Anyone wanting one of these nice kits. PM me. I even have an extra new cowl and wingtips in the kit that was ordered with it.

Sir, did Sig used a pull pull set on the tail wheel on the Bravo as your picture shows on your thread? Thank you. Charles

It is as from the plans. The servo connects to a bellcrank that drives a rod to the rudder then there is a connectin rod that drives another bellcrank for the pull pu for the tailwheel

How would a DLE-30 do in the Bravo?

Probably would fly the plane but due to CG and more than enough space the DLE 55 is the engine for this bird

If I build my kit sted of selling it, I will be installing a Dl-55. If for nothing else, the WT advantage.

Ok, checking my options.
I have a DLE-30 NIB as well as a 56cc engine. Trying to decide if I want to buy a kit.
Thanks!!

Buy the kit ! It's an enjoyable build, as are all the Sig Craftsmen Series kits.

Tom. Your very right about that. I've built Sig kits for years and every one of them was a pure joy.

Willig10:
You said that due to the CG, the DLE 30 is not a good engine. Does this mean the plane will be tail heavy with this engine? Does the DLE 55 overpower the plane?

If you go to youtube or look in earlier posts search for morrisey bravo maiden. You will under superglenn1966 see the maiden of my DLE55 powered bravo. This is the perfect engine. When assembled my cg came out perfect woth no weight added. Bear in mind you do not need to fly full throttle. My typical day was 100% power for takeoff and then about 1/4 to 1/2 throttle to fly.

Is the Morrisey pretty easy to fly? I'm getting back into the hobby after several years of not flying, and I will be starting out with a trainer and Big Stik. I've had the Morrisey kit for years, but never finished building it.

Sounds like you might have a 50cc engine to turn that prop.C/G should be good but you may want to check that plus all your connections, hinges etc..I'm looking forward to getting at mine but I still have a couple of projects to finish up..good luck with that ,,give us some pics....

Nice bird. Your gonna enjoy that Bravo. Don't wipe it down to hard and it will look a little weathered/scale. I keep seeing these Nice Bravos i may just hold on to my kit stead of selling it.

WOW tonight I got home early enough to have a few minutes free time I pulled the cowling and the wing removed the old channel 11 dual conversion fm receiver and old battery pack got to look over the engine to determine what it has for power found out it is a Zenoah G62PU hope it runs I want to replace the fuel lines, oil it up good and replace the spark plug get the ar6200 and new receiver pack installed then I will try to start and run a tank thru it before putting the cowl and wing back on ... i'm getting pretty excited to hear it run it has a Bennett muffler engine turns over pretty well . the neighbor who I purchased it from asked when I might be ready to give it a shot I told him at least a week or two with all the other irons in the fire and time contraints

Great thread! Nice planes guys!
I built one of these many years ago. Painted it just like the box and it had a Zenoah on it,
it was the smaller engine but it flew just like a trainer.
I sold it to a club member and he flew the fire out of it too.

I have been looking at the AMR website for the new Bravo. Still not on the website. I can't wait to see it. I have been bitten by the building bug again and am seriously contemplating a Meister P-47 for my next project. I suspect it will be a lengthy build due to my travels but am looking forward to the challenge. You guys have a great day.
