    HI, I RECEIVE THE NEXT INFO OF DAN SPEER "RCGUYS" ABOUT THE SUPER DECATHLON...

    It looks like we will be selling our 96" Super Decathlon ARF at an introductory price of US$399.

    The latest proto-type should be flying within a week. If all goes well, production of the 96" ARF is scheduled to start after Christmas with delivery in early April (just in time for the Toledo Weak Signals Expo).

    The features will include:
    - constructed of laser cut ply and balsa
    - 2 aluminum wing tubes
    - standard red and white starburst graphics
    - painted fiberglass cowl, wheel pants & wing tips
    - formed tinted windows
    - aluminum landing gear
    - large wheels
    - steerable tail wheel
    - scale wing struts and jury struts
    - complete hardware

    RE: RC Guys Super Decathlon coming

    Anybody want to speculate what size engine will will be a good match for this plane? Something more than scale like flight will interest me. Who has ever had a plane that was fun to simply fly past yourself at different angles so you could enjoy the view ... this will be one of those.

    RE: RC Guys Super Decathlon coming

    I wonder if a 50cc would be too much? Something tells me it will like a 35-40cc better.

    RE: RC Guys Super Decathlon coming

    maybe a 25-35cc gasser? Maybe a Evo 26? Not sure becuase it would depend on final weight. My friend had the old Sportsman Aviation 96" Decathlon and he had a big Saito twin in it, flew great

    RE: RC Guys Super Decathlon coming

    After a short e-mail discussion with Dan, My original thought of a G-62 was discarded not from a power standpoint but a weight standpoint although it would be somewhat overpowered, MY current thoughts range from a lightened , modified g-38 on electronic ignition to a max of a Brison 3.2. Both should be just fine and give more than scale performance. Yes I do believe in having enough power and exercising good judgement on the throttle stick but the first person trying to 3-d this airplane should be SHOT !

    Come on! I think it would be awesome to see this thing 3ding. How cool, instead of the standard Edge, Extra, or Yak, see some guy with a Decathlon.

    RE: RC Guys Super Decathlon coming

    My bad about Horizon having a Decathlon it was the Taylorcraft
    Anyway it still left a void for thatstyle of airplane.
    The Zenoah G26 is a very nice motor but it maybe a liittle small for this plane. A guy at our field has one and I was very impressed.

    RE: RC Guys Super Decathlon coming

    If you want to attract alot of attention,take this to the field with something like a ZDZ40 or DA50 and watch peoples heads spin.I own a 33% with a 120 and will do a 10foot roll out with a vertical climb out.And yes it is cool as heck to have a 132" bird hovering that is not a cap,edge,extra.exct..

    RE: RC Guys Super Decathlon coming

    I have the 89" Dynaflite SD all framed up and ready to cover. I just have to find the time. I initially mounted a BME 44, and though it was close, I just had to cut away too much cowl, and it looked really bad.

    I have since mounted a Saito 2.20 4-stroke. This engine fits inside the cowl really nice, with little more than the valve covers sticking out the bottom of the cowl. I think it should pull pretty good.

    Just noticed some pics on their website. Anxious to see the assembly manual. I am surprised there are not more Decathlon fans chiming in here.

    RE: RC Guys Super Decathlon coming

    That looks like a G2300 ST on the nose and no lead weight anywhere in site. If it balances like that anyone thinking of an engine over 3 lbs. is going to be in trouble. I am getting one and was planning on my Saito 270 but at 4.5 lbs. it looks like I'll have to rethink the engine. A twin gasser just would not fit. The clys. would destroy the cowl and make it look like a freak. You couldn't use a single cly. gasser with a wrap around muffler because of the flat firewall and side dump mufflers are just too noisey for a plane like this IMHO. I'm thinking either a Satio 220 or the new OS 200 if it ever gets here.
    I can only please 2 people every day and #2 just left.
