Default SuDoKhoi 60 Repair

I'm bringing my 40 size SuDoKhoi, Taco, Menace Plus, and the 60 size SuDoKhoi if I can get her dialed in today and tomorrow...

Also I've got a Taco ARC for Ulf and another Taco ARC prototype of a new design using a 1/4" fiberglass shaft.....

yep, the Taco ARC is the most important plane you have to bring.
Thought you where going to bring the Chorplast plane too ?

Gator, why do you keep ripping the gear of the flip ? I havn't had that problem with my Flip. Could it be due to the grass field ?

Default Aeron to Houston?

Paul - I thought that you were taking the Aeron to Houston? I didn't see it on the list! I'm going to have to talk with Jeff, and tell him - not to pick you up without that Aeron ready to fly at Houston! <LOL> (Got to harass you!)

Sorry Kevin..... My Aeron isn't done.... Too many projects.... It's the one I really wanna work on.... That Esctacy too.... But the 60 size SuDoKhoi was closer to being done....

What plug and what fuel are you running in your ST 90? I was having some trouble getting that thing to idle very well.....

Hey Paul,
I've run lots of Tigers, and they usualy like a really hot plug. An Idle bar sometimes helps too. I've had good luck with the Fox Gold R/C Long. It's pretty cheap, but works for me.

On the control line planes we sometimes would run a 4 cycle plug.

I would not check valve the pressure line to the tank unless you are using a regulating pump. Pressure can build up and flood it out at just the wrong time. I have tried this on the 91FX and a 160FX. Both were plagued with flameouts as the throttle came back. The pressure builds pretty high at power, then as you throttle back through the point where the needles mix together, it will bog down big time.

Good luck with it, if I can melt some snow, mine is ready too.

How do you think an OS #8 plug would do?

Paul - I'm not talking to you! You swaid that the Aeron was going to make it to Houston! Now - I'm going to have to go to Houston with my Aeron and show you guys how a profile should really fly! <LOL> (YEAH - RIGHT!)

I am running the Enya #3 plug in my ST90. The hotter plug makes the tranistion smooth onto the pipe for me, and helps me so that I can tune the header so that the ST90 comes on the pipe at a real low RPM (around idle <GRIN>). The OS #8 is about equivelant to the Enya #3 in heat range (I think). I am not much for OS stuff. I don't like paying for a name. I've got a guy that buys the Enyas in bulk and sells them to me at his cost.
When you guys leaving for Houston?

Duuuuude... no one is more sorry than me for not getting my Aeron done... I've got a new engine for it... new servo's... I chompin' at the bit to get that thing in the air... I'm sorry massa... just don't get the whip out!! LOL!!!

I'm gonna try that plug today... getting ready to take off and go fly that bugger... I called your guy about that ST 90 pipe setup... he said he was going to order one for me and call me when he got it in... I never heard from him... Maybe you can give him a friendly nudge next time you see him.

I wish I could work out something like this with my local hobby shop.... The guys out hear don't really listen to what you want... and sometime they price things to the moon!!

Gator, Jeff, Scott and myself are leaving for Houston Friday morning at 4:00 am.....

All right - all right - I won't get the whip out this time! But that is it!!!! No more slack given to you!!! <LOL>
I must say Paul- You're always good for a good laugh when I need it, and thank-you for that!
You know once you fly that Aeron, you'll never go back to that Sudoukoi <GRIN>

David is pretty good on following up on this orders. I had some problems getting some parts I order from MAC Products just before Christmas, I just got a couple of weeks ago. If he doesn't have it in stock, it can be awhile. He needs some stiff competition.

Default Flight Report

I AM IN LOVE!!! ALL THE PAIN IS WORTH IT!!!! THIS THING TOTALLY ROCKS!!!!

Man... what a gratifying experience!!! I put 4 tanks thru it this afternoon... That OS #8 plug took care of all the transition problems.. That ST 90 ran like a BIG DOG!!!

I don't remember having this much fun on a maiden flight..... First flight, I was really nervous.... Musta been the 4 months it took to repair this bird.... But after the first flight, I started having fun.... Does really awesome flat spins, inverted and upright... It will knife edge all day long... Hovers great... and did I say harrier?? It harriers better that anything else I have!!!

Thanks to my Buddy Gator for hookin' me up with this bird!!! And thanks to my buddy Double D for the 6 volt battery... Man do those servo's respond better with the 6 volt battery....

I finally got a weight on my Su-Do. Get this... 7.75 pounds dry! YIPPIEEE!!! That is counting the one ounce of lead I put in the tail to balance. The lead may come back out after the first day of flying.

I think the YS91FZ should have no problem moving a sub 8 pound bird around. I'm going to have a 15x6 and a 16x6 for testing right away. I hope to have the 16x6 at about 9,600 rpm. If I can't get that, I'll swap to the 15x6 and shoot for 9,800. I think either is within reach. Otherwise, the Webra 120 is getting a shot!

Now I'm really getting fired up! Common sun! Let's find that grass!

Bummer guys.... But I'm not too bummed.... I've got a wing kit ordered... And I have a new system I'm going to use for the aileron linkage...

I guess it happens... Near as I can tell... The aileron linkage popped off on the right side... I threw her in a flat spin and she wouldn't recover... the right wing was to the outside and had no aileron.. and that's the only one that would ahve been effective in a left spin...... so I'm happy I didn't get more damage.

Paul,

I hate when that happens. I liked that airplane. It really flew sweet. I'd really like to get some serious stick time in on it.

You could always send it to me for the repairs!

I'd keep it safe and sound for you!

That sux rocks man. Maybe Morris could hire you as a Su-Do expert soon. Not too many folks tackle that bird twice.

I gotta convince myself that my YS is good to go, then I'll give mine a try. I have no idea how long to run it on the ground before I trust it to fly.

Gotta go now... I've got to have a peek at my aileron linkages.
