Slow Club Wednesday Flying Session

Clowns rule! Clowns can STUNT too!
Sporthawk-8 flights! Engine broken in now. But-some tank problems to straighten out. Changed the tank today. And drilled a few extra holes in the fuselage so that the tank will be adjustable at the field. The power train and the flight characteristics are very promising. But I still have some engine run trimming to do. I am pretty sure this is going to be my best flying plane once the engine run is sorted out. It really grooves. In spite of the difficulties, it has completed inside and outside loops, inverted flight, wingovers, and figure eights.
Pictures to follow.

SLOW Club Sunday Flying Session

Lots of flying. Lots of planes. Good turnout. One of the highlights of the day was John, Tim, and George flying three in a circle with their throttled warbirds. Pictures to follow.

Sporthawk-Power Train Change

Change of plans. The Double Star 40 turns out to be an engine that is set up at the factory in Moldova to be mounted either inverted or upright. Since the Sporthawk is a profile, I decided to use another engine. The Leo 25 turned out to be the choice. Dual ball bearings, ABC, and Schnuerle. Plenty of power. This one is equipped with a J'en venturi from Just Engines. I broke it in today with about 30 minutes run time on the ground divided into ten runs for heat cycling as part of the break-in. Now the Sporthawk is truly ready to fly.
