Default Anyone looking for a bigger ARF Shrike style aircraft?

If you are looking for a Shrike style of aircraft then this one might be worth a look, I just found it while looking on the Precision Aerobatics website. It is called the Vampire 60. If it is like the other PA aircraft it should be good quality.

Tony.

G'day Crasharama mate etc.:

Appreciate the info on the Vampire 60 which looks very interesting. Do you have one in the works? Am interested in how well the thing flys and scoots. Have a couple of YS RE 2 strokes that are looking for a home ane one outragous worked over hiper 8 port OPS that is supposed to turn 22-24,000. Hope thats with a prop? Think the european speed guys live on another planet? Rever Bro 119


Stupidity has a price that is always paid!

At only 52" wide, I think it would do well with a .45 Rossi rear pipe motor.

Hmm, it says it needs a .60-.65. I'm thinking more like Jett 90.[sm=devious.gif]

A really outstanding engine would be the Tower .75

G'day Rmenke,

No I dont have one, just saw it on the website & thought it looked pretty good, I was thinking the same as E-dave a Jett 90 would make this thing go mental !!! I'm sure1 of us will get 1 & try it

On occasion, I hear a ratteling at my motor cabinet. I suspect it from that BSE Jett big block anxious to do something after being pulled from the Little Tony as the dissapointment of the decade. From one angle, you see a 60 on the case. If you look the other way its a 90. Can't be a 90 because that exceeds our allowable motor size for the intended class of club racing. I am sure the motor would be happy in this delta wing home that just demands a 60. Whatt you mean 40 FD? Guess FD is trying to tell us that the 40-50 sized motors are flat faster than any 60-90 in equal sized applications. I must agree, all things equal. The 50 will turn a toothpick 8.75 X 7.5 19,000 or better, the 60 will only grunt out 14,000 or so. But now comes the rub, lets turn it that rpm with a say 11 X 10 or so apc. The total question is which will be faster? The bigger engine in the bigger airframe turning the 10 pitch prop than the smaller plane and engine combo turning the 7.5 prop. If the answer is in favor of the little guys, but not by much, I will take the big one just so that I can see it better. If you can't see them well, its tough to fly a good tight course. With our bunch, you fly a good tight course or loose loose loose. Baaa, spit, curse, thats just a nasty nasty word. Age and life lessons tell me that there is always someone out there that is faster and better, dont ya remember the loose teeth and black eyes for petes sake, how about the bent nose? Yea, but you should have seen the other guy! Just need the fair chance, and a little mechanical advantage is not a bad thing?

I think this rear pipe Rossi will whoop the pants off just about any .60 you want
to put up against it in that plane, and will do it on 5% nitro.

Bob:

If you want one of these things, you had better get on the stick. Got a e-mail from them this morning showing they have 1 left in stock, they are discontinuing the model, so what is there is the last. Oh, by the way, cost to ship to USA quoted $100.00 plus.

Yeah, I got a similar email from them about a week ago. Apparently it was not an aircraft 'they' designed, and was being discontinued from the product line.
