    RE: CLIPPER ROUTE SURVEY SHIP

    Dude, You are going to love flying that.* With the reliable Gas/Ignition Zenoah powerplant you took all the apprehension out of whether you will be going swimming.
    Just kick back and enjoy its groovy flying style.* Check out the rolls and especially the inverted flying.
    Then well before you are ready to end the flight, try some Touch-N-Goes and play with the flat bottom hull and slide around the water like an airboat.
    Just be sure, before you decide to do a "Go-around" that you are ready with some up elevator.* Because sudden engine at low speed will push the nose down.* Nothing to be afraid of but a noticeable characteristic that you get with pylon-mounted engines.
    I love mine with the ST3000 even though it is a glow engine.

    Logic will not be tolerated!

    RE: CLIPPER ROUTE SURVEY SHIP

    I have flown the 40 size and had fun with it. Last's years project didn't like anything except up or down touching water, I thing 1 touch and go by mistake. Bit the big one so this new one will be interesting.

    RE: CLIPPER ROUTE SURVEY SHIP

    The only one I ever saw fly had a strong adverse yaw.  It would be prudent to mix in a healthy shot of rudder to the ailerons.

    RE: CLIPPER ROUTE SURVEY SHIP

    I read that too somewhere where it wiggles while flying.. My airlerons are cut into the wing vs. strip. Always could put mix on a switch and find out how it flys. Balanced the airplane today. Didn't bother checking weight, it's a pig like everyone elses. i have a 40 stick that could use an upgraded powerplant for serious fun on water.
