Default Beechcraft Baron G58 Twin


This Beechcraft Baron G58 has already been posted in the "Scale" forum.

I didn't see anything posted here in the "Twin" forum, so I thought I'd start one. Looks like this Beech will be added to my "Gotta Have One" list.

Apparently, it will be released within a few days.

Since TF decided to axe the 310 this is going to be a plane I will keep my eye on. Wish it was just a bit bigger though.

Exactly what is included with this model for 699.00? What comes with the kit?

I can paint, so I could save 50.00 with the all white one.

The test models were electric? 4 strokes may be larger than the cowlings?

Exactly what is included ? I only know what I've been reading about it over at the RCU Scale forum.

If you read the detailed technical write-up at their website, it sounds pretty good. It looks great and it even includes some carbon fiber re-enforcement's and scale landing gear.

For the bucks it doesn't sound all that terrible. Speaking of bucks, I'm still trying to justify why a 75" Aeroworks P-51 is $1850 ! Ouch !

You could probably fit a couple of .52 size 4-strokes into it, but if your looking for a nice scale appearance, electric's may be your best bet.

Anywazz....it still hasn't been released for sale, so I'm going to wait until a few of the fellahs have built and flown it before I decide to purchase one.

Me personnaly.......I think it's beautiful !

An honest show of hands. Exactly how many modelers prepaid for this model?

Just curious.

Prepay ? Not me for sure ! I still remember the "Fusco Fiasco" here at RCU a few years ago. For about 2 years.....promises, promises, promises !! A lot of the fellahs that prepaid had lost a lot of money on that one.

I've never prepaid on anything ! Too many bad guys out there. I did preorder a Hanger 9 Twin Otter. They supposedly arrived at the docks today.

As I had mentioned, the Beech Baron is still not for sale (yet). Some of the fellahs have been waiting for a very long time.

Me ? I'll wait until it arrives and see what the others are saying about it......model condition, flying ability, customer service, etc.

If I see positive remarks, I'll probably wind up getting one. It's a little expensive, but she shore is PRETTY !

I prepaid my Beechcraft Baron G58 way back on Sept. 25th, 2009. Talked with Cliff Turnbull,
he owns RC Aerodyne and can be contacted at www.scaleflying.com, just 3 days ago and he
indicated my Baron will ship to me this coming week. It is a beautiful scale model, well worth
the money. Cliff put a lot of time and effort in bringing this model to production, and the several
fellows who pre-ordered will be pleased.

If you go to the www.rcaerodyne.com site you will find cliff's detailed notes on this model, and he
answers most all of your questions. Go to his excellent site and enjoy! LNL

Those scale flyers who pre-ordered their kits will receive the custom cockpit and LED lighting
system as part of their order, as I understand it. Have attached Technical Notes 1 and 2
from RC Aerodyne's website.

I will be using Eflite Power 46 Electric Motors and Eflite 60 Amp Pro SBEC controllers. I will
use a single 5S 5000 25C lipo, which should provide 8-10 minutes of flying time. LNL

I am installing OS .46 AX's in mine as we speak. This is absolutley the most beautiful and well built ARF airframe I have ever had the privilege of assembling. You will be blown away when you get yours.

SJ3cub, you are right. Received my beautiful Beechcraft Baron G58 the other day,and it is
exceptional. The instructions are modest, and need filling out especially re building the
cockpit and installing the lighting system.

Cliff Turnbull, the creator of this craft, has posted that he will post on his website a new and
more effective construction manual probably by next monday.

SJ3cub, have you noticed that the nose cone does not fit flush, mating surfaces uneven and
magnets do not touchI don't think it will stay on in the air or when landing. Others have
noted the same problem. Go to the big thread on the Baron under RC Scale Aircraft and look
at the pictures I have posted. LNL

Sorry about this double Post, I have it in "Scale Airplanes" not realizing the switch to Twins. My suggestion I think.

LNL,

Great close up photos!

Could you or lucky others, who now have this model, Post more tight detailed photos? Especially the underneath, like gear door detail?

I'm just about ready to order a primed Baron.

I viewed the gear and the wheels at the website. Great workmanship for sure, to say the least! I'm hoping, someplace, for electric actuators.

I'm trying to raise $$ by selling other models. I hope I'm quick enough. [&o]

Looks like some familiar names posting on this site too!

For anyone still sitting on the fence, get the credit card out. I pre-paid for mine back in September, and it arrived one day last week. Probably the best exterior paint job I've ever seen on an ARF. There's a lot of building to do when compared to a typical Yak or Extra, but everything so far has been very simple and predictable.

The pre-paid orders did come with struts and the interior plastics.... I think those are extra if you ordered the plane today. I don't think I'm going to install the interior, but I did order the pneumatic retracts a few days go. I should have this plane ready for SEFF, with just a little luck.

You mentioned getting out the credit card. Ouch ! Been doing that a lot the past few weeks.

I picked up a couple of twins; the EFlite Deuces Wild and the Hanger 9 Twin Otter. With all of the extra goodies, it's been breaking the bank. Roughly almost two grand into two planes !

I'm still planning on getting the Baron, but later in the year. It still looks like a beauty to me !

Yep.... when you start multiplying motors, esc's and stuff... it gets pricey twice as fast.
