Here's a few photos of my recently completed Outlaw. Wow, what a fun plane to fly!!

Info: Outlaw delta
> OS .32SX w/Jerry Smith's butane-can muffler
> APC 8.75x7.5 prop
> Weight - 48.5oz
> JR radio gear
> JR 8231 digital servos on elevons
> Hitec 225MG servo on rudder
> Covering - upper is Yellow MonoKote, underside is Ultracote "Carbon Fiber"
> JR graphics are "bubble"/holographic vinyl from Cutting Edge Graphics
> Yosemite Sam, "Outlaw", and "N-number" are hand-cut MonoKote

Performance:
> Wow!
> 110mph+ based on Monson's Thrust calculator.... but I'm still running the engine very rich, and the 110 figure is based on the tach readings on the ground - it definitely is unloading in the air
> Yes, it definitely does the "Kentucky Pile Driver"

Excellent plane - I'll have to frame up another so I have a spare, just in case!!

Anybody able to tell me how to post 'thumbnails'...... couldn't get that to work, and posting the full-sized photos can really slow down the screen loads!

Enjoy!

Nice job on your Outlaw. I went with the Webra 32 and Mousse can. I had an OS 32 but the needle valve was a problem. I see you mounted yours upright. What did you use on the bottom near the tips to prevent scuffing? Here is mine it also fly's super.

Default outlaw building

How long did it take to build? Did it go right together or does it take some effort?

Default Not for the Faint of Heart

Check out my thread on my Outlaw construction. It took me a while but I'm not the fastest builder. If you have built a scratch kit before then your fine. If not then have some help nearby. These are super planes. Pete

The skids on the wingtips are from Great Planes - part # GMPQ4445.

Yes, the OS .32's needle was a problem.... only solution I could come up with was the upright mount - doesn't seem to hurt the performance.

As for how long to build.... couple of weeks or so of building a few hours evenings and weekends. Not particularly hard to build, but you do have to "fill in the blanks" quite a bit between the plans and the written instruction manual. Like Rocketman said - check out his build-along post, pretty much shows the whole process.
