    I remember reading an article in RCMagazine back in the 90's about making your own spinner with laminations of 1/8" balsa with a base plate of 1/8" aircraft grade ply. I tried it for a Mustang...

    I'm sure it will fit fine. I've read through the entire thread and people have put everything from a 1.20 four stroke glow engine to a 50cc gasoline engine on this plane, I'm sure they all flew the...

    The short answer is...Yes. It will fly it fine. Those who use larger engines are looking for something more "peppy".

    I was thinking after reading the manual that the spinner was a poor design. I'm still on the fence about this plane. It looked as if it was a very low quality airframe, not well suited to IC engines....

    Then by all means, do a build thread! If it will handle a DLE 30 then a 1.20 four stroke will be no problem.

    I haven't gotten much response to my posted question and have found even less info. Based on the lack of info and the canned response I got from Maxford I decided to buy a different model for my...

    I believe the Saito team pilots use 30% because they get a little more power and a lower idle speed. I've ran mine on 10% and 15% and once on 30% heli fuel and I could definitely tell the difference.

    I think I figured out that the SIG SMP is 1/4.5 scale, so as taildragger1598 has pointed out, it is nearly 1/4 scale already. I too would like to have a 1/3 scale SMP since even at 1/4.5 it's still...

    I had originally intended to put an OS .75 AX in mine but I had the Saito 1.00 on a Cessna that did not like it so I swapped the Saito for an OS 95v and put the Saito on the Ultra Sport. I'm glad...

    I agree that the Ultra Sport seems to fly best with a powerful 2 stroke but mine with a Saito 1.00 and a 13.5 X 9 fly's beautifully and will climb until it's out of sight. I think the YS 1.15 will be...

    I agree, that's why I stopped flying the Smith, too small to see at a comfortable distance. I've got my Skybolt that I fly quite often and a 1/5 Albatross D.Va w/ 70" wingspan in the works.
