RE: Carolina Speed Rally...Again!!!

Is that another Seeker? I really like that adjustable fuselage building jig you're using there! That's something I've gone without, but have wanted for a long time. Did you make it yourself or buy it...

RE: Carolina Speed Rally...Again!!!

It was another fun event, the only thing that could have been better would have been a little less heat, and a few more planes and pilots. I hated to see Vic's subterranean flying adventures end so...

RE: Old Julian Airport 2011 Spring Results

Thanks to Mike and Jim, and all the helpers and cooks for making this a great event! I had a great time and am looking forward to the next one!

Seeing as there are no pictures at all posted yet,...

RE: Hodges Hobby's Race Results for 424 7/17/10

Thanks for the kind words! I'm getting there. My fast time was a good 1.5 seconds faster than my previous best, so that's progress. Equipment-wise, the airplane and engine were very competitive and...

RE: The third CAROLINA SPEED RALLY IS ON!!

Thanks for the kind words! For an inexpensive compact digital camera, my four year old Canon A620 still does fairly well at video. Then again, I think it is the SOUND of that Q40, at full song, that...

I seem to remember Dave Brown selling this years ago, but it is not listed at dbproducts.com, may have been discontinued, or I may be wrong DB supplied it. If you don't want to use clear tape, you...

RE: Summer Pylon Series at Lowe's Motor Speedway

Hey Bob,

any chance you could upload the videos I shot with your camera onto rcuvideos.com, to share them with us? I'd like to see how they came out, even if the flaky auto-stabilization played...

RE: Berg Microstamp Receiver Info

I had a pair of Bergs a while back, one in my 1/2A Shrike, one in my Graupner Mini-Viper. They worked "99% of the time", but I had some glitches pretty much every flight, even at close (< 100 ft)...

RE: Sig Kougar

Back in the day, very late 1980's, I had a Kougar with an OS .50 FSR and Mac's full-length quiet-pipe set-up. Can't remember which Master Airscrew (gasp) prop I had on there (10x7?, 10x8?), but I...

RE: Summer Pylon Series at Lowe's Motor Speedway

I also had the question whether the user can "legally" modify the cowl cheeks on an older Sky Raider Mach II (straight parallel sides) to be like the newer Sky Raiders that have the cowl cheeks...

RE: (Something Fast?) Delta Build Thread

Wow, you did well to get it down in one piece! The fins look a bit tall and narrow on the earlier pics. It might help make them stiffer and less flutter prone, if you make the new ones wider at the...

RE: Electrics- The Wingman II for Club Wingman

I also got an opportunity to fly Don's Wingman II, after the Club 40 and Quickie 25 racing was over. The Wingman II flies a lot like its big brother, the Sky Raider Mach II, which I've been flying in...

RE: 2nd Annual Carolina Speed Rally

The archeologists may need to DIG very DEEP to find those particular engines. Vic's Predator went in, minus the drag-inducing wings, the Nelson may have pulled the fuselage completely into the ground...

RE: 2nd Annual Carolina Speed Rally

The most likely candidate for the SD is an MVVS .40 SHO Q500 motor; not legal for 424, not strong enough for 428, but a darn nice motor nonetheless, easily more powerful than any of my side-exhaust...

RE: 2nd Annual Carolina Speed Rally

No worries on breaking 100 mph with the Screamin' Demon, I've got plenty of .40-.50 engines and suitable exhaust systems in the stable, just waiting for a suitable airframe.

RE: 2nd Annual Carolina Speed Rally

I flew my 1/2A Shrike, which hadn't been flown in over a year, and had put a new 2.4Ghz receiver in it. The trims were WAY off, and the old gummed-up Norvel .061 was not running too well; it ended up...

RE: 2nd Annual Carolina Speed Rally

My F3D-30 didn't get done either, it'll just be the Jett .50 / Terminator (Q500) combo, and the Norvel .061 / 1/2A Shrike combo for me. CU guys tomorrow morning!
