Sorry that should have said Slec heavy duty snakes.

Make sure the snakes are well braced all the way down...in that way they don't flex under load.

Is it too late to fit a balsa/carbon/piano wire elevator central pushrod? Anything is better than snakes on a model that size. I would add that anything is better than snakes full stop. Mine uses an external pull-pull for the rudder. Negligible weight.

Hi, I am not a fan of snakes on models of this size and personally avoid them,

On one I used closed loop on both sides of elevator but did leave them joined in middle.

I fitted the rudder and elevator servos under tail.

Another used a good old solid push rod.

I intended to brace at every former with snake exits under the tailplane. No problems doing this because the lower sheeting is not on the fuselage yet.

Wing folded during a loop, no Flying wires were fitted,

It's a long story

You will see from the video the elevator snake goes right into the joiner with the horn...all hidden

Hey Cymaz, that rather larger and so much better version of my OY-DBC in the follow on video has made me turn rather green. 1/3rd scale probably. Would like to see it doing some aerobatics. Must banish such thoughts of one since I only have a house, not a hangar.

Going back to a previous conversation about a Stampede at wings and wheels i contacted them to see what the requirements are for a slot.

Long story short they are very interested in us putting on a slot as they seek to increase the variety of models flown at the show and there is a trade link to SLEC as they now kit the model. Its nice to show the punters a model they can actually buy that is not a 20 grand jet.

Provisionally we have a slot but they need to know we can front a decent number of models and get a commitment from the pilots.

we need at least 5 of us for the thing to work and usual public flying requirements apply. I also recommend we take an alternative/backup model to fill the slot if its blowing a gale. If we can have a show of hands i will see what i can do regards getting the pilot application forms sent out

As I said earlier, count me in but I don`t really want to be there more than one day. I take it that vehicles will be allowed in and not too far from the flightline.

They prefer 2 days but as long as we have enough pilots for both i doubt it will matter. Cars are only allowed in before the show starts and are parked at the back of the grounds behind all the trade stands. Its not an especially arduous walk to the flight line and Mr Tidey has a helpful cart we can borrow to move our flight boxes. i always carry/wheel my model to the flight line fully rigged as its easier than carrying it down in bits.

Nice work Bert. The more we can get the better. I was also thinking we could all get together on the flight line and have all the models nesting together. It would look great

What what type of back up model would be suitable,

I have a old 1/4 scale DB SE5A with DLE 30 in it, I flew both at last years Southern show at Headcorn.

I’m assuming something that will cope with a gusty wind?? What’s the thoughts from others?

Pretty much. I take my 80'' warbird as a backup for the tiger team slot if its deemed out of limits for the stampe.

That said, the runway is really wide and on numerous occasions i have landed across it to make sure i am in to wind. You can run in normally then pull a bit of a handbrake turn to just kick yourself into the headwind and plonk it down on the deck. Unless its really turbulent its normally ok.

Martin asked me for some details about the costs for WW and i thought i might as well post it here for all to see.

If you wish to fly and get all your paperwork sorted out you get free entry to the show and, if you desire, a free camping spot for your portable abode of choice (a 35 quid argos tent for me, no expense spent!). All food/drink, travel costs and model costs like fuel are your own. If you dont want to stay you can opt for a daily pass but this means more travel costs. The choice is yours.

I believe you can also get a free pass for your mandatory helper. Each pilot has a helper/spotter to aid starting, model recovery after landing, and as an extra set of eyes to try and prevent accidents. If anyone is short of a helper for any reason just grab anyone you see milling about. Most are perfectly happy to help out.

For those who stay over night there will be some entertainment in the evening, usually singers or a band. negotiation is ongoing about trying to make night flying available for the first time but this is still WIP. If we know for sure we are all going to be in attendance over night we can eat together if we want and share one bbq/stove or whatever to save bringing more stuff than we need.

The evening is usually really nice and relaxed with the beer tent open pretty late. If you value your bank balance though i recommend bringing some of your own supplies!
