Anyone know much about this plane?
I can't seem to bring up anything here with a search.
Just bought one because I liked the size and looks.
I bought the PNP version, which is not for a new builder, LOL!
Glad I've built planes for a lot of years.
Assembly manual is pretty much a joke and the bags and bags of hardware were a mess. Lots of trial fitting to find the right screws etc.
Anyway it does seem to be pretty nice even if it is going together pretty slow.
Do have a few questions though.
One servo in the fuse is much bigger than a standard 9 gram. On mine it operates the elevator, I'd think if one servo needed to be bigger it would operate the rudder since it also has a link going to the steerable tail wheel, make sense?
Elevator also had pads on both sides for mounting horns, possibly for adding a cross bar to apply force to both sides of the elevator?
I wasn't going to install flaps right away, but the weather is so bad I think I'll go ahead and do it. Using a couple Turnigy 50090M servos I have on hand and think I'll program in 3 position operation.
As I near completion I've had to dig into my spare parts bins because of shortage of some correct fasteners, but really no big deal except for the time.
Planes going to carry over sized wheels for my rough field operation so no wheel pants, good thing because they sent me 2 left hand ones,
I'm going to fab up some wing struts to make it more scale appearing and I think I'll finish off the whole plane in a polished aluminum look, the supplied red and black decals should look good on that.
Going to use an RX3S receiver since I have an extra on hand.
I'd like to hear some comments from any others who have build and flown this plane.
