    Warbirds over Iowa has come and gone. It was cloudy, hot, humid, damp, sticky and I had the BEST time ever. The folks that ran the event did a great job. Food was grilled for lunch, and the flying...

    It looks really good in the air, you have to get yours up and get some photos.:D Thanks to the man behind the camera. I think it was Noel Hunt.

    The 24 x 10 prop flew the plane at a scale speed at 1/3 throttle. With the 28 x 6 it was almost (but not quite) 1/2 throttle for the same speed. The 6 pitch prop took a bit longer to get up to...

    21722022172203I went to a new warbirds gathering in Wisconsin on Saturday, as it looked like the Lake Mills gathering was due to be rained out. The new Xoar prop was a great success. Four flights...

    So after a bad cross wind landing, the prop was broke, landing gear twisted, gear blocks torn out and bottom wing broke. The repairs are done and it gave me a chance to see what a bigger prop would...

    Now here is a pilot that I get to say "I Knew her when." It was great seeing you both.

    Boy, ya know, I saw 20 or 30 people with cameras there taking lots of pictures. But so far, I can't find where they are posting them. Any clues?

    best advice I can give on the camo streaks is test, test, test, test, test, test, test, and then try it on the airframe. Good luck.

    So if you were thinking about getting a DRI, but were worried about how hard it is to taxi/fly/land, Fear NOT! This thing is a sweetheart. Yes, I made a point of taking off and landing into the...

    Thanks for the great answer. Gee...a 28 x 6 would look really nice on the DRI. I never thought about that large of a prop. I think I will give it a try after the Windy City Warbirds gathering in...

    Art, nice flight. What would be the benefits of the 26 x 8 ? If the 24 x 10 is more than enough prop how would a longer/less pitch prop help? I ask that question not to sound mean, but to learn. ...

    The sun was sort of out today. The wind was a cross wind, but not too strong. So we all walked down to the end of the runway to be able to take off and land into the wind. Here is the result. ...

    Well if the rain would quit I could get it in the air. At 28.5 lbs it should fly. It came out as close to the full size as I can make it. It's really hard to get the camo to match from just one...

    Well the weekend was a wash here with the wind and rain. So more time to paint! The body is all done. I am still trying to get the nerve up to tackle the wings.

    The build goes on and on. I wish the paint color showed up better in the pictures. It changed a bit toward the brown side. But in the sun its a brownish/green. Next project is the rib stitches.

    SO I said to myself, How hard can it be to paint a few stripes on the DRI? All I have to do is like the full size painters did. Load up a brush and paint it onto the area until it stops painting. ...

    4.5 inches. A good place to start. Thanks. And if your 1/3 scale DVII is anything like my 1/4 scale DVII, you are going to have a blast!
