Jaybird, a bit of advice on your recent purchase. Check over the hinges carefully on all of your control surfaces,ifthe stock plastic hinges were used they may have become brittle over time. You don't want to find out about it while in flight!

I'm trying to get some ideas on engine choices and mounting. I've gone through this thread and looked at all of the associated images but there are very few that show the cowl off and how the engine and exhasust were mounted. Does anyone have pictures of how either a 60 size two stroke or 90 size four stroke has been mounted?

I'll be getting plans from VJ soon.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Well, I suspect I better be signed up as well. I have the Sig model to build as well as the plans and FG cowl for a 1/4 scale version. I guess I'm a Ryan fan!

Popped for the E bay STA, hope it's as the seller represented. It will replace the kit stolen from me years ago.

I belong to KRC, This will probably go into the future build pile until I can make some time to hit the basement, figure one of the four strokes I have will fit, might finish it as my friends STM in San Diego.

Hi,

Count Me in too.

Here are some photos of a Full Scale RYAN STM located at the Oklahoma Museum of Flying, Wiley Post Airport, Oklahoma City, OK. This is also the home of "Miss America" P-51 Reno Racer.

Hope these help the Scale Buffs. Lots of photos, so will load in groups.

Merry Christmas,
Ken

Thanks for the pictures Ken, they are outstanding and will be a valuable reference source for all to see. I am happy to see all of the growing interest in this plane. Thanks again Raptureboy for your efforts as well...

Something interesting in those photos, that particular STA has a roll over post in the front windscreen. I can't remember seeing one on any other STA.

Hi Culver,

The RYAN in the photos is a STM (Military) with civilian colors. It has a 4 cylinder, in-line, 150-hp, Super Charged, air cooled, Menasco Engine.

Very tricky on Take-off and landing, beautiful in the air.

If you need additional photos of certain areas, I'll do what I can each time I visit the Museum of Flying. Send a PM or post.

I almost forgot, they just received a 1944 North American B-25N Mitchell for complete Restoration. All polished Aluminum, the last model produced by N.A. with Quad machine gun pods mounted on each side of the Fuselage pointing forward.

Merry Christmas,
Ken Kehlet

OK, I got a ride in an STA back in the seventies and a another friend traded a Stearman for an STM in dutch military markings. I wondered if it was an STM, USAAC or another country?

Add me to the group, even though my current Ryan ST-A is a micro.... It was converted from the old 24.5" wingspan MRC foam free flight model from the 1980s/1990s, using Spektrum AR6400 micro gear and a little two lipo powered brushless motor that weighs in at 10 grams. REALLY flies nicely. Picture attached, shown next to my uMX Gee Bee from Horizon.

We have a very unsual real Ryan ST-A (sort of) here in the Fort Worth area. It is the sole example of a Ryan ST-A built from the plans offered for scratchbuilding for many years. Several of the parts of the Ryan offer significant building challenges to the homebuilder, particularly the main fuse bulkhead where so many things come together...the spars, the flying wires, the landing gear loads, etc.

Link to article on the ST-R here:

http://www.moraviation.com/rarticle.html

This Ryan, commonly called the ST-R (for Replica) was built by Glenn Moore of North Carolina and purchased by local pilot and R/C guy Jim Ireland a number of years ago and brought to the Fort Worth area, where it is based at Spinks Airport. It is easy to spot as a replica due to the left handed prop (the replica uses a 120 hp Czech Lom engine that runs left handed) plus a non standard tailwheel assembly. After he bought it, the folks at Range Rover leased if from him and filmed a commercial for Range Rover with a vintage air racing theme down in Mexico. It was shown in the entire rest of the world, except for the US...sigh. Jim was delighted to have as pilot none other than Steve Hinton fly the plane for the commercial.

If you are in the DFW area and would like to see the ST-R, Jim Ireland is always giving tours of his cool museum/hangar. It also has around 100 R/C and other models hanging on display, plus his Pitts Special and his Champ. Drop me a line at [email protected] and I will forward his email to you.
