I am stuck here at work and staring at the clock waiting for 3pm when I can go fly my new Nexstar. The weather is beautiful. It is sunny and 80 degrees with hardly any wind. Should be a great day to fly!

Have a good safe day of flying. Give all those clevis's one last looking over and a good control check for proper operation including which way they move. Then go have fun!

I think the bug bit you bad. I've been flying for several years now and it is still chomping down on me as we speak.

Have a safe good time today. You know, I think I will go flying also. 90 degrees with only 37% humidity. That is good for Mississippi summer weather.

WHAT???? Why am I still typing, I'm out!!!!!!!!!!!!

DTB,

90 degrees and 37% humidity is good flying weather. It is going to be over 90 here this weekend. The NexStar flew great last night! It was the maiden flight for that plane and the OS 46 AX ran great. I think is is a way better engine than my OS .46 LA.

Hey Brit. That looks great! I really like the way you cowl'ed up the nose. Looks pretty neat.. side mounted the engine.. you like that sort of thing, eh?

Now this looks like it still has quite a bit of dihedral. Did you modify that at all on this bird?

Good to hear SlowPoke40, keep it up. We told you it was a better engine. I can't remember the last day it wasn't in the 90's here with index's in or near the 100's.[:'(] Oh well, Memphis in the summer.

Fly safe.

This one was a gigantic repair job on a student's plane. There was no fuselage at all forward of the wings, & the belly was ripped out back to the original main gear location. I retained the dihedral in this case because the student still needs it.

Unfortunately I don't have pics of any of the Nexstar hot-rods, but they look somewhat similar, except for the one with the wing lowered into the cabin.

Those taildraggers are sweet! Is it possible to put skis or floats on a nexstar? I am thinking of skis for winter flying. I know it is down the road but is seems like a fun project.

Skiis are dead easy. Floats take a bit more work because the rear attachment points have to be made to fit the rounded fuselage -- but no real problem.

Hey Bruce, I will be in Memphis next weekend visiting family and my buddy is in a club there with Gator and Paul Swany (well know guys from there) and I will be at that field with my Funtana 90 and probably a foamy.

Come out if you can.

I've from Jackson, MS

Good deal slowpoke, the 46AX is a much better engine that a 46la. Almost can't compare them. I'm glad you have a nice outing.
