flyrc here are a few pic how I did mine. After building the filets out with balsa I used light weight filler to get curved shape. I cant find any pictures of the filler in hopefully someone else will jump in.
