I would say the 14x4w may be ok, I am running a 15x4w on my 90 Surpass, that will be too much prop for your 70

brokensolo. Congratulations on your maiden!!!! Nice wind eh? I think with a 70 on 10% you are going to have to go with a 13x4W prop to utilize the power. Great airplanes.
Got my 46 # 4 completed yesterday. What a sweet plane. Here is a picture or two and my setup.

UCD46 4th
Saito 82
14x4W prop
Aileron servos Futaba S9001
Rudder servo Hitec HS5645
Elevator servos Hitec HS5625
Throttle servo Hitec HS85BB
DuBro pinned hinges all around
Ready to fly weight less fuel = 5lbs 12.5ozs
CG = 5 9/16" no weight added
Fuel = Heli 30% Cool Power
Hobbico NiMH 1650 mA 4.8 v battery

Can't wait to maiden this baby. It looks to me like my best build yet. I'm probably gonna maiden on Wednesday morning, as that's a time I can usually sneak away from work just long enough to crash another airplane. Anyways, couple more and I'll quit.
Have a great day.
Thanks,
Barry

Spud, those videos on flyingcirkus are exactly what i was looking for. I was thinking, wouldnt it be great if someone had a video that showed the sticks while they flew, and that is exactly what they have. Thanks

Here is a pic of a buddy's Fokker Tri Plane. I think he was working on it for almost two years. Looks even better in the sky.

Check out more at http://tricityflyers.no-ip.info/TriC...tyPictures.asp, Choose Fokker from the drop down list.

Hey Barry,
Thats a good looking UCD. Hey you know the bend near the tail gear, glue a small piece of tubing there,run the ant. through it, and it will pull the antenae into that nook. Its purely asthetics, but with a UCD that nice, well you know..........

Hey SCT,
Glad I could help.

SPUDs out..............

Hey Barry,
How long are those servo arms on your Hitec's, looks like you are getting a decent ammount of throw on those control surfaces!!!

Evil, I am getting a decent amount of travel. As near as I can measure I'm getting 45 degree deflection up and down. With the Dubro hinges I have zero binding. I'm pretty pleased with the way that came out. I think the horn length on the elevators is 1 1/8" and 1 1/4" on the rudder. The rudder will touch the elevator on maximum deflection.

Spud, Heck of a good idea. Thanks. I'll put the rubber tube on the tailwheel wire and loop my antana through it and won't have that ugly dangling thing.

CeeGee. Thanks for the complement. This one took me the longest and I think it's the best build I've done so far. I'm looking forward to flying it and I'm gonna be a little conservative, at least at first.

thanks,
Barry

Well, I pulled the tank, replaced all the lines.....now I get 15 minutes! The tubing was new, but must it must have had a pin hole or something in the supply line, I tried to do a "pressure test" (pinch an end and blow into it) , nothing seemed bad, but since I had it apart, I spent the $2 on fuel line. Anyone have an opinion on the best remote glow system?? I have/had a sullivan system on it and it cost me an hour of time yesterday figuring out it was not seating properly/grounding on the plug, left the cowl off and put the starter right on.... I noticed the last set of pics someone had the entire bottom cut out of the cowl, alot of you guys do this????

Saito 72 question, I have about 1.5 gallons thru it, 13x6 Master prop, 15% Wildcat syn fuel..... new to 4 strokers, the exhaust valve seems to squeek/click when it opens, I checked the clearance w/ the supplied tools, any comments/concerns/normal???? Is a 14x4 prop too much for the 72? I dont think a 13x4 is made??

Can someone explain the prop diameter = pitch = thrust = speed relationship?

Best prop for a UCD 46 w/ Saito 72?
Best prop for a GP Giles 202 w/ a Saito 100?

Do I have pictures, ha ha, I have lots of pictures. Here are a few. The homer plane is a GP Ultra Sport, The first pic here is the Ultra Sport with a GP Ultimate. These both belong to a guy at my field, Joe, aka Waldo Pepper. He's been flying and building for over 20 years. Here is a pic of those two between a CG Tiger II and an Eagle, and then last but certainly not least, my UCD on the Dandelion runway before its maiden.

Sctcrash, Nice pictures...... You know you can always post pictures. I'll have to say I am partial to the UCD. And the dandelions........ well, that just makes the picture. Kind of the icing on the cake..........[8D]

Hey Barry,
Actually I meant that area about 2" in front of the tail wheel. You know where it comes down at a 30deg. angle. That way my ant. stays close to the fuselage. So if you take your finger and push down on the ant. where its away from the fus., thats where I mean to put the tube. I used a small piece of retract tubing. Its hard to explain man I wish the wife would hurry up and buy that camera. But then again price of a cam.=price of a plane..................

SPUDs out

Homer's expression is right on for sitting in one of Joe's planes when he flies.

Ceegee, i thought the dandelions were a nice touch. The field looked great that day, got yellow flower petals sticking to the nitro all over my plane, but what can you do.

I wish i could get some flight photos, but i seem to be the only person who can keep a plane in frame when its flying.

Heres a few more:

Here are some pictures of mine, I have had some problems with setting up the engine due to overheating so the cowl has been removed, just about with it now so should be putting the cowl back on in the next couple of weeks.
Have a Slimline Joe pilot in the office, looks the part!

Nice Barry, that cant wait to maiden feeling i think is even better than the waiting for the brown truck(just barely). im not gonna ask about the 100[X(] but that plane will be great.
Spud, like your idea, im putting mine back together after a inspection of the firewall and fuse to see if the saito 100 had any ill effects after 50 flights and i must say there we none[sm=thumbup.gif]

gjeffers. The other Saito got sick. May revive it and fly in this plane a little later. But right not the 82 is very nice in this aircraft.

hey guys, I'm surprised nobody has asked about the fuel lines in post # 2502!!!! No questions.

Thanks,
Barry

You guys are just too good!!!!! Yeah, it's the fuel line with a one way check valve. I haven't seen anyone do that and I couldn't see why it wouldn't work so I'm gonna try it. Heretofore I've either had to pull the line of the carb or pull out a fuel dot. Both can be cumbersome and I tend to lose the fuel dot so I'm gonna give this a try. Any reason you can think of it won't work?
Thanks,
Barry

Evil, Nice looking plane. The pilot looks great, a little constipated, but great........ Is that an O.S 70?

Barry, I noticed the lines but was waiting for you to tell us you had discovered a new set up or something.

Sctcrash, It doesn't look good in the dandelions. Kind of a beauty and the beast look..........[8D]
