Control Line airplanes

PilotEdPilotEd Club Members Posts: 1

I am just getting into R/C and have ordered a trainer package.

But, as an old time control line guy (believe it or not I still have a U-Reely) I am considering buying a Black Hawk Models Wizard but don't see how the Cox .049 engine can mount as that engine requires a back plate and the airplane shows rail mounting.

Sort this out for me and I will place an order.

    Maybe it's for the Cox T.D. 049 motors.

    Shouldn't be hard to trim off the nose and add a ply plate for tank-mount engines.

    Yeah that would be an easy mod. Slot out for a vertical backplate - maybe 3mm ply or so - with a couple of triangular gussets to reinforce it. Job done.

    I'd more go for block fairings from the radial mount plate to the wing root myself

    Weight will be a big killer so cut the bearers off flush and epoxy a piece of 3mm ply and attach motor to that . Its not like you are bolting a big motor to it.

    go4it - he's probably piled it in long before now. This thread is almost a year old image
