September Fest

Show "N" Tell

 

April 2008 Meeting

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

     John Schenck's Fabulous gas powered Predator with a 26 cc motor.  John did a really nice job installing all the latest high tech equipment including a governor that gets it's signal from the coil.  It also has a dual voltage regulator with 6 volts for the servos and 5.1 volts for the tail gyro.  It has an aluminum engine stabilization kit installed to keep the motor from twisting in violent maneuvers.  (If the engine twists it can cause the gears to slip and break) 

 

     John has become a very good flyer and after the meeting he did an impressive demo of flying inverted just inches off the ground.

 

      I have put John in the Metro Area R/C Flying's Indoor Electric Helicopter "Hall Of Fame"

 

April 2008 Meeting

This is the last time you will see John's Heli right side up!

Here is John's Heli sitting stable just inches above the floor.

The Heli was stable enough that I was able to get around and get this difficult shot of both John and his Heli together.

Ed Jelinek built several of these crash resistant 3-D airplanes.  He also built one for Doug Smith shown on the left.  Ed did a really nice job on the planes.

Galen Lilethourup with yet another great scale plane.  This is a BW-830 Pitcairn Gyrocopter, with a scratch built radial engine. Bob English brought his new profile Yak 55 with a Saito 125 installed in it.  Bob also has super powerful Hitec Digital servos.  (I wish I had a plane like this) Rich Eich brought a new Ikarus Shock Flyer and Tom test flew it after the meeting. Tom Egbert is building a control line plane powered by a super powerful .40.  Tom started planning to build this plane 50 years ago and is now fulfiling that plan.
