Default Suggestions for a plane....

Ok, I'll give you the details...

New OS Max 20 4-stroke engine needs a plane.

My current plane's are the Dazzler (46), Avance (60), Corsair (91 4 stroke), Platius Turbo Porter (60) and a few others. I normally like extreme flying planes like the Dazzler, but I understand the plane candidate for the 20 4-stroke may be limited. Not really looking for a kit, but something that will get to the sky in a short time so ARF, RTF etc. is great.


Whaddya Think? Any good ideas for this tiny motor?
Something pretty scale available for the neat sound this motor makes? Could be a park flier candidate?

HELP!

How about a SIG Wonder? It's a kit, but you can build it in a weekend. And it's a blast to fly!

Default Small plane

An Eaglet 50 is a kit, but can be built pretty fast. Has a cabin for pilot figure and looks pretty scale.

maybe a lazy bee? they are supposedly really fun to fly and I think a 4s would be perfect for one... they offer a arf too.


what make is your pilitus turbo porter? I want to get one but am having trouble finding one I like. I would prefer a kit as I want to cover it in the air america scheme.

How about a Great Planes T-Craft. Not an ARF, but a interesting little kit. http://www.greatplanes.com/airplanes/gpma0155.html

How about the ACE Simple Series Ultimate or Any of these House of Balsa kits
AT-6 Texan 44" 319sq 2.5 - 3 lbs .15 - .19 $50
P-51D Mustang 43" 334sq 2.5 - 3 lbs .15 - .19 $50
HOB also makes a chipmunk kit that could be fun...

Mike

Default Hmm... a chipmink...

Mike thats a good one and I'm gonna look into that...

The problem is the 20 size 4-stroke isnt that much of a powerhouse so I need to keep that in consideration.. I already built one of those Stinger 10's and it was fun but I sold it... still looking for something 'new' to me...


Anyway I'm in Linda Vista, right above Fashon Valley... In the Middle of SD. Chollas Park and Mission Bay are my preferred fields to fly at now...

heres the stinger...


I cant remember the make of the Turbo Porter...thinking.... hmm.. DING! Altec Marketing out of New Jersey had it for a bit.


This is basically how it came out of the box... I dont have any pics of it in its current color sceme (yet) but I'll get those soon. I really prefer white planes as it lets you do nearly anything with the color sceme.
