RE: Rudder on the Right Stick

I've flown mode 1 for almost 25 years. I taught myself mode 2 about 8 years ago. I can also fly the other modes. Interestingly enough, when at fly-ins I regularly switch back and forth all day...

RE: Is It time to delete the weight limit in Pattern?

Dave, it was good to meet you as well!

You're definitely right about the idea that you can fill a 2mx2m square with a lot of airplane, and bipes definitely add to the possibilities. I'm...

RE: Is It time to delete the weight limit in Pattern?

RE: 2008 US Nationals

The next version may have just that setup on it. The setup I used initially was the same setup that Chuck Hochhalter used last year to take 3rd in intermediate. I based my design on that setup and...

RE: 2008 US Nationals

Well, this week has been typical. AMA pattern competition is new to me, but competition is most certainly not. Like every contest I've participated in, I've spent this preceding week struggling to...

RE: Team OMP Presents the Boxxer ARF!

RTN, stick to the CG in the instructions and you'll be fine. Should be around 1" to 3/4" in front of the trailing edge of the top wing at the centerline. A little forward of that won't hurt it...

RE: 42" Boxxer

Honestly, I think both of your suggested motors will be less than you need for good performance.

The OS .50SX, .55AX, Webra .50 or Irvine .53 would all be good choices. For 4 stroke power, I'd...

RE: Has anyone tried doing this?

No advantage at all.. Profiles are about using drag, not reducing drag. Leave the leading and trailing edges of the tail square and bevel the hingelines only.

RE: 3/4A PROFILE !!!

Pig, the .074 is what I eventually settled on for the best power for my Edgeling. Fun little setup. My personal suggestion would be to try to keep it under 15ozs. My 14 oz Edgeling with the .074...
