Aerotow / Re: 80cc hangar 9 Pawnee
« on: February 28, 2021, 16:25:07 PM »
After a bit of work the DLE 111 fired up and after a half a tank of fuel I flew the Pawnee
Amazing the difference a few horsepower makes 😁😁
A few more flights to run the engine in and I'll be ready to tow anything 😁😁😁

Cans finally installed 😁
When I bought the header pipes they came with a roll of PTFE tape apparently you need to wrap the flexible part with the tape to stop it leaking 😲
Just the cowl to sort now and the bridle release

Shed is 23' X 10'

I've recently bought a DLE 111 engine for the Pawnee
I'm in the process of installing it
I'm also changing the position of the tow release I'm going for a bridle release

This Sunday I hope to put the big Pawnee to the test, I have been assured that it will tow up 4 to 5m gliders with ease 🤞🤞

Thanks Ralph
The parts that are broke are mainly fuselage forms and should glue back together when I come to build it and that's away off at the moment
I like to gather in as much info as I can on any of my models
Ralph does the wing have washout, dieheril and top and bottom airbrakes
Thanks 👍

Hi Alan
Yea I've watched the dvd a couple of times now.
Didn't like the way everything is just threw into the box. I've gone through all the pieces and there have been a number damaged

Scale / Old gliders Bocian
« on: July 15, 2020, 19:57:47 PM »
I placed a bid on an auction of Old Gliders of Poland
I ended up buying a 3.5m Bocian short kit for reasonable money.
All parts are CNC cut from 1/8 plywood and plans are very basic
Just wondering if anybody on here has ever built an Old Gliders model
Struggling to find a build thread anywhere 😲

Big thanks to Stuart and Elliott Porter for the OOWAH combat wing kit supplied form Dave Matthews
