    Pica 1/5 Scale Bucker Jungmeister

    Any opions on this model such as engine, CG to use? Where can I get after market fiberglass cowl and wheel fenders for 1/5 scale? Fiberglass Specialties carries a 1/4 scale that is to large for the Pica kit.
    Thanks all, KRC

    Pica 1/5 Scale Bucker Jungmeister

    Mine is about 80% framed up. I am going to use a .91 fs. brand undetermined. I have a magnum .91 in a goldberg ultamate and it flys scale aerobatics well. does not have the vertical like everybody likes now days, but it will climb good. I am trying to figure out how i am going to do flying wires as i have never made a plane with them. have not decided on the cowl yet, but if a cowl company has been in busness for any amount of time they should have a mold somewhere.

    flyng wires

    In the last 2 or 3 months, Model Airplane News, had an article by Nick Ziroli about using the plastic lacing that is used in leather crafts (like Boy Scouts). I have Platt's Jungmeister which is slightly bigger than the Pica kit. I am planning on useing that method for the flying wires. I have the magazine at home. I will check and see what issue it was.

    Pica 1/5 Scale Bucker Jungmeister

    I have this model, bought third hand. I use a Thunder Tiger 91FS turning a Graupner 14x7, performance is excellent. I was told by the person I bought it from that the CG is at the rear mounting points of the top wing and that's where mine is with no ballast and it seems to be fine flying. Needs a lot of aileron and elevator in knife-edge. Mine still has the original ABS cowl, just cyano on some light weight glass cloth around the mounting holes.

    Hope there is someone here that can tell me the cg (balance point) for this kit. I picked up a really nice one from an estate and don't want to ruin it because of balance problems.
    Thanks.
