Brian,

Did you ever find a copy of the Pitts Special manual?

I am picking up two of them (well used) at the end of the month and sure need a manual too.

Thanks,
R.C.

Well it never fails when its time to load up and hit an event there are a million "little things" that need to get done. You know wash the truck, check the oil, check tire pressure. Then there is the trailer that is a disaster from the weeks of flying. Where is the IPOD? is the battery charged? Do I have enough fuel. So last night I started getting things ready and I'm running around like a fool and my wife with cocktail in hand is just standing back watching with that ever so popular smirk. I get a glance and I ask "What" her reply, You think I'm bad when we go places you should see yourself all worked up over what a bunch of Old, over weight, grown men that play with toy airplanes. You are truly pathetic you dont put that much energy into family weekends. Then she pauses and says! Honey would you like me to lay out your clothes for the day? How many of you get the same treatment? I'm sorry that some of the best days of my life have been hanging out with guys in the middle of nowhere playing with toy airplanes. Not to be deterred I gave her the finger pushed her aside and kept at it.. 3DHS shop gig Saturday Dallas TX. I'm coming!

Well, even with all my great planning to get out and get to new friends and new events. I forgot one key factor. "Honey Do's" Ah, well with the role reversal I have been thrust into the last 1 1/2 years I sometimes lose track of time and dates other than flying events of course. Well the wife got home late on Friday and of course I am loading up the trailer and getting the ice chest ready when she says "Hey aren't you going to paint the kitchen, kitchen cabinets this weekend?" I of course replied
"NO" then she swiftly reminded me that memorial weekend is just days away and we have family and friends coming out to the house and I said I would help her out with that before family arrived.. "DOH" Not all hopes were lost I did manage to bag ten flights with my charger foamie. (Hate to see charged batts go to waste). All in all a good weekend with the kids pitching in hitting a baseball game and paint lots and lots of paint. OK, so next weekend for those of you that are airplane Nutz like me, family weekend coming up.. Next up June 5th 3DHS gig in Dallas, TX..

Well its June in Texas and the only thing I look forward to is my long list of events and fun flys that are on my list. Not a day goes by I don't check my calendar or go to the AMA website to check if more events have been posted. I don't care helo's, float fly's, fun fly's, club picnic's, giant scale 3D, electric only,**** I will go to a damn scale event or even glider events.Heck I showed up to a club picnic and I wasn't even a member never even flown there just saw it thought I could get there. I just hate the week days when there are no events. I go to the club field at least a couple days a week sometimes just to watch the grass grow or the birds flying around. I have it so bad I may have to go to meetings again. When I first started in the hobby I got like this but all internal club crap and club events never going far from home.. Now that I know whats out there I only think about getting on the road and meeting new people. Ok, this weekend a Big bird in Mt. pleasant, then a Helo event in Dallas.Then a long week of no new friends.. Man really need to get to the nall in 2011 I think that event could hold me over for the long winter.. Or simply drive me nuts..

Ok, enough rambling storm is a couple hours away I think I'll go fly..

Late

Anyone out there that can recommend a soft mount for a DLE 30, or can you just put rubber washers in between the fire wall and the motor mounts?
Don't know for sure if you need it, but the manual says while breaking it in serious damage can occur to the engine if you don't have the engine soft mounted.
Appreciate some thoughts on this

My friend Pengo and our other friends fly every day on the week in the night, after 11P.M. when the Gym closed for games and stay free for planes. The problem is wake up early in the next day.

Below some photos:

The plan HERE.

Eletronics:
TURNIGY 35-42D 1000kv
TURNIGY Plush 40amp Speed
TURNIGY 2200mAh 3S 35C Lipo
Slow Fly Prop 12x6
Servos Futaba S148

---EDIT---
We tested the plane with battery 4S, but after 4min of flying the motor burned, we still not know why, can be propeler(12x6) or the bearing, the motor is heavy for run with hand.

Below, the video with 4S battery and the new photo with Pilot(left) and Constructor(right).

Here we have some old pictures from back in the day. Some pics I even had long hair "Heavy Metal".....lol. I still can't believe it.

My Comp Arf Yak55Sp 2.6m is the best flying plane I have flown yet. This plane flies smooth, locks into the maneuver and holds it with very little effort. The plane is a joy to fly and looks sharp. Powered by a Brison 6.4ci and Vess prop. JR and Hitec digital servos, guidance by Futaba.

My other picture is of a 35% RadioCraft Staudacher. BME 100, Carbon prop and spinner, JR digital servos, Futaba guidance. 24 pounds. Wonderful flying plane and LIGHT.

Alpha A-4. This baby was set up for 2100mAh 4S 14.8v and was very quick in my opinion. I purchased this plane complete from Hole Digger on RC Groups. I believe the plane was built by Corsair nut. Pictures were taken by previous owner. This plane was just to small and fast for me to see. I sold it after 4 flights.

I was exposed to the hobby at a very young age by my dad. In the first picture with the Mirage Jet and the Andrews Trainermaster I was about 4 years old.

In the second picture with my dads Aeromaster Bi-plane. I was about 7 years old.

Wow, after 55 years of not modeling I find myself getting back into it. Just got a LT40 and am looking forward to some good weather so I can start flying. Of course my goal is to get into the Giants.
