Terry Davis' PT 17 Flight

It's Friday March 21 2014 it's a little cool out side and the wind is out of the East blowing at 10 to 15 mph all morning. I loaded up the Pt 17 military biplane from Great planes and headed to the clubs flying feild.  I wanted to fly it to see if the tailpipe would losen up when the OS 1.20 4 stroke motor got hot. Dennis showed up right after I got there. So we fired it up and warmed it up all looks good so far so it went for a test flight. The 16x6 apc prop got it off the ground faster than I wanted but I was ready for anything. the new Futaba 2.4 radio (6EX )  is nice it didn't take much to trim it out and the flight lasted a little more than 5 or 6 min. I have a video of it and I'm trying to download it  the camera is bolted on the bill of my cap if I get it to download I post it for now it is on my facebook page

  1. Congratulations Terry, a great first Blog post. I hope it encourages more of the club to start posting. Also that is an awesome model. And you flew it in high winds too.
