Looking forward to seeing the planes Brenda!   I'm sure a square surface would be the easiest to do for construction.  I've done circular garden work for the wifey by using a pole in the middle and a rope to mark out the edge definition.  Some bender board and stakes made the circle edge easy to complete.  But I never poured a concrete disk.  Usually wound up being two rings of bender board that made a curb for internal yard or garden shrubs.  I would imagine your flying 35 to 50 foot circles.  Can't remember the length of lines I used back in my youth...just a year or two after Columbus landed!!!!

Hello Brenda, long time since we've seen any videos. Did you take any of your flights yesterday?

Bob


Howdy,
Yeah I had to build a house so I can setup my PC and build airplanes. I now have PC on desk and all I have to do is turn 180deg and I'm at my drafting table. Been flying next to barn for about a month now. Need to lay down some concrete or something for runway. I have no idea how to get round pad so going to get a truck load and make a big square pad, then use paint to draw rings. I could use the old feed lot here and clear out all the scrub trees as the rail line was pulled up 100 years ago.

I've been building every day or flying every day. Be it rubber or Cox .049. Had a large stash of kits from DPC but I'm down to my last one now. Have a few Guillows left that I haven't touched. Walls are now covered in airplanes all under 30in. I had been posting on Facebook as I had the app on my phone and all I had to do was click.

I got me a Baby Ringmaster from Brodak. I installed a Brodak .049 electric conversion. Thing is a great plane. I had it doing all sorts of things yesterday flying next to barn. Much fun!

Thanks, folks!

The Baby was the first of the profile u-control planes, that I had, that actually flew, instead of just flitting up and down until they bounced off the ground.  Though, I do remember destroying several of them. Wink  This was such a fun build that I'm going to start cutting wood for a full size Ringmaster.  I have a nice set of Pat King plans for one in that size too.  Check him out at www.pdkllc.com

BTW, it's been over 40 years since I've flown control line.  Could be interesting, maybe even entertaining........  Cheesy

Stay tuned,
John

Looks great! I've never flown the baby ringmaster myself but would think it would fly like the larger version only quicker. Smaller loops and smaller 8's. I might be wrong tho Cheesy

Great set of bones.  Don't know what happened to my first .049.  I do remember the Ringmaster.  My first exposure to CL flying my mentor in aviation modeling flew one and I was truly amazed at all a plane could do, not just fly in a circle!!!  Thanks for the great memories!
Look forward to the finishing!

John, really nice job on your Baby Ring Master. I can remember my first and then advancing to a full sized Ringmaster. Boy! Those were the days. Thanks for sharing the photos, cannot wait to see more.

Baby Ringmaster bones.  Built from Pat King plans, for the Flyathon on the Brotherhood of the Ring forum.  The Cox .049 is the very first one that I got when I was a little kid, MANY years ago.  Just thought I'd show it off a little.  Will cover and paint this weekend.
