We had some great fun in April 2006 and are ready for a great flying summer.


March 2006

OK, so after a month of flying the scale P-51 Miss America I finally started assembly of a Fun Force P-51 profile Mustang. It took me about twenty hours being that I have not done any model building for thirty years now and my eyes aren't what they used to be. I also needed to fabricate a good mounting system for the 400 series electric motor that I was using in my Miss America so that took some time and I did not feel that the Control horns were sufficient so I installed larger ones with 1/16 plywood reinforcement under them. In the end it turned out very satisfactory. Now for the flying story, well sure enough I did it, just what I always thought I would never do - I set up the ailerons backwards so when my friend Eric launched my new bird it did something like a unexpected roll and thumped into a muddy field. Fortunately the soft mud did no damage except that the prop broke and that was easily fixed and then we had to program my transmitter to reverse the action of my aileron servo. Ok so that being fixed we tried it again and sure enough it flew although I found that it was very sensitive but I soon fixed that with longer control horns and some end point adjustments.

Now I have had about seven flights on it in three days and I am really liking this model. With it's wider wing cord if handles very nicely and lands really well.

Below are photos of Eric's Edge 540 and his Zaggi and my new P-51 profile Mustang on it's first day out.
