    Does anyone as this RTF version of the Rare Bear?

    sergio - be ready for a plethora of people screaming at you. i certainly hope that you're trolling since there's no way anyone's going to recommend that plane for a beginner. my ONE cent because it jus ain worth two.

    RE: ThunderTiger Rare Bear

    Problem here is the reputation damage and reliabilty of the Rare Bear has been done. I mean it's like the "Spinach" mess a couple months back. It's going to be very difficult to sell that product no matter what anybody says.

    I was in Costco the other day and they always have food samples. Anything with Spinach in it is being passed on by. I also recall when Ace was blowing off the issue. Now the tables are turn and we are blowing them off. They would have to make me a killer deal to run the risk of it.

    As far as this plane being used as a first trainer, I say go fo it. Set up real nice. Get some cash invested it. Take lots of photos before you take to the field. At least you'll have something to remember it by when you bring it all back in a garbage bag![sm=cry_smile.gif]

    RE: ThunderTiger Rare Bear

    I would love you be at a big "fly in." Have some guy stuff a plane into thousands of pieces. Then see some guy come onto the field carrying a huge gas powered leaf blower and blow it off the field. Reminds of an old Jetsons cartoon when the football players nailed each other and theywould come onto the field and scrape up the mess real quick and leave.

    RE: ThunderTiger Rare Bear

    Gee guys, glad I checked out the forum before I decided on buying a TT Rear Bear (first edition still new in box) that was offered to me yesterday on a club sale..... Wasnt looking for a new plane but wow....it did look awsome.
    Took me "a few" hours to work through this topic but time well spend as it turned out!
    A big no no for this one (for me that is)
    Thanks for all your input!
    Cheers, Hans
    Hey Mad Monster

    RE: ThunderTiger Rare Bear

    Wow, I have not been to this RB thread for nearly 2 YEARS since my posting of my RB OS 1.60FX engine install and this thread is still alive !!

    My RB with the OS 1.60 FX is my most flown prop airplane and evertime I bring it out, even after 2 seasons of flying, it still impresses.

    Hope everyone else is having as much fun with theirs as I have.

    Keep em fly'n.

    RE: ThunderTiger Rare Bear

    vampire........I have a little over 200 flights on mine, and I had to remake the gear doors , and do some more gluing, but thats normal, its now hangin in the livin room. I can always fly it again if I get the urge, but quite frankly, Ive pushed it to the limits and Im bored with it.

    RE: ThunderTiger Rare Bear

    I can tell you where the limit is. It was 135 mph(radar) on my bird, and it took an OS 160 with a 15x11 prop to get there. I agree flying a under powered Rare Bear around at 95 mph would get pretty boring. Ill build another one someday and go for 145. It will propably take some aluminum rods in the stab to do it. It will also take something a little bigger than the OS 160. Too many other projects this year however. See ya

    Not bored with the speed, it isnt underpowered, (your overpowered), and ya coulda went faster with a better, smaller engine. Im gettin 122 with a st90 3 blade 13/8 prop, runnin smokin rich, but I could care less about speed records. This is a sport plane, not a speed demon.......I have those too.
    Im bored with the plane .....period. I have over 100 planes man..........
    No, I dont just do high speed passes..........that is boring ...........
    Funny ya callin me underpowered....thats funny funny stufff.........gawd......it never ends on this site.........................

    RE: ThunderTiger Rare Bear

    Medium CA isn't enough. You need to review the earlier sections of this thread for recommendations on how to reinforce the langing gear mounts. I did the same mods that Vampire recommended and it still wasn't enough for my field. I peeled the gear mounts out of my RB several times and then grounded the plane until I could fabricated proper mounts. Since installing my new gear mounts I've put about 75 flights on it without a single gear mount failure.

    Vampire's Gear Plate Mod Go to Post # 439.

    RE: ThunderTiger Rare Bear

    Hmmm, this appears to be beefed up considerably since the first version most of us have, anyone know for certain that even this new (look at the triple layers) design still doesn't work out-of-the-box?

    RE: ThunderTiger Rare Bear

    two layers are fine PROVIDED that they are SECURELY attached to the joining ribs with, perhaps, interlocking wood.

    but if they are not interlocking, then ya had betta reinforce them to the ribs with glass cloth and epoxy or else, even with 4 layers, they'll rip out. include the wing's leading edge and the ribs all the way back to the spar in the structural strungthening because that is where the tortional forces end up transfering to upon landings.

    He may not be your friend anymore once you buy (and fly) it...

    Seriously, nice looking, unfortunately, some cheap building shortcuts require a few mods, if those have been done (and I would verify that they have) then you have a decent flying plane as well...
