RE: Carl Goldberg PITTS S12 MONSTER

I measured the length of the Aeroworks cowl and it is 9.5" and the width is at least 9". You would have a slight air gap at the rear of the cowl which would be fine for airflow and you could just...

RE: Carl Goldberg PITTS S12 MONSTER

You will like it with a gasser. I have about 30 flights on my Goldberg with a 29cc Goped converted by Jack Canaday. It won't pull up out of a hover very well but it does all the classic biplane...

RE: Carl Goldberg PITTS S12 MONSTER

Been flying my Monster quite a bit lately. Landed the other day with the high rates on elev. and stalled it about a foot off the runway. Throttled up a bit and almost caught it. Lucky I was on a...

RE: Carl Goldberg PITTS S12 MONSTER

Mine is flying beautifully with the 29cc Canaday engine. No 3-D plane at all, but flat spins and snaps all day long. I need to go with a smaller tank. The 16 oz. I put in will run about 20 minutes...

RE: Carl Goldberg PITTS S12 MONSTER

I had all of the smoke system installed except for the tank and removed it for the maiden flight. Thought I might need a little help in the wing load dept. Turns out that on my second flight...

RE: Carl Goldberg PITTS S12 MONSTER

Well, I finally put the maiden flight on my Pitts Monster. It was about 5:00 p.m. with about a 20-30 gust wind right down my back yard runway which was freshly cut. I had spent a little time...

RE: Carl Goldberg -- PITTS S12 MONSTER

That is unfortunate. I may need to address the gear area before I fly also. I hate tearing the bottom of the plane up when the gear drag across it after pulling out. I will be flying off of grass...

RE: Carl Goldberg -- PITTS S12 MONSTER

I am at 11.6 now and will weigh the rest of the components to see what I will do. I wish the Aeroworks Python was fat and round like this bird. It flattens out almost immediately after the cowl. ...

RE: Carl Goldberg -- PITTS S12 MONSTER

I guess the balance worked out o.k. with the st 90. Under 10 lbs is nice. I know there is no way to get more power without adding weight. One cancels the other at some point. I see a lot of 1.20...

RE: Carl Goldberg -- PITTS S12 MONSTER

Ross 3951, which Stearman Radial did you say that came from? I like it. Your 4 stroke pushrods fall right in to place. I weighed my plane last night. I have the ign. batt and smoke bat. to...

RE: Carl Goldberg -- PITTS S12 MONSTER

Back at work on the Pitts again. Just installed the battery tray just aft of the aft wing former. Two TBM LiOns are mounted to it. So far it is just slightly tail heavy and I still need to install...

RE: Carl Goldberg -- PITTS S12 MONSTER

My Kyosho Pitts doesn't have the same throw on top and bottom ailerons but I just fly anyway. It is like the Goldberg ULtimate in that it used a 1/2A control horn with all holes cut off except the...

RE: Carl Goldberg -- PITTS S12 MONSTER

I am definitely not offended. I have run many biplanes with two servos and slave rods. I flew a 1/3 scale Fly Baby Bipe with two 1/4 scale servos on the lower wing and streamlined slave rods up to...

I am using two match boxes. $100.00 for the pair, but the easiest way for me to get all four aluminum SWB arms 90 degrees to the servo by being able to adjust center points separately. Left two...

RE: Carl Goldberg -- PITTS S12 MONSTER

Seems to me that I read somewhere that Great Planes bought Lanier/Goldberg and will be relocating them from Oakwood Ga. to Champaign Il. Then I imagine that Tower would carry parts for the Monster!...

RE: Carl Goldberg -- PITTS S12 MONSTER

I went ahead and started cutting. Looks like I won't need any covering or anything. I opened up a hole below the elevator exit so a one inch arm would be slightly higher than the elevator slot. ...

The weight of the engine, mount, ignition, and muffler (Brilleli) is 42oz. I haven't a clue as to what the plane weighs as of yet. Should know in a couple weeks.
