The I'm going out flying thread 2016

Discussion in 'Giant / Scale RC General Discussions' started by Xpress, Aug 24, 2014.

  1. Another beautiful night at the field. Got 3 flights in tonight on the Extra using the Falcon 30 x 13 x3 prop. Plane pulled like a freight train and would be really high if you let it run to long. 20160913_192451.jpg
  2. One thing that is really cool with the ZDZ 180 is that it doesn't slow down on uplines even with manuevers in the upline :)

    stangflyer I like 'em "BIG"!

    So the 180 is working really well for you!!?? That is awesome Mark. Much better than a certain...176?:laughing:
  4. Oh yes!!! I actually have the 176 back together and getting ready to fire it up on my Edge. The DLE-170 just doesn't have enough get-up and go for me after running the 180 on the Extra :) I am using the ProFlow large cans on the Edge so the 176 should be able to breath well enough.

  5. I wonder if a person could use a thinner base gasket on the DLE 170 to bump the performance without running into clearance issues. I know it would change the port timing also and that may be a downfall there. The base gasket on the DLE is pretty thick.

    The port timing is determined by the size of the openings on the barrel. Now by lowering barrel and the top of the piston no longer in its lower position is level with the lowest port then only the open time of that port will change and it will be less.

    Got in 4 great flights on the Edge tonight. Even started throwing it around, up high of course. Flew it so hard, I flew the covering right off.

    I love this plane.

    Well boys went float flying at a new please. I have to explain the circumstances. Buy my fuel from a distribution Depot.
    The owner asked what I did with all the fuel explained to him that it was for model aeroplanes. He suggested that we come and fly at his home he has a small pond built at his home for recreational purposes. I kinda smiled at him and said we need quite a bit of space to fly, he laughed and said don't worry come over and do some float flying. Ok so Monday arrives and three of us go to to the address given to me to go float flying. Well holy S??? We stood there with jaws on the floor it was absolutely beautiful. The lake was about 250 ft wide and 1000 ft long and just pristine. It was manicured all the way around and with three large windmills pumping air into the lake. Had a lodge built at the lake for comfort. It had everything init pool table, 100 inch flat screen bar toilet, shower and you name it it had it. So we flew from 10 am till 8.30 pm and we did not want to go home. Had lunch and dinner in the lodge,man what a day.
