I am sitting here after reading through this thread which I pulled up after getting the E-Mail from his daughter.   As a guest preacher said to us at Church several years ago are we really ever ready when the LORD finally calls us home.  I will miss Marvin as I have been the racing circle and combat with him.   He was fun to fly with as we would talk while flying.  He will be missed and I pray for Rhee and the family.   I guess I have known Marvin since the 60's when I was getting into competition.

     A very pretty plane, I hope it is light and will accelerate fast.  Good luck, Eric.

Ty, I am using Sig Lite Coat and was wondering if I can still add the 2 Tbs.

Hi Mark:

If an Elite 90 is some electric motor that I haven't heard about and not some IC engine that I haven't heard about, then yes the TUT will do this.

A proper answer for your question was long, so I started a new thread here:,38094.0.html.

With the interest generated for the TUT from Fred Cronnenwett's column in the Februrary 2015 Model Aviation, I have decided that I'm going to build a version that strips out the expensive inertial measuring devices (gyro and accelerometer), and only does tasks that involve input and output on the four servo ports.

Unless Fred objects with the implied use of his name, I'll be calling this the "TUT-FC".  The TUT-FC will share the following features with the full-sized TUT:

  • Ability to do straight timed sequences
  • Ability to modify an input and put it on an output
  • Ability to run the exact same program that Fred Cronenwett shows in his YouTube video here:
  • Ability to run the exact same program that Howard Rush used in the World Championship (Howard now uses the cutoff loop feature of the TUT, but did not want to work this into his routine before the contest)
  • Ability to choose programs using a JetiBox
  • Ability to change program parameters (timing, throttle settings, etc.) using a JetiBox
  • Ability to use USB to do anything that you can do with a JetiBox
  • Ability to upload new flight programs using USB

I am taking orders for the TUT-FC now.  They're selling for $40 each.  They come pre-loaded with Howard's FAI program, but you must let me know if you want Fred's engine sequencing program loaded.

Prayers and condolences to the family. I never met Marvin but we bantered a lot via email and personal messages.

  There are a few guys down there in that area.  I'm in the Ft Hood area, about 45 minutes up I-35.  I'm more focused on getting a few models built, and even that will be interupted by a 4-week business trip to California on 9 Feb, I do plan on getting down there and flying with you guys this spring.  Welcome to Texas!

We fly kids at Kidveture every year up at Oshkosh.  The circles butt up right against the departure path of the Bell 47s giving rides, and are only a couple hundred or so feet away from us.  Incursions are nonexistant.  However, when the wind is blowing the right way, and pushes the rotorwash into the circles, snap rolls and knife-edge passes, and other maneuvers become doable!

     Hi All:

     A friend of mine will be spending two weeks in Kissammee in about a week.  He is a long time CL flier and would like to meet another CL flier in the area.  If anybody has contact information for such a person, kindly post it here.

Everything that I could say about Marvin has already been said. We are all the less for our loss. One of the finest gentlemen that I had the privilege to know.
