Jim Howell's Gee Bee R-2 Racer Crash
Jim Howell's Gee Bee R-2 Racer. The Wing Span is 1030 mm. This was just the Gee Bee's 3rd flight in 3 years. 3 Flights - 3 Incidents. Jim had just switched it down to a smaller motor. The C.G. was incorrect and it turned out it had a cracked servo horn on the elevator that he didn't know about. The servo was stripped in flight. The total Gee Bee experience. . . . The Gee Bee will fly again.
Nice Landing - Wrong Field
On a classic flyaway due to an unfortunate part of the radio control flying hobby is that of disorientation, whereby the pilot becomes confused with exactly what his airplane is doing, and which direction it's headed.
John Allen Towing Mike Foster's Glider
Mike Foster's glider is a "Southern Kite" modified with straight wings equipped with ailerons and spoilers. The tow hook was removed and a wheel added along with a servo operated tow cable release in the nose. The control equipment went from 2 servos in the original model to 7 in the modified version. This one was built specifically as a trainer for aero towing with a wingspan of 148" (3.76M). John Allen's tow plane is a stick like foam and plywood plane with a Zenoah 62cc gas engine.
Richard Moffett's FPV Flight
Richard Moffett is flying his electric foam Carbon Cub with his attached FPV camera. Richard asked Mike Foster if he could try to fly in front of his camera plane and try doing a loop to see if he could capture it. Mike flew around in front of his plane as much as he could without getting too close. The speed differential of their models made that a bit difficult. Mike's Great Planes Cub with its 80 inch span and Saito 56 four stroke power could not fly as slowly as Richards large electric powered foam Carbon Cub.
