[lektrik_flyers] Re: flying Sunday 10-29

Hi Guys,

I ended up flying at LAFFS.  I got some good flights late, as the wind dropped 
at that time (both Saturday and Sunday).  

I flew Ross's new Sammy 3D and got it trimmed.  It is ready for Ross and I 
think he will like it.  It was very stable and has the 
ability for alot of Ross type moves.  The Welgard motor turned out well too 
($21.95).  I will need to set it up for more power by 
changing to a high discharge battery when Ross is ready for a power boost.  
Knowing him that will not be long.

I flew a new plane I have been working on for a while.  It is a Seagull Edge 
540 with an OS 91 two stroke.  As always with first 
flights, I was nervious (part of the fun).  I managed to get it trimmed out and 
a good landing.  The plane was very stable and 
would slow down for a not too hot landing.  I was impressed for its first 
flight.  

I have repaired Ross's Eagle, two servos locked up on it.  I am building a 
Slinger with a brushless motor now.  My Wild Cat is 
repaired as well so it is ready to go. So Ross and I will be ready for our next 
Saturday or Sunday afternoon at Wooster 
International.  Lets watch the weather and see when we can fly again.

Have fun,

John G

 Well, at least I am glad SOME of you are getting your flying machines in order 
if you won't come and fly!!! ;-)  Actually it was 
kind of a bomb today as the wind was more gusty than I had wanted to admit, so 
I only got a little flying in with the Stryker Jet 
and the rest of the lightweight stuff will have to wait until a much calmer 
day. ;-)  Maybe the coming weekend will give us a good 
chance to fly but with the time change, we will either have to fly in the AM or 
start much earlier in the afternoon around 1 or 
2pm to really get some light to work with, so  we will have to be watching for 
the good days on the lektrik stuff!  I should have 
a nice surprise to try out next time we have good conditions.  I think this is 
one that Greg Clayton will especially like. I won't 
say more so as not to ruin it.  I just hope it flies well! ;-)

Sounds like David will have some stuff reaady soon, and Joe, well it sounds 
like Joe's plane may be run by the Umpalumpas from 
Willy Wonka's Chocolate factory! ;-)  Just kidding Joe, but I do hope you don't 
run into to much difficulty getting the linkages 
you want on that plane.  I really can't wait to see it for real, flight or not 
flight.  I just think it is going to look cool.

Until the next good air....

Building season for some, re-building season for others (me).  I spent some 
time working on a couple of planes today, accomplished a little, not a lot.

With Payday Friday came the first chance to order some Micro R/C gear for 
the upcoming SE-5. I really haven't felt comforatable putting anything 
together until I know how everything will fit and exactly what parts of the 
kit will have to be modified (butchered) to accommodate it all.

Getting the ailerons to work right in such a thin wing is going to be fun, 
and I've already started imagining an intricate and probably impossible mad 
scientist set of bellcranks and   pulleys to to match the pull-pull cables 
I'm planning to work the tail surfaces. I'm certain this would be heavier 
than a good old fasioned flex-tube setup, but I'm sort of Rube Goldberg 
about these things.

But so far, of course, there's been a lot of dreaming and basically no work 
done. Keeping track of the political races in Vilonia and trying to tell the 
county about them has been consuming all my time lately, leaving me with 
little time or energy even for visualization and contemplation about the 
plane.

But I guess you folks refer to the winter months as "building season," so 
I'll hopefully have something ready to tentatively lift its little wheels 
off the ground by spring.
