Big Red, I had a G/P Pitts with a 3.2 on it and that was as small as I would go. IMO the G38 would be very lacking. The plane will top out at about 16LBS.

Re: Fly'n with the Circus. RDRC's traveling Circus

Well guys didn't get to fly the GEEBEE this sunday,, I got caught up Saturday and just didn't get a chance to finish it, and it was so beautiful yesterday,, but she is all finished now, so I guess I will wear it out next sunday, and it will give me this week to tune the YS right,, ,
I instead flew Freak Nasty and the heli,,,, but anyway, I guess the excitement will go on next sunday, I want to video tape the first flight but I will have to find a camera,,

Jon, if you want, I can get it on video. I'm not sure about Sunday. I'm heading up to VA this weekend. Not sure when I'm returning. If you want to fly during the week, it could get over there right after work.

lol I don't know why folks think that GeeBee's are hard to fly. I've known a lot of folks that have the GP GeeBee(lol say that 5 times fast....) and it appears to fly great, though I've never flown one. I usually come back Sunday afternoon, but it's always up in the air. There's a chance I could have to come back on Friday. I'll let ya'll know if I'm around.

Re: Fly'n with the Circus. RDRC's traveling Circus

Cool deal,, , I just think alot of the problems are
1. Unexperienced pilots.
2. Stall the plane.
3. Trying fly it with either to high of rates or improper CG placement.

Re: Fly'n with the Circus. RDRC's traveling Circus

Hey Jon I've heard from some Gee Bee owners having problems with there wing breaking in flight because the shear webs were installed wrong, But that was a while back so maybe they got that fixed by now.

Nothing like having something else to worry about. LOL

Good luck on the Maiden.

Hey Ken
Yea,,, I heard ya bit the bullet and went for the gold. Been trying to tell ALL the guys about this radio, but you know,,,,,,,,,some listen,,,,some wont!
Anyway,,,I'm sure you've already discovered how easy it is to program, and youre gonna lovvvvvvvvvve that 2.4 technology. Picked up my second 9303 last week, and Im looking forward to point'n that new Python and Yak around with it in 2008.

Hey,,,how bout all you goons come down to East RC tonight! Few of us are headed that way. Lets get a crowd together. Maybe even meet somewhere for dinner on the way. Looks like I might be War Bird'n it after tonights trip.

Weather Bulletin: From a line just west-northwest of Raleigh NC running south-southeast to Vanceboro NC the weather will be cooler in the mountains than it is in the summer! Also tight bellies will prevail due to massive overloads. HAPPY THANKSGIVING GUYS!
