I would like to find out a phone number I can call to subscribe to this magazine. I told Don Parham I would sign up at ROC, but never got the chance. I would also be interested in getting back issues. Somebody please help me!!! <br>Winter is here and I need more reading material. I don't want to do those home winter projects....

Yeah Chris it was almost 80 here is Charlotte N.C. today and hardly a cloud in the sky. Unlimited visabilty. That must be a old pic because no way you got snow already!

I don't know Ron. He lives farther north than I do and we had snow in the forcast for the day before Holloween. Plus, he's also closer to the lake effect snow area than I am. In fact, the Nazi weather man is calling for snow for this comming Tuesday.<br><br>Don

Yeah, that was an old photo. Yesterday was beautiful. <br>Our computer crashed, but a friend just got us back in business. Here is a pic from yesterday of my new project. <br><br>Don't have any money to powdercoat, like John's KB-2. Might just polish everything up. Thanks for the manual John. I'll be installing an EA-81 direct drive with Tenn. wood prop.

John, whats up with this manual?Where's the part about Sub install?
11-23-2003, 06:14 AM
Chris, I'm thinking you should stand on you head to read that manual, maybe that trip was too strange. ;D Phil

Chris,<br><br>She looks good ;) *I am very curious to see how the Sub works with it.<br><br>BTW- *If you notice, there isn't anything in there about VW install iether.<br><br>Is that the tail your running with? *If so, what ya gonna do about a horizontal?<br><br>John-

Also,<br><br>Love your slip indicator? I ordered one from aircraft spruce. Hasn't showed up yet ;D<br><br>Powercoating wasn't that expensive. I had a speed shop do mine for $400.<br><br>john-

Powercoating wasn't that expensive. *I had a speed shop do mine for $400.<br><br>John, Chris, and guys -- <br><br>you can get the supplies to do your own powdercoating from The Eastwood Company. I've used a pizza oven for drying before -- they sell infrared lights for big parts, like gyro airframes. <br><br>http://www.eastwoodco.com/department.asp?dep_key1=pwct&SKW=FHCOAT<br><br>don't miss all the links on the left of this kinda busy page. <br><br>cheers<br><br>-=K=-

Thanks Kevin,<br><br>BTW Chris...Where is your ring gear? Are you not adding a prerotator and rotor brake or have you not gotton that far yet?<br><br>John-

John, a freind bought this kit many years ago with intent to start as a glider(see the cheek plates?). I have all the powered stuff too. Just missing alot of nuts & bolts. He then gave it to another guy. Then it was offered to me for $2000. I grabbed it. I have the Sub mounts. Also brand new Brock blades.<br><br> I want the nose wheel steerable. I want prerotator & brake. Depending on money I may go without for now. It came with factory built tail & rock gaurd. I don't think I'll use a stab. I learned to fly my AC447 HTL without one & Ken never used one! My nostalgic machine! Can't wait till you get soloed in your QUEEN machine. There sure is beauty in clean & simple!

Yours is very beautiful. Just out of the blue, would you consider selling as is? How much. I know a guy who may be interested. May not be. Who knows.<br><br>Mine has been elevated from "Trailer Queen" to "Hanger Queen" thank you very much ;D<br><br>john-
