Default Whatís a good kit for a Rossi 45 w/tuned pipe?

Hello folks. Iím just getting back into rc planes after a 16 year hiatus. I love to build (when I have the time) as much as fly. I bought a Rossi 45 with a tuned pipe years ago and have never put it to use. I was thinking of something with a swept wing or a delta but canít find anything that catches my eye. Any suggestions?

you didn't say a pattern plane, racing plane or scale, but here are a couple, you should ask on the extreme speed page if you want a fast plan

I have a Kavalier vintage kit from Sig, still in production, that flies fast and cheap,

But speed comes from the Viper type Q500 planes, left turn only noted above. Matney Models - fiberglass specialists - eletric and fuel pylon aircraft kits

I don't see anything active anymore on the Bridi site by the way.

Why not use that Pylon kit you have listed now?

Well frankly Iím afraid of it. I originally planned on building the Doddger and installing the Rossi and pipe on it. Then I watched a video of a similar plane with only a standard glow .40 two stroke and it looks like speed that my skills canít handle. After some thought I figured Iíd go with some type of pattern plane for the Rossi and sell the Doddger.

No problem selling both of your kits I see. Hope that gets you in the air sooner.

My favorite all time plane, Rossi powered or otherwise - was and is the Ultra Sport 40. Maybe not the pure pattern plane but certainly qualifies for flying on rails.

Since you already have the Doddger, why not just make sure the throttle won't go to full for the first dozen flights. They are almost like a trainer and easy to build. Use your end point adjustment or just be very cautious of the throttle stick. It will come in a bit faster than a trainer, that's all.

Thanks for the advice. I seriously kicking around the idea of selling the Rossi now. Just donít want to deal with the pipe. My planes are fast enough for me.

If the exhaust timing is not at 180 degrees or something, then you could just make up a mousse can or something as a muffler. They are a pretty good motor. I never sell any motors. Always good to have them around, and then there are no regrets later. Planes take up a lot of room, but motors are small.

Agree 100%.
I have room for the Rossi 45 right here, and a plane to put it on.

Yup, thanks.

I sure would like to get a Jett while he still makes them. Dub Jett model aircraft engines and accessories Low weight, fits in a standard mount, and with this stimulus money that showed up for no other reason but to be spent, I can't think of a reason not to anymore. SJ .56 LX looks fancy.
