Richard Smith Interviews

  • Richard Smith is one of Frank's associates having worked for JASCO and contributed to his yearbooks. Below is an interview I conducted with Richard about his experiences working for JASCO and more specifically his relationship with Frank Zaic. Richard's account provides a fascinating look into Frank Zaic and the evolution of JASCO from a labor of love for Frank to a profitable enterprise run by his sister Christine. As Richard readily admits - these are his recollections - he doesn't claim to be the authoritative source on Frank Zaic. Just one mans account of what it was like to be around Frank back in the day...

I recently ordered the 3-pack to play with because I enjoy building. After completing the Thermic 18 i took it to our club meeting last night and won the Model of the Month award. The second place was an electric pattern plane costing more than $1000. Everyone wanted to know where I got the kit. Cool!

The pictures are helpful, but one thing they don't deal with here is sanding wings and stabilizer. Do you just round off sharp edges? Or is there an advantage in trying to sand in some sort of crude airfoil? That is, round off the leading edge, sand the trailing edge to a gradual knife edge and leave the bottom of the wing alone?

And what about the horizontal stabilizer? It seems to me if you sand the trailing edges thin you get some pretense of an airfoil, but also an edge that's easier to warp?

But consider all of this a question - not a solution. I'd like to know what folks do to get the best performance out of these little gliders. I played with them as akid, but didn't get very far. Now I have more patience, but no more knowledge or skill ;-)

Greeting. Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world. Help me! It has to find sites on the: Personal retirement planning. I found only this - early retirement planning insights. Currently you have javascript disabled.
