Post Splat action!
« on: July 15, 2017, 08:09:12 PM »
Wednesday, after getting home from destroying my Baby Pathfinder, I pulled a Brodak Baby Clown ARC kit off the shelf.  It is now Saturday afternoon, and here is my progress.  #^

The contest is tomorrow!  ~^

With the added flaps, Wing Area becomes 156 sq.in. and the weight came out just a hair under 8 ounces. The Medallion has a Tee Dee cylinder and piston and Merlin plug and extra cooling retainer. Galbreath precision needle valve. The wing becomes an almost perfect scale down of the Super Clown with the addition of the working flaps!

I like the tri-chromatic, asymmetric, post urban sprawl camo......

Looks great!  If I didn't have way too many 1/2A planes already, I'd be tempted to order an ARC Baby Clown myself.  Do the flaps make an appreciable difference in how it flies compared to one without flaps?  And, am I correct in that you are using crankcase pressure with the filed down T-nut threaded on the pressure nipple?

Yes on the turned down T-nut for a pressure fitting. The hose NEVER falls off!  y1

I haven't tuned this plane in yet, but the last one I did, there was a big difference. Both the added wing area and flap action helped.  ;D
