It has been that way for quite some time.  Stupidity I guess.  We were told to get lost many years ago at a local field.  I have never joined another flying club.  One very near my home promised a circle for C/l when negotiating with the city for use of the old landfill. Ten years later there is still no circle and when asked they shrug their shoulders and tell us that there isn't enough interest.  The strange thing is, once a year they have a C/l contest using the rc runway and it is very well attended by the local folks.

I have never liked any greens or chartruse. I like the current paint scheme.

Does anyone have this MAN magazine? I only need a copy of an article.

Thanks in advance.

"I remember flying Windys prototype ARF. It flew just as you described. You had to fight it to get to turn, and fight just as hard to get it to stop turning."

Mike: I'm not sure to which prototype you're referring but I was at John's when we opened the first two pre-production units that were sent from China. John stated that these were indeed the first prototypes and they were sent for evaluation. As I mentioned in my August 31 post, we assembled one of them and used it for testing. In that post, I also mentioned some of the other specs of the original.
Here are two more particulars from my notes:
Flap width at root: 2 7/8 inches. At tip, 1 3/4 inches.

Was the one you flew the prototype FOR the ARF? Before the specs were sent to China?

After we flew the ARF for a while, the factory sent me a wing for the ARC version, which I still have. Tony stated that it was identical to the ARF but of course, not covered. The photo shows the shape of the leading edge, as traced from the ARC prototype wing. Note that it is not sharp.

Again, I hope this helps.

   Exactly. Rounding off the LE and then reducing the flap size pretty well cures this.

I use Brian Eather #9 and Randys PA 75 pipe with the Enya 61CX and it works very well.

I want to take this time to let everyone know that I am starting a waiting list for a kit of Allen Brickhaus' Envoy VI modern stunt ship.

I plan to release the kit in later part of December; around the anniversary of Allen's passing. This kit is a tribute to Allen Brickhaus and we
 only plan to make this one time run of this kit, so please don't miss out on this kit.

Envoy VI by: Allen W. Brickhaus,
Designed in 2003 and finalized in 2004
630.57 square inches,  61.5 inches wingspan,
PA .65 piped power at 63 ounces

The Envoy VI is designed for a piped engine but can very easily be converted to a exhaust or for electric power by closing off the tunnel.

To get on the waiting list please send all emails to: and please add "Envoy 6 list" in the subject box.
