Default Hangar 9 Twist 40 version 2

I saw on Horizon's website that there is a new version of the Twist 40! Nice color scheme!

It's nice to know they haven't discontinued a good airframe like they usually do . I wonder if they beefed up the weak areas at all , or is it just a new color scheme ? I think they could have picked a nicer array of colors though .

I just received mine about 1 hour ago and just looked at it. I see some areas that need beefed up.The fire wall and landing gear block need reinforced. I have a Saito 82 that I want to but on it but it looks like the fuselage is lightly built for that much power. But I always build heavy. What were the weak areas that the original version had.

On a firm landing, the fuselage would break right behind the canopy.

Same here. On the second flight, not the softest landing but should have been able to take it. Triangular piece if 1/16 aircraft ply at the back of the wing saddle with the wide side at the bottom. This will be its fourh yr. Four trees painted on the side under the cockpit.

Thank you for the help I will beef up that area. The fuel tank that they provided will not fit through the hole in the bulkhead. But I have a larger tank that fits just fine and you can never have to much fuel. I am also going to add triangle stock to the fire wall it may not need it but it will make me feel safer.

You will SO enjoy the Twist. You can make it as docile as you want, or switch over to high rates & aileron roll so fast ya can't countem!! My favorite thing is, in about 15-20MPH winds is to put her into the wind and fly it backwards. With a headwind, landing is a blast,- you can actually "park" the plane on the runway!!!! Good luck

I just ordered one also. My last one lasted for approx 3 years. I was doing some full power dives and hard pull ups and the fuse broke just behind the canopy. I have an os 70 surpass with a 12.25 X 3.75 prop and IMO this is an excellent combo on this plane. Unlimited vertical, gobs of torque, and a butter smooth running engine.

I have a saito .80 not in use right now, could I bolt it in this thing? Let me know the pros and cons of it. I can fly well , but have minimal building experience, so I wouldn't know where to glue strengthening pieces in. I only ever put 2 arfs together, showtime 50 and a kangke waco upf-7.

Is it true that it's unusually tricky to do harriers with this?

Otherwise I've read good things about it... sort of a unique plane. It's on my short list for a new one.

Not only is the Twist a blast to fly, it works great with snow ski's and floats.

Try a inverted flat spin with a set of floats on it.

Looks great in the air

This thing needs, no beggs to be overpowered. I have video of a flat spin landing followed by short takeoff and back into a harrier. It also flies great backwards with a good stiff nose wind. My 1st one lasted approx 3 years before giving in to the riggors of an over-demanding pilot. Fun-flies are simply...... well, simple with this plane. It floats like a parachutte and flies fast if asked to do so. I run a OS 70 II Surpass in this thing and it is simply AMAZING!!!!
