    RE: Bob Nelitz 112

    After much thought, I built one last winter from Nelitz plans, It turned out a little heavy, but what a fun airplane

    RE: Bob Nelitz 112

    I have now caught on to 1/3 scale t-craft bug. Been doing research for days now and just ran across this thread. Are there any other plans of this craft besides the Nelitz? I would like to have or build one of the modified ones for sport scale and fun. I need something different. Those pics are great help, thanks for posting them.

    RE: Bob Nelitz 112

    Yes Im familiar with the 1/4 scale but i want to go bigger. I would do the Nelitz design but with my skills (experienced kit builder) i could not do his design justice, maybe if their was one near me i could get some good pics or an in depth build thread i would try.

    RE: Bob Nelitz 112

    one thing i thought the idea of giant scale was to have aircraft commonly unavailable in real life like a giant scale home built just seems like a small home built to a point some what its only a dollar fact not nearly a dollar factor of a Giant war brid or a giant jet or a extra or something but what I'm getting at why not just build the real tailor craft instead ?

    it's like the same thing just a thought .. for example you'd have hard time building a real full scale mustang and the logistic's of it would be outrageous but a piper cub ?? isn't really that far off of a Model piper cub is it ?

    I have a DLE 111 in mine, which is way over power, even at 40 lbs it rocks. The wing loading is a bit much, but its very docile at that weight. Beef the top of the cabin structure up, use a wing tube. The firewall is strong enough for the 100 cc motor.

    RE: Bob Nelitz 112

    Anyone still around from this thread? Its funny how forgotten the Taylorcraft is compared to a Cub and to think the Taylorcraft has all the upgrades a Cub never had. Faster cruise speed, very aerobatic, side by side seating and all done with the same power plant. I sure want to build a 1/3 scale lightweight like the ones in the begginning of the forum, i just need some more info and or pics on the modifications. One would be different at any local flyin with that bird!

    RE: Bob Nelitz 112

    dboothe - I have been wanting to build a 1/3 scale Taylorcraft for years. Got the bug for Taylorcrafts when I saw a 9 foot T Craft flown with a 60 engine and multi channel in 1960. I knew I had to build one. I still have a picture of it. It is 53 years later and the project is still on the to do list while other projects came first, but I have progressed to owning the cowl and plans for the fuselage. The plans were ordered and received with two copies of the fuse and none of the wing. Got no cooperation to send me a wing plan when I complained so I am in need of a wing plan if anyone has one available.
    One of the holdups on the project was duplicating the scale landing gear shown on the plans. But since others had used a TNT gear, I guess I might as wll also.
    This project is in a parts gathering stage and my DLE 111 intended for the T Craft is tied up with another project. I am not sure if I want to modify the wing and flying surfaces or not. Would like to hear of the advantages/disadvanages.
    I am excited to see a build thread of your Taylorcraft which will probably be incentive for starting to cut and glue.

    RE: Bob Nelitz 112

    Thanks for the info on Jtec. My Taylorcraft build will happen, but have to clear away other projects first. I am looking forward to seeing the progress on yours.
