Well I won't be doing a Projeti but something else more unique.
It's a concept that was drawn up by a guy on RCG but never built by anyone so I'll have to work out all the little details that get me into trouble.
And it will be the 2nd plane of it's kind I ever built.

The 1st didn't fly and by the time I figured my stupid mistake I had already stripped the gear out of it.
I had fun throwing it around the yard though. It amazed me that the plane glide so nice with it CG having to be so far off without the gear.

Looking forwards to your unique build Frank, Take care, Chellie

FlyingMonkey 09-24-2008 01:13 PM

I thought it was that if you had started a build BEFORE the start of the contest, you had to send a photo of your progress to prove that it wasn't very far along yet. Am I wrong about that?

I was still thinking of entering. I know what I want to build but I haven't lifted a finger to start it yet.

FlyingMonkey 09-24-2008 04:07 PM

ah.. what do I know, did you see MY entries? :D

Wrench66 09-24-2008 04:19 PM

OK...I'll just post up a build thread and see what they say :roll:;-)

pburt1975 09-24-2008 04:40 PM

Muroc, if your still viewing this thread, Im assuming from the chatter that its still ok to enter this contest? I need a spark to get me fired back into RC flight, this contest sounds like a great motivation tool (outside of 3 kids asking me when Im building again).

Whats the word:D

Pburt, Muroc took care of the last contest and I, in a weak moment, volunteered to be the CD on this one. So I get all the complaints.????:tc: You can't let those kids down, so, as they say in the movies. "Show me the plane." :tc:



All you need to do to enter the contest now is just start building. Then post a link to your build thread in this thread. You can start building up to the last day of the contest, if you can build and fly a plane in one day.:<::tc:

The date of September 12 was set as the date to enter any build that was already started. Since we are past that date, you can't enter any build that was already being built, so that date has no meaning now.

You can enter as many builds as you wish, as long as they are finished and flown by the last day of 2008.

So there are over three months to get your beauty built and flown.

I have really enjoyed following the builds already under construction. Some have already been flown, but it certainly not too late to get in on the fun.

TDisaster 09-24-2008 05:58 PM

I'll start mine as soon as I get my buttercup finished up :). Was gonna use a .020, but decided on a cheapie little out runner. :D

Thanks RC, looks like I'll be starting up some plans tonight then :D

Jim
I read the above post # 64 - twice - and my head ain't stopped hurting.

Some down in the scratchbuilt thread suggested I should enter my latest OD in this project. However, I published a shot of its mostly completed woodwork on 08-07-2008, post # 486 in 'show us your scratchbuilts'

Does that rule this one out, or what?

Regards

Dereck

I'm sorry Dereck, but we had to have a cutoff date for builds already in work. There were one or two folks that had just started a build a few days before we got the rules posted, so we allowed entries up to the 12th. Your build was quite far along, since it was already framed up in early August.

I hope you will start something else, since there are over three months left in the contest.

Dereck 09-25-2008 02:48 PM

Cheers Jim - sounds reasonable to me.

A new design? You haven't seen my 'doodles' pile ...:eek: You want the 50" 4S aerobatic sportster, of the 3S shoulder wing aerobatic, or maybe its tailless cousion? What about the 36" span Ford Flivver, or 60" Watkinson Dingbat (a what? you might well ask!) The latest itteration of my long-running 'Bit' series tailless, the 'Bit o'Quiet'

All I need now is some spare time! Maybe I'll make next year's comp by really paying attention - but am looking forward to seeing this year's entrants.

Regards

Dereck

Rabbitcreekok 09-25-2008 04:29 PM

I would love to see the Ford Flivver. You don't see it much.

starcad 09-26-2008 02:28 AM

Rabbitcreekok, so that means if I haven't started a build yet, then I can still enter by starting a build? I'm rubbing my head -:)

Thats correct starcad. You can enter as many builds as you wish and can enter up until the end of the contest time period. The entries must be completed and flown by the closing date of the contest. And you should use a separate build thread for each build.

And be careful about rubbing your head with CA on your fingers. It could cause problems.:eek::tc:

#2 contest warbird
 
Please visit my new build at http://www.wattflyer.com/forums/show...d=1#post481285 .
It's a Supermarine Spitfire Mk24 in profile flat wing style, FFF construction.

Thanks and good luck everyone!

---Ray

starcad 09-26-2008 01:29 PM

Kool! Thanks Guys. Maybe this will get me back into 'Area 51' and get it organized. With the summers around here it's so hot you really don't want to build. However, now that things are finally cooling off, it's time to dust off the building board and have some fun. I'll post later this weekend and get it started.
