fl-copters

Have you flown it? Or have you just not completed it yet. Do Wendells plans call for FG fuse.. I thought all Wendells stuff was Balsa/Ply built up... ya know "we do it the Old Fashioned way"...

IF you have flown the Lancair, curious about performance, engine you used, weight of the completed model. I have always loved the looks of that plane since it was first published in the full scale mags.

Tnx... for the info...

Oh btw- how does the "Collective" work on that Lancair?

best regards,

Nope haven't flown it, bought it off Ebay about a year or so ago. It was an aftermarket fuse for the giant scale racers based of Hostetlers plans.
From those that I talked with about it, they were running 200cc motor, with speed well over 200 up to 250.
Theres also foam wings available for it, and I'm sure by now a full composite is out there. Retracts were pricey in the 6 to 700 range as I recall.

I did play with it abit though, and fit a 3W 212 4 cylinder under the cowl. I've got the info somewhere on the prop they are using, something like a 24x22 APC.

I'll get around to it one of these days, I've got a couple of turbine to build first though.

Thanks FL- I have about ten planes hanging over at the house. But I'm constantly trying to get more toys. Notice under the Stainless table, I have two kits and one Arf to build. Also have a couple of kits on top of one of the rolling shelf systems to build. This does not count 12 to 15 sets of plans I have in the house to build. If I did'nt have to work for a living I might actually get some of them built. However I work so I can buy more kits... when my wife is not looking. ha ha

Speaking of toys, how do you like that Craftsman bandsaw? Looks like the 10".

Weasel Keeper,
You're very observant, Indeed it is a ten inch Craftsman and it has been a great addition to my shop. I got it with a Christmas bonus from work last year. It has a tilt table on it along with an adjustable fence. It in conjunction with the scroll saw gives me a lot of ability especially when I'm building from plans. I think I paid about $150 for it. It came with a 1/2 inch blade but I just bought a 1/4 inch blade which should help me with a lot of the tighter radius cuts that we modelers run into.

Bill,

Well I've been eyeballing it in the store for some time now. It looks like a very nice machine for the price. I have to fly under the expenditure radar so as not to attract to much attention from the BOSS. Thanks for the info.

Weasel,

You won't be sorry. It is a very good machine for the price.



Learned,

I like the cabinets. Also, That building table should support a large wing. From the pics it looks like you have some pretty nice birds there.

That 30% makes me drool. Hope it works well for you. I have numerous planes, "all glow", I plan to build my first gasser this winter. You may have seen the kit under the stainless table in my prev post. It's a 89inch Dyna flight Super Decath.
