Default HOG -BIPE maden

Well after having the bipe for two years I finaly got to try it out. Well it flies great.It is nice and responsive if you want and very stable when landing.I was able to get three flights in before the weather went bad and every one was great.The .91 SAITO up front seams to be a great match for this bibe.I hope the weather clears up soon here in Ontario Canada so I can get her up again.
Great kit Sig.

Hope you enjoy yours as much as I do mine! I pull mine with a O.S. 61FX and its a zippy barnstormer. Mind your airspeed on the landings and she'll float like a trainer. Got any pics of her? Here's a few of mine before I swapped motors.

It's almost imposible not to enjoy fly the Hog Bipe.

I don't have any pictures to post but mine is done much like the one on the box in red and white.I hope Sig keeps this kit around for a long time . I think I would like to do another one when I get a chance.

I've got a Hog-Bipe myself done in red and white just like the picture on the box. I have a Saito 72 in mine, plenty of power. It fly's like a dream, very rock steady. It's my master piece of all the kits I've done, an outstanding kit to build. Will try to post pictures of it myself, need to borrow a digital. Instead of the flimsy plastic they give you for the windsheild, I took some thin plexiglass, cut it out as per the plans and used a heat gun on it and formed it to fit, came out great!

Chris.

Hey P.J. What club in Ontario do you fly at?

I'm in the Ajax RC Club and also like to fly my Hog Bipe. Sounds like the same setup as mine too.

What no pics?! First rule of the no crash theory: Always take pictures before first flight! Of course I violated this rule yesterday test flying a new to me Balsa USA Enforcer and a Seamaster ARF. All went well though. Glad you like your Hog. Seen several fly and always like them. There is a really nice one hanging in our LHS.

I have been flying for a year and have 2 bipes in flying condition, one in the covering table and thinking about building a fourth one; be careful bipes are addictive.

I think the bottom wing dihedral can be reduced or perhaps eliminated. My second Hog has 1/2 the dihedral and it handles better when it's not straight and level, which is rarely the case! Mine's flying better and better as I'm getting the control mixing dialed in on the Hitec Eclipse 7 transmitter. Now endless knife-edge is effortless. Currently I have both the ailerons and elevators slaved to the rudder and am fine-tuning the amounts. The decreased dihedral meant cutting longer interplane struts and making longer aileron interconnect rods. I also reshaped the fin and rudder, adding 1/2-inch to the rudder width and reshaping both to shift more of the area down nearer the fuselage.
I'm not suggesting these alterations are necessary, but think the Hog-Bipe can be optimized for better aerobatic handling. Every time I fly it somebody says "You look like you're having too much fun, Paul". I'm hoping I'll always have a Hog-Bipe in the hangar!

I can't blame you, I feel the same. The only hop-up mine has is a 70oz servo for the rudder, it improve a lot the knife-edge.
