I used a Klingberg wing type of yaw dampening system on early Zagi's, both slope and powered. Worked well. Klingberg yaw dampening is very simple. Small, very undersized, hinged tip verticals. I...

I agree! People are afraid to learn to fly slow. Yes, it gets mushy and insecure feeling…… Fly the plane!

I guess what I was trying to say in my previous post is….with the use of files, polish wheels and shims, I am sure you can make that .09 run just as we made the .049's run. Again calling all old...

We raced a 1/2A pylon class that anything could go as long as the wing was 200 sq. inch. Cox was the early engine as we moved to AME's, VA's and such. Many ran a bladder tank, especially Cox. Use...

Auction is the only way to go……I had about 18 motors that I had listed on a club website. Only one sold. Adding up what I was asking totaled $450. I put them on Ebay and got over $1200. Some of...

Iron, I wished I had the time to design and build. I barely had time to "install" the components in mine, much less fly. I have a design that I nearly perfected in the 90's that I want to do...

Off the shelf extreme speed just costs money now, as opposed to a few years ago. To go fast in the past, glow was the only option and a custom airframe. I was deep into the fast stuff beginning in...

RE: 200mph electric delta brainstorming

A 200 mph F5D should stay under $1000 unless you go for one of the high end airframes. And about 1KW will do it. The current crop of F5D can not hold enough battery to hit 230-260. If you tried,...

RE: Picco 45 DF

Yes, I had to cut cooling holes in my fairing work or otherwise cook under the faired area. I blew silicone often. I did cut down that prop to at or just under 7 inches. Some one posted a while...

Here is a pic of an average run on that day. Did get a 213 on one run. Was not too sure about that one. Wished I had a pic of the plane,I think those pics ended up at an ex's house. It was a foam...

RE: Picco 45 DF

15 years in an attic in southeast Texas, you would look well used also. I can assure you it has not even had a glow plug screwed in. Minor aluminum oxidation causing minimum outer discoloration. ...

RE: Strongest 46 engine

Just did some quick calculations and a 11x4 APC turned at 16,200 Rpm is making almost 12 lbs of thrust static. That would power a 24 lb airplane quite well with a climb at over 30 degrees. That is a...

RE: Strongest 46 engine

Jett is the best choice, hands down. The other fact in favor of Jett is the fact you can contact Dub Jett personally and he can advise and build/tune to specific needs. ...

RE: Maximum altitude??

"Hemmorage of airspeed" = induced drag. There is no difference between hard turns and slow flight only airspeed. High AOA that is required to fly a delta (tailless) slowly requires lots of power....
