Default Parkzone Stinson Reliant

I hate foam airplanes.

However, this is such a beautiful airplane and now Parkone has produced it in foam. [:'(]

But it looks like a great candidate for E-G conversion.

Hi I like foam airplanes, but they never glide well.  I would like to see this one fly/glide in wind.  lol I can just imagine it crashing in a 1 mph wind[X(].<div>-austin</div>

Mine's on order.
Actually, we find that the Parkzone foam planes glide quite well. There are a large number of the Parkzone Trojans and Wildcats, plus at least one Parkzone Corsair (mine) at our club and they're a blast to fly, and thay do too glide! LOL I imagine the Stinson'll be a real hoot. Looking forward to getting mine!

sure looks nice. however I can buy a He** of a lot of Balsa for that cheap price. it's about time for the guys to learn how to build from plans. YES - I know that it takes time to build and more time to clean up the mess each night, before the bride starts complaining. when they eventually crash it's all the same. it's Pride that counts - LOOK at WHAT I BUILT !!! dick

I hear ya about the 'building' aspect of model aviation. Building is fun, and a skill that is very rewarding.

But this forum is for electric models, being converted to glow engines. That being the case, the models are already built, and set up for electric motor propulsion. And the gist of this forum is information on converting an electric propulsion system to a glow system.

If the modeler was to build from a kit or scratch, it would not be an "Electric to Glow" subject because anyone can power any model however they like when starting from the beginning of the construction.

What type of foam are you used to, exactly?
