Re: Blue Foamie

I have a couple of AXI 2204-54's. They are a little bit heavier than the turnigy motors. Would they still be OK or are they too big? Picked them up last winter but never got planes built. Might have to hit someone up for a kit.

Hi Steven
The Axi 2204-54 will be fine, it's a little heavier by 6 grams but it should work very well.

Re: Blue Foamie

On Friday, after looking at the weather forecast for Saturday calling for rain , I decided to hold our first indoor flying session at Centennial arena since it'll be a week or two before we get the School key. I was shocked, it didn't rain...lol, it was sunny but there was no going back, I was commited. I turned out pretty good, as you can see we had half a dozen enthusiasts eager to have fun, we did just that. If you ever get a chance to fly at an arena, give it a try, it's a blast.

From left to right.

Thanks, for some reason summers seem to end much too quickly , compared to winters. Fortunately, flying indoor for the last few years has made the winter season much more bearable, in fact, enjoyable.

Re: Blue Foamie

You are right, indoor flying is almost here!! I was wondering if we could have a bit of a discussion on what people think is a good size for flying in a normal high school gym.

I was flying a cl*k last year at 30" wingspan as well as a Divo Biplane that was also 30" wingspan. It seemed that the Divo looked too big in the gym and while the cl*k was nice (especially after I lightened it) it also seemed big. I was thinking that a monoplane around 26 to 28" or a biplane at 24" would be about right.

Any comments on that?

Paul

Anything around 30 in. will perform very well, the most important is to keep it light, my Sbach is 29.5 in. but only weighs 4.5 oz. AUW, otherwise they require higher speeds to stay in the air. The size of your gym also plays a significant role in the equation, ours is a 3 court, often bigger than most we've flown in.
