I just finished the fuselage. I really like this Peck kit-- it looks just like a micro version of a .40-size trainer. (The instructions say that the Mini Bell is a 1/3 scale version of a Senior Falcon.) I'm not such an experienced flyer, so I hope it'll behave like a trainer in the end. I hate it when you lose in the race to trim a model before it gets destroyed during the first flights. We'll see.

PIONEERING "1/8A" B-36 UNDER CONSTRUCTION!!

In a previous post on another thread I promised to report on "1/8A" MICRO R/C projects that are underway. Don D'Innocenzo is working on a "1/8A" pioneering project to build the WORLD'S FIRST FULLY THROTTLEABLE "1/8A" B-36 bomber. Don also said he will have four (4!) fully functional 50Z Jet-X engines on board. Don said, "...with all four engines burning, I will have an additional 1-3/4 pounds of thrust (on average) on the runway as I take off". His B-36 will be outfitted with Don's handmade pusher props. Don's "1/8A" B-36 is a unique R/C model that has what it takes to put on a spectacular show on the runway, during liftoff, and in the air!

Don's earlier built free flight "1/8A" B-36 can be seen on my web site (micro-flite.com). We will be posting more pictures that Don has recently sent us of the construction of the "1/8A" R/C version of his 72nd scale B-36! It would be great to have a video clip of this amazing "1/8A" MICRO R/C model on its maiden flight!

Yes, I know that nightmare scenario! I felt that kind of anxiety, when I made my first flight with one of my R/C models that has a 12' wingspan. Crashing it would have put a dent in my net worth!

The extraordinary thing about "1/8A" R/C is that even a BALSA multi-channel "1/8A" R/C model is virtually indestructible, even if you nose dive straight in, as long as you don't hit something that is really really hard. Test fly your MINI-BELL in a park over grass and you will have no problem . It will just bounce! Rubber band the wing on your model, so that it will get knocked off in a crash, preventing any serious damage.

This great new age of "1/8A" R/C will keep a lot of beginning R/C modelers from dropping out of the R/C hobby, because they still will have an R/C model to fly after their initial first R/C flights. Thanks to the late, great Leroy M. Cox for providing us with one of the true mechanical wonders of our modern world -- the phenomenal COX TEE DEE .010 ENGINE!

Onward and UPward!![sm=sunsmiley.gif]

I was going to keep my mouth shut but this is without a doubt the straw that broke the camels back. I can not believe MF thinks he has the RIGHT to post here. He needs to realize it's a privilege to me a member of this forum. YES a member of this forum asked him to respond he about his product. After all the BS and hype was said he still answered no ones questions and then he gets all pi$$ed off when he got pressed for info. The whole !QUOT!I promised someone else the first report!QUOT! crap just doesn't fly with me. I still say he didn't report himself because he didn't know. A company selling an item should at the very least be able to provide to us the info we all were asking ....by US I me the members of this forum being his target market group! Every post is about MF. In my eyes he started this thread just to open the door to run his mouth some more. He received one reply( that didn't even ask anything more from MF) and then starts running again pushing MF. When his posts got edited then HE starts CRYING foul again. He needs to read his own posts. If you don't like it theres the door please go away. As no one asked anything about his product before he started in again. In other posts he said Rog was going to have a short life on RCU. I found that very offensive! Rog has offered much to this forum. MF has only brought alot of bad feelings here. I hope I have not offended any of the regular members of this board over the past posts regarding MF, if so please PM. While MF claims that he is getting PM's from people saying how the !QUOT!wolfpack!QUOT! are making *****s of themselves I will now call him a lier because my box is full of people saying just the opposite. It is a shame it has come to this but I ask the moderators of this board how do we ban MF?

Tim, thanks for the kind words, I know you got called on a post technicality about advertising...and I get the same kind of PM's..and it does look as if MF is "asking for it"
but I truly believe (maybe I'm getting older) that if we just dont answer,, this thread will drop to the bottom of the page like a rock.....Serceflyer did me a big favor not too long ago and I dont want to bring him into a negative mix, and certainly I dont want you or anyone else getting in trouble with the board or moderators...after all ,,it IS a privilege as you said..

the guy who wants to start a club in Garner? he was on the beginner forum, I told him to take the thread to other forums to find more people..I didnt think about it being against the rules,,well he did it, and the thread got locked and it was my fault[] and I was just trying to help..another technicality gone wrong but it is the rules[&o]...your the best at anodizing, we've all seen lots of examples..let it go with that knowledge...Rog

Rog,

I know I should just let it go but he wants to sit here and say everyone is picking on him and he is so fast at quoting the rules not taking the time to see he broke them himself! It just isn't right.

Later,
Tim

Let's keep the discussion to the Mini-Bell or I'll be forced to lock this down. I know it's become popular to blast Micro-flite but it's time to let it rest. Posts have been deleted in line with this. Silence will be taken as acceptance thankyouverymuch.
