I will be starting my Chica next week.  Now that I have mastered the inclusion of photos in a Forum post, I hope to be including photos as well.  My objective is to have the bones done for the January build class, if not two weeks earlier for the first Pilots' meeting.

Rob will take his to completion before the build class.  We are hoping more people will build one once they see Rob's ready to go.

There is nothing as satisfying to me as when I finally glue all the components together and the epoxy has set, that everything is straight and level and lines up, they way that guys who really can build, build all their planes.As far as I can measure that is the case with this little guy.  The motor is installed and seems (I think) to have some down and right offset. I am up in the air about the prop until I can get a wattmeter on the thing, which might happen tomorrow. Pinnacle had the perfect canopy for it. I was going to use a folding prop, but the instructions included with the prop say not to use it if the motor is going to turn over more than 16,000 RPM, and by my figuring it will be turning at about 22,000 RPM, so I guess I will go with a fixed prop. Maybe put a plywood skid on it on the bottom of the fuse. I fiberglassed the nose to hopefully prevent it from breaking off in Dickinson style landings. This has been a fun and straightforward build, and if anyone is sitting on the fence about building it, let me say go for it, you will enjoy it.

Andy,

re:  "I've never posted anything to YouTube either!!!"

Lemme see!   Don't you fly 72 as well?  That, and age (maturity), must be the common element!! ;D
Luckily we have Oscar in our Club.  We can ask him for guidance.

Andy,

Do you know how tough it is for a guy who still uses a 72 meg radio to make a video, sound convincing and upload video $hit onto Youtube?   I have just mastered posting a photo on our Forum.  My two computer savvy sons are out of the house and don't want to come back. My dear wife refuses to help me for reasons of "aiding and abetting"....... and all this work to achieve ONE solitary view on Youtube. ;)

Compromise: I will bring my drill and a motor with a bent shaft to the January meeting.  You can take the video and post it if you wish..... or dare.  If you and I view the video on Youtube that will double the views to two! ;D

Your best friend,

Frank
