You will have fun with the Shrike! I built a cart for it to ride on for take off. Some guys even made the cart with r/c steering. If I remember, I had a TT.46 with a Mac pipe and a 10x10 prop. Truly a fun plane for speed!

Fun airplane! Good luck with the build.

I built and flown the Shrike 40. Would like to build another someday. Just make sure the top and bottom look different when covering. You’ll appreciate that when flying.

Post Shrike Kit Modification

I decided change the aileron commands, instead of using the regular commands I will put two servos using a "Y" extension.
It's important design a small box to accommodate the servos.

Default Fixing Rudders

The easy way to mount the rudders.
Put a 1/16 strip balsa on the side of the spar, one in each side. Use the sander each side in order to have a 10 degree. Adjust to fit perfect. Check in the photos.

Great job! Looks like itís coming along nicely. Kind of an unorthodox build, isnít it? Can you take a pic of how your getting the 10 degree tilt on the tail?

OK. Nice!

If I remember, I think I made a jig out of scrap balsa for the 10 degree tilt. But cutting that angle was a pain in the butt. I too used a Servo for each aileron. I also made a dual rudder modification using a single servo. I had the 40 size Shrike with an OS 40 FSR and tuned pipe. The tuned pipe set up also kept the airplane clean too!

RCfFyerDan, how well did the takeoff cart work? Looks interesting. Nice job on your Shrike too. Damn! Makes me want to build another.

If someone was around, they would toss it for me. But most of the time I just hand launched it myself. I actually preferred to do it myself because some people didnít toss it right. Mine practically flew out of my hand with hardly a dip.

I did break a few props on landing until I figured out how make it stop horizontally after engine cutoff.

The cart worked very well on a paved surface. There were metal axles that went between each wheel the span of the cart. So, it wouldn't work off of grass, unless using different axles. The front post couldn't be too high, or the plane wouldn't clear the cart and leave the cart. I used water heater insulation round foam under the front with a couple degrees of up incidence. It was fun to watch and fun to fly. I did see another cart where the guy put a servo and steering on the cart. He bound both receivers to the same transmitter for the dual purpose. I didn't like the risk of throwing it on my own and would never let anyone at the field throw it for me either. As you are aware, most threw it into the ground if given the chance. My last one, I had a TT.46 Pro with a Mac pipe and an APC 10x10..........would haul a s s !!!

Love the single wheel idea. Next crazy idea would be to make it retractable as they have with gliders.
