I received mine today that I ordered from my local hobby shop. They received three of them and two are being shipped back because the wings where smashed in shipment. Very cool looking plane and it is VERY large. Hopefully ill have it in the air next week.

$399 is what they charged me and im proly going to go with an os 1.60 even though is calls for 1.20-1.50 2 stroke. The manual says they test flew the plane with a Saito 1.50 and weighed 12 pounds 2 ounces. It also says that if it is "powered with a 1.50 2-stroke or 1.80 4-stroke it turned into a very capable aerobatic airplane but that it isnt intended for IMAC competition." Sounds like it is going to be a lot of fun.

Default Rascal

I got mine yesterday from Hobby town. Been on order for 4 mos.
Some damage in shipping to top fuse in front of canopy. Minor and fixed. Should fly today. This thing is big.. Useing 23 cc gas for power. I figured if you use glo it will take a week to clean this thing up after flying. I will keep you guys informed on how it flies.

Default big plane

I flew the rascal today.. Mine has a 23cc gas eng. with a 18-8 master airscrew scimitar wood prop. Tached at 7000 rpm. Idle was 1900 rpm.
Ready to go less fuel 13.25 pounds.
Take off was just as you would expect. .25% throtle and about 75feet. Nothing unusual. I required NO TRIM adjustments a first for me.
Vertical is almost unlimited with me set up.
I does fly faster than you would think. And it glides and glides and glides. At Idle on landing it still pulls to strong. So I am gona change to a 18-6 prop.
If you can fly a trainer you can fly this. The flight pattern needs to be adjusted if you are used to 40 sizwd planes. It flies like a big motor glider. I may mix some up ailerons on landing to kill some lift.
I say put gas on it and fly all day for pennys and no windex for clean up.
I will have some flight pics soon.
By the way mine is red and white.

Default Rascal

Aerobatics are something I did not do too much of. It does loop easier than any plane I have flown. Rolls on low rate are very slow. I will try some stressfull stuff this weekend.
I had my local Hobby Lobby order it for me. He still has a blue one in stock. Give him a call 615 771 7441 ask for Bobby he is the owner.
I should have some pics posted soon. I took about 7 pics today.

That's a good sized plane! My LHS just got one in as well, but I didn't look at it... No bucks!

Hey, your workbench is as orderly as mine is most of the time!

Nice lookin' plane, Hooked. I'm still lovin' my Rascal Forty though.

Default Rascal 110

Hooked,

I just picked up mine today--the blue one. What brand engine are you using? What kind of antenna are you using--I see from the pics that it is some kind of whip type? What kind of vertical are you getting with the 23cc engine?

Sorry for so many questions, but this plane has a very narrow firewall and deciding just which gas engine to use is a problem. Looks to me like the 3W-24 with inverted pitts muffler will fit inside the cowl with very little cutting. Just not sure about the power and reliability of this engine. The new Zenoah G-26 looks to be too wide to fit comfortably. RCS 140 is out of the question--not reliable from my own experiences.

Anyway your answers and thought will be appreciated. And congratulations on one fine looking bird.

Sam

Default Wings

Hi all,

How does the wings attach to the fuse? It's not one-piece, is it?

Later,

Willem

Default Sig Rascal 110 110" wingspan

Tinman (and all),
The Rascal 110 ARF wings are 2-piece. The main wing joiner is a hardened aluminum "bar" that's 5mm thick. The rear joiner a thick walled aluminum tube.

With the wings mated, they attach to the fuselage with two 3/8" dia. hardwood dowels at the front and the wing is secured to the fuselage with 1/4-20 nylon bolts at the rear.

The wing struts are functional. They are factory painted, airfoiled aluminum and are attached to the fuselage and wing bottom with 4-40 cap head bolts.

This attach system has been designed to take a lot of punishment.

I apologize for interupting your thread.

On the contrary Scott, it's good to know that the manufacturers are paying attention. I look at the 110 and see "affordable glider tug". Thanks...

Default 110

The 23 cc eng is of unknown type. I would think that any 23cc gasser would do. I would say vertical is almost unlimited. I will ring it out tomarrow if the weather is ok. The antenna is from www.planesplus.com it realy helps range. And it get it out of fuse and away from the engine.
I would say if you don't have one of these big planes. You better get one.

Default manual question

Hello, I just purchased this ARF at my LHS today. When I got it home I found that I was shorted the manual and decal sheet. I have sent email to SIG to get these but want to get started. Can you tell me what the control throws and CG are supposed to be?

I haven't decided on the motor yet. I have an OS160 2C, and Saito 150, as well as BME 44, (but think that is too big, though it weighs as much as the G23) Any opinions?

Scott
