    I'll say. Very nice color scheme too. I might have to steal parts of it.

    The Bushwacker taught me to make wooden wheel pants, and I STILL prefer them. They're much easier than fiberglass (or...

    Actually, I built the plywood muffler on my first one. It lasted fine, until I switched to the Max .40. A little restrictive, because of the tiny muffler volume, but it worked fine, and made for a...

    One of my early versions (from an actual kit) had Prettner style airbrake/flaps covering the entire trailing edge (not including the aileron area), and a Max .25 (non-schnuerle). I could make...

    Grrr! LAST last question: Just to clarify for my mind, the "curve mix" is available on all programmable mixes? (Sorry, incipient Altzheimer's...)

    Wow! Talk about a quick response! And right from the proverbial "horses mouth" too! Thanks Andy. I'll be ordering my DX9 as soon as I get the month's bills paid, and make sure I have the funds (I...

    Just a post script to the preceeding post...The old JR 622 had it too. Also, it's not useful on anything but aileron, and maybe rudder. In fact, it could be dangerous on elevator, heh.

    This thread seems to be closest to what I'm looking for on a quick google...I'm thinking of getting a DX9, and wondering if there is a "point mix" available on the program mixes (like a multi-point...

    Yep, I found the file(s). There are actually 28 files, LOL. I formatted them so that each file is one side of a double (foldable) page. In other words, If you print file 1A, then turn the page...

    Oh, an addendum. I mentioned that I had a Bushwhacker with spoilers. I forgot that I also had one with Prettner-style airbrake/flaps. These are also used on some full size and model gliders as...

    I'm neither pro or con on foam cores. If they seem to be a reasonable copy of the airfoils and taper from the original Bushwhacker, go for it.

    I built a slope soaring model by Bill Evans (of...

  14. RE: Typhoon 2000 (TEMPEST) modifications thread

    Mike,

    Just some trivia you might get a kick out of. You sound like you've been around pattern for a while, so you'll get most of this, I'm sure.

    You gave credit to Ron Chidgey for the...
  15. RE: Club is out of control... what to do?

    Philly,
