Re: 2011 NZ Rumble - Feb 17 to 20

I wondered if if that may have been the case. Just stalling it too much with too much elevator? Would that also account for my change in line after exiting snap? Has been my biggest problem, snaps.

I'm also wondering if my prop choice is not all that flash for IMAC. 27x10 thin Mejlik on DA85. Maybe a higher pitch like a 26x12 or 25x12 or something?

Re: 2011 NZ Rumble - Feb 17 to 20

don't stress simmo I'm in exactly the same boat! flew avanced at the nats and was all over the show after the snaps and power was definatly an issue.
I originally wasn't going to fly advanced but since a certain cripple didn't turn up I was forced to move up!!
Can't wait for the rumble! Will be great to see the ozzys back over here!
You been doing much practice worms?? Would be keen to come over and do some practice before the rumble?

At least he didn't break it by falling into ditches! haha. Still flying you Compy 300?

Shame I don't have anyone down here to compete against in Advanced, or at least help with teaching me more. Am sincerely jelous of the north island community and regular comps. Would cost me over a Grand every time I wanted to come up to a comp

Simo a pipe for the DA 85 or a hundy might be the trick... I think the 26x12 might help but finding a bit more power would help the most

Yup still flying the 300 might look at selling it after the rumble and get a bigger one!?

You & Wormz need to drink a bit more milk and get some calcium into those bones. Falling up stairs ???? you must have been smashed LOL literally in the end. I dropped anXR400 on top of me the other day going down a fairly steep hill. Pretty good bruise on the rib cage where the handle bar tried to go through me but nothing broken-luckily. I might of had to wear my missus sunnies, but at least I'm not soft.

Re: 2011 NZ Rumble - Feb 17 to 20

So we're all talking about the IMAC part of proceedings, but thats not even half of the Rumble make-up.

Undie Hundy? Whats your pics on differences this year? Maybe Trojans instead of cubs? Compulsory nightlights?

After hours stuff? More watching me fly at night with fireworks? Or are your BAST*rds going to join me for once?

I think we need a race.... Two utes, two drivers, two Trojans, two pilots in the back of the utes.... see where i am going? Both car, pilot and plane must cross finish line to win....

I have been happy with 27x10 Mej on the DA 85 in the Su 29. Lack of power in the vertical snaps is definitely an issue though. I have done some test with the 85 on a pipe and can get the same rpm on a 27x12, however balance becomes an issue for me so I will need to make a U shaped pipe. I would stay with 27" diameter as it is more efficient, if noise is an issue slow it down with more pitch.

Interestingly I got the RC Aerobatics with Don Szcur DVD and his advice for snaps is rudder aileron only for positive snaps and rudder aileron and a little down elevator for negative snaps! You can see the lack of a break in the demo he does too, man he would be so zeroed over here.

As an aside the Slick 360 is an updated Extra 230 for the lower (4 cylinder) IAC classes. According to the Slick site it was in response to the newer AC like G202 getting down graded for faster roll rate than snap rate.

Re: 2011 NZ Rumble - Feb 17 to 20

Hey Rod, Hows things? Still building squadrons of beautiful aeroplanes? I will have to practise my snaps, as I can get them half the time but I need to be getting them 100% of the time. I think I'm sharing Bogans 3m Compy with John Heigl, I may have better luck with that. Need to then practise snaps from step one with that again....

I flew my Sukhoi today and it has plenty of grunt vertically, and dissapears rapidy on a vertical upline. I wont open up a big "How to snap correctly" debate, but I think I'm just using too much elevator and maybe rudder in my snaps. Will experiment tomorrow. So using no elevator wouldget a zero here? Is alot easier to control using no elevator but doesn't look overly "snapish"...
