Some down. Quite honestly it’s what engine and how light you build it. My advice is fly it and shim accordingly.

Williams will be straight on thrust line as per plan

My engine has sagged down and now and needs sorting out

it tries to nose over when powering up

and probably the reason why it flies with up trim on elevator

Great..yesDon’t forget, now is the time to think about scale details before it’s covered. Hard points for details such as rigging etc. Its easy now, have a look at plenty of pictures and you could go to town!

I am surprised at the size of the engine fitted to some peoples Stampes. My now 15 year old Stampe is powered by an SC 90 FS. It flies at a lovely scale speed. OK it might struggle to do some of the more complicated aerobatics. but for me it is fine.023.jpg

Actually I have to own up, the picture was taken about ten years ago. Since then we have both developed a bit of hanger rash.

Dunno Jon, If my engine order is cancelled I won’t get it

if it is postponed I will get it eventually

The year is knackered, as long as next year all is ok

It won’t be long before it’s Christmas anyway,

given the speed that this year is going round

By that definition its cancelled. You placed an order for a show in 2020, and there isnt one!

Anyway, this year is pretty much a bust. Perhaps we can get out in august? Really annoying as the weather so far in april has been lovely with the easter weekend and this coming weekend looking especially good for flying.

Oh well. I suppose i will have to come up with something else to do on those nice days.

Postponed, cancelled, not going to happen this year, its off, not this year. Or as Monty Python put it. It is no more.

What is it you don't understand? or are you just joking with your thoughts.

I doubt very much if any of us will see any flying this year in a social enviroment.

Because there are a lot of idiots out there who are not taking this c19 virus seriously and are helping the spread.

My son is on the front line and seen many deaths. I am also involved.

Just to remind you: Wings and Wheels is Cancelled due to a wretched virus that killing people pandemically.
