Welp, Lipo, and motor are on their way. should come in about 2 weeks to that should give me enough time to get myself out of overdraw lol (only like 20 or 30 bucks) and buy the slow-stick and epoxy from tower Hobbies. 1 step closer to crashing that plane! Woot!

Sounds good.....but the commute from Moorpark to here is gonna be a treat

Hey....trying to learn a bit of aerodynamics here....would you please explain what you know about wing tip washout and how it effects the plane's turning? Wondering if my L-19 would benefit from this mod.....thanks!

ehh... wing tip washout... now yer just talking nonsense...LOL,

Less Air under wing means less stability... I think....LOL

a bend in the tips means that it will get air when it normally would tipstall, thats about all I know...,

How about putting a bigger motor on it and putting side force generators...hahaha

Well, ya done it now, Al........Robbie want's a Stryker and there's no stopping him! hehe
They always told us that one toke "could" hook you for life in school.....pot=Stryker in this instance though and he's got it bad.

We had a grand time, thanks for letting me at the sticks of your big-thin bipe Al, sure is a joy to fly.
My scratchbuilt L-19 Bird Dog is debugged and is now part of my regular rotation, put it through 3-4 batteries without any trouble (well, sep it's kinda slow....hmmm, yeah sloooowwwww) so thanks goes out again to all who helped with advise on power and flight dynamics The addition of a few degrees washout in the wingtips settled nearly all of it's darty habits.....cool.
I pulled that mis-be-haven motor from my SS when we got home and it did have a separated winding right at the stator. Kinda sad as that was the very first motor I bought for my then-new Slow Stick way back in January when I began this epic adventure into RC flight.
BUT OH WELL........I gots more

What a bit-chin way to start our day!

I like those Strykers but those big slow 3d ers like my Byp Yak are more suited to an old pilots reflexes. Hey Steve, you wanna pass on your rebuilt Stryker to a young gun with a need for speed? I know we need the servos for Daniels and it'll prob. take a little while for him to earn the esc and the motor. Or better still Ray , so he can learn some sweat equity and scratch building skill ,tell him the foamy cut out I have that needs some shaping and the fins that are drawn on black depron are already his he just has to finish it. And untill it's ready he's welcome to fly James's when he comes out with you.

Meaning of Life
[edit] Buddhist views

One of the central views in Buddhism is a nondual worldview, in which subject and object are the same, and the sense of doer-ship is illusionary. On this account, the meaning of life is to become ENLIGHTENED as to the nature and oneness of the universe. According to the scriptures, the Buddha taught that in life there exists Dukkha, which is in essence sorrow/suffering, that is caused by desire and it can be brought to cessation by following the Noble Eightfold Path.


See Grasshopper, I was right Again

lol yeah...the ride out to chino is a Little excessive for the weekend excursion. Not bad with my bike but once in a blue moon with my truck with todays gas prices. GAH!....

unless i can find a way to partially dissassemble my plane and put it into the bags that i have. And i mean by ways of easy. maybe i coudl create a simple lock/hinge on the fuselage, and the wings split apart with a locking-linkage.......

Steve! Start thinking! lol you're good at jerryrigging stuff it seems! I can give you the exact dimensions and volume of my bags.

A 5' x 18' black plasic gun case would work huh Steve.Could even carry a rifle in it. Stevve supposedly ordered a 34" w s plane that went into an aluminum case. But they sent sumpin else. Chellie I don't know about "THE NOBLE 8 FOLD PATH" But it sounds like a shorter race than the 12 step program I keep falling out of. LOL

That was a capitol idea, Al check the pics!
Robbie got right out to the garage and started cuttin' foam, using a hot wire type cutting unit from Micheal's (love that 50% off coupon!). He went on to start sanding the rest to shape and he's lovin' it. He's seen me scratch out more than a few planes (when you're broke-outta work for months at a time ya learn to use what's around! hehe) but this time he has something HE wants and is motivated to make it happen. Makes me proud to see him do this, he's a good kid.
We'll be out at the fairgrounds around 7 or so......along with our other flyers we'll be bringing his project.....so's he can present it for inspection and approval

see ya in the morning,
Ray
