Default Ultra Hots

I'm a fan of the Super Hots and Ultra Hots and have both in original kit form from my active flying days in the late 80's. Flew the Super Hots at several fun flys while living in Japan and was very successful due to it's high and low speed abilities. Just wondering if others have a thing for Dan's design?

Thanks, Randy

Ordered the plans for the Big Hots during the Father's Day sale at MAN and just ordered a short kit from Don at Eureka Aircraft. Putting together my list of balsa to see what I can procure locally and what I'll need to order. Oh...and I have to figure out where I'm going to build the monster 91" wing.

I picked up a nice Super Hots in an estate sale. I installed an OS GT 33 GASSER on the nose and am about finished with the install. I have to put quite a bit of weight on the nose for balance.
Should be flying soon.

From my experiences most of the Hots series build on the tail heavy side. I'm looking at a G62 with mag ignition to power mine. I'm thinking it may take a 5 lbs engine to balance.

GIZMO,

A 33cc on a Super Hots? Are you sure? All of my Super Hots always ran a .60 (OS60)! I believe you may have a larger version of the Hots,Yes? Anyway, it is great to hear from "Hots" fans.

Best regards, Randy

It's the 82 in. version. It was apparently outfitted with a large 2 cy. OS 4 stroke from what I was told. The GT 33 fits very nicely and is way too light to balance. It is going to take a pound plus for sure even with the stand offs as far as I could make the engine
work with the cowl (new as the old one was cut up). Mine is the Ultra Hots..........

Good to know, The GT 33 should out perform my old G 38 hands down.

I built a 78" Hots powered by an OS 91 two stroke a few years ago. it may be of some interest - http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_96...tm.htm#9627908</p>

have built a bunch of .40 size Hots, a couple of .60 size. Dan S. did a wonderful job, and I sure owe him thanks for such a fun plane to build, and to fly. My favorite by far.

Well I removed the 33 and put on a DLE 55 because of the extreme weight penalty of using the 33......the plane balanced after adding about 8 oz, in addition to the larger engine yet because of the location of the weight the plane is
still much lighter. Flew it the first time a week and a half ago, one click on the Ail is all that it needed. Talk about a rush, so much power and speed..............anyway I need to change tires for clearance as I tipped a prop on landing
as there is not much clearance and my tires were a little soft for such a large plane. Will post photos soon!
