Gee Bee R2

Hi guys, I am flying a R2 now and can definately state, that it has a surprisingly short take off run,considering it weigh's 26lbs. goes where you point it and likes to land a little bit faster than normal. But remember, larger, heavier models generally appear to fly alot slower than small ones. One of the club members made a comment after the second flight that he thought it should fly faster, even though it was travelling at about 70 - 80mph which is in actual fact a scale speed.
Keith. (I flew a Gee Bee R2 and IT survived!!!)
Oh! hobiewan, the only way to get to know a airplane really well, is to fly it on a regular basis.

that may be the best way for most people but some I know change it everytime they fly since they have to rebuild so much of it.

Keith, I understand what you're saying about getting to know the aircraft. I believe however that the GeeBee would be an aircraft for someone who has quite a bit of stick time. Or else, you're not going to be able to "feel" the stall coming on and react accordingly, thus, as AC indicated, you "re-kit" the aircraft.
I also gathered from reading Delmar Benjamin's account of flying the GeeBee that although it's aerobatic to a degree, he stays away from stalling the aircraft, such as at the top of a loop. He said that knifeedge is great but loops are less "happy". Also he said things get a bit "tense" on landing.
Also, did you read that Allen Granville was killed by his own creation, the R1/R2(resurrected from crashed R1 and R2 parts)?
The great Jimmy Doolittle said "The R model must be flown with silk gloves and is likened to balancing a pencil on your fingers."
I'm glad you're having a great time flying your rendition. I bet it turns a lot of heads at the field.

I can tell you the Koyosho GeeBee z is a handful to fly and even worse on a grass runway. Until i can practice on G2 or get a lot more stick time in , Im retiring my GeeBee till then.

Gee Bee

Hey Scott, are you reading these post. G2 has saved me a lot of time and money buy allowing me to use this sim to get down moves that would risk my real airplanes. I fly 3D and when you fly inch's off the ground bad things are bound to happen, with G2 I hit the space bar and start over, with the real airplane you build it over or at best fix it. I think that G2 is the perfect tool for getting stick time on hard to fly models (Gee bee)I really would like a Gee Bee model from you guys, it may prevent me from spending another year building from scratch a model that I would of only had to hit the space bar to try agin.

200 MPH landing is always a little tense.
