    Looking for and 80" ARF for .91 4 stroke

    I would like to get a plane with about an 80" wing span that would go with my .91 OS 4 stroke. It appears that many planes with an 80"wingspan are of a weight that requires at least 120 4 stroke.
    Might someone know of a lighter plane of about 80"?
    I would also like the landing gear attached to the fuse. instead of the wing.

    RE: Looking for and 80

    That's going to be a tough one to fill. Most 80"+ planes are going to be up in the 1.20 size engines. Not sure what you are looking to do with it, but you might consider a Sig Kadet Senior. It is 80" and has the landing gear on the fuselage, and it's going to fly well on a .90 size engine. 

    I've used the .91 OS 4-Stroke as a replacement for .60 sized airplanes quite a bit. In fact, it's about the perfect engine in a Sig Hog Bipe. That's why your request is going to be such a rough one to fill. Most bigger planes like you are looking for are going to need bigger engines.

    Hope this helps some.

    RE: Looking for and 80

    Telemaster Senior is 8' (96"), flies fine on a .61 twostroke or .90 fourstroke.

    Or, you could go with about a 60" Cub.

    Good luck,

    Dave,
    I had forgotten about a Telemaster. Very good choice. I've had serveral and they will indeed fly well with a .60 on them. His four-stroke would be a good engine for that.

    I have a Senior Telemaster that I have modified to carry gliders with. I have built cradles on the wings to mount the gliders on. I initially had a Saito 1.00 on it, but wasn't quite enough power with a glider on board. So I went to a DLE-20 and now it's a perfect combo!!!

    RE: Looking for and 80

    Here is a Senior Kaydet ARF that one of my students converted to a low wing and also like ken he also added a removable 'Piggyback' carrier.

    It is the stock eighty inchs and has a .91 Magnum four stroke. Flys beautifully with or without the loads. I have tested it with three different gliders now: 60 inch fling three meter Bird of time and something about in between that I do not recall.

    RE: Looking for and 80

    He will be very pleased you said that and will be sure to show him the thread. He got to fly the Senior for the first time today carrying a glider. Did two good releases, this time my little Fling discus launch version.

    I know, I know fat guys in wheelchairs are not suppost to be discus launching but shoot man I gotta try. Well it does not work in the dirt but next time I,am heading over to the controlline circle in the open on the concrete so's it don,t get flung at somebody

    RE: Looking for and 80

    You should also check out the Wings Maker Sport Wings 90 ARF at http://www.thewingsmaker.com :



    It has an 81" wing span and was designed specifically for a .91 4-stroke engine. It's a solid value from a well-known manufacturer.
    Electric RC planes are like non-alcoholic beer, they are OK in a pinch if the real thing is not available.

    RE: Looking for and 80

    A Cub like the Great Planes Fabric Covered Cub 82" with floats maybe...A 1/4 Cub would be a little too big and the 1/5 is almost too small but add floats and it might be a nice combo if you are into that...I have an OS Max .81 FS on my GP Cub and I love it...I find it fits real well both on wheels and floats .. I think an 91 would fit well too...

    RE: Looking for and 80

    You could probably go with a Top Flite Cessna 182 ARF or T-34 Mentor Kit (my personal choice) if you feel like building.  A .91 4 stroke is definitely on the lower end of the requirements for these two, but if you're flying scale and not wanting anything crazy, then you should be good.  

    Very limited choices for what you're asking...80" is pretty big for that size engine.  Good luck in your search.
