I just finished flight #283, all 10 min. each.

The plane is still my favorite. The engine is running great.

It has been looking a little beat up and shabby because I've just been wiping it off with a paper towel after each flight.

I decided to clean it up and get the marks and stains off of it. The best thing I've found to clean it with is Dawn liquid detergent and baking soda with lots of water. It looks almost brand new now.

Coroplast is great stuff.

Got the new tubes today and had them installed in 20 minutes. By using the pre-wired tombstones, that saved lots of busy work. Really a very simple job.

First photo is BEFORE. Last is AFTER. You have to compare the table top, cabinets, and floor to see the difference. The LEDs are brighter.

Hey guys, does anyone have some Ziroli, meister or any other plans for a corsair?

Looking to possibly build one for display.

Thanks

The Ercoupe flew its maiden flight Saturday, Nov 16 in excellent conditions. The short trim flight resulted in nothing loose or damaged. the DLE 20 ran perfectly. Two more flights were flown that day with loops, rolls, and several touch and goes. Some programming adjustments were made. I think this is going to be a fun, easy flyer.

Check out the November AMA magazine's Scale Aircraft article featuring Darrell's Marquart Charge biplane. He posted the build process here at this link https://flygsw.org/smf/index.php?topic=2346.0.

Darrell flew the biplane at the AMA NATS this year and the plane flew great.

Great work Darrell!

Yes when I did mine back before they became cheap  ( about $40 a bulb) the only option was removing the ballast. But I had a couple fixtures that I would have used the ballast compatible bulbs in if they were available at the time as they were a serious pain to retire as they used the U shaped bulbs

Hi john, the beauty of eliminating the ballast is that it uses WAY LESS energy. Plus, the ballasts seem to fail and need replacing from time to time, unlike the LEDs by themselves. But, in the end, either way, you get more light out of the LEDs. Lane

There is some out there that you can leave the ballast hooked up. I believe the ones Home Depot sales in store is ones you can leave it hooked up.
