Model for .10

MarkphMarkph Club Members Posts: 54
I have aquired a model that had a OS .10 in it. I have taken it out of there as I am going to convert that to electric.

Do Hobbyking have a model that I could put this OS .10 in? I want to get some fun out of it! I don't really mind what kind of model it is, as long as it has wings!

    A lot depends on which one you have - the LA series was a bit anaemic but the FP is more powerful. Reckon on any model about 30" for the LA up to 48" for the FP (or any design for a 1.5cc engine)

    I have just checked. It appears to be an FP.

    On one side it says "OS Max 10" on the either side it says "FP" and is it an I under it?

    I know this model is intended for electric, but would this model be suited to that engine?

    Personally I'd go to outerzone and download and print out one of their plans (anything for a 1.5cc would do as 0.10 cu in is just a shade about the .09/1.5 value)



    The problem with converting an electric to IC is that you need to make firewalls, engine bearers and so on (plus a bay for the fuel tank) and it's not as simple and straightforward as doing it the other way round (converting to electric)

    The Mini stick might be suitable with a few minor mods ?

    It's a bit small at 580 mm for a 1.5cc engine. I'd reckon more something like this sizefor the OS (about 790 mm span)



    Don't forget that for IC power the front end needs beefed up quite a bit - extra plywood formers to support the engine bearers and there's a lot more weight in the noseDaithi2015-04-20 06:16:15

    I would have to say no or not many from HK.there are a lot of good .10 airframes out there but HK has a very small selection.best to look at other shops that may have what you wish for, or build one you like.

    Yeah for a 1,5cc a 15 os but a 10 is what he has I thought .. a 15 is small but 10 is alot smaller that a 15 . So indeed it will be hard to find something just right unless you are prepared to build from a plan like Daithi suggested .

    0.09 cu in is 1.5cc so a 0.10 would be round 1.6 (near enough really)



    a .15 cu in is 2.5cc
