1/2A Texaco DeBolt Airfolier Flying Report




We just got back from flying this evening at Plum Brook. Made three flights with the Airfoiler. Added a one ounce weight to the nose and down and right thrust. The model responded better in the climb out, but I had to add down elevator in the breezy winds aloft. Stu was also right. Plan to increase the positive incidence in the stab.
Add about I/32 plywood shim under the leading edge.
All in all I was able to fly the Airfoiler a lot better tonight.

Hi Bucky,

Is your Airfoiler shrunk down or original size?

I have an original kit, but it seems a bit too big for 1/2a.

Thanks,

Ed
