This was some of the best woodworking I've done. Shame the finish is only mediocre, but it should fly OK. We'll see shortly. I'll post a couple of detail shots for Wayne in the construction thread.

One virtue of having adjustable anything is that you can move it out of adjustment and see what difference it makes.  Sort of a learning from planned mistakes thing.   Stir the pot

 I like it, sometimes I wish I would have done mine in green.

I saw one of those OS Max III 29R's with the remote needle.  It was quite a concept at the time, although a bit mis-guided as it were.

The Max III had a gigantic air intake when you took out the venturi insert.  The remote was supposed to get the needle body out of the throat and make the air intake even bigger, thereby increasing performance.

The falacy was that the throat was already grossly oversize.  So letting in even more air just made it hard to needle.

I will reply to a few posts once in back home. However will voice an opinion.

I watched dave and brett practice leading up to and including all of the nats flights. Winning this event is easy. Simply fly accurate.

The eletric setup of pauls ship was nothing short of exceedingly amazing.  They dont give up anything on the ic setup. Any change the top boys made was in response to pushing scores toward 600. Unless you fly at the top its impossible to understand the importance of consistency in engine speed and how critical it is to extract the maximum from your package.

This contest. ... like all others lets the best stunt flier win. This was no different dave flew better geometry and had excellent heights all week.

Power Plant doesnt matter. Its coincidence ic were 1&2

I agree with the position that the McCoy is a low price low quality product.  If you have one that runs at all you are lucky.  A lot of McCoy buyers were not so lucky.  If it runs, leave it wide open and enjoy it while you can.

I the past I have tried to muffle engines that were made to run wide open with limited success.  Better to use an engine that was engineered for a muffler.

Ok here is a crazy thought.

Shug on his tall unicycle, flying a BiSlob with his left hand and juggling those red balls with his right hand while balancing his throwing knife on his nose.   Clown
And two people at the edge of the circle throwing boomerangs around the circle.

Has anyone seen all his shenanigans on YouTube? He's a hoot!

Great stuff Shug!

Like I said its a crazy thought. Dont try this at home.

Out standing Randy.  I love the lines and the color scheme really set it off.   Hope it flies better than you expect.
