Thread: The Building of the BebBit
21/06/2011 09:38:42
Maidened mine yesterday, took a long time to ROG, then shot vertical, used loads of down trim and it still had a tendency to nose up. C of G on the spar, weighs 2 1/2 lb and 300 watts to power it.
Reduced the power and noticed that the plane was more stable, though now had a tendency to dive, so I'm thinking more downthrust is needed. It wasn't too bad on the glide, though I had to keep the nose up to compensate for all the down I'd dialled in under power.
Got the plane down ok, and reset the subtrim on the elevator, tried a second flight, long ROG again, shot vertical into a stall turn at 10'. Vertical arrival. Firewalls gone, but the wing looks ok.

Fantastic build! Time lapse video is a brilliant idea! The only problem with yours and Chris Botts build is that I've been so busy watching progress on them that my own build has slown (to a crawl). Wish I could build like that.
Incidentally, it was Chris Bott that turned up at greenacres Club night with the Webbit kit - my own 'building' - if you can call it that - is assembling foamies like the pico jet and twinstar. I've learned a tremendous amount so far with the Webbit build, and knowledge can only be increased by building blogs like this.I'm all for the mass build - I don't think I would have attempted it otherwise.
Regards, Martin

Love it! Even though I've seen it and aware of it, I bet I end up doing the same!

I'm amazed at your productivity.I keep meaning to get on with mine, but end up watching your build instead. Nice cowl assembly!
PS: Thanks for the mention on the u/c idea. You can blame me if it's too bouncy!

You can come round and do mine! I expect yours will be done by the weekend.Great job Chris!

Blimey Chris, you get on at a fair rate of knots. Looks good, as usual with your planes.

Chris, you're a quick worker! Looks good, hope mine turns out half as good.

Hi Martin, welcome to the build.
Yours is one of the Greenacres eight isn't it?

Yes Chris, I'm learning a lot already!
