    RE: Graupner Inspiration build thread-Flown

    Been there, they do not have it listed anywhere. My experience with Hobby Lobby has been less than perfect.

    No, they do not. You would have to have them special order and wait.
    I would email Dave Wilshere if you really want this model.

    RE: Graupner Inspiration build thread-Flown

    Hi Dave

    As i could see, you are using your tanks parallel. Whats the difference? Any experience not to use serial? What kind of hopper are you using?

    Martin

    Sorry been away for a few days with the wife.

    In operation not a lot, I've run both set ups on other models, tank shape can make a difference, because these tanks are narrow I figured it would be fine. Trevor has series and I have parallel, my UAT has a tiny amount of air after each flight, I have felt clunks in each main tank.

    Bob I will get you a shipping quote, just waiting on more kits!

    I might have missed it but is Trevor's P-60 powered? I was just wondering how it would go with a 14lb Wren 54Mk3.

    Yes, P60 powered, so a 14lb Wren should have a little more go...

    RE: Graupner Inspiration build thread-Flown

    More flights today with the Inspiration, I moved the c of g forward 5mm after the first flight today (in 15mph winds) as in the turns it was sitting on it's tail. It's now Sweeeet. No KE couple to mention, super slow landings. Perfect small turbine sports model, now I've flown it again it's closer to a Badnit ARF than the Flash, more "pointy" with the thinner wing.
    Really like this aeroplane (like my Spark!) Inverted spins are sweet and stop quickly, snaps are a little slow, but easy to stop.

    Hey Jamie what a perfect combination for the Merlin 90, and a good test bed before the Tazar/Mach1/Allan Brown design!
    Have joined the fuzz together now, and starting to build up the fin! You need to fit the wood in both faces and bring your fuzz up, so that it can be fitted in the mould and drilled before I give it back!

    More shots of the Inspiration yesterday at our grass site. you can see the grass length on one of the shots, it was also very wet. Even with a P70 take off roll was only 75m.
    Great sports model for tight sites, sealed nose opening so no mess on the radio!
