Thanks for stopping by. I have built this website in hopes to help anyone that has a building problem or question. If you have the answer to someones question feel free to jump right in.

Rules of the road are NO Flaming! NO Cussing or anything else that unproductive. If your found doing so you will be warned and then banned!

I would like to add this site is run by us as a whole. Yes I own it, but only you can run it. So the input is only as good as you make it. There are many charter members to watch this board and a moderator will be in each section. Not that I am in for censorship, it is that I would like to keep it clean and informative as possible.

Have fun and any constructive criticism is welcome as long as it is done in a positive way. Send a note or make a suggestion.

Hello,

A friend at Brodak's told me of Stunthanger and recommended it.  Good advice!

I flew c/l a little back in the late '60/s but not enough to learn much.  Had a Ringmaster (didn't everybody?) and later a Super Ringmaster.  I've been going down to Brodak's in Carmichaels, PA for the better part of two seasons now.  My home is in WV, about 35 miles from Brodak's.

I'm progressing some but am having trouble keeping engines running and planes flying as they should.  Often only get one or two reasonable flights in per visit to Brodak's. 

I realize that having the perfact set up is quite elusive and time and trial is part of the equation.  My question is: Can anyone tell me of a combination of airplane, fuel system, and engine that -should- be reliable enough to be able to spend more time actually flying  the thing than I do working on it?  Perhaps a question that has no easy answer but, although I enjoy reading about the intricacies of tuning a craft,  at my level of experience and ability, I  am not able to make good use of it.

I probably will  never enter any competition as time and budget (not to mention old age)  won't allow me to do so but I am having a great deal of fun flying and I'm sure I would enjoy it even more if I could remove some of the frustration of engines that run just fine for a few flights then get hot, won't start, etc..

Maybe there is a part of this forum that addresses beginning set ups for new fliers?  If so, please point me in that direction.  If not any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Best regards to all,

Welcome Joe.

What size plane do you want to fly? There are many good set ups.

Hello Robert,

I have several planes which include two Ringmasters, a Twister, a Top Flite Nobler ARF and a Brodak P-40.  There are a few others  that are smaller ( 20"-32" ) planes that I'll keep on the shelf (for now).  The Ringmasters have Enyas (.25 & .29) on them.  The Nobler is powered by a Brodak .40, the Twister, an OS LAS .40 and the P-40 has an OS FP (converted from r/c).  I'm using 11-4 props on all of the .40 engines, at present.

 I've tried different fuel systems.  Klunk, muffler pressure, standard (fill ,vent, fuel supply) and uniflow.  Can't seem to find a "winner" in the fuel supply category. 

Don't know if I should have the OS engines modified for stunt or leave them alone for now.  The Enya engines ran well then decided not to?

I am fairly comfertable with some of the stunt pattern ( loops, some inverted, and figure 8s (horizontal)  but can't seem to get a plane to fly well enough for overhead maneuvers.

Thanks for your response to my first post.

Joe

Joe,
A Ringmaster is a great choice. I had great luck with one with a Fox 35 up front. Back then, I used a (metal)Perfect wedge stunt tank. Randy Smith had some good ones,as I'm sure Brodak and others do as well..Just make sure the pickup feed line is even with the venturi line; performs well inverted or upright.I prefer metal tanks on profile models. If you feel like moving on up from profile ships, try the new TF Nobler with an OS40 or 46. There's plenty of threads out here to help you with upgrading(conrol system) it, and for the price, you can't go wrong! With an ARF, you don't have that emotional attachment you have with building a kit/scratch built, just go fly!
Good luck and keep your lines tight! #^

Hi All:

Great site and pleased to be here ...

Originally from San Diego (born and raised), I now live in the Dallas, TX area ...

Started with all those terrible little .049 craft (that all looked and flew the same) and finally had my 1st successdful flight with a Ringmaster and a Redhead McCoy .35 ...
was flying Noblers and a Thunderbird when we moved to TX ...

Have built and flown ever since the old Strombecker kits, primarily RC sailplanes but have found C/L again and am going gung-ho !! ...

Anyone in the Dallas area want to get together, give me a holler ...

Thanks,

Pepper
