Once again Martin comes through with great reference material!! Went flying this morning. Took three planes and broke one. My little green tripe!! Landed on our dirt runway and caught a little weed on the wing between the wheels. Instant cartwheel!! Broke the middle wing off one side and the top wing came completely off. I'm in the process of repairing it now. But the flight was great till the landing!! Oh well, we build 'em, we fly 'em, we crash 'em, and then build them again!!! I didn't build it to be a static model. How are all you guys doing? Happy 4th!!! Thanks Bob for more planes to look at!! Steve

Rebuild
 
Steve, tell us you rebuilt her! :) What a shame to crash that fine aircraft. :eek: Then again the real one did the same thing. :mad: Or you could always blame it on wind shear!! ;) Martin

WWI Ace 07-06-2008 11:03 PM

It's fixed!! I just need to do a little wing tweaking. She'll live to fly again!! Steve

I'm really enjoying that site, and the videos especially. Very nicely done, and some amazing looking planes. Thanks for sharing that.

Percyflyer 07-09-2008 05:56 PM

Check back often. We are behind with some 2007 stuff and the new 2008 video. Hopefully we will get some new stuff on there in the next couple of weeks. I will have the test flight of my new 1/4 scale SE5a and the Hanger 9 Camel in a few weeks. I have too many projects and not enough time.

Death of the Red Baron is on the Military Channel right now!

7car7 07-16-2008 11:28 PM

Wow, where is everybody? Last few days have been dead around here!
Hope my WWI nut buddies are all OK.

WWI Ace 07-16-2008 11:37 PM

I'm still here!! I've just been busy lately. I need to get busy building again.

7car7 07-16-2008 11:46 PM

I was beginning to hear crickets chriping!

I updated my Albatros rebuild thread with new pitchurs, but (sniff) no one seemed to notice:sad: (:D)

On another note, I'm curious - I was looking thru more pictures of the Dawn Patrol Site, and noticed a lot of the large models have both sides ailerons drooping down. What's going on with that?

Can someone point me to this Dawn Patrol site. It looks interesting.

Percyflyer 07-17-2008 03:13 AM

Don't know what that particular site is , but try www.hoosierdawnpatrol.com

The ailerons drop because of the weight of the control surface and the use of coreless servos. When the radio is turned on the ailerons will come up to where they are supposed to be.

Biplane Murphy 07-17-2008 04:44 AM

Still here....hiding inside due to temperatures of 103-110+ degrees....:eek:

Learn something everyday, just figured they used the same servos I do, but just larger. Never heard of those.

Percyflyer 07-17-2008 03:08 PM

Yep, I only use digital high torque coreless metal geared servos on my big stuff. 1 servo on each surface. The security is worth it. My 1/3 scale pup, like the one crashing on my website, carried 9 servos.

Who was the cowardly Fokker(maybe Albatros) pilot that shot up my Sopwith Tripe while it was stuck in the tree? HAHA

Storm last night blew the tripe out of the tree. Found it this morning, top wing between the rails of railroad and fuselage about 4 foot from rails. Missing battery, one servo, landing gear, and pilot. The plane must have traveled through about 4 trees to make it clear out of the woods. Found servo and pilot in the rock next to the fuselage. Nothing was found between fuselage and the tree it was stuck in. Landing gear and batttey was at the edge of the woods about 20 feet off line between tree and fuselage, about 30 feet from fuselage. It must have taken quite a trip to the ground.

7car7 07-22-2008 02:51 PM

Oh wow, what a shame! I hate to see someones hard work like that. Now you get to build a new one, right? :tc:

Biplane Murphy 07-22-2008 03:05 PM

Dang...That is quite a bit of battle damage....:{

WWI Ace 07-22-2008 06:00 PM

I really hated to see that happen!! I was hoping to shoot it down myself!! Ha ha!! Sorry about your plane!! Steve
