    Hobby Lobby Pilot-1 PA-12 Cub 1/4 Scale ARF

    Anybody have any experience with this model? Or with any of the HobbyLobby Pilot-1 giant scales ARF's?

    www.hobby-lobby.com/pilot_1_pa_12_1_4_scale_arf_airplane_oversize_5905 7_prd1.htm

    Iam thinking about purchasing this model and putting a Zenoah G20 or G23 on it, and mounting it on floats.

    Thanks

    Big plane on electric. I'm impressed. Looks like it would be fun.
    With airplanes, keep the pointy end going forward as much as possible.

    snaprollinsb,

    Nice looking planes and I've seen a couple of them fly but you might want to check the price on shipping. I looked at the Stinson 108 and they wanted $250.00 to ship it. Looks like they are trying to recoupe some of their money back since they cut the price about $300.00.

    old post, but stumbled onto it and thought I would chime in...

    I did a test flight on the PA12 for a fellow in our club, he put an ASP1.60 twin cyl 4 stroke in it and it fit inside the cowl and sounds fantastic...as for the flying, it was a big *****cat, just floats, stall is strait ahead, and the alerons work right down to the stall.
    I would fly tank after tank of fuel just flying circuts....anyone who has the ability to fly a trainer can fly this plane with ease (In fact it flys better than some trainers I have flown)

    Bill
