Default ISC Pitts Challenger Instructions

I purchased an Almost Ready to Cover 1-800-Collect Pitts Challenger from an individual but didn't receive any instructions with kit. If anyone knows where I can obtain a copy of these, I would be willing to pay for them.
I would like to know if anyone knows the plane. Does it hoover with the recommended zenoah g-62.
Thanks.

I had one years ago and it flew well with a stock G-62.If you are looking to hang it on the prop and have power to pull out I would go with a 80-85 engine.The new DA 85 would be nice.

Do you still have the instructions booklet?
Would you copy it for me? I`ll cover the cost.
Thanks.

You think that the plane is too heavy to be hang by the prop with the zenoah G-62.

Thanks.

Sorry I had this plane 17 years ago and the book and plane are long gone.No I do not think a G62 will hang this bird unless you could get the wieght down.Mine was around 21-22 lbs if memory serves me right.They were built strong but kind of old world construction.

Thank you for the information guys.
I will try to use a 65 ccms engine with electronic ignition which is two pounds lighter and more powerful than the g=62 to see if it hoovers that way.

I will appreciate very much if turboratt can send me a copy of the instructions book, and let me know how much was it.

thanks.

Yes RC flier, I would appreciate very much if you can copy them for me.
Then if you have a Paypal account y can send you the money for that.

Hey and about the plane; have you tryied to hoover it when you had it?
I did see the real 1-800-COLLECT hanged by the prop with Sean D tucker himself on an airshow sponsored by Pepsi.
That was in Monterrey Mexico in Ā“94. When I asked the Indy guys about if the plane could be hoovered with a Zenoah G-62 they answer: Yes. Sure why not, it can do also torque rolls.

Thanks,
Humberto.

No newflyguy I havenĀ“t got it yet. Would you please copy them for me?
Thanks.

About the engine, IĀ“ve got the Zenoah 62 and I made a test stand with a dynamometer on it.
It showed that the g62 could deliver 21 3/4 lbs of thrust. That is around the model final weight,
so I donĀ“t know if that would be enough for hoovering or just close.

IĀ“ve also got a Gf 65i and I donĀ“t know if that engine would be a better option. It seems that I have to install it to my test stand to really know how much static thrust does it have?

Greetings,
Humberto.

Hi newflyguy. Have not heard from you since you asked me about the instructions.
If you still have them would you make a copy for me?

Hey Guys! But I still havenĀ“t found what I am looking for?
Sounds like a familiar song? It does for me.

Would anyone out there copy for me the instructions of the ISC Pitts Challenger?

I would appreciate that very, very, much.

Thanks,
Humberto.
