Hi,

Got this beautiful plane. I'm impressed how easy is to build it.

I'm putting a Saito 115 in it, and will use a 16x6 in the maiden.

Is this a good choice of prop?

I'm going to use the plane as a 3D trainer.

Another thing I would like to ask is about a weakness some report at the middle of the fuse.

Has any one done a fix that can show some pictures about it?

Thanks in advance.

That is too much prop. For 3D you want a low pitch prop. I think a 15x4 Wide APC would be much better.

Thank you very much for he reply.

What would be a better choice:

A 15x4W or 16x4W?

Will the 15x4W make the engine over rev?

Thanks,

David

Good day
I'm putting together my TWIST 60 with OS engine GT-15cc. My question is do I need to do on this model, the tilt axis motor to the right and down? (or these angles are already set engine mount?)

At the end of this whole discussion, is the Twist 40 or 60 more fun?
Thank you

Wish I could be of more help, but I like both and each is fun. The 40 is quicker on high rates but both can make you wonder if you counted all of the rolls ...................... Both are I think easy fliers and easy to float in and land. Inverted is as stable as it gets.

Hi,

I would like to know if the engine must have a few degrees to the right and down in the Twist 60.

What should I do to open the hatch over the fuel tank without forcing too much?

Thanks a lot
