    RE: GP .60 Reactor Bibe

    I have a 120AX as well but I think that will be too large. Otherwise I have a 75AX. Wasnt this airplane supposed to be 60 size?

    Steinywi, how does your dle20 pull your reactor out from a hover?

    RE: GP .60 Reactor Bibe

    like a rocket! it goes up and up and up! Little less than 8 pound plane with 14 pounds of thrust will be a great flyer, I just need some snow and it will be flying again! Seems like the Frozen Tundra is hard and very bumpy!

    RE: GP .60 Reactor Bibe

    Cool, my ys 91ac is turning out to be a turd so I'm seriously considering the dle. Are you running just 1 battery pack for rx and ignition? Also did you need to put a hole in the firewall for the carb?

    RE: GP .60 Reactor Bibe

    The carb sits over the old fuel tank hole, I moved the tank back and put ign box behind firewall. No I'm still on 72mhz so 2 batts is the way to go! 2 1500's = 4 flights before charge.

    RE: GP .60 Reactor Bibe

    I thought the 1.20 sized engines would be too much as well, but if you compare another plane (sebart Misswind 50e)
    The pattern guys are running 19inch PROPS on that plane!....They are electric but still....

    This plane needs 1.25 4-stroke, or 2-stroke to have great aerobatic power....

    Use servos that are good fro a 1.20 sized plane and use beefier control rods, arms and hardware...
    The hardware is good for .46 size plans....

    This is just what I would do....so do what you like....

    I do wish this plane was abit bigger though....I would have purchased on already..

    RE: GP .60 Reactor Bibe



    I just received my new reactor bipe 61 and very pleased with the looks of the kit. Only one thing I found, they say you can use standard size servos in the rear for the elevator as well as rudder. So I cut the openings out only to find the standard one bottom out on the opposite side of the fuselage. My only way of thinking of resolving this is to build up a plate between the servo and fuselage, is this what ppl are doing? Thanks for any help

    RE: GP .60 Reactor Bibe

    I used Hitec 225's for the elevators and a standard size for the rudder; had to use a 1/8" plywood spacer for the standard servo so it wouldn't "bottom out" like you said...

    RE: GP .60 Reactor Bibe

    This forum has been quiet for some time. I have already got a few replies on this but I am putting the discussion open to everyone- I am considering putting a DLE20 on the Reactor Bipe. I have already strengthened thje fuse section between the wings and am going to do the same for the LG section and block. I am open to other ideas and suggestions

    RE: GP .60 Reactor Bibe

    Hi guys....
    I have finally got my reactor up and running (building that is)
    I have the servos installed (I hate this part of the build)
    Landing gear minum pants,the wings and elevators ....

    All that is left to due is the motor, throttle servo. place electronics and battery...

    I used all the the stock hardware ( I hope this will not bite me) but I didn't have
    anything in this size to use, and I didn't want to spend 15-20$ on hardware....

    The only thing noted was that my elevators don't want to match up there movements....
    I had Hitech sevos in the tail, and these are shorter than the others...Futaba, MKS or others...so the only
    servo hole that I had to add wood to lift it up was the MKS TI Rudder servo....

    I can't tell if it is just me, or if something is warped, or perhaps I have the elevator not LEVEL....AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHGGGGGGGGGGGG G

    I have been throwing around the engine choices as well....Gas/Glow....
    I Think I may try to use this plane as a pattern setup, as the elevators and rudder, prevents huge 3D throws...

    RE: GP .60 Reactor Bibe

    I think I will stay with the Saito 125 for two reasons. Sound and down low grunt....this also keeps the speeds down and steady. The stock engine.mount doesn't seem up to challenge for a doe20cc.

    does the muffler clear the cowl or do you have to cut a hole the size of the entire muffler?....

    Curious about that too; bet you're right though...[] Maybe one of the Pitts mufflers for the 20 might fit with little or no cutting on the side of the cowl. I love my bipe on 6S electric; just wish I could get a little longer than 7 minute flights. It's too much fun to have to land some times[8D]

    RE: GP .60 Reactor Bibe

    I really like the ease of gasoline, but the fit is quite tight furthermore, stock mufler really isn't a muffler, it is more of a muffled strait pipe. I would have to weld up a large volume mucked that could possibly fit on the battery compartment. Otherwise it would be too laud to run in populated areas...7

    RE: GP .60 Reactor Bibe

    I know everybody is different, but I don’t mind the cowl cut. This plane is such a blast to fly. I have been out in 30 mph winds and I have giggled while I flew it. I’m not real worried about the looks of it but the performance is where it is at. This is a 7.5 pound plane with 14 pounds of thrust. It floats when I want it rolls so fast I have the ailerons back at 50% for normal flying. It will 3d as good as any bipe! This is my travel, windy, just want to have fun plane. I always land with a smile and others just shake their head!! The Saito 91 was fun but this is so much fun it should be illegal.

    Steiny

    You can’t see the cowl in the air.
