 I think it's about time that tethered (u/c) flight got back to its roots. I'm looking at a drawing in the Feb. 1956 Aero Modeller (page 83). It shows an 1909 elec. plane that carries it's own battery and was flown on a string- original tethered flight, and predates Nitro I.C. Not the only plane I've found reference to, but the one that I happen to have handy. So yes about time we were getting back to our roots. ( all is typed tongue in cheek- except for the reference. If they were accurate then elec. predates Nitro I.C., not sure about gas. )

Brian, where is the old family farm?
The old farm is now a BnB called Sculptured Rocks, and it's in Groton (http://www.sculpturedrocks.com/). It was her dad's family that owned it, but that was many many years ago. You live near there by chance???

   Did we also have a wire-bending issue?

Not quite sure what you mean. I only "think" the elevator push rod is flexing under load, but not sure. There are no bends in it otherwise. (Sorry, but I'm sure I'm missing your point. Uhhh, are you referring to Mike's dilemma?)

Did not get to fly Easter myself, what with Church activities and the feast over at my daughters place.   Did I mention I eat too much.  Of course those pictures of me flying tell the story.

John, that makes me think of the aroma of fresh mown hay and also the smell of it when I would get in the loft to push some down to the cows.

No, wish I could. My wife has been after me for 13 years to take a motorhome trip to New Hampshire to see her "old family farm". She wants to go in September or October to see the colors . . . but that would mean giving up the MnM or the GSSC. No way! This is a compromise trip; longer, but not the season she wanted. I'm missing the NW Regional this year, but it will be a smaller event due until they get a new location. Hopefully next year.

See Ya!

Steve, better make that phone call...electrics are allowed in Classic at VSC. One twin engined electric model scored quite well at the 2013 edition. As far as pipes go...one was tried many moons ago (no relation to Doug), I think it was an Olympic with a pipe. Pilot unnamed to protect the guilty. With the intrusion, I mean inclusion, of electric motors in  at VSC it may be time to open that door once again. As has been previously stated, a tuned pipe is just a long CF muffler. I'm thinking a "United" with a PA 40 Merlin. Cool
