Do not cut away the fairings that will trap air and slow you down..

Thumbs up ROAR LEGAL STATUS for FRIZBEE

I just recieved an e-mail this morning from the ROAR Technical Director informing me the #1491 1/8th Frizbee is indeed now a ROAR legal body. It sometimes takes a few days (or a week) for the ROAR webmaster to get the "approved" body list updated on their web site. It should be posted very soon. Thanks for your interest.

Default Frizbee Aero Fairings?

Theoretically speaking - the cyl. head/ins box fairing should be left closed. IF (and I emphasize if ) the cyl. head is running too hot, a couple of small 1/4" holes could be drilled in the head side of the fairing - but, from what I've been told the odds of that happening are very slim.

I ran mine today. Very good overall handling.

I have the front flaps cut and folded down. The track was loose to start today and I had the wing jacked up to about 10mm till the track came around.

I may make a few small holes behind the head. I was running 270F and had lots of smoke. I think the heat was due to less airflow and not the fuel mixture. I had to loosen the 2 -speed it was running so rich. A few holes will help I think. I thought of taking my cutoff wheel and making a series of slots.

Here's the slots I made for a just a bit of airflow through the cooling fins.

Not yet..... two weeks in Cincy on 9/1-9/2 for the RC Pro Race.

I didn't do the other one till I see how this one works. I will try them back to back and see the difference during practice.

I just used a full size cutoff wheel on my dremel and barely had to open them up a touch more. Clean the edges with a knife when you're done.
