Default Phoenix Pilatus PC-9

Hello good people!

For a complete review of this model, there is one dicsussion thread over at:
https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...x-PC-9-Pilatus




I purchased it used so, here is my new to me (used) Phoenix Pilatus PC-9 that I acquired the middle of July 2023.

The seller is a very good modeler and RC flyer who I have been purchasing his models for numerous years now and all of his models are just 1st rate and they look like they have never flown. All of his models are setup with the best methods and great attention to detail and it shows.

I did maiden my new to me PC9 back on Saturday, August 5th, 2023 and had two amazing flights with this 58.6 inch wing span (1490mm) super looking model and it just didn't need any trim what so ever. Surprisingly, it has great speed and penetrates wind like a knife and thereby retains lots of airspeed. Flaps are not necessary on this model because it comes in like a gentle typcial sport model and touches down (kisses the ground) like the best I have ever had in my fleet.

The construction (ARF) and most especially the covering is first rate and looks just amazing.

pictures at the RC Flying field during Saturday, August 5th. The pictures while the model is on top of the bed and the mirror represents my setup activity with the AR8000 + SAT receiver and the mirror was an aid to see the binding process / activity from the bottom rearwards hatch on the FUSE.

Setup:

-Leapard 46 size motor
-Hobbywing 80-Amp ESC
-Futaba Ball Bearing standard servos (High Torque on Nose-Wheel / Rudder)
-Hobby King Servoless retracts
-Upgraded Aluminum backed Spinner
-Typical Flight Battery 5-Cells, (3300mAH - 5000mAH) 65C discharge Lithium Polymer battery packs.

Flew my Phoenix Model PC-9 Pilatus of 58.6 inch wing span for three (3) wonderful flights at my other flying site (Moon Port Modelers RC Club, Titusville, Florida) and it didn't disappoint in the least. With cross wind and slight gusty conditions this model just maintained its course without even exhibiting any issues. Presently, Uploading the Video from today and in the meantime, I am sharing a nice picture thart my Sky Bro took after one of the flights.
