Hi Chellie,

Those plans are for the little Dare DR.I in my avatar actually. I love to use old plans like wall paper! To the left are the plans for my Goldberg 1/2A Blazer.

So the speakers are actually little Nanostat cube speakers mounted to the wall but the wiring is behind the wall. Finding them after the drywall went up was fun... I just uploaded new photos of the finished basement to my site. We went nuts... Full projection theater system, salt water reef tank, craft room, workout room the works! I'm soooo glad it is all done.

Maybe we can have some of the neighborhood kids over for a few airplane building sessions! Hook 'em while they're young!

It is a part of Colorado history, and something which isn't particularly well-known. The only reason I would build a scale plane is to enjoy a part of history, otherwise I'll stick to the helicopters and the 3D and pattern planes.

Post More On Eaglerock

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexander_Aircraft_Company

Eaglerock helped Mooney get started in Kerrville TX (I've been there).

A woman pilot also recreated a Eaglerock monoplane in 2006.

There's a Eagle rock plane on display in the SEATAC airport (been there too).

-

Where have I been? Parents from IN; born in FL; raised in TX; military all over (no overseas, I did volunteer; my dad was military too); back to IN with my parents... still here but want to go back to WA (not Seattle, too damp) where I was stationed. WA is one of the few states that has no state income tax! IN is terrible with their government & taxation but I'm stuck for now. Hmmm... haven't been on the east coast yet.

Oh, Jasmine, I've been to CO too, Denver area USAF Accounting & Finance Center. I was not there long since this was only a temporary assignment & I was too busy to see much but what I did see was nice.

You Have Great Taste Chris That is a very very nice looking biplane, I like it because the fuselage is longer than the Eagle and the Ultimate, Soooo, My Goal, is to make it a little like the Ultimate, with both wings swept back, rounded off wings and control surfaces, longer fuselage, a boxed cowl nose, I want to take the best of what each plane has to offer and make one with the best of all 3, i Know, tall order, but i can try Take care, Chellie

Thanks Guys, (Guy and Gal).

If I were to modify the Skybolt design, I would definately significantly increase the size of tail control surfaces, and also increase the ailerons too.

It will never 3D in a stock form. Too Heavy, and not enough power from the engine to hover and punch out vertically.

However, an electric foam version would do nicely with increased surfaces....

Chellie, put me on the list for your Super Eagle Ultimate Skybolt Combination Creation !!

I Sure will Chris I have the foam, prop, carbon fiber, etc on order for it, the mail is really slow, due to the holidays, funny thing is that I bought some Revlon Colorstay Lipcolor on Ebay, the seller is in the UK, and I got my lip color, before my foam and parts have got to me, and i ordered the airplane stuff, before the lipcolor go figure Thank you for the suggestions Chris, I will make all the control surfaces much bigger, thats for sure Take care, Chellie

hmm Biker Chic, tatoos, bandana and builds and flys R/C planes . I don't think I ever saw your profile on E Harmoney . com. My problem with the Click wasn't the ESC it was the sticky trainer sw. on my old Eclipse 7 Tx. Steve took it for a flight today that had us watching in awe. Chellie make your bi-plane look like this

Those are some nice profile planes AL I was looking for a more conventional style of plane like the ultimate, Eagle and i think the GP Super Sport with some changes will look and fly great, how about 4" wide ailerons or bigger and a bigger rudder and elevator, with 45 degree movement it will have a full fuselage body on it, My foam and stuff i ordered sure is taking its sweet time getting here I want to get started on this Giant Take care, Chellie

Hmmmmm E Harmony.com ,I will have to check it out
Naaa, Guys just take up to much of my Rc Building and flying time away from me
