Re: Grahame White Lizzie peanut

Hi Tim, weight with flying prop is 12,6 grams, of which 4,3 are the flying prop and the dummy engine, balast included. When I did the initial test flights I used bluetac as balast. I tried to make the engine as heavy as the bluetac. I hope this will be the flying weight, with rubber extra, of course...

Thanks Roman, and this is the current status: Pilot carved from pink foam, dummy prop fittings done, still missing a windscreen, a fitting on the cowling and the fuselage step... 20170521_165704.jpg 20170521_165615.jpg 20170521_165635.jpg 20170521_165856.jpg For the engine I chose to make it floatin...

Re: Grahame White Lizzie peanut

The main missing detail was the dummy engine. a balsa crankcase was turned and aluminium tubing was glued as a base for each cylinder. Inside the aluminium tubing I added equal weights of lead, to reach the needed front balast for balancing purposes. The complete noseblock assembly weighs 2 grams......

Grahame White Lizzie peanut

Here is something from the old SFA, some of you might remember... Since I never got to finish it, it is still an open project, so I thought about posting a little more on it. The model was roughly finished (no dummy engine and no details) and I was able to do some test flying, which proved promising...

Re: Lockheed Altair

Hi Tim, I must say I am not a great fun of right flying models, although it is mainly a personal preference. This does not mean that you should not try it, if the model seems to go better that way. Whatevere keeps it off the walls and long enough away from the ground/floor/manure is good. Looking at...

Re: Forum Archive rebuild progress

Hi all,

nearly 3 months have passed since we last talked about the archives, still no progress and unfortunately not even a reply.

Re: Lockheed Altair

Hi Tim, In static it looks pretty impessive. In flying it seems to be off to a good start. Rather brave of you to toss it outside, on the plus side there are no walls or tables, a little more grass would be more reassuring. It is a pity you only ordered swiss weather from Roman. He could have chiped...
