RE: EAA museum, Oshkosh, some pictures

Another aircraft I liked especially was the Bugatti racer.

Story goes, Bugatti (yes the race car guy) built this plane in the basement of a furniture factory in France. It was covered up, and...

EAA museum, Oshkosh, some pictures

I wasn't sure where to post this. But settled on this..

Why? Because if somebody wanted to scale some interesting planes, I've got a couple nominees.

I went to the EAA museum in Oshkosh...

Hello,

I'm looking for a set of plans for a Douglas DC-4. 1:14 scale. I ran across a reference that CMSmith Plans had some. Even got to their web-page catalog...

I tried contacting...

RE: Twinstar Geometry

Make sure the bend is far enough away from the end, so when the servo arm is at the far end of it's forward travel, the push-rod still clears the servo body.

RE: Slow Poke 40, need landing gear measurements

Thanks for sending the LG...

I'm going electric on the slow-poke. I'm to the point where I'm ready for initial balancing.. hence the gear.

RE: *** The Toledo Show 2013 ***

Any new biplanes?????

Something about 36 - 40" span, where a 40 would be about the biggest motor you'd want to put in it....

RE: Rebuild old trainer

Heat should do the trick..

Find a starting point, pick at it to get something to hold onto (pliers if it's too close to heat).

I'd prefer an iron over a heat gun for this.

Slow Poke 40, need landing gear measurements

Hello,

I'm finishing up construction of a Slow Poke 40 kit.

I bought an unfinished kit a few years back and I'm getting back to working on it.

Anyway... I either lost the landing...

RE: Minnflyer (AKA Mike Buzzeo) has unexpectedly passed away

Like most here, I met Mike on-line. I had the fortune of talking to him in person a handful of times.

He even flew/crashed two of my planes. (I'm sure Mike is laughing at that.)

I truly...

RE: Twin Cities Auction (Minnesota)

I wouldn't agree to restrict the number of items. No matter if you make the cut-off 5:30, or 2:30, people are going to start leaving early.

I had a couple items wait for the late 10 or 20 as...

RE: Twin Cities Auction (Minnesota)

I left around 6:30, I think. There were 7 or 8 airplanes left.

Each year is different. Fewer Piper Cubs, fewer unfinished kits, fewer big engines, fewer engines over-all, fewer tired and worn...

RE: mounting a large brushless need mount help

Worst case scenario...

You can make stand-offs from scrap plywood. Just cut into squares, maybe 1/2" (or 3/4") square, and drill holes in them. You gotta have some scrap ply lying around.. yes?...

RE: Sig Hog Bipe Build

When I was at a fly in last year, I had my Hog Bipe. I think mine was the only bi-plane at the field. Sure, it wasn't a scale D-VII.. But a biplane none the less.

RE: Sig Hog Bipe Build

I've used small pieces of painters tape to mark where I wanted to place coating. It's easier to position than coating, you can move it, and one done, it pulls off.

An addendum, to the instructions and drawings wouldn't be a big deal for the "expert builders" who choose to add ailerons to the upper wing.

RE: Phaeton 90 Build Thread

In general principle, I would agree with you. But there's also the saying "If it works, don't fix it."

I've used hatches and magnets like Seamus has. It's wonderfully simple, and works very well.

The only trouble I had was the magnets would sometime pull out.

So, if I might suggest, use the...
