Got a reasonable flight outa the MC 72 , with 15G tail wt. Id decide , to get it to balance ' about the spar ' , as it did .
dunno if the 40S Max is gunna be to gutless & Thirsty , Might bung the bypass / boost on a Iron FP OS and see if thats the trick .
Lighter Still . With a 11 x 5 master or thinned Zinger , it was ' in the groove ' with the open Ex 71 Torp 40 , PREVIOUSLY .
The MEWGULL ! Id Cut in to pull the pushrod in on the Elevator Horn . Being a ' shoe horn ' FIT , it didnt want to UN , despite fileing,
muttering glaring and subdued brutality . Eventually got it off , the in the prepared inner bushed hole , Rewashered & Re bound & Soldered .
1/16 Ply Epoxied , let in Flush , as its all ' stressed skin ' in my humble outlook .Tossed the previous tail Wt. to start @ Sq. 1 .
Ratio is about 2 : 3 now rather than the previous near 1:1 , more usefull on an AFT. C.G. ,
As the Concept was Fwd C.G. it is , armspan wont make the tips
, buts about the front of the spar , maybe 1 1/16 Aft of L.E at C/S .
As Intended ( Similar to my goof of a jap. Hara Noblerish device that steered like a tractor , for those uninthe know , they turn tight for furrows .
SO , When the speed was roghly o.k. and the pilot ' almost there ( or THERE at times ) it was in the groove & turned fine .
Definately been overproping it , bouncey and needles good on the 11x5 rather than twelves ive been trying - after having seen Mr Hunts ( pictures )
of his wide blade 11 x 6 three blade . ( Must Make a note of the intakes ( asign the shipo a LOGBOOK ! ) and find the big ones ! ) Fond my ' missing ' line
clips up in a cnr. the other day . after 2 or 3 MONTHS concern .
Back on the 70 ft .018s for now . Need ' a hand ' or more spare to cut some New .016 solids . And Get some ' 14 inch reels ' as was the Kiwi Wont in the 70's .
Crick in the neck has O'Head 8s to ' out of site , far from out of mind ' just now , So Priority is The TANK & do a few props for the spinner , & maybe a Nose Skid
T/R style ,
Lined up a few .45s , tho looks like maybe the 40'll 4-2 , the OS dsoes ' the switch ' on the deck , fine . same angle ' cut in ' inverted & upright . Havnt pursued the Magnum 40 there
but maybe it will , Might do a few 11 x 4 s too , need the centers pulled in for the spinner cut outs , or V c V ,
May have it out Tomarra with the great cinamatographist
Thy Bro . ( Thinks He is ' The Director ' anyway .
