telecommunicatioinsd: Thanks Glenn, Hey, I think you are ready to try a twin engine project out.
I know your voyager is a "twin" but it doesn't count because A, you have
one engine behind the other, and B, it is electric. It indeed is a
challange, but I know you could handle it just fine... All kidding aside
Glenn about your beautiful voyager, you might think about it first "before"
you build the "X Prize" model next.....
telecommunicatioinsd: The model has taken me 2 years to complete necessary engineering changes to
get it in the air off of a paved runway. Completely rebuilt the landing
gear and used "Dave Brown" 3 1/2 inch "Lite" Wheels to stabilize the model.
Rebuilt and installed 2 O.S. 40SF engines using 300cc gas tanks. The video
was shot by my wife at our club field called the Greater Cincinnati Radio
Control Club near Hamilton Ohio. Will work on putting on the cowls. CG
should be at 110mm and about 20% flaps. Smooth Landings.
Alex Shone: Nice airfield u guys got there!
telecommunicatioinsd: Dear david79424 Thank you for your kind words. The model has been a real
challange to say the least. Too many modifications to mention here. If you
go to RC Universe in the forums section, and punch in CMP DeHavilland
Mosquito, you can read about everything I went through to get her in the
air. My post started on page 27. It is post 670, I believe where I started
talking about my model and my experiances. You should see her fly with the
cowls on it now. It goes another 15 mph in the air.
Glenn Dunlap: nice Dave, engines sound synced up and blazin!
telecommunicatioinsd: Dear CarreraGTSCS, Yes, RCU has tons of info on the CMP Mosquito, including
many postings I added about all of the things I had done to get mine in the
air. Yes, it flys real well with electric power. Many postings about that
too. Just punch in "CMP Mosquito" in the forum section of RC universe, and
you will see everything you would want to know about this model. Thanks so
much for your comments. I plan on getting another video up soon with it
flying with the cowls on.
david79424: I just have to say that was some of the best rc pilot skills I've seen to
date. The Mosquito is not an easy rc model to fly or build. A right
telecommunicatioinsd: @Smokyash Thanks so much. We have been writing back and forth through RC
universe, and I was so happy to see you got your model in the air. Believe
it or not, this is the best landing I have had with the model and have not
duplicated it since. I just pulled back at the right time and there it was
in the video. I am working on the issue of why the model just drops out of
the air. Thanks for watching.. David
telecommunicatioinsd: @shoney1102 Thank you so much for your comments. We are indeed very
fortunate to have such a nice flying field. Since this posted 2 years ago
we have added a U-control circle, and more trees and and landscaping, and
developed a north / south runway in the grass on the west side of the paved
runway. We have a crew of volunteers and leaders that are dedicated to
keeping the flying field nice. They are really great bunch of guys.
Smokyash: WOW! nice smooth flying! a definate ACE with this model. and Kudo's to your
video operator for a nice smooth video. a pleasure to watch.
