Clint Eastwood with P-38 .  Undecided Wink bigas the F A I ' ll let ya go , nowadays . Weighing 5 ton it wallowed when the NSW crowd saw it , but changing from 9 x 6 to
10 x 4 3 blades got it doing the aerobics o.k. . Figure two good 25s'd fly it - if built light . Theroy was the wings should stay on at the ton If I put R.C. gear in it .

sitting in the rafters a bit chopped about . Only got six OS 35s now ,
though two should be enough . Will do moulded booms & maybe
nacelle .Finally figured rubber band retracts ,. for lite weight .

can we see a picture

When you were flying F2C at our T'ville field, Lee was flying the Lieutenant there.  Remember his Orange and Black stunter? That's it!

He's done it all and is essentially retired from serious competition...

Tell that to the 17 serious competitors who placed below him last weekend.

Leroy Ducharme (may he rest in peace, a true friend and gentleman) and I worked together on International Programs before we retired in the late 90's. When he heard I was building and flying again after 25 years he came out to the field to "watch". A club member lent him a profile to fly and he did a complete pattern on his first flight in ?? years.
He went home and came back a few weeks later with a newly built Lieutenant (It was the one he later flew at the KOI). A few weeks later he returned with the Lieutenant and his new  "Easy" combat ship from the 50's.
We flew together for ?? years until he passed away. With Larry Scarinzi's assistance (Larry, Red Reinhart and Leroy flew together for years) I submitted an article about Leroy to Stunt News which was published.
I have a fully framed out Lieutenant wing, thank you Bill Hummel, which hangs over my PC. I think of Lee often.   Hoff

Mr. Pailet also has a construction article in the issue for his fantastic competition 1/2A Free flight...can't wait to build it!  Beautiful as well as functional and very competitive, and doesn't require all kinds of special unobtanium to build.

I second the wish for the editors to interview one or more of the top CL Stunt competitors.  My vote would be for Mr Ted Fancher...He's done it all and is essentially retired from serious competition...perfect candidate to tell it like it is!  He also a true Gentleman!
Don't tell him I said any of this good stuff about him... Turn

was a old ' Motorcycle ' cartoon with a doorframe with a low wide cutout. " are you the bloke that built the transverse 16 in his front room ."  Hugh

ANYWAY . the olde 4 foot spar or trailing edge suckers , built at 36 ounces ( if your lucky ) with a unsilenced Fox 35 or the like , tend to be RELAXING to fly .
These days youd go for a silenced 40 . Knocking it up on a Friday night , or over the weekend ; youd be lucky to get it at 40 ounces , without neurosis or
excess use of braincells or dollars . unless your Mr monocote . Lips Sealed . This'd be about the max weight youd get a tight turn from a thin wing thing from .

Some people go flying for the ' buzz ' , some to chill out , and some for the social thing , or to escape the domestic bliss .

For a relaxing / low intensity trip - a light well powered straight sucker on 60 ft. of wire , should cut the mustard . Then theres the economies etc .
Cant see most plastic holding something firm enough for good performace in indifferent air .

Bigger ( 60 in odd ) schneurle things can take a bit of wire , & hold themselves out ; but the level of primary attention to the task is usually paramout .
While they'll fly accurately they need to be flown accurately where the olde 35 size suckers flew themselves a bit more . ? ? ?  Angry maybe . My perception anyway.
Though they all want watching in the bottom hourglass corner  Angry for some reason . Ft. per second etc and so on .

Thanks to everyone.  I made it to Lynn's fun fly today, Saturday, and tomorrow I'm getting together with Rich and Kaige Jones for a Flite Streak tuneup.  Lots of great people here in Colorado. I have two offers to store an airplane here  for future trips so I have to bring something to fly on my next trip. 

Nice to hear that there's still some normal folks there.  I lived for quite a while in Denver and Ft collins, and all my friends from there say most of the denver population is High on a whole new meaning to Rocky Mountain High! y1 Layingdown
