    Sounds good. I'm down here in Florida right now competing in TopGun with the Gotha. I must be out of my mind. The winds were pretty stiff today and I don't think my flight score was too good, but I completed the flight without any mishaps, so I'm happy. It's supposed to be calmer tomorrow.

    RE: Siemens-Schuckert D.III 1/3 Scale

    Yay! It Flys!! ...and real well, too! It is very solid in the air and there is no pitch-sensitivity like I thought there might be with the huge elevator. I added 1 lb. of weight on the firewall but it didn't even need that because it's a little nose-heavy.

    On the first flight one of the flying wires came loose, so the flight was cut short. I retightened all the rigging and did two more real nice flights. the only aerobatics I tried on the third flight was a loop, and it did it nicely. It slows down real well on landings.

    The only issue I had was the ailerons twitching when the engine was running at low RPMs. There are 4 servos in the wings for the ailerons and three Y- connectors to hook them all together. I suspect the ignition module is causing it, but I'm not sure.

    RE: Siemens-Schuckert D.III 1/3 Scale

    Thanks, guys!

    You were right on, Dave. It didn't really need any nose weight! I'm going to leave it the way it is until I put a pilot in and the dummy engine.

    The CG seems to be correct at 7" back from the LE of the top wing.


    On to The Ohio Dawn Patrol!![8D]

    Yes, very nice indeed. They are fun little things, aren't they? I have found a photo of yours, a line up with a D7 and a couple of other SSW's. You won't like it though...

    I found the picture you are talking about. Greven's SSW looks to have a dark-colored cowl on it and white wheels. I wonder what color that cowl is? It's in the old Profile publication. Their color plate, though shows a white cowl. I also have a picture from the Windsock datafile that shows a light-colored cowl. I can't tell if the wheels are white or not. Then, I have the Bob Pearson profile that shows lozenge-colored wheels. Three of the sources seem to agree on the white wheels, but I don't know what to think about the cowl.
