Seems like it would be easier for you 2 to just agree to disagree and to ignore each other.

    I tried to do that with previous cyber-stalkers, and it only works some of the time. It's like our other problem child (in more ways than you think), you can try to ignore him but it's not that easy.

          I have a few and just bought another hoping is a stunt model.  Of all I have only one is a stunt engine and it runs pretty good but I have to run it on 15% nitro25% oil since it will not run well for me using 5/22 Fuel. Here are some pics the last pic is the one I just Bought. You can se the difference in combustion chamber shape and cilinder porting. I also would love to acquire a couple of sets of the Brian Gardner pistons and liners.

Combat / Re: Combat Cats

I think "Friese" elevator means that there is some surface area forward of the hinge pivot. Most combat designs had the hinge pins at the very LE of the stabilator.

If you’re going to be coming up to Denver to fly FF, you might also consider joining us for some stunt flying at our Arvada Associated Modelers field. We’ve developed a well prepared CL circle there now and have a local cadre of 6 -8 regular fliers and growing. There’s usually activity on weekend days and we’re just getting started on trying to establish a more or less regular Wednesday morning session for those who have weekday time available. We’d love to have you join us if you can.

Hey Jack,

       Sounds good! I'll hit you guys up once I get settled in.

       I started flying FF last time I was at Carson since you guys up in Denver only have one contest a year (is it still that way?) and the next closest contest, I believe, is Jim Lees contest which is a bit out of range. My dad flew free flight real heavy back in the old days so I went and relived it a bit. Great group of guys in the Springs!

Huh. For some reason I thought they were joking with each other, but I guess not. I've met some of the nicest people I've ever met on this forum, but there is some dicks.

Now Bob, you're welcome to Perky & Fox 35 Speed.   Just let the sportsmen be sportsmen.  In this event, two expert events is all you can eat.

Have you ever suspected that I'm using reverse physiology?
When I invite you to enter, you don't always enter.
But when I try to keep you out, you always find a way to get in.

Gettin all AMP'ed up! / Re: Puzzle
« Last post by Motorman on Today at 12:09:58 PM »
Battery using more amps than voltage to get the job done? or maybe your bearings have gone south making more load in the motor. Is that prop a 2 blade, what do you mean multiprop? If it's a 3 blade made from an APC 11-5.5 I think it's too much load for that system. 9930 seems like allot of rpm.  Maybe give more time to cool in the summer.

I thought I was funny. Inspired a little bit. You inspire me Brett. Have for years. Thank you.

As far as my sentence structure, take it up with my publishers and the theaters who produce my work. Or the folks who commission me to write. Or Netflix and the like. My agent says that's in the offing. Or count up the incomplete sentences in this paragraph. To make you feel better. Or buy my new book of plays that will be out this fall. Pages and pages of bizarrely constructed sentences. Feast your sensibilities. Mystify yourself as to why all those theaters would bother to produce them. Guess some things are beyond your ability to understand. Tho you insist otherwise.

As far as Fox 35s, why do you bother to give advice on their modification and maintenance? You'd prefer to





hurl. As in the past, I report the practice of Fox 35 enthusiasts. Club members I fly with all the time. Folks who enjoy the relic from 1949. Still a symbol of our hobby to many.
