Default Maxford PT-17 Stearman

I just put in the first couple of flights on the Maxford PT-19 that I converted to glow. It is powered by a Saito .30. Flies very well after some adjustments to the elevator.

Fantastic! Looks great!

Got any build pictures you can post? More pics of the completed plane too?

I have had an eye on this model.

Any video?

Tom,

I haven't had the chance for a video, I didn't take any build pictures. other than adding a firwall and modding the dummy engine to fit the Saito I didn't change anything. It was a very straight forward build. I was a little worried that the Saito .30 wouldn't be enough but it has plenty of power.

Regards,

Dave

That's a really nice looking plane. I wonder if my old Saito open rocker 30 would fly it.

I think it would. It seems to have plenty of power with the newer Saito .30. I am running a 10x6 and am going to try an 11x4 just to see what it does. If you want scale lke performance it should work fine.

Regards,

Dave
