RC has been on the back burner since Irma for me too. The last time I flew R/C was at Marcel's a week before Irma. Between work, the holidays and other stuff, time has slipped by.

They're one of the last old school hobby shops around! I've been going there for 30 years.

Nice job Fred! Good to see you've still got it!...

Nice job Fred! Good to see you've still got it! To this day, I still use Enviro-Tex after you taught Jerry C. and I about it, ca. 1990.

Nice Yenko clone too!

RE: Palmer Plans Parts?

I'm not sure if they are still around (a quick google search yielded a dead link), but I got a set of cowls for a Palmer Dash 7 from Fibretech and More last fall.

RE: Larger Revolver

Well, after 8 months of beating on this airplane, I finally pranged it...... As I was pulling (pushing) out of a LOW (10' or so) inverted pass, my ultra reliable ST G90 dead sticked for the first...

RE: Larger Revolver

+1..... I have always been a "if a little is good, more is better" kind of guy when it comes to pretty much anything, especially RC airplanes. To me, a .40 size airplane really means it needs a .60....

RE: Bringing the Short to STOL - Short TakeOff and Landing

The DHC-7 is pretty impressive too! When I first started flying it, one of the old hands stopped on ON the numbers at KPVD. It was empty, but that impressed the daylights out of me. DeHavilland...

RE: edelbrook 600 bog

If you're not getting a pump shot with minimal deflection, your pump is probably dried out or cracked. Also, if it's an older one, it might not be impervious to the ethanol in the fuel, causing it...

RE: Larger Revolver

X1000

Get the airspeed down, and she won't bounce. A lower pitch prop will also work wonders in this dept.

Iron on covering. Even after 30 years of messing with the stuff, plastic film hasn't gotten any less frustrating! Give me solid wood structure and glass any day of the week.

Steve,

I know this is an old thread, but I've had great service from Sahak (SG Model Engines/Rossi Engines USA) Link above.

RE: Larger Revolver

Agreed on all counts. Better is very subjective! The R-70 is a great all around fun flying airplane, pretty well built, low "hassle factor and is a great value. It's definitely not the "best"...

RE: Phoenix 6 - Start # 2

Great stuff Vince! I am awaiting a P-8 fuse from Don in CA. I'll be "borrowing" some of your ideas for mine, since I haven't built a pattern ship in over 25 years.

RE: Larger Revolver

Departure stalls (which is what's happening to mine when inverted. high AOA with low airspeed) can result in an unintentional snap roll/spin with no rudder or aileron input. It happens a lot with...

RE: Larger Revolver

Mine gets snappy while inverted when the airspeed is low. I attribute it to the semi symmetrical airfoil, and washout. I can horse it around a lot more while inverted when the airspeed is up.

I wasn't "calling" anybody out.

I've got over 10k hours (and counting) in Boeing airplanes. I said that I find it hard to believe that not one, not 2, but 3 guys didn't notice a veritable...
