  1. Given a tactic TTX403 transmitter, what can I use it with?

    I have zero electric experience, and mentioned to a friend I'd like to get into it. He gave me a TacticTTX403 transmitter that went with a Flyzone micro electric.

    The micro is too small for my use...

    I never had, but I do expect that my retract rails will fail during a hard landing, the rails were also cut into to accommodate the retracts, I'll post a pic...
  5. I think it was actually the retract rails that I...

    I think it was actually the retract rails that I had to cut into. It could have been that the bends in the struts were off a little. How much were those electric retracts - I should have used those.
  6. Retracts were a real pain to install. I checked...

    Retracts were a real pain to install. I checked every post and thread before I decided that there was no way to install them (Robart pneumatic) without really cutting into the wing ribs. ...
  7. I used no CA in applying the wing sheeting, just...

    I used no CA in applying the wing sheeting, just Titebond. Once the sheeting was on and trimmed down, I sand out imperfections. On the pics below you’ll see light areas on the wing (dashed line and...
  8. Sheeting the underside the wing was again...

    Sheeting the underside the wing was again straight forward, quick, with no issues. However, the upper side of the wing has a lot of compound curves. I had to put way too much weight the get the...

    Construction of the wing ribs and spars was easy and very fast (used CA here), everything fit well no issues.

    When finished and joined together there was a small gap between the wing. Since the...

    Getting the ugly pics ready to post, should be fun!

    I almost forgot (remembered when looking through my pics), other than very few exceptions, there is no such thing as a flat building board. I absolutely cannot stand to start a build with a board...

    I decided today to post my TF Spifire build. If there any areas where you have questions and want pics, let me know - Scratchie.

    not much to say about the fin/stab/wing framing. No issues that I remember. Just a few notes. Don't glob on the epoxy when gluing fin to the stab, there isn't much of a fillet there. Again note...
  15. Beginner Build - Top Flite Spitfire Build - the ugly pictures

    This build is intended to show beginners what it looks like to build a kit. The pics purposely show the plane in its ugliest condition – it’s quite easy to make things look great when posting pics. ...

    I need to keep it a pusher prop, 200mph is way past my abilities.
  17. Looking for a KIT like the Nitroplanes Bobcat 50 Pusher Prop Jet

    I once saw a guy flying a KIT-BUILT, NOT an ARF/RTF, balsa construction pusher very similar to the Nitroplanes Bobcat. I forgot what he called the plane, but remember he said it was an older kit. I...

    No significant acrobatics, I'm more of a builder than flyer - my goal is only to bring the plane down in the condition it went up in...

    Thanks for your help, will post pics when the plane is done...

    I'm beginning to wrap up my TF Spitfire, lots of little errors in the manual and some fuselage parts just don’t fit. Do Not use water-based poly on the 1/16” sheeting, it will wrap. Use an...

    The engine offset is designed at 3 degrees, placing the engine cowl far off center and looking aesthetically really bad/odd. I want to bring the cowl a little bit close to the center line of the...
  21. What is the difference in performance between these two setups?

    What is the difference in performance between these two?



    An engine that is mounted left or right of the fuselage centerline
    An engine mounted with greater or less offset that called for...
  22. I think that's about all that can be done,...

    I think that's about all that can be done, decrease the offset and trim it out later. Using little washers I suppose you took it to about 2 degrees of offset? Any flying problems?

    I like building models of real planes. Although never very scale, the Top Flite kits walk you through every step and come with everything needed to build the plane. I'd suggest the TF P-47 60 size....
  24. Top Flite Spitfire Engine Offset, what did/would you do?

    This kit has 3 degrees of engine offset. The pics below show that my engine (61fx) placement is right on (I choose the 61fx because I already had one, they’re heavy, and Spitfires need the nose...
