Big Guff - color & decoration

Does anybody have or know where I can find photos of the original Big Guff (Good Bros.)? I'm especially interested in the lightning bolt pattern on the wings.

RE: question on 1/4 scale Sopwith Pup

Google Sopwith Pup. There are several good sites with excellent photographs. To answer your question, round, but the support wires seem to be rods and not cables.

RE: Gentle lady or Sophisticatied lady?

Use the standard servos. Both were designed to use them. You'll only have to use more nose weight to balance it if you use smaller servos.
I've had my GL in the air for 4 hours plus on a 600Mah...

RE: Floater; which kind?

I slope both a Spirit 100 and a BOT. Both are stock kit built and fly just fine. One modification I would suggest is that you put spoilers on the BOT. My Spirit has both flaps and ailerons...

RE: Some in FAA will probably use this....

My advice to everybody is to READ THE FBI AFFADAVIT!!. It clearly shows that this guy had no idea about model aircraft or what he was getting into. Yes, he bought a plane, but that's about it. From...

RE: Newbie at Slopes

RE: Hoarding !!

Fellow hobbyists,
The word "Hoarding" denotes the accumulation of items for the sake of having them and making no other use of them. Therefore, someone who "collects" kits simply to have them and...

RE: Removing plane from a tree?

It's not plane magnets, it's a little-known phenomenon called an "Arboreal Vortex" which actually sucks the airplane into the trees. It also works for kites.

RE: Thinking about thinning out my collection

Pilot, Royal and Pica kits demand some big bucks on fleabay. Watch their prices for a few weeks before you decide to sell.

RE: Old Carden Kits: Build them or Store them?

If I collected guitars and never played them, most people would consider that a waste. Same with kits. Build them, fly them. Make templates and keep the plans so you can repair them if needed. Save...

RE: MAN Why do you like it?

I let my subscription lapse in 2008. The magazine deteriorated to the point of uselessness. It used to be a magazine with good articles on building and flying, with good technical information and...

RE: covering how too's

If you want a great looking fabric, use SOLARTEX (from Balsa USA). It's an iron-on, it's already fuel proof, it goes on easily, shrinks up nicely and it LOOKS GREAT! No glue, no balsarite, no dope or...

RE: Are you a member of a club?

My club is also mostly nitro. Lots of IMAC stuff. It's not a very welcoming place for sailplanes. A few guys have flown electric gliders there, but that's about it. For glider flying I'm off at the...

RE: recomending a 1st time slope plane

what type of a slope do you fly on? What are the average windspeeds? What type of landing areas do you have? All these answers are needed before anything can be recommended.

move Toledo swap shop?

fellow modelers,

As anybody who's been there knows, the Toledo show has outgrown the Seagate Center a LONG time ago. The crowds can be almost overwhelming for visitor and exhibitor alike.
