    RE: Versapulse Transmitter Build Log

    How would it work to tune the antenna by simply shorting out turns? That way you don't have to remove them and you can unshort them when you go past the optimum point.

    RE: Vintage Center Loaded Antennas

    The ones I know of off hand are Controlaire, Orbit, Minx and Airtrol.

    EDIT:

    Ignore what I said, I didn't see the word RECEIVER. I assumed he mean't transmitter.

    Controlaire/World Engines had a nice center loaded antenna for 27 MHz. They will be more plentiful than any other manufacturer.

    RE: Early RC?

    Start a Vintage meet in CA. There is one up in Oregon IIRC. CA is a long state with a lot of people. You could have at least three fly ins in its length.

    RE: Unidentified Yellow Bipe!

    It looks like a Lazy Ace. However, 62" is the smallest Lazy ACE. This could be one that has been reduced. See this site:

    The VK Challenger is a smaller version of the Navajo. Maybe there is no reason for the name other than V.K. liked it.
