    RE: C-ARF Flash Build Thread for All Flash's being built this winter


    ORIGINAL: ricardinho

    what kind of approuch did you have with the full flap..were you low or high... also where did you have you throttle at.. i like to land a jet like a airliner.. nose slightly up using the throttle as the elevator.. drag it in... i dont like just comeing around the corner on final and chopping the throttle. sounds to me you got behind the curve a little... no air over the elevators.. try a lower flap setting until you get more comforable with landings.. if you have a big runway never hurts to come in with a little more safe airspeed...
    Will reduce flap to around 40mm, introduce crow and chop throttle 1 m off the deck. I did chop the throttle 8 m off the deck as advised by my caller! Live and learn me thinks!

    RE: C-ARF Flash Build Thread for All Flash's being built this winter

    I have my flaps set at 45mm with 6 mm of crow. I also have 1-2mm of up elevator mixed in any time the gear is down. With this setting the plane seems to be pretty much in an attitude that is maybe 5 degrees above neutral and allows me to land with or without throttle. If you are hot and high you can chop the power and it will sink pretty fast but still with plenty of authority to drop the nose and obtain a proper flair when you are ready. Or you can put the nose up and throw on some throttle and drag the plane in till you are ready to chop the throttle and drop the nose. The crow seems to take care of wing rock and the plane slows down to a crawl. The plane seems to almost land itself, but I still find ways to insert my dumb thumbs into the equation from time to time.

    Oh well, if it were perfect everytime we probably would not enjoy it so much when it was right!

    Salling,

    This will be my new set up as you describe. Makes total sense. After it bit me I felt like selling it. But when it was flying I just loved it! Back on the horse with bruised ego.

    This is what I do as well, with the up in it, if the plane climes you are going to fast and slow down tell the plane is flying a constant altitude with the nose a little high. Then you are at the right speed. George

    How much rudder is everyone using. The directions call for MAX travel, just wondered what people had for that.

    20mm (3/4") is required. Even 1" is too long.

    RE: C-ARF Flash Build Thread for All Flash's being built this winter

    The Sport Reg has worked well for me..have 2 flying in jets for a couple of years now with zero problems or concerns..I'm just in the finishing stages of #1 Flash, and hope to light a fire in it tomorrow - If I can finish off the dozens of last minute details......
    All I ask is for a chance to prove that money can\'t make me happy......

    I had 300+ flights on my classic Flash with a SportReg, no problems. My Ultra Flash uses a TurboReg because I had one lying around.

    well, "tomorrow" turned into two more weeks. She moved under her own power today...just a couple of glitches to work on before the first flight.
    I shoved everything as far forward as I could and looks like the balance is going to be pretty close by time the cockpit and pilot are added...

    RE: C-ARF Flash Build Thread for All Flash's being built this winter

    It flew! it flew! IT FLEW!!!!!

    It was a bit of effort as I had moved everything forward to avoid having to add ballast weight, and it paid off.....not sure that I would do that again though..... I had wing and fuselage bags professionally made up for the two Flashes that I am working on.. They have the patterns now, so if anyone is interested, PM me and I will pass on the contact info.

    The weather was pretty crappy for a maiden flight, so the video's are pretty poor...here is a static shot....Although flyable, it is far from finished from an appearance standpoint...it is still a work in progress....

    Kudos on the maiden! I bet it flew great, as that's what the flash does.

    Don't sell yourself short on the finish/scheme I think it looks great!

    Just a quick heads up...
    For those of you using the big block turbines... Keep an eye on the inlet to turbine adapter. I had mine start to split length ways. Nothing that a bit of glass bandage couldn't take care of, and I am fully aware that its down to using too big a turbine ( Which I am probably going to be called a fool for ) but I thought I would pass the info on, as I am sure I am not the only one out there...

    RE: C-ARF Flash Build Thread for All Flash's being built this winter


    Greetings,

    Does anybody want a brand new set of wing and stabilizer for the Classic Flash? I have one in a custom color scheme (pictured). It's never been assembled and is in perfect condition. It comes with the original C-ARF wing and stabilizer covers (not pictured), also in perfect original condition.

    Please send me a PM if interested.

    Best,
