Default Sig Rascal 110 ARF

I just won a Sig Rascal 110 ARF at our RC club banquet, and I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with these planes and different engine options? There is a couple guys at our club that have these planes and they both run Zenoah G26's in them. I was hoping to get some more input on different engines before I purchase mine.. Thanks for any help you guys might have.

I have a post about in flight crushing a rib on my Rascal110. The Saito 180 is too much motor for the airplane. I now have a Saito 120 in it and take off in the same length of runway as the 180. But now I don't need to pull back on the throttle as fast to slow the airplane down before I tear the wings off.

I knew Saito engines were good, but wow- glad I didn't try one of those the first time! Thanks for the input and I will keep watchin to see if anyone else steps up with some options.. I would really like to go with a gasoline engine and hopefully someone else has too. I know the Zenoah's are good but just wondering if any others fly that plane well, it's a beautiful airplane. I have watched the other guys who have them fly and they both have the red one's and mine is blue can't wait till spring. I live in Michigan so it will be a great winter project.

The Saito 180 is too much motor for the airplane.
no its not flown one on a 160 fx the rib isn't linked to the engine maybe the builder or bump loading it it could have been cracked and just then fell apart mine now has the saito 180 if powered up the rascal will get jiggy wit it

Prophanger, I am baffled after reading your reply. I have no Idea of what your point is or what you said?
But like I said, you can read my thread in this forum and read how many pilots lost there Rascal 110s due to too much power. I just got lucky and found the broken rib before loosing the aircraft.

i just said the power didn't break the rib. show me the thread. what prop did you use. flying won't break a rib. one set of wings had a cracked rib when i got them didn't see it to after they were done.also a broken rib won't lose the ac a guy is flying one missing the first two ribs on the right wing has been since last fall

ok found the thread wasn't hard to do 7 to 2 none but the other guy thought it was problem from power and sig told you it wasn't a load bearing part they arn't you would have to go 300 to 400 mph before you would have a problem with the rib collapsing from pressure saito 180's rock on this plane

Definitely a Saito 120! 18x6 Master Airscrew on it. Always below 1/2 throttle. Plenty of juice and I didn't have to hack up the cowl to install it.

Interesting reading the engine choices for the Sig 110. I just got mine, and have a 3W-24 gas ready to put into it. Has anybody tried that engine in the Sig 110?

Yes Sir, Great airplane, Lots of fun Gives us old timer more time to think in the air. I also had cracked ribs from shipping. I have to say the 110 is one of my most reliable and favorite aircraft of the 11 I own.

Does anyone know what paint will match the blue color? I'm toying with the idea of extending the blue to the front of the cowling, like the Rascal 40.

---------------------


The point should be made that ANY model airplane with ANY size engine can be abused in flight and caused to fail structurally. It might not happen on the first attempt, but it will happen eventually.

Throttle management is the name of the game.

If an engine isn't so large that the sheer weight of it doesn't stress the airframe, or that the vibration produced by the engine doesn't damage the airframe, the rest of what determines airframe failure is simply the piloting skill of the throttle management.

If one wishes to be "secure", fly an engine in the middle of the suggested displacement range. Even then, throttle management is very important.

I would like to have a Rascal 110 with an RCS 1.40 or an Evolution/MVVS 1.60 gasser in the nose. Zenoah's are cool too.

I have a Zenoah G26 in mine and it flies great. But, it is very hard to fit the G26 under the cowl. If you do a neat job it looks great. Check out this site for a slide show of my Rascal 110. It is definately not a 3D airplane but good for hauling things up like cameras, parachutes, fake bombs, gliders etc.

Guy in my club has one with an OS 1.20 FS on it and it pulls the plane around with authority - plenty of vertical, knife edge all day long, hammerheads just about anything you can do with it as far as intermediate aerobatics go.

The pics above of the hovering were impressive though - going to have to show him those :-)

The Rascal 110 was my first (and really my only) big plane having flown 40 size mostly in my life. I had no problem with it and I *love* flying it. Also my first gasser with a G26. The G26 won't take you into unlimited vertical, but it's plenty of power for "normal" flying. It's hard to go wrong with a big Rascal.
