RE: Transall C-160

Hi,

As you have seen, many different combo's yet the plane flies. It needs to fly fairly fast, and lands a bit hot (hold the flare!), but I still enjoy mine.

Regards,

RE: Transall C-160

RE: Transall C-160

Hi Jerry,

I have been flying the C-160's for couple of years now, and still enjoy them. My favorite are from CMP, better quality than WillHobby, just for the record.

RE: Options for swollen Li-po cell?

Hi Vince,

My advice is to get rid of the pack, period, as all cells were heated to that temp, and the weakest one failed first, the others will follow soon enough. If it is too hard to think...

RE: One large lipo vs two smaller in Parallel?

Hi,

Also, if one huge pack goes bad, you are stuck. Having your own parallel packs that you setup are a better way to go if you have the room. It makes a world of difference to me as I fly...

RE: Transall C-160

Hello Dave,

The C-160 is no trainer, and you should be aware that it flies and lands a bit hot. You should be flying it, at the beginning, with someone that has decent stick-skills. The battery...

RE: Transall C-160

Hi Al,

Yup, I'm nuts too! :D


Got only one flight in today with the C-160, just too hard on the body. I kept the batteries warm in my car, right up until hook-up time. It was 8*F at the...

RE: Transall C-160

Al,

Did you end up getting another C-160 off Ebay? The auction prices have been in the $100.00 range plus shipping, still a deal. Not the C-130 that you are getting, but still a quick build.

RE: Transall C-160

Robert,

Sounds like you should have plenty of power. Mine uses about 250-300 watts total in-flight. You need to check the wing to horz stab incidence, as most (not all) of the main wings on...
