    RE: GEE BEE R3 RACER??WOW!!!

    I've got my 20cc 59" wingspan version about ready to test fly. I used a DLE 20 with IBE and a single A123 powering the plane. It seems as though my AUW will come in at about 7 1/2 lbs.
    I'll post pictures soon depending on how things go at the field. Graphics are available from Bad Brad Graphics.

    Don't fret, because in the end all we are is dust in the wind.

    RE: GEE BEE R3 RACER??WOW!!!


    ORIGINAL: TTRotary

    Spoke with Gerry at Giant ModelsΒ* (HUGEΒ*thanks Kerwin51 !!!!!) and they have not only the subject plane, AKA the ''20cc'' version, but also a 30cc 73'' and a 100cc which must be that german one we see in the videos. All are made by the same Chinese company, and all are ongoing models. The 20cc (ours) is already in, but the others are coming February. The smallest one, ours, has the highest wing loading, which would explain the difficult flying characteristics, although having reviewed all the vids, some seem to fly this baby with no issues other than somewhat tricky landings due mostly to the no-spring gear. All the Giant models ones come in the Texaco scheme according to their website.

    Nex, I'm about to pull the trigger but let me know if you want to trade. I'd prefer your paint scheme.


    Also, Id love to know how much the airframe weighs. I keep hearing refernces to ''light build'' but then I see 8.5lb porkers. Can anyone weigh their airframe?

    Someone said: I keep hearing references to ''light build'' but then I see 8.5lb porkers. Can anyone weigh their airframe?

    Mine weighs about 13.5 pounds. But that's because I swapped out the tiny stock wings in favor of 1,000 sq inches worth of "lift" from a Great Planes RV. Then I hung a Saito 170R3 radial on the firewall , and hand crafted and painted my own fiberglass cowl. This winter's (as yet incomplete) projects include mounting the wheel pants to the robart struts and rounding off the square wingtips to improve the look. The youtube link shows some takeoffs/landings with the sweet sound of that radial engine! [link]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LbX4yXmD0So[/link]

    RE: GEE BEE R3 RACER??WOW!!!

    I'm building the 59'' version, but I'm pretty much stuck on the wires holding the landing gear.

    I can't figure out where or how the wires attach to the landing gear metal rod/axle. doesn't seem to
    locate the correct hardware, if any, to fasten to. Just to be clear, after the wires enter into the wheel pants,
    where the actual wheel is, where/how do the wires attach?

    If anyone can please explain or even better post some pics, it'll be great.

    Thanks

    Hello, Irecently purchased teh 59" GeeBee R3 and am having a heck of a time figuring out how to install the tailwheel without doing some modifications. The manual isn't much help. Thanks!
