As usual the Tulsa Gluedobbers put on a great event with their 60th annual Heatwave In The Heartland. Here are just a few of the highlights that I was able to capture.
We loaded up and went to one of our local R/C fly-ins yesterday at the Bartlesville Falcons Model Air Park in Copan Ok. It was their annual big bird fly-in and there was a very respectable turnout of planes, pilots and fans of the hobby. You can check out some still shots I took by clicking this link below.
After some motor problems a few weeks ago Jeff had to put a new tail wheel on his pulse and this is the first flight since the change. At the end of this video you get to see Jeff make one sweet dead-stick landing made on Monroe’s High-wing Trainer.
Jeff and I both bought one of these at the Hobby Lobby Black Friday sale way back in November. We got really good deals on them but they just kind of got set aside for a while. I have to say this is a fun plane to fly and its my first shot at a ducted fan. (all stock HL gear and a 2250 3cell LiPo) On the second flight with the Soarjet I actually sat down to fly. It’s going to be a great lazy day flier.
This kid is my huckin’ hero!
This video documents the maiden of the Blue Baby 42″ monobloc with the KFm3 airfoil. Its powered with an e-flite 450 pnp, 10x5e prop (pulled from my mini pulse when I upgraded) a 20 amp ESC from Heads Up RC and various servos in the 9 gram range that I had laying around. Now that I know it flies and handles the wind well it will get a snazzy new paint job. It also needs some upgraded landing gear I don’t think I like the “instant retracts” concept at this point.
