I'm building a StevensAero SQuiRT and have a buddy box setup so I'm hoping to get her some signficant air time in the not-too-distant future. She'll probably be out-flying me this time next year... 'hope so anyway.
She's a sweety all right, and our newist Mullet Marauder!!! bub, steve

she counts 100 times in my opinion, without going into details about that
but i wasnt sure if it counted for this thread.
i have gotten her to fly simulator several times, and i dont thnik she enjoys it too much, but at least i talked her into flying simulator so many times that she takes off, keeps them airborne, and can even land them with some instructions about when to drop throttle, right altitude etc etc.
anyway, i offered her to lend any of my aircrafts, but shes too afraid to crash. even the small ones.
she tried the flybaby, but i think that counts more as a toy than a model. anyway, she flew it great. and even the flybaby seemed a lot more fun in real life than what the simulator was, so maybe i get her to start one day.
i also tried to talk her into spicing up the extra, as the color scheme is quite dull. shes great with a pencil, but it turned out that the airbrush wasnt her, so today the extra is completely white, and waiting for me to come up with some "great" ideas for a nice, yet simple, color scheme.

Good for you Brinnaaa, Team sports build character and leadership skills. You'll have a good time with it.

Bill,. you keep the horses from drowning by making them wear speedos. Even a horse wouldn't be caught dead wearing those swim suits.

By the way -- I envy the size of your airplane. The largest one I have is 51"... :o

The bed is 6ft wide, it's great for watching TV online, you can really sloth out on it, you can smell the mahogany as well, almost like being in the jungle

I know one thing, you sure wouldnt want to put a glow plane on the bed and have it drip slime all over that nice bed spread.

The wood prop was the biggest they had at the time, have now got an APC copy on it 18x12 & it really needs a 19x12.
Glow fuel...had far worse on the bed......


We got kids

I also put larger wheels on my small stuff for the grass. The stock wheels just don't do it. I also do like tail draggers but not that darn skid; I always add a stearable wheel back there. Nothing fancy just a bent piece of wire glued to the rudder. I sometimes run the wire through the skid for extra support.
The original wheels were 2.5 inch, foam. We now have 3.5 rubber, bit more weight but with a thrust to weight ratio of 1:1.38 should be fine
Also have another motor that he reckons will be perfect in it, hopefully some more power...need to be able to carry a 279g panasonic HD video cam+eagletree E-logger+OSD+GPS..now this should be fun.

The trouble is the place where we fly from is a football pitch, the ground is SOAKING due the the amount of days rain we have been suffering here, add to that the scars from football boots & it's a recipe for disaster.

FRANNY:

Love that stearman, what a corker. Tell us more about what you running in her?

Hi have her fly one of those round planes, with the edge folded up, that will give her a lot of stick time, and she wont be afraid to crash it, because its just a cheapy foamy here is one of our Chino RC Renegades Pilots with his
