Andrew your in great company with Clancy. He was the lead engineer and sponsor of our JYW'S team at Brodaks one year. A super nice guy.

The motor does not have to be mounted dead center, that's one nice thing about electric power. (you can put the motor anywhere you like) And it allows you to concentrate on the flying instead of all the other messing around...... and if the local rules dictate an offset motor, you do it. We have to put this in perspective.... I am not looking for a world championship but I would like to have a plane that won't limit me with performance. The rules..... well you have to have them and they do change and they are different in the various regions. I compete to have fun and meet new people and so far rules are and have been a formality that every one has to follow to make the competition official. That's to cool thing about our sport you can have hang ups if you want them but at the end of the day we are all out for the same thing. (Fun) Where an I going with this post?Huh no idea but I have been spending a few hours gluing PVC together and I just thought I would comment on the offset motor thing.  Hugh

WaRrEn :-)

AMA authorized SIG's (special interest groups) to insulate itself from rules discussions.  It seemed like a good idea at the time.

They instantly sprang up for every event.  Some worked.  Many didn't.  In my opinion, most of them tend to be dominated by a small core of very serious competitors who work hard to insure that everything continues to go their way.  The weakies soon realize that they still have no voice and drop out.  This is just ducky for the top dogs.

The idea of a SIG going broke is amusing.  What did they do, build a high rise office building?  With the advent of home computers and the internet a SIG doesn't need postage stamps. envelopes, and long distance phone bills.

NASA is a classically dysfunctional SIG from the CL point of view.  Combining RC & CL scale under one RC-dominated umbrella insured that CL scale rules will always be screwed-up.

We also have the Brodak Fly-In with the side mounted engines and 3/4 max thickness rule.

Why not build the Imitation with side mount engine? Or go electric? Either way you could meet 3/4 thickness.


Point is electrics are not side mounted they are radial mounted in the center line of the fuse.

I have been trying to find a profile design that will be competitive in a few categories and was wondering what profile plane would give me the best performance. I have been looking at things like the Pathfinder, profile Oriental, the Tutor (which is legal for 3 categories)  and a few others but I really don't want to go to any thing really big. Does any one else know of any modern profiles that will give good performance?



One day many many years ago, I went to our flying field with a newcomer from China. His model was not assembled yet so I let him fly my Tutor (the third one I had owned). To be fair, it was well trimmed out and the engine ran very well. He made some climbs and dives to check it out then proceeded to fly the pattern as no Tutor had been flown before. I was so humbled. From that point forward I never looked to my model for answers.

You can make ANY properly built, aligned, powered, trimmed profile model fly EXCEPTIONALLY well. All it takes is a bit of practice and a couple of World Championship wins under your belt.

Oh, reread the line about a bit of practice.   y1
