Pure genius how you figured your CofG!!!!!!!Steve

Thank you, the frame square I used even has the measurement marked on the inside so it worked great. My Camel has the COG listed on the bottom wing. I used the square on it and got a direct read for the COG on the top wing. Then by using the balancing tool with the color tape I do not have to measure and mark the COG on the plane.

I really like how you clipped the trailing edge of the wingtips, it's a great touch!

Don't need Palmalive. These hands only cost a small downpayment and income for the rest of my life.


I cut the wing tips to match the tripehound.

HAppy Fathers Day
 
Yes Happy Fathers Day to all my WWI buds here at Wattflyer! :D I got a slightly used Spektrum DX6i for Fathers day. :D:) I finally broke into 2.4 G. :) Now it'll just cost me a fortune to convert all my other stuff :eek: ....nah.. I'll still keep my 72 mhz stuff for now. :tc: Marty

Okay Degreen finally got to me!! Today I started a Manzanolaser Nieuport 11 designed by Peter Rake. I was gonna do my 1/8 Aerodrome tripe but I need some good wood for the spars. I have all the wings and horizontal stab and elevator built up and the front of the cowl drying overnight. It's about a 36"ws plane. Hope to get the fuse and rudder done tomorrow. Gonna use small 4.3 gram servos in it to keep it light. Haven't decided on a color scheme yet. How 'bout some suggestions fellows? I don't have much reference material on this plane. Steve

dbcisco 06-28-2009 06:13 AM

Here's some Nieuport 11 shcemes:

Sensing that the gauntlet has been thrown down, scalercflyer rises to fill the gap in information on the N11 for WWI Ace. :eek::D:) Marty

Here's another interpretation of Navarre's red (debated) Nieuport.

I've contacted Callies Graphics about some decals for the Nieuport. I just like the way she makes them. She does a great job and the prices are very fair. Steve

WWI Ace 06-30-2009 06:13 PM

She charged me $15 which included shipping for decals for the tops and bottoms of wings, side, and rudder. She makes them out of .002" thick vinyl and you can even clear coat over them if you want. She will do originals or resize anything she already does. Her website is www.callie-graphics.com if anybody wants to check her work out. Steve

Yesterday was my B'day, and I got a new WWI DVD - Hell's Angels. Produced by Howard Hughes. Can't wait to watch it, should be fun.

WWI Ace 07-07-2009 12:14 AM

Cool 7car7!!! I have my Nieuport 11 pretty much all framed up guys. Just gotta do some sanding and bend a couple more pieces of wire. Will post pics when I get it so I can mock it up "in the bones". I'm gonna use a Eflite 400 outrunner in it. Steve

7car7 07-07-2009 03:28 PM

I don't think I spotted a build thread on that Nieuport yet!

WWI Ace 07-08-2009 12:03 AM

I'm not good enough to do actual build threads and when I build I get so carried away that I wouldn't remember to take pics anyway!! You'll see pics of the "bones" shortly!! Steve

I thought this crew might appreciate the video at this link:

I'd love to try that.:tc:

Thanks, very cool video!!

DVIII video
 
Sweeeet video! :D Sounds like a rotary engine since he keeps blipping the throttle. I may just build my Ben Buckle DVIII kit this winter (Steve where are you?). :) Or I may scratch build one (I have many sets of plans with all different size wingspans up to 69"). How'd you like that thing sneaking up on your Camel's tail Don? :eek::D Kinda puts the wind up your tail, Eh? :eek::D:D Marty

scalercflyer 07-08-2009 03:25 AM

Percy's friends
 
Hey Boys! Why do I see only 1 friend listed for Percyflyer? That goes for all of us WWI nuts here! We're all WWI aviation Comrades and Friends! :mad: Let's get cracking and sign up! No excuses! :eek::D:) Marty

I think you should send everyone the color pages from the Osprey series. Might give people some ideas.:D

My Dr.1 is going to be black with the "God of Wind" ala Jacobs. Gotta get the table back from the wife to work on it some more.:(

He flys just like I do, low and down the runway. I don't quite get his landings, not 3 point like mine(2 wheels and nose). LOL So many nice WW1 planes to model. The DVII will probably have to wait. I have the plans drawn for a Junkers D1.
