Another bump on an old but pertinent thread.

I just had my first experience with Polyspan and, it appears it will work better than I expected.  I did cover the wingtips with the stuff and had no problems.  I used Sig Stix-It and applied it to the tip rip.  Using a trim iron, I started shrinking the material on the tips before attaching it to take up some of the excess material the pulled it down as I attached it.

On another test wing, I am applying Polycryllic to fill the Polyspan.  After 2 coats, I'm pleased with the look.  I'll apply the trim/decals then a top coat of something to fuelproof it.

Dave Ek pits Stephen Jeansonne's Cosmic Wind. He must have hit it too hard, as the crank sheared during the race.

That's my pal Dave Ek!  We flew together back in 1962 when he was a football lineman at an area (No. Ill.) high school.  Guaranteed: if Dave hit anything, it was going to break.   Layingdown

Same fuel filter? Same muffler? Some have reported such strangeness from coked-up mufflers or glazed over filter screens that look clean, but don't flow enough/long enough. I hope I'd just run a whole tankful on the ground and see if the same thing happens, tho it wouldn't pinpoint anything in particular. Could indicate a flake of solder or something inside the fuel tank, perhaps? I'd take note of the run time. Steve

Will have to confirm with Don. He though it was too heavy to fly and he gave me the model in 2006 I think. Don had it drilled for a Magnum 36 so I bought one and started flying the heck out of it, wore the motor out and sent it back and got another one, flew it some more. I was running the poor 36 to death and about that time Bob Reeves had the Saito 40 running good. Tom Martin  said the T 6 needs one of those, so we took it to Bobs  shop and the bolt pattern was the same as the Saito. Never looked back, the engine just made the plane. The poor thing has flown hundreds and hundreds of flights.  The out board wing did come off at bottom of loops in very hard gusty winds, there was some oil soak but not a bad design.  Pulled bottom spar and sheathing apart. It did not break in dihedral area, shimmied back together with Tim Stagg's help in hotel in Uniontown, PA. Hardly missed a beat, and still flying well. I have flown Don's Dauntless and the Cub, to me the T 6 and Dauntless are much the same. Dale Gleason has the Cub and it flies ok but I think it would benefit from an LA 46 over the 36. Lots of ways to skin a cat but good power is a big deal in most situations in stunt. Don's designs are different looking almost to scale,but I feel like he sticks to good basic stunt numbers and his warbirds series will all fly well, power and trim will go a long way to success.
