Re: Pennsylvania 2010

Regarding Sewickley, It really is a shame. It's a large to blow to Shady Side's SO team and competition. You were, in a way always our rivals, though you crushed us every time :lol:. Unless some team miraculously becomes amazing a regionals, I see SSA winning it because it was Sewickley and SSA (1st...

Re: Ornithology B/C

I can't take that risk though, because at every invitational that's the kind of questions they've been asking following the identification of the bird.

Re: FAI F1D

Thanks, looks good and surprisingly cheap. $17 for a limited penny plane kit. Still need to buy some sand paper though. Thanks for the info Jeff Anderson. Are the penny planes using rolled motorsticks or any other part that has to be steamed? If so, I'll have to ask my coach to use his wood steamer....

Re: Junkyard Challenge B

Sorry, not a circuit master, but the robots and machines being used are making this event too easy, the team that manages to set it up fast enough wins. I completely agree that at Nats, there's going to be a 20 way tie for first. The team that wins is going to be able to open their box, move the tra...

Re: Ornithology B/C

Hello everyone, I'm usually a Wright Stuff poster, but am curious as to how you guys manage to fit information about nest, nest size, nest construction, eggs, egg color, egg size for every single bird onto your cheat sheet. Since you can't write on post it notes and stick them in your notes, and tha...

Re: Flight Trimming

It was moved up and moved down, but with a measurement such as 1/16", 1/32", and 1/8", and those movements were relative to lines on the wingposts. Well thanks for clarifying.

Thanks,

Re: Flight Trimming

This is a tad off topic, but since there's no "Flight Log" topic, I wanted to ask a question about flight logs. At the recent Solon tournament I had 7 parameter (now I have 13), but two of those parameters were back wing post and front wing post adjustments relative to premarked lines on the plane t...

Re: FAI F1D

Haha, I like doing both though! Thanks so much for the info. Anyways, anyone know of any good kits to start a penny plane? Just to get me started, of course mods will be necessary, but I need the rules, and a kit the shows me what they're doing to get planes that light. @Blue Cobra: That sounds awes...

Re: Who's going to Nationals from PA? (B division)

I'm thinking it will be Shady Side and Bala Cynwood. It was always neck and neck between us two teams fighting for the spot next to Sewickley. With no Sewickley, a chance for both of us to go is now open

Re: FAI F1D

It's always nice to have a mentor such as your coach, but talk to your local hobby shop about clubs and when they meet indoors for flying something that small, although your gym works just perfectly, it's always nice to fly with some company. Check out a site called plantraco, they specialize in rea...
