Ok, I gotta say it. If anybody is capable of flying this plane in Canada, its Jeremy. We've had our disagreements in the past but the truth is that this guy has been flying since he was out of diapers and in the jet community forever. I was there for his first ducted fan flight which didn't go that well to be honest, lol, the engine cratered. I know his skill level and I know the MAAC rules. There's nothing saying he has to fly at a MAAC field. If he's not breaking the law, then who's problem is this. The guy has a great new toy and I wish him the absolute best with it. Jeremy, if I can find the freakin time this year, I hope to see this thing fly at a funfly somewhere. Of course it will only be flying within the MAAC limit at a funfly.

Hey Dale,
I thought that first ducted fan flight went pretty good all things considered haha!!! I didn't have to repair anything, just replace an engine that blew up!
As for the MAAC limit, there is no actual set speed limit in Canada. Having said that, I will only fly the airplane wide open where space and surrounding area's permit. Princeton is a great area for that activity

Re: New big block engine on the way for the Firebird!!!

Big blocks in big jets is wrong? What's next, banning Enzo Ferraris from the road? Personally I cant wait to see your firebird! That would mean I'd actually have to attend a jet meet though lol! I'm sure the paint is going to be stunning!

Re: New big block engine on the way for the Firebird!!!

Shaun,
Being that you live in Kelowna, if you DON'T make it out to Princeton this spring for the rally then you do not deserve to fly jets and you will be forced to give your jets to ME!!!! Man, I'm just sooooooo happy I live in Abbotsford now and only have to drive 2.5 hours to get there! I used to have to drive 12 hours to get there!!!!

Re: New big block engine on the way for the Firebird!!!

All i can say, is that i hope that I can still fly when I am in diapers Or maybe the way I fly, I should just wear them all the time haha. I wish I could see this thing fly in person.

Now that's a sweeeeet lookin mod to the HABU, Angus.

Wait'll the fun police gets ahold of this one.

Hey Angus - put that HABU in a suitcase and head out west. I'll make sure you have got transport, etc up to Princeton.

I mean, you like to show off the new "toy" to the rest of the guys, especially in this small group of modelers in the turbine jets discipline... under 200 in all of Canada.

Some fellow (canenr) who by all accounts no one I know knows personally comes out and makes a bold statement - basically accusing Jeremy of doing something dangerous, but without merit. His posts suggest he doesnt even know about the MAAC jet committee or its members - or their role in turbine modelling in Canada. I asked what jets he is flying and what engines and fuel capacity they have to get an idea of what potential for danger they pose - but then he didnt answer me, did he?

Then, a known Jet modeler Hans starts talking about the "potential
for danger "and the following quotes:

"Andrew,
most RC accidents happen after these words
NOW WATCH THIS...."

"What will MAAC do if we have a "supercool" turbine jet showing off 280 mph on a public show having a problem ?
Ain't gonne happen ?"

"I guess what I am trying to say is that this hobby is for all of us to enjoy, and for each individual to do their very best to keep it that way."


All valid points, however, like I stated these statements can be made of ANY model turbine jet and what they have to do with Jeremy's plane/engine combo specifically is still unclear to me. People are already flying BVM jets at well over 200mph and thats not an issue, but for some reason, this is? yes, I dont understand.

The next thing, Chuck decides he doesnt like what I am posting and suggests I take a week off RCC. OK, thats pretty nice...

Ed posts some MAAC rules, and I pointed out that Jeremy is not breaking any of them, but WE ALL have the "potential" to do so, if we are not careful and diligent in our turbine model flying.

I ask a question - regarding the sale of turbines from ED and Chuck (thanks for the reply Ed, and I appreciate the fact you do ask questions of your poitential customers and that will indeed save some inexperienced modeler from buying a model/engine combo that might not be suitable. Kudos to you! Chuck failed to repsond to my question....

I did at no time attack anyone personally. All I want, is for us all to repsect each other, and as a small group of flyers I think we do that pretty well. But, to attack one person like was done here without merit, is and will continue to be wrong. Plain and simple.

I do find it funny that the fellow (canenr) dissapeared and failed to answer my questions re what he is flying and where. Whatever it is, I am sure it also has the potential to cause issues if flown in a reckless or careless manner, and that is the thing - we all have the potential to do so.

Dude, I do work for a living. Can't be sitting in front of the computer all the time, I do have life. And as for what "I fly" I posted it. Again.. read it before you comment on it. As for my first comment(post), I did write the word "if". I'm not knocking the builder(I've seen his work on the internet) or the pilot(no idea of his flying abilities). Now as for the aircraft it's still made of balsa and fibreglass, loaded with Jet-A fuel or Kero.
One last thing, as for what Tom Cook recommends? I would say Bob Violett is the" MAN ", he is what this hobby is all about.....safety. Respect it.

Actually, dude, all you said was "and as for Jets.... Super Bandit(Jetcat)and Eurosport" I was asking what you had specifically in terms of plane AND powerplant, you know, making sure you didnt have something larger than what I think is acceptable in there. And where you were flying them.

My point was, is it my business as one jet flyer to another, to police YOU - and your choices in aircraft and powerplant? Not unless you are blatently doing something wrong, whatever that might be.

I read everything - line for line. I have a pretty decent understanding of the English language. I know exactly what you said. I also notice that pretty much in every discussion/arguement/whatever I have ever had on line, when I ask pretty specific questions, they RARELY get answered. I guess thats too much trouble...
