RE: JETMACH - TURBINE TRAINER BUILDING

Brad, My JetMach is also glassed with fully sheeted wings and weighs almost 20 pounds dry. It is powered by a VT 80 with just over 18 pounds of thrust and has been flying for over a year now with no...

RE: Hanger 9 T-34

Jon - It's not a floater, but actually very much like the full scale without flaps. I kept the speed up a little on final and used that speed during the flare to make sure the nose wheel didn't...

RE: Hanger 9 T-34

Four two flights on Sunday and two today - it flys like it's on rails - lands a little fast compaired to most arfs, but like a trainer compaired to a giant scale warbird. Couldn't find any bad...

RE: Hanger 9 T-34

I completed the assembly of the new T-34 a couple of days ago - the kit went together very well and all the parts fit was first class. This kit had the black (walkway) trim on both sides of the wing...

RE: Conachen 100" Corsair Engine

Howard, I am at the engine mounting stage for my F4U and would be interested to know if you put any right or down thrust on your plane. Jim maintains that this would not be necessary due to the...

RE: MIDWEST AT-6 TEXAN

Lear31A - the saito 180 should be plenty of power for the T-6 (especially on 30%) - it should fit totally inside the cowl and offer you the opportunity to run scale exhaust exit if you want. It's...

RE: VQ P-38

Hi Doug - I have repainted my VQ P-38 - I used Perfect Poly paint - The fiberglass parts will not take the paint directly - use the primer (I used the white primer) and wet sanded the pod first. All...

RE: Spray gun for latex paint

The nice thing about Latex is it covers very well and smooths itself out (within reason). I also use the economical trim gun and it works as well as the gravity HVLP gun I have. One thing to...

RE: Twin Air 45 - first flight

Second day out - still impressed at how easy it is to fly (both engines running). The only reason I switched to another plane was that I burned all my glow fuel - really fast at full power, slows...

RE: Twin Air 45 - first flight

Hi Walt, Haven't ever seen a twin air here - very few twins around and they are usually either Twinstar's or heavy metal warbird types. Oxford is about 2hrs from Augusta - maybe we can have a mini...

RE: Twin Air 45 - first flight

Joe, I had the canopy from a Great Planes extra (I had used them on a stinger build) - just wanted to see how it would look with a rounded turtle deck and clear canopy. The extra weight was in...

Twin Air 45 - first flight

My new twin air flew today for the first time. It was a delightfully uneventful flight - two clicks of down elevator and she was off to the races. It lifted off the ground in about 15 feet and did...

RE: MIDWEST AT-6 TEXAN

Eddie - I used standard Hitec 77BB's one on each elevator half, Hitec 645MG on the rudder, Hitec 605's on the ailerons and Hitec 425's on the throttle and gear switch. Since it is stripped of...

RE: MIDWEST AT-6 TEXAN

Hi Baker, The kit actually went together very well. It was my first large scale warbird and I could have done a better job on the sheeting, but that wasn't the kit's fault.
The one thing if you're...

RE: MIDWEST AT-6 TEXAN

Baker, I have a Midwest AT6 which has been flying for the last two years. It has a US41 gas engine (I know - it's too much power). Flys very well, no bad tendencies. It was covered in monokote,...
