SCAT in Top 10

Isaccson Winter Classic f1E Question
We plan on holding an F1E contest at the Isaccson Winter Classic
this February. At this time the F1E Zealots want to hold
the contest on the Monday. The rest of the contest will be on the
Saturday and Sunday. This is because F1E cannot be flown from the same flight
line and there are 5 rounds in the event. The afore mentioned Zealots will
be staying over on the Monday [a semi-public holiday in the US] so
this is not a problem for them - however will this date
inconvenience any other F1E afficiando ?
It is rumored that the only ? person who has been a US team member
in 3 classes - none other than our 'revered' MAC the Bigot [F1B, F1E
and now F1A] has a some F1Es for sale .. your chance to buy and fly.
I will add that inspite of his F1A team spot MAC the Bigot remains

contact for Bill Lynch
Can someone on SCAT provide any current contact details for Bill Lynch, the
'Pegasus' 'Hurry Up,'Sidewinder' and 'Laser 660' designer.
The phone number on a 5-6 year old Lynch Competition Systems catalogue,
916/823-1037 no longer works.
Ideally I'd like an e-mail address if anyone knows it [asked the same
question on ffml about a week ago with zero response!]
For the curious, I have some queries regarding the current status of the
AD 06, and production numbers, and Bill is probably in the best position to
answer them [this in conjunction with part II of 'Engines for F1J', which is
nearly finished, for publication in the Jan 2003 issue of 'Free Flight

Looking for Ed Wiley
Roger, please post on SEN
Ed Wiley, please contact me via E-mail.
Although the attendance was way down at the champs
this year it seemed like the AMA power flyers were as
prominent as the FAI Guys on Saturday and we stayed
and flew at least some of our events on Saturday
starting at about 10:00am but what do I know since I
still fly strapdown.
My only complaint was that you guys weren't more
upwind so we could pick air off of you easier. Please
don't send me nasty emails for my light sense of humor
since this is how it appeared from our side of the
field. We all had fun and I am sure the FAI guys did
I agree that Mike and Kevin Keller did a fine job of
running the champs under not the best of weather
conditions and we should all thank them and their
Thermals to all,
In hi school 1938-42 we built fly powered microfilm hang gliders of 3 to
4 in. span. the fly was glued in the pilots seat. We got lazy and then flew
strips of tissue, even made twin powered strips. Trouble was we could
not get both flies to operate at the same time. Flights were conical patterns
of the strip of tissue, first one end up and the other fixed and then the ends
reversed as the rested fly took over while his friend rested.
More FF Champs
I wholeheartedly agree with Bob Stalick that the USFFC should be
flown in September or October, not November. The event has been
deteriorating in attendance and stature ever since it was moved from
Taft on Memorial Day. The USFFC once was the premier outdoor FF event
in the US, and it has since become less meaningful and popular than
many of the club events, FAI and otherwise.
The majority of participants at the USFFC are not FAI fliers, and
they don't go there for points. They go to have an enjoyable weekend
flying with their friends in good weather. Unless CUFFMAC is content
to have free flighters in the entire country outside of So. Cal
eliminate the USFFC from their schedules, they would be well advised
to consider Bob's request.
[Bruce and Terry ..
I think that we are saying the same thing .. that we wish this event
had the same standing that it did a few years back - when it
was well run, had many events and was well attended. From your
notes and Bob Stalick's as well as my Phillistine FAI
comments there is plenty of potential for attracting out
of state participants as well as California locals ..
again no reflection on this year's event where the Kellers
and friends did an excellent job]
I want to apologize to all who were in the coupe fly-off at the
Patterson. Driving home I realized that I had made a grievous mistake by
insisting that the first fly-off round be three minutes. I can only
attribute this to a lack of coupe fly-off experience. For the longest
time it seemed that I was snake bit flying my coupes. At every contest I
made some dumb mistake and failed to max out. At Pierre's contest last
June I finally did 600 seconds. But I had not read the flyer thoroughly
enough. The first round max was 150 seconds. Dumb!
Now suddenly I have made the fly-off 3 times in succession. Sunday I was
afraid that I would loose sight of my model if we went for 4 minutes in
that wind. My 75 year old eyes are not so good anymore. As it turned
out, I did not have the slightest problem seeing my coupe in the 3
minute round---despite the fact that I put it up in a boomer and it DTed
at great height. I could have surely followed it another minute.
Now all I need to do if help my wonderful Walia to learn to use
Again, my sincerest apology.
The '40 Chicago Nats featured elegant billeting
at the Hotel Sherman. in downtown Chicago.
Several beds and cots jammed in a room...hardly space
to walk around.
( John Chismania was asleep on a cot in the middle of
the nights activity of preparing models for the coming day.
We tried the old gag of putting his hand in a tub of warm water. Nothing
happened. He rolled over and slept on..*. )
So, the phone rang. Geez! It's the desk, asking for Brodersen.
Come to the lobby ! Your model has been returned...!
In the lobby, a busy public place now, in the early evening, populated
with aeromodellers of adolesent antic,
I go from the desk, to a kind of teller's cage with grating,
to another, and another....
no one knows of this found model.
' But you called the room ! ' ...a shrug.
It takes a while. With me it always took a while...
still takes a while...
There is no - found model -.
Probably some Aeronut,
turning the screw on a Detroit guy.
So in the background there is something going on.
In the hotel lobby. stuff is flying around...
...a guy shows me this little 4 inch mike job, stick fuselage,
he's got a fly on the front end of the stick.
It's alive ! Legs straining and wiggling with the hardening glue...
' Watch this ! '
It zig zags to the ceiling, bumps around,
and settles into a gliding turn..
Who called me about finding my model !
* John Chismania has passed on from the company of his
modelling friends. He endured this assault on his dignity with silence
