    Reminds me of another famous pattern plane by Don Lowe. His was also called the Phoenix. Think I would have used a different name.[8D]

    Looks great can we add a T canalizer in this plane & will it benefit?
    I will say it only once Yak 54 the best aerobatic plane ever made.

    Of course! The version with the T canalizer released within 2 weeks. T canalizer will be on the canopy, the canopy will have a specific support and it will be possible to put the canopy without the T canalizer.

    The incidence of T canalizer will be adjustable.

    It is possible to buy the version without the T canalizer and obtain the canopy and the T channelizer after.

    Has Christophe flown it yet? And if so, what does he think. Will he use it in competition?

    Very handsome model, from the look of the weather in the video I could have sworn you were flying in Scotland!

    RE: The Phoenix new french F3A by CBmodélisme

    Hello,

    Today we are launching the PHOENIX ECO, same characteristics of PHOENIX but the fuselage is in fiberglass sandwich polystyrene.

    For a 2-stroke engine this formula allows a multi very economical. There is obviously the possibility to install other types of engine.

    Kit Price: 549 Euros



    Exemple 2 strokes:

    RE: The Phoenix new french F3A by CBmodélisme

    540 Euro for this kit is a very decent price.. for this F3A ship very good. But using a gas engine is something i have never seen anyone fly at the championships.. just saying. I would rather go electric with this plane
    I will say it only once Yak 54 the best aerobatic plane ever made.

    RE: The Phoenix new french F3A by CBmodélisme

    Hello,

    The example of the
    gasoline engine is only economic proposition. It is quite possible to install an electric motor or yamada in PHOENIX ECO

    RE: The Phoenix new french F3A by CBmodélisme

    my only reason to avoid the gas engine is they cant perform well in the masters sequence in comparison to a YS or electric power.

    You don't really know what you are talking about, do you? I invited you to come down and watch my gas powered pattern plane fly Masters, F3A or whatever. Then you go throwing uneducated comments like that one out there. Absurd!
