I can't imagine where this hobby is headed in the future but we sure have it good today..
LOL!! We sure do.

I was out with my jet the other day and we were doing lots of turning and burning with nice low passes - 200mph+... Twice on the same flight my jet did a pretty violent twitch at the end of the feild as I was coming down for a screamer. Afterwards we all concluded it was potential radio interference / sheilding of the antenas due to the CF in the nose.

The more I think about it, I think there was just so much adrenaline that I was shaking and caused the aileron stick to twitch :

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Are you doing floats on your beaver? Is there any preparations to prevent damage when the beaver gets wet??

I'm chuckling at how our E.M. email banter would put a spin on that considering how we've managed to dirty up the words "Valach" and "Beaver", LOL

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Just caught up!! Very cool Phil!!

LOL!!! For those that haven't seen the Daily E.M. email banter, since Andy and I bought the Wendell Hosteller 126" Beaver kits (this Fall's build thread), there's probably been 2000 emails with Beaver jokes!!!!!

I think this Beaver Build Thread this fall is going to be hilarious!!

And yes... weekend playtime with the Beaver will be allowed As for damage to the wet Beaver, I've found they perform best when wet anyways
