The 55 AX with pipe is enough. I would not fit a 65 AX with a pipe as that would be too much, but I can see the attraction with simply bolting in a 65 AX and stock muffler for simplicity. I have a...

Hi, I'm not using any shims for added downthrust on my OS 55 powered Curare, but I have the CG slightly further forward than recommended by Hanno. For my flying style, this is perfect.

To put it this way, this Xigris was my first, and definitely my last all blue and white model. It's like camouflage! BTW, I always wanted a black/gold John Player Special Lotus livery for a plane....

My Curare won me a retro-contest last year with the OS 55 AX and pipe. The model is as solid as they come and flies beautifully. I had a very bad dead-stick landing into tall grass at high speed...

RE: 25 Engine recommendations needed

A piped O.S .32 SX, and now the .35 AX will be a decent choice for any 25-size application. Also, try a .46 LA. You'll find it's the same size and weight as a ball raced .25, and has good power...

RE: MODEL TECH SAPHIR

Hi, I've not modified it. Elevator and wing are top hinged as it came out of the box, using Dubro std. pinned hinges. Works like a charm for me [8D]

RE: MODEL TECH SAPHIR

I have the Saphir II ARF from Modeltech, and it has separat cowling and bellypan. I used std. DuBro hinges. It's tricky to slot, but it worked out OK.

RE: the use of telemetry and artificial flight stabilization in pattern

The possibility of fitting a gyro is not new, people have experimented with helicopter gyros on the rudder. This is definitely against the rules, and the model processing before an event is the place...

RE: MK Skymaster

LOL! Thanks Doxilla, that actually saved me a lot of work. The pictures are taken years ago - I was afraid I'd have to look for it, I have NO idea where it is at the moment, although I'm pretty sure...

RE: MK Skymaster

Rune... You don't have to look very far for Skymaster Drawings. Fancy a trip to Moss, or would you like the plan delivered?

RE: ZNLINE XIGRIS

Mine is electric, and has just two MK snap plugs (Not the magic box kind) on the sides, and one wooden dowel guiding pin in front.
I don't have a detail photo, but you can see the location of the...

RE: Schweighofer/Hanno Prettner Curare ARF build

We testflew it in Austria, and it snapped surprisingly well. We flew avalanches, and tried inverted snaps on top and it was very easy. Stops as crisp as I ever saw. I fly 2-meter models usually, and...

RE: Schweighofer/Hanno Prettner Curare ARF build

I like a kit as much as the next man, but hey, the world has moved on and ARFs are the only thing that sells. And I'm glad, it only took me four evenings to get this one flight ready. The single...

RE: 2m orisis

With respect, are these assumptions or fact? What "typical ARF manufacturing operation" in China are you familiar with?

RE: Duplicating a vacu-form canopy

8178, thanks for the useful link. I've wondered about the same thing many times.

If you're willing to risk the canopy though, it's quite easy to make a carbon copy (pun intended) as per Ola...

RE: Scoop! Too early to release information.

In the old/new comparison photo, the orange/green is one of the TOC Curares. The Circus Circus stickers are obvious enough, but you can also see a dark spot on the inner part of the wing where speed...

RE: Scoop! Too early to release information.
