I don't know of anyone that has any of the Lanier WWI planes. If you can find out what they weigh, you can compare that to the specs on the Eflite 400. If I understand correctly you need about 80watts a pound to fly scale and 100watts plus per pound to fly aerobatics. Hope it helps Buckshot.Steve.

I wish.... Martin is the one who knows so very much!!!!!..... I just know I like the WW1 planes, and enjoy flying them.....


Oh yeah.... I like about 200+ watts per pound for scale flight.:D:Q;-)
Just kidding..... about the scale flight part that is....

Steve.... I think I am shipping out a Male springer spaniel pup to Texas pretty soon....haven't worked out all the details yet, but it looks like the pup will be a fellow "Texican"...:)

I don't know, I watch these kinds of film with very low expectations regarding the script and historical accuracy, not that my knowledge of the era is expert. I really liked "Pearl Harbor" and "FLYBOYS" for the flying scenes but the stories were light. I liked "FLYBOYS" more. Seemed like they tried a bit harder to get it right.

I just like all the Flying Scenes...... plot is almost not even necessary....

well gang, I'm watching the movie for it's entertainment and the planes. The politics will likely be hollywoodized anyway to better sell the movie.I don't think hollywood ever made 30million on a documentry.Probably never will.So,they need jazz,politics, villan,hero,fair maidens to rescue and somewhere they will shove in some kind of animal to try and make the movie seem more real.That's hollywood and that's what makes money , but I look forward to seeing the movie just the same.

I'm still waiting to get a price on the Arizona Models kit. He's still checking to see if he has a cowl for it. I guess he isn't going to give me a price on cutting the kit till he finds it. I'm asking about a .40 size Fokker tripe. Steve.

Franny 10-25-2007 12:47 AM

Hey, Steve? AerodromeRC has a .40 size DRI; well AXI 2826 size...

Franny

Franny 10-25-2007 01:24 AM

You too Don!

Indoor facility
 
Here is a short video of our new flying facility. I'm looking forward to being nice and warm this winter as we fly. Just had to share!!!! :D BTW, I'm really mad about the RB movie not having a release date yet for the USA!!! :mad: Man, do I need to see that movie BAD!!!! Martin

scalercflyer 10-25-2007 02:32 AM

No Fear
 
Have no fear my Friends! :D I will be glad to attest to the authenticity of the RB film (when I see it)! BTW, Mike, Steve, Murph, Don, Franny and all, I too am only interested in the flying scenes. I have enjoyed for many years the combat flying in the BLUE MAX and now in FLYBOYS. I must admit though, that I am annoyed when a Tripe does a 90 degree turn behind a tree at ground level and then climbs like a WWII fighter! :roll: But you have to admit, it sure gives you the flavor of WWI aerial combat. ;-) Long Live WWI model aviation! Martin

Don the Builder
 
Don, you echo my thoughts and beliefs exactly! I too love all aspects of building and flying in this wonderful hobby. It's a darn shame we all couldn't get together and fly in the war choked skies. Oh Well, perhaps someday... Martin

That looks like a great Indoor site..... no wind... ever......or rain or snow or cold.........:)

The shouldn't be putting trailers out for movies this early......waiting forever is not going to be fun.:mad:

WWI Ace 10-25-2007 03:12 AM

Thanks Franny! I know Aerodrome has a .40 size tripe kit but I got something special for my birthday to go in a glow plane. I tried again tonight to figure out what's wrong with either my computer or camera. For some reason it is locked and won't let my memory card download. I'll keep trying though and hopefully get some tripe pics posted. Steve.

Those Arizona kits look cool...I was eyeing them a while back.....and the Proctor kits as well.....

http://www.proctor-enterprises.com/p...vk/dr1/dr1.htm

I have the perfect .70 4-stroke for that one..... It was designed around the specific engine I have...... Maybe in the springtime I'll have the time and energy to do that one.....

50+AirYears 10-25-2007 05:39 PM

Just got the club's newsletter. The builder of the Hannover that I posted the pics of won 1st place at the Dawn Patrol get together at Wright-Patterson AFB.

Don't know if he''l know how to put together the Balsa USA kit he won. As long as I've known him, he's always drawn up his own plans, or occassionaly used someone elses plans.

Quick correction. The plane is a Hannover CL-2, not CL-12 like I posted originally. Still a prize winner and a great model.

WWI Ace 10-26-2007 07:05 PM

Your friend will feel like he's "cheating" by already having cut parts!!! Steve.

WWI Ace 10-27-2007 04:21 AM

Anybody got any plans for a .40 sized 50 1/2"ws Sopwith tripe? Steve.

I like the sound of that.:)

I wish I could help with the plans, but have no Idea where to find those at....:(

scalercflyer 10-27-2007 06:16 AM

Sopwith tripe
 
Hey Steve! Did you forget to ask me? ???? I have a nice set of PR plans (and the build article) for a 45" WS tripehound. :) All you have to do is say so Buddy and they are yours! :D Martin

WWI Ace 10-27-2007 07:42 PM

Actually Martin and Murph I was being a little sarcastic!! I have purchased a set of .40 sized tripehound plans that I should get within the week. I gotta find somewhere to copy them so you can both also have a set!! Can't keep 'em all to myself can I? Steve.

Messing with me
 
Don't make me come down there Steve! You're messing with me! Martin

WWI Ace 10-28-2007 02:45 AM

And we do!!!

WWI Ace 10-30-2007 02:48 AM

Okay guys!!! I'm taking the little tripe to work tomorrow and a friend of mine is going to take a couple of pics for me. Then he'll email to me so I can save 'em and hopefully post 'em for you guys to see. It's the only way I can think of to get them on here since I can't figure out what's wrong with my camera. Wish me luck!!! And if I get them posted your not allowed to make fun of my poor building skills!!!! Steve

Historically aacurate
 
I'm shocked at you Guys! :eek: I would only be offering my opinion on the tripes historical accuracy! ;-):D That's all! :rolleyes: Steve, don't listen to Murph! You know how those pattern pilots like to start trouble! :p Martin

Who Me?.........:D

WWI Ace 10-30-2007 07:04 PM

I think your both trouble!!! Hopefully he will send the pics to me this evening. It was a big hit at work though! They loved it!! Of course they know nothing about planes. The real test will be you two!!!! Steve.

WWI Ace 10-31-2007 12:20 AM

False alarm!! It will be tomorrow night before he sends the pics. He left his camera in his girl friends car. She lives 60 miles away!!! Oh well, at least we have them . Steve.

scalercflyer 10-31-2007 01:00 AM

Excuse
 
Yeah Right! :D Oh Fellows I can't post till tomorrow :rolleyes:...... sorta sounds like the check's in the mail.... etc. What do you think Murph?

WWI Ace 10-31-2007 03:00 AM

No really!! The check IS in the mail!!! The only problem is I sent the Water Dept. the gas bill, the bank the water bill, etc.etc.etc.........Steve.

Yeah.... That's what the guy in Texas said to me about the Puppy he wanted to "Buy".......
Luckily I figured out he was not in Texas, and was in reality a Nigerian Scammer.......
I am amazed that someone would track down a classified ad in a newspaper, and conduct a scam trying to defraud someone trying to sell a puppy.:mad:
Luckily I became suspicious and I tracked his E-mail/IP address...Lagos, Nigeria.....He won't get anything from me (except his info forwarded to the FBI or Interpol..:<:)



Anyway.....Can't wait to see the photos of your sweet Tripe, Steve!!!!!:)

WWI Ace 11-01-2007 01:03 AM

I hate people like that!!! Why are people that greedy? I cannot stand any kind of thief!!! Anyway, talked to the guy at work today and he said he might get the pics to me tonight. He said, "Don't worry. The pictures are in my camera!!!" I tried to tell him that he didn't understand how hard you guys were riding me about this. Steve.

WWI Ace 11-01-2007 01:04 AM

You guys goin' trick or treatin'?

Biplane Murphy 11-01-2007 01:16 AM

No Trick or Treating for me.....No Kids.......only Dogs..... So I'll be spending a relaxing evening at home with the pooches.:)

FlyingMonkey 11-01-2007 02:33 AM
