    Looking for a big ol' lazy flier

    Looking for something relaxing to fly, or cigar flier as a couple club members call them. something to putz around the sky while sitting in a chair smoking a cigar! I'm thinking of powering it with a 60 two stroke. Looking for something cheap and fun. Maybe a trainer? What's out there that will fly on a 61 decently yet is cheap? I have a 3D and a sportplane so this will round out my collection for days when I don't want to think too much while flying!

    HL has Telemasters on their 5X5 test this week. Small, medium, large, XXL...

    Good luck,

    Senior Telemaster. ARF. great flyer. thermalled one for 30 minutes one day. Even more fun on a set of cheap balsa usa floats. O.S. .61 is just fine.

    RE: Looking for a big ol' lazy flier

    All good suggestions. My only kit build was a 3D profile, but I'm not against building. what's building a Senior Telemaster like? Looks like pile of lumber!

    It is a pile of lumber. Lots of sticks to cut at angles and a little carving. One of the better quality kits I ever bought. I would go with the ARF if I were you. You will spend that much after you buy all the hardware and covering. I like the plane. It's fun to fly because it kinda lumbers around the sky. You can do a few stunts with it to.

    RE: Looking for a big ol' lazy flier

    A friend of mine has a Sig Kadet Senior and I've never seen a plane fly so slow and lazily around the field. He has a Saito 72 in it and it just putt putts around. With an 80" wing span it also looks big in the air. Just my 2 cents.

    I second the the Sig KADET SENIOR. It will be the biggest park flier you have ever seen.

    RE: Looking for a big ol' lazy flier

    Interesting, never thought of the senior KAdet. Coincidentally, I just found out that my Dad's RC club is auctioning off planes from a recently deceased member. All of his planes are his designs, but in each one, he would buy Kadet Senior wings, then design a big boxy fuse for them, so they should be nice and floaty. They auction off one plane at each club meeting. I'll cross my fingers. If I can snag on of these I'll be set. The last one went for 100 bucks, 100% complete and in like new condition!

    Build an 80" Span Big Bee and you will have the ultimate slow lazy flyer. It actually has more "float" than a Senior Telemaster. If built lightly its like flying a helium balloon but in airplane form.

    RE: Looking for a big ol' lazy flier

    Although it is not a 60 sized aircraft my vote for the best lazy day flyer is a SIG Rascal 40. 72" wing span and it does the neatest knife edge when you want to have fun. Replace the aluminum engine mounts with steel.

    RE: Looking for a big ol' lazy flier

    I've got a Kadet Sr. with a .91 OS 4-stroke on it and it floats great. 15X8 prop and a couple of clicks off idle. I have a lot of fun with this plane. Mine is a kit but the ARF does just as well. Haven't had a telemaster but I would guess they are about the same. I've got a cub also and it's not as forgiving as a Kadet but it does slow down nicely.

    RE: Looking for a big ol' lazy flier

    I vote for Sr Kadet. I'm building one now with an OS 91 two stroke. I trained with the same set up. Big lazy flyer and also flies great in the wind with the 91.
    Profiles are fun!
