Wife took these this morning. She says I am nuts. It is snowing but no wind. Snow was too soft to take off and land on the skis.

Yes, it had been a couple of days sence I had flown. Last time I flew temp was 13 so today was nice. Now my shakes are gone, maybe the snakes will be not be in my bed tonight. LOL

Need larger skis? You know, those bird houses sure seem like they would be in the way of flying.

79CJ 02-10-2010 05:15 PM

For sure I would be smacking into one of those birdhouses sooner rather than later!

Biplane Murphy 02-10-2010 05:44 PM

I Think the Birdhouses are for Pylon Racing.

degreen60 02-10-2010 09:58 PM

The open area is to the right and beyond the bird houses. If you fly over the birds houses going left you have to turn right or climb in a hurry, you can not see the trees in the picture. If your low and fly this side of the bird houses you have to land in a hurry or you will be in the trees.

Show off!
 
De you're just a show off trying to impress us with your piloting skills! :eek::D:rolleyes::cool: Pay attention Boys, you just might learn something! :) Marty

I can teach you how to get planes out of trees. LOL My cousin told me he used a 22 rifle to shoot limbs off to get planes out. My piloting skills are great at dumping my landing into the tall grass beyond the bird houses. If for some reason when landing toward the birds houses I come in too high I have to land under the trees, no going around when landing it that direction.

Took it back out this morning, snow is not as fluffy. Did ROS ok. Only problem is the wind blew hard and I only have a small place where the snow has not blown thin enough for grass to stick through to take off from. I can land anywhere but the little blades of grass turn the plane on takeoff and stop it. Today has no wind but cold, 11 degrees. Good thing I fly close to the house. Makes it easy to keep batteries and me warm. LOL

Hey guys, I am looking for information on an obscure Fokker.....I believe it's a V 17 or something like that, I understand it was a shoulder wing plane, but I could be wrong, as I have only one very poor photo...anyone ever heard about it?
Hopefully it will be my next WW1 project.

Was it a Junker-Fokker aircraft CL 1 ? That was a low wing two seater, with no external bracing.

scalercflyer 02-20-2010 08:57 PM

Fokker V17
 
Here you go Ron....

BTW, reference material on this plane is hard to find. Kinda rare aircraft. Marty

The V.17 was an experimental monoplane which appears to be a D.VIII converted from a parasol to a mid fuselage wing attatchment. The wing sillouette is along the lines of a D.VIII.

Ron 02-21-2010 02:24 AM

Marty...DB... thanks...that's the one....DB's sketches/pictures are a close match to what I have on hand, so I am pretty much convinced that the wing was mid fuselage, not placed on the top fuselage longeron like the one in the movie Marty sent....BUT they both appear to be a D V1 fuselage and tail group......very close to the EV/ D V111, so if I was to use the EV fuselage, likely no one would know the difference, since not too many guys have actually seen a V 17...........;) I'm thinking the movie just may be a V 20...but I can't confirm that.
Think I'll do it in 22 1/2% size, since I just happen to have plans drawn up for 6 of the Fokker series of planes in this size.
Now I need to spend the spring/summer collecting bits and pieces for it...... well actually not all..I have the wing framed up from an earlier try..I just couldn't find where the wing was mounted for sure, so I decided to wait a while, and in the mean time built the tri-plane. :D

79CJ 02-22-2010 07:55 PM

Marty - have you spilled the beans on your next plane? I've missed it if you have. That is unless the post about what it is was as hard to see as this mystery plane supposedly is... :D

Ryan Flyer 02-22-2010 08:03 PM

Just started Building a foam triplane. My avro flew so well I though I would try something else. I am using ff plans with a 12in ws and enlarging them 2.5x to about 30in.
Also working on a 40in ws camel in balsa.

40" Camel sounds nice! I want to build one of those someday.

I have a foam Tripehound that Hillbilly made for me, and it flies grrrrreat!!

OK......Marty's next plane.

Luke Skywalker's X-Wing with 4 turbine motors, moving S-Foils, working lasers and retractable landing gear.

I was just flying a Fokker V.17 in FMS!:$
Yes, the most undeservedly maligned flight sim in history has a model of the Fokker V.17! :D:D:D

Here is my foam scratch built Tripe hound. It flys great. I cheated and used GWS Tiger Moth wings.
