RE: If there was no ARF's, would you still be in the hobby?

I've built since I was a 6 year old kid. It was one of those things my Dad and I did. So naturally I voted I would continue to build.

The current poll results are not believable IMHO. The first...

RE: Great Planes Escapade .40 ARF

Bladebuster,
The 70 gives you an engine similar to your friends 46AX but the 52 will fly it fine. My wife has one with a 46FX and I put one together for an older fellow with an OS 25FX, it flew just...

RE: Great Planes

If you need to bring the CG forward the easiest way to do it on an Escapade is to move the RX battery next to the fuel tank. There is plenty of room there for it.

RE: Please recommend me a plane.

An easy and inexpensive plane would be the Great Planes Escapade. Sells for $100-$110 dollars and the engine is a great match. http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXVXN8&P=ML

RE: Winter build

OS no longer makes a 40LA which is why I mentioned the OS 46LA. You will not have much difference in flight times with BB or Bushed, at least not in my experience.There is more difference in fuel...

RE: Great Planes Escapade .40 ARF

The 52 will fly it just fine. Four strokes are not any harder to operate. Just read and follow the instructions that come with the engine and you will be fine.

RE: Winter build

This is a good way to look at it. You also might consider that many an engine on a trainer ended as a smoking hole in the ground so sometimes less is more.

Have you considered an O.S. 46LA ?  It will fly the plane quite nicely.

RE: Great Planes Escapade .40 ARF

Assemble the Escapade per the instructions and Tech Notes.There are NO modifications necessary.,All they will do is add extra weight which is detrimental to the plane. It is a great second plane.
