Default Right Flyer 40T

Hi,

I got this plane at a garage sale for 5 bucks.

It a trianer with the words Right Flyer 40T on Vertical Stab and Wing.

It is an ARF and it didn't come with instructions. Anybody have one or now who makes it? I need to find out Control throws, Engine Thrust offset, CG.

If anybody has any info I would be greatfull


Thanks

This was my first (and my dad's current) trainer. They are very good trainer airplanes. I think it's a Global ARF, but look at Tower. They probably sell it.

Ours has a Magnum 46. Flies very good and it pretty durable.

Thanks MHawker,

It is a Global Product.

Did a google search and found web page with specs and exact picture. But no instruction manual.

I am going to email global and see if they have a manual. The Mark II model has a manual you can download hopefully I can find one for the original.

Good job!

I don't have manual either. I bought mine used. Should be relatively easy to set up.

Default I have a manual

Where did you find the exact picture of your Right Flyer 40T? I also have an 40T (the original) and all I can find is the Mark II.

By the way, I still have the manual...

Thank,
C.P.

Cyberpilot,

Here is the URL http://www.globalhobby.com/globalarf/rf40t.htm

Since you have the manual could you do me a favor?

could you look up the following?

Balance point (CG) measurement in relation to leading edge of wing ?

Measurements of amount engine should be offset (right thrust)?

All control surface throws?

I sent an email to global but haven't heard back.

Yup! That's my plane! Thanks for the link.

I happen to have the manual at work with me...

Balance Point: 4" back from the wing leading edge
Engine offset: Right offset (doesn't say how much)
Control Surface throws-
Rudder: 1/2" from center in each direction (1" total)
Elevator: 3/8" from center in each direction (3/4" total)
Ailerons: 1/4" from center in each direction (1/2" total)

If you want a copy of the manual, please ask Global if they have any problems with me making a copy and I'd be happy to e-mail it to you in Adobe .pdf format.

Hope this helps,
C.P.

Crashem,

I'm having scanner problems and can't copy the manual right now. I hope to have it fixed or replaced by the end of the week. Hope the info I gave you earlier will be good enough till then. If there is anything else that you need right now let me know.

C.P.

OK, I've ordered a new scanner; it shipped today fedex 2nd day air. It should arrive sometime Monday. I'll set it up Monday night and hopefully get you a copy of the manual soon after, maybe that night or the next.

Sorry for the delay :disappoin
