Have not seen any drop bears ("wrong kind of trees around here"), but there are plenty of kangaroo droppings  Wink

By the look of the amount of Kangas in the west of Australia Pat they can stay here! They'd eat us out on the east coast.  There must be a hundred or so every afternoon somewhere near the practice site in one field alone.   Four years back on my only drive to the west you had to look out for kangas and emus across the plain which seemed to go on forever.  The only strike was an emu which luckily only caught the corner of the caravan.

Was great to meet you Pat as well as the other Canadians.

I picked up a Super Chipmonk kit last year. It looked very snazzy on the box art, but looking at the plans, it had a very pointed LE. I then thought it might not be a good performer and packed the box away. Was this a good move or are there points that need modification to produce a good flyer?

HI Andy.  It seems far too many drawings on the LE on many plans show it to be sharp. This is just a drawing and every one I know cuts and or sands the LE to a blunt rounded shape. More often than not, especially in the old MAN magazine the draftsman was not a modeler and had preconceived notions about the models he drew and they were wrong. Make the  LE round like a real airfoil.

There are things one can do with a pen that simply cannot be transferred to three dimensions, especially with balsa. Layingdown Layingdown Layingdown

I would only note that the center of the handle in Howard's diagram is roughly 4" (using my own paw as a test subject) from the center of my wrist joint.  Hoff Steve

I got one of those from Tom Lay as well. Runs like a top. He called it a special .40.  Hoff

Thanks for the posting Joseph.  I was all packed , ready to go, motel reservations, then the flood.  We have a solar water heating system. Came with the house. Works like  a charm. Two 120 gallon storage tanks, NEVER without hot water. But then there is only me and Mary and two spoiled cats. They don't use water, just spit, Any way, Wednesday I noticed a lot and I mean a lot of water in the laundry room. It had been raining, but with a new roof, I didn't think it was from rain. After about one minute of exploring I could see water slowly flowing out of the top of one of the tanks.  This system was installed in 1987, do the math. We called a maintenance  guy that fixed one of the silicone pumps about 6 years ago, but he is long  gone. Tried a local solar company, they do electricity only, but they knew a guy in Atlanta. Called him and he got here yesterday, finally, and in four hours he and his crew removed the two old tanks replaced them with one 80 gallon tank. High and dry now. But I missed a contest I had been looking forward to and had (four) no three trimmed planes ready to go. Crashed one due to bell crank failure. *&&^%$. "It's always some thing" Roseana Danna. Hoff

    Hi Randy:

    A couple of days ago, I mixed up my next gallon of fuel and I too mixed 14% syn,, 14% castor and 10% nitro.  I am going to try this for all of my fuel needs.  I still keep a bit no nitro fuel available for testing odds and ends.

                                                                                                        Be well,

                                                                                                        Frank McCune

That recipe will work just fine.  Oh! If you don't want to mess with that lousy, old cranky OS 35/40 just send it to me.  I have one that was built by the Tom and it only has about 55 + gallons threw it and still runs like a champ.
