Im about to make a change as well might start visiting the Galion club this summer and Findlay as well and maybe just a thin maybe I might even join the Tiffin club again who knows what the warm weather will bring.... but one thing I am sure of this year I will be flying a lot more hope to see you soon did someone say NITRO QUAD ! LOL!

I'm just electric on anything 30cc-ish and under.... anything
bigger is automatic gas....... I love dabbling in both...
I think hell did freeze over hard this winter.... been a hard one for sure!
In fact, I think it destroyed my brain's logic processor...
I should have a new electric 60" MSX-r along with the new 87" Redwing
Slick 55cc in the hangar for the start of the new season......
Lemme' tell yah.... I'm watchin' that calender...... C'mon spring.....
Only a couple more weeks roughly.....
any freinds left around later after that one.... woohooooo....
I say, definitely try the beano.... before and after that meal..........
Later on, I really want one of those......
I looked at that one hard when I was hunting for electric
accessories..... just couldn't hit the price on it when I was trying
to budget everything in along with the Four 6s-5000+ lipo
packs last year.... So I took the $59 power supply route.... figure I'll
upgrade sometime down the road as my power consumption needs grow...
But for now, I'm extremely happy with what my equipment has been
doing for me... I can say it definitely keeps me in the air with no
quirks.......... I know even with my 47A/12v supply, I can make a generator
(For the electric newbes/non-electric people.....
41amps at 24v is the equivalent of 82amps at 12v.....
while both are roughly 984 watts, the work load going through
the wires at a higher voltage/lower amps is less.... hence
wires & connectors don't get as warm......At a higher voltage and lower
amperage, you can use thinner/longer wiring...)
When I charge a 22v 6s-6000mah lipo battery from a 12v supply it draws
about 13amps If I charge from 24v source, I'll draw about 6.5 amps from
that power supply,
but in either case, the generator or 110v source will still have to supply
156 watts, which at 110volts is 1.4 amps.....)
Ok, there's my babble for today.... hehehehehehe...........
OMG, a nitro quad....... you are scaring me......
....and it's interesting how you mention that.... I bet it is possible
with the crank-sensored nitro engines now..... incorporate
throttle servo control into the gyro/controler like the governer
systems for the nitro copters...........
--- could you just imagine the chicken dance that a 4-propped
nitro quad would do in a bad scenario..... crazy....

I'm also considering an evolution 10cc gas to go into an old sig skybolt that i'll be fixing up. Will be needing some help when it comes to servers for the big skybolt. Kinda clueless when it comes to something that big. Also any other recommendation for motors.
A bit of a story on the skybolt. My dad picked up the planes for the skybolt at the 1981 Toledo show for $20. http://www.hostetlersplans.com/skybolt.html
He also has the cowl, wheel pants & landing gear, decals and a big stack of balsa that he was going to use to build it. While, 34 years later, it remains un-built, so i figure it's time to do something about that. I found out that American Balsa cuts kits for this Skybolt. After contacting them I found out they will be at the Toledo show this year offering $50 off show special on all kits. Will be picking up the kit at Toledo and over the summer will try to get everything else to get it flying. Should be interesting, my first gasser and my first kit build.
