My apologies for the unprofessional camera work, but this little guy is worth watching. It has been one of my greatest joys in life to share this hobby with him, and he has so much talent already at age 8. Very proud dad!

(Apparently YouTube muted it due to music copyrights, but he was flying to music before and was doing great)

Just wanted to post a couple pictures of some of the first giant scale flights on our new modelport. I think it's going to work out pretty well. Jace...you should post the picture you took of your Yak.

This years Throwdown will be the only giant scale and electric 3D event in Colorado. It's a great event, and we have a great bunch of guys to fly with every year! Plus, we happen to be flying the summer solstice, so we get to fly the 3 longest days of the year!

LAMA field http://www.lamarcclub.com/pls/apex/f?p=RC:HOME:0

But what we will have is 72 straight hours of flying and camaraderie for the rabid 3D enthusiast, or at least have a passion for 3D flying!


Giant scale and electric 3D Flying at its finest! Come join the fun, we will have an open flight line for you, and your spotter day and night!

We have activities such as; Hover Bowling, Mass Foamy Launch, and the Cub Swarm.

* Three days of no-holds-barred hucking and throwing down!

After much ado the Christen Eagle was maidened today. It is election day today so after voting I was off to the club for the long awaited maiden. Laziness took it's toll as I did not shim the wings to what I knew would be the right angles.

Getting to club there was no way I could get the flying wires to stay in place, even after fitting bits of silicon tube as retainers, so I took them off. After fighting the wires for 1/2 an hour there was a serious vibration that did not exist when I started the engine at home. I removed the spinner and it was better although not perfect.

After programming the idle down I let go of the Eagle and slowly pushed open the throttle. Man oh man, that GP 61 just disappeared with with the air frame! I was still looking for it on the runway while it was 50 m up in the air and climbing like a homesick angle. It soon became apparent that there was serious incidence problems. I managed to land it safely. These things have a tendency to nose over on landing and mine did not disappoint! So I have to work on the prop tips as well.

Well I will see to the incidence and prop tips tomorrow and give it a try on Saturday. I am really looking forward to flying the Eagle once all the problems are ironed out.

Till next time, safe flying and enjoy Nall. I am very envious!!

I am building my 2end Giant scale 125" B17 from Jan Hermkens plans. The first one flew so smooth that I decided to frame and build a second one. If anyone is looking into a 1/9 scale b17 project, this one is a good one to build.

Here's some pictures of the last few months or so of flying with my dad, some of our friends, and my ten month old son. Here is a video of the fly-in at my club a few weeks ago.

Hi Guys, I am after some info on cannister muffler assemblies, i want to fit a canister to one of my 50cc models, as running the model with a pitts style is to noisy for the flying site, heres the issue, the canister is to long to fit in the fusalage, and is fouling the wing tube so is it possible to cut the canister to fit, if so, what are the likely implications ? I would love some feed back on this problem.
Thanks
Steve.

I sheared off all 6 stock bolts on a flight with my new Aeroworks ultimate BiPlane. I was using a carbon fiber 28.5 x 12 mejzlic 3 blade smecter profile prop and cf spinner and backing plate. I pulled up and banked to the right at 3/4 throttle and the motor sounded funny so I throttled back and got it to the ground ok. It was the third flight, so the motor had at most 25 minuets of running. I was told the bolts could of been too loose or to tight and that using a carbon fiber backing plate might have contributed to the bolt failure. I have several cf spinners on my planes and haven't had this problem with the bolts or the spinners used. I have replaced the bolts with 12.9 grade bolts, am going to try the aluminum backing plate. I need to know what torque value works for the bolts on a DLE 170 cc with DLE canisters ?

Slowing getting my new warbird ready. It's tough only getting to work on it while I'm home but I plan on making more progress this weekend. Here's a few pics so far.

I just discovered this forum existed an hour or so ago and now I'm a member!
I just posted a thread to determine if giant scale is still what I remembered it as; 1/4 scale or 80" wingspan. It's been a while.

Here is a video of me throwing around my 3dhs 92 edge. I started flying 2 years ago and I have learned 2 things. 1. It's very addictive and 2nd is that you will have a lot less money in your wallet flying low! LolWatch "92 edge 3DHS" on YouTube
