I'm not using a Cox .020 I'm saying very low power swinging a 9-8 at 4,000 rpm or hopefully less. A CF prop that would break would have to be paper thin.

All this "FAA" stuff has all been very confusing to me. Hard for me to know "just the facts, M'am, just the facts".

SO... in recap in simple terms:

DO we control liners have to register our airplanes or not?

Thanks.



Practicality says they have to catch you first.

AFAIK (and this is third-hand, so take it with a grain of salt) if you don't use 2.4GHz throttle control then no, you don't.

    Hi Andre!
    I never did and never will. They have yet to put in in a clear, understandable language yet, but as I understand it, things are pretty much where they are before the whole thing started. No way for the FAA to enforce it. Some one posted a reply somewhere on an incident where a quad landed on some one's property, the local law enforcement was called, the quad had a FAA register number on it, and when contacted the FAA said they had no way to trace it! Where you live out there in the mountains, you ain't worth the gas to come get you!!
     Nice to hear from you!

I haven't used Monokote in years, but I tried ULTRAKOTE with surprising success.  Not even a 15-pointer, but far less work than a dope finish.

   As 1/2A R/C Texaco progressed, guys resorted to running 10-3 props on .049s to stretch out the fuel run. For those who don't know, 1/2A Texaco is an R/C discipline where one flies replica old time free flight models down sized for .049 power, guided by two channel R/C, and timed to a 15 minute max. The 10-3 trick stretched the fuel run out immensely, so one would have to rely less on thermal catching ability. It was a very slow run and took almost the whole 15 minutes to get any appreciable altitude. The practice was later banned and the fuel capacity was cut to a normal size baby Bee tank and prop size limited to 8 inches, I believe. I don't think you will ever get a .020 to swing a 9" prop, even with low or no pitch. At least not well enough to make any kind of useful thrust. to test a theory, just bush out any wood IC  9-4 or 9-3 prop, if you can find any, bolt it on and see what happens. Probably a lot of popping and not much else.
   Type at you later,
    Dan McEntee

Kudos to the two Daves.  Our "buddy-since-his-kid-hood" David Fitz for prevailing over a very talented group of champions and to Dave Trible for almost making me feel just fine for sitting on my a$$ for the week as a long distance voyeur instead of driving cross country to enjoy the heat and humidity for real!

A great big atta-persons to Denny and his team who made it all happen.  A hard job well done by all.

That's ok Dan, try to imagine a Cox .020 with a 9" prop and you'll get a better picture of what I'm doing.
