    A 11 pound, 72" Taylorcraft sounds heavy. Did you add a lot of interior detail ?

    I would guess that a G-20 would fly it in a scale manner.

    I flew my 90" T-craft on a G-26, at 15 pounds.

    The Kadet Senior is a fun airplane to fly. I'm with you. There is always room for a "trainer" in my fleet. I have two Kadet Senior tail draggers, now. One ARF Sport, and a modified kit built version.

    Rustoleum and Ace Harware paints are good choices for electric models. Auto paint is always a good choice, too.

    We retired folks have a lifetime of things to remember. That's decades of info. Sometimes it gets hard to find what we need.
